  1. Hello, I am running a dell deminsions 2400 w/a

    2.8 CPU and 1024 RAM. A few days ago

    my unit slowed almost to a standstill.

    it is practically useless if you

    don't have all day to sit watching

    nothing happen.

    The task manager show 100 % usage.

    Checking out the process window in the

    manager none of the active processes

    are out of the nome and all of them

    added together does not come close to

    being a 100%. There were no recent installs or downloads. Can anybody point me in the right direction to solving this problem. I miss my computer.

    To begin with run CCleaner (let me know if this increases the response afterwards)

    Next confirm Antivirus is up to date and do a full scan
    Next run Malwarebytes, and remove anything found

    Sorry it has taken me so long to get back. Been on Vacation. The CCleaner worked wonders on my unit. For a second, I was startled at the quick responses I was getting. Since the unit was given me by my daughter it has never been this fast. Kimsland thank you so much.
