So I recently had to reformat my laptop because of a virus that I had obtained. My laptop is a Compaq Presario and is about 2 years old. It has an AMD 64b processor, an ATI Radeon graphics card, only 80g on the computer hard drive, and then I have a 120gb External hard drive. So anyways I just reformated about 3 days ago, it was running ok for the first 2 days, and I have been kind of just reinstalling all the old programs I had (just standard programs like Itunes and things like that), and then yesterday I installed both a 2000 version of Microsoft Office, an antivirus program called something like Trendmicro Pccillin or something along those lines. And now my computer is running as slow or slower then if AOL made an operating system. Ive tried exiting the antivirus program as well as turning off all the security stuff for windows (Windows Firewall, Auto Updates, and Virus Protection) but its still running slow as anything. I cant stand my laptop running so slow, and really am open to any ideas. Thanks for the help.
