Had a mates PC over the weekend to remove the usual assortment of nasties,he hadn't scanned with anything since the day I set it up,333 days ago,last time ad-aware was updated!!!!
Anyway it is still running slow,taking 5+ mins to startup,a fair lag after clicking on anything and it opening up.
Done so far;ran Eiwdo,Norton,Ad-ware,Spybot,A-Squared in safe mode.Used Ccleaner,removed all bar anti-virus and firewall from startup and tweaked some settings a little.
The PC is a Packard Bell imedia 1306 which comes with just 256 mbs of memory of which 64 is taken by the on-board graphics.I am leaning to wards adding more memory as a possible solution but would be grateful for any other suggestions.

Thats way too long on a startup, yes extra Ram will help try Soing Start then Run type in msconfig then use the search click here and untick anything not required.
