Question about Compaq PRESARIO SR1475CL AMD Athlon 64 3400+ 2.40GHz, 512MB DDRAM, 200GB Hard Drive, LightScribe DL ... (PW711AA) PC Desktop
That's a somewhat vague question but first start off with a virus scan and an adware/spyware scan. I personally like Spybot Search & Destroy. (http://security.kolla.de) Install it and run a full scan and remove anything that it comes up with. Make sure you have the Backup option checked first, just in case. This should show you any background processes or services that belong to potentially malicious programs. In the utilities for Spybot you are also given tools to stop specific programs and services from automatically starting up when you boot your computer.
After you've taken those steps, delete your temporary internet files, then close out of everything and run Disk Defragmenter (Start > Run > dfrg.msc > Defragment). Additionally make sure that you have plenty of space on your hard drive available. If you're able to defragment though, that's a given.
If, after all this, your computer is still running slow, let me know and I'll try to offer additional help.
