Computer running real slow

Postby heartshapednoose » Thu Apr 28, 2011 2:09 pm

Ok, Here are my specs, windows xp home sp3, home built computer out of spare computer parts in a systemax tower and motherboard from systemax. 120gb hd, 1.6 ghz pentium 4 cpu, 2x256 ram = 490 mb, SiS661FX/GX Mirage Graphics, dvd rom, cd rw, multimedia card reader, and thats about all i can think about now.

Now for the problem,

I built this computer myself about a year ago, when i first built the computer it worked pretty fast and smooth. about a month ago the computer pretty much went to a dead halt. when you try to open ie or google crome it takes forever if it even loads and after a little bit of use you cant even get task manager or anything to open. i have done multiple virus scans with malwarebytes, super antispyware, and spybot s&d cleaned out all they found and they dont find anything now but problem still continues. I have ran chkdsk /f chkdsk/r and still no help. I am running out of ideas of why this computer is all of a sudden going extremely slow. please give me some ideas to what could be wrong here. Thanks.

Sounds like you might have a trojan.

Download and install: HiJackThis. Now Run it and post a copy of the Log File in a new thread in the Hijackthis forum.

**(Always create a Folder for HiJackThis anywhere but your Temp/Temporary Internet Folders. This is where it will save the backup files needed if there's a problem.)**

Create a new thread in the Hijackthis forum and we can take a look at it.

is that the 120gb HDD a IDE drive?
Check the IDE in the device manager and make sure it is not PIO mode.
also check the HDD controller onboard.

reset the Bios may help.
