Hi, My friend has a very slow vista laptop that im trying to help him with. It has 2gb of Ram, i have run SuperAntispyware and Malwayebytes scans that have found a few nasties but it is still verrrrry slow. I put Avast on there and updated it put when i run a scan it hangs on 1%.
I have the task manager up at the moment with nothing (seemingly) running and the CPU usage is 1% but the memory is permanently on around 770mb.
I posted that September last year and the thread is locked so i can not add to it.
The update is that the laptop is still slow but the Avast does not 'hang' anymore but the laptop is still slow. i have uninstalled the programs it does not need and use Soluto to disable the programs that need not be started but still my friend gets the message that the Recovery drive is full.
Please can i ask would this impact on the laptop's performance? The C drive has 20gb free out of 200gb.
