SP3 caused a few problems to others when installed.What security programs have you got including the firewall and have you tried running them.Forget my first post as computer has hardly been used.Maybe try Winaso Optimizer [free] it will only repair 10 items at a time]Or C Cleaner to get rid of any junk.click hereclick here
If you do a restore to factory settings you will find that it takes you back prior to sp2 and you will have to install that and sp3 all over again. Better to do all the checks for viruses and spyware before resorting to restore. What firewall and AV were you running when you went back on line? Did you update them immediately before doing anything else?
I have got Mcaffe security that came with my sky internet pack i did up date it all first it took a good few hours to sort out to tell the truth because my wireless network went down i do my up dates every time i turn my comp or laptop on no matter if i down loaded them before i turned off just to be safe.im probly the most security mad fella on the web with all the up date checking i do HA thanks for the advice and i will do has you say once again thanks
Oops Sorry I just noticed you have a restore disc from Medion.Not 100% sure but that should restore it to the factory setting.Never having had a Medion I am not sure if you would loose any programs that you already have on your computer.Also just noticed that you are using a wireless connection,Maybe that is where your problem lies.Apart from McAfee what other security programs do you have on your computer including the Firewall is that from McAfee as well.
Sp3 has been giving a few folk problems.Maybe delete it from add remove and see if the computer works any faster.best way to download it is to turn of all your security programs and then install it.Just in case you have to install it again if you do a restore.
