Hi there. So my m8 is a bit of a n00b and he ased me to fix his computer after he noticed it was running very slow. So, I installed Spybot. AVG pro, ad-aware pro, registryfix 5.5 and CCleaner. I ran them all..... an cleared up literally thousands of problems. Re-ran them all to find that it had done the trick. He had HUNDEREDS of background processes running on his computer, practicly every program set to run on start-up, and his disk was fragmented like a b***h. So i defragged' for a while and did other things like uninstall LOADS of unneeded programs, deleted many things using HijackThis. (I do no what to delete that is safe etc.) HOWEVER, It is still lagging alot and I need to ask if there is anything else I can find to remove or see if I can do anymore.
