  1. 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:

    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!
