Sometimes my computer runs that slow i have to switch the thing off, i have xp, adaware, spybot, spysweeper, norton internet security. I always clean the rubbish off my computer. Also i run regsupreme, disk cleanup, system utilities 2004 1 button checkup, and disk defrag.
I have about 50 % of hd space left, and i have 512mb ram, and intel pentium 4 2.66. I also run aol computer checkup.
Regular checkups tell me i have a fast system, with no problems.
But after all this, sometimes my computer runs as if it was a 300mhz computer, and 32 mb ram.
I have 16 programs running in the startup menu, but i know what they are, and they are needed.
Also when i run task manager, it brings up aload of programs which are using memory, but i do not know what half of these are, as they are something like dft.exe. How do you find out what program is doing what?
with system utilities 2004, in the optimize computer option it tells me that there is a program running in the background that is using a unusual amount of memory, it is the NTLOGON.exe program, which is using a high amount of memory.
I have tryed stopping this program but was advised that this is an important system file, and could cause problems if i stop it
