I have come here before and recieved fantastic support for my PC, and I am back with the same PC but with an entirely different issue. I feel like this PC is running many things and it just feels very slow for no reason. For instance, clicking Start in the lower left hand corner takes a second to pull up...sounds quick, but it should be instant like my crappy old PC in the basemeant. I am running 38 processes on this, and 28 on my PC downstairs, I cannot seem to be allowed to rid of any more on this PC. I try playing a game I love, "Scratches", and it takes longer to load on this PC which has a better graphics card, sound card and overall everything. Why!? The game also crashes time to time. Here is my HJT log: View attachment 20682 My computer specs are as follows: Windows XP Service Pack 2 Pentium D CPU 2.8Ghz 1.00 GB RAM Radeon X300/X500 Series Graphics Card Radeon X300/X500 Series Graphics Card Secondary Creative SB X-Fi Sound Card All drivers and Windows are up to date. Any and all help is extremely appreciated. Thank you so much!
