Slow HP pavillion

  Bonynge 18:39 28 Dec 2005

This pc runs on a Celeron 2.20GHz and i have upped the ram from 256 to 512 this reads 504 on the properties window. The problem is mainly initial start up which is very sloooowow and the system freezes from time to time, getting on to line ( AOL broadband)can be a struggle and will need 3 or 4 attempts, my wife is now getting a bit irritable. There is no problem with the router as my own pc performs ok and so does her laptop. Has anybody got any ideas

Scan for spyware and malware.

start - run - type Msconfig - look under the startup tab and remove any programs not related to Firewall or antivirus.

Clear out all temporay files / folders
