i'm wondering what'w wrong with my computer, it was pentium 4, 2.6 GHZ with 1 GB DDR memory. Also its, video card is 128. i dont what is wrong with it. I placed two HDDs, one is 40GB and the other is 80GB, does it affec the performance of it my computer??
Do you have a virus and adware scanner?
There can be some hardware or software problems. If the system is underpowered, then the performance will affect. What is ur mother board? If it support Raid on board, then do it, it will enhance the harddrive performance. It do affect the system performance. Since you have 1GB Ram, and 128MB graphics card, the system maybe powerful. Also check whether HDD is set to work in Ultra ATA mode.
Software problems are usually related to some softwares you installed on the system. Check with any startup program that how many things are loading during startup. Also you need to check the processor usage just after the system starting up. To do this right click on taskbar, and click on task manager, click on processes and click on CPU twice, then u can see the most CPU usage programs. Sometimes some buggy program may use the full CPU power, then u right click on it and end process. Then reinstall the program. This is a most common problem I have seen. The others are spywares and adwares. Simply do the scanning using different programs(Ad aware, Spybot SnD, Webroot spysweeper, Microsoft Defender)
Do try these and find out whether it solves the problem.
what are the available spyware and adware remover????
I didn't get to read many of the other posts, but I'm sure it is probably either spyware, adware, or some sort of virus. Maybe all of them!
Google Spybot S&D for spyware scanner, and Adaware SE Personal for the adaware. As for viruses, there are many great free antiviruses!
