I know a few threads have treated this subject but couldn't find the answer I needed in any of them.
Ok, I''ll expose the situation.
Fixing a friend's computer and it's absolutely slow. To the point when starting task manager takes 10 minutes.
It's so slow (even in safe mode) that I can't run even run basic tasks like Defrag. It still has lots of free disk space, it's only running a few processes (9 actually) but extemely sloooooow.
Does anyone have any tips on where to start to get it running a bit faster just so that I can run a virus scan or something?
