I am running Windows 2000 and I am experiencing problems and I don't know what to do anymore. My system is running slow and stagnet. It is a PIII 256 MB RAM and a 20GB HD. I was getting virtual memory errors. Then the system started running slower. I deleted one virus and have removed numerous adware and spyware from the system. Yet it still runs slow. I noticed that there might be registry problems so I downloaded a registry cleaner and used that to remove additional errors on the system. Yet it still runs slow. I have noticed that the CPU percentage at an idle state is at a minimum of 24% when no programs are running. When I start to use other programs the CPU usage maxs out and the system shuts down some programs or stalls them. Norton is not detecting any additional viruses and I have no idea what to do. Please help :?:
