What is Making My computer run so SLOW!!!!
I have ad-aware, and all the other top brand adremovers that cnet recommended, and i have zonealarm, and norton antivirus 2005. On average my computer uses 230mb of my 512mb RAM that just turning on the computer, and running internet explorer. When I first got my laptop all I had to do was click on a folder and bam it was up, now there is a wait first. I have posted this same problem like 3 weeks ago and someone recommended that I defrag my computer, and to run my adremoving programs in safe mode. I must admit I did it and my computer was a little faster, but still not to where it was, and now it is back to being slower than when i defraged it. I have used 25 gigs. of my 60 gig. 4200rpm hard drive, do i need to clear up some stuff, do i need a faster hard drive, would the Ram upgrade i'm getting slove this problem, or do i just need to format my hard drive (last last choice.)
please help me. further spec of my computer is in my signature. thanks is advance.
