The other day we bought a used Compaq Presario with the following specs.:
Celeron CPU 2.50GHz 2.49GHz 120 MB of RAM
32.2 GB hard drive with 21.8 GB free space
The problem is that it runs so excruciatingly slow that it literally takes several minutes just to open a program. In safe mode it is better but it still runs very slow.
I have dumped several programs hoping to speed it up and ran Malwarebytes, SpyBot, CCleaner, and have installed CA Internet Security Suite that comes free from our internet provider. I ran a full scan with that and it found a few threats with 76% of them being P2P, but it didn't solve the problem.
Is there some way that I could find out what is causing it to run so slowly?
Thank you for your help!
