  1. Hi All,

    Sorry I am not a tech soi I dont know why my computer has all of an sudden started to go slowly.

    I think it is an issue with the Physical Memory.

    I have a AMD athlon 64 x2 dual core 5400+ 2.8ghz + 1.93gb RAM.

    On task manager it says

    Physical memory
    Total 1981
    Catched 1002
    Free 62

    Kernel Memory
    Total 1701
    Paged 99
    Nonpaged 71

    All help is appreciated.

    I have already done the ''Updated 8-step virus malware removal instructions'' as I though it was maybe a virus to start.

    I use AVG paid version antivirus, antimalware by malwarebytes, and Registry booster.

    God bless from

    Left Click My Computer > Right Click C Drive > Left Click Properties > The General Tab should have this information.

    Doing the updated steps is an excellent move. What did they say over there when you posted with your Logs?

    You're getting top notch help on those forums and if they say there are no infections I would trust them that their reads are correct.
