    laptop problems

    I've had my laptop a few months now but all of a sudden it's slow as hell. it has 2 Gb ram fitted and an AMD Turion ML-34 1.8Ghz processor. i have very little running in the background and the HD is only half full. does anyone have any ideas. i defrag regularly and disk clean up when i can.

    You leave out the most important thing, XP, Vista, or Linux. I am going to assume that it is Vista with all the eye candy turned on. Do thorough checks for AdAware and other malware and turn off the eye candy.

    I guess that if I had paid attention to the forum this was posted, I would have figured out that it is XP you are having problems with. The same rules apply. Check for malware and turn off the extras.

    How full is the hard drive? Try using CCleaner:
