I am formating my sytem every week due to slow processing
Config- PIII 500,win2000prof,using internet with macafee antivirus.
system is OK for two three days after fresh installation. after one week it is going to be slow. I had tried to delete tmp files,history contents, still it is going to be slow. Anybody can help with good solution.
you have not told us some crucial info, what are the softwares installed on your system apart from the typical ones?
does the system randomly starts slowing down after the first couple of days or does it slow down after a particular installation of a certain software?
what are the indications upon which you are saying that the system is slow? is the loading of the OS slow, or general functions, or softwares running slow, gaming slow etc etc?
let us know some of these details
and there's one more thing, your registry...
try getting some sort of registry cleaner and run it and check for any signs of improvement. same for spywares and adwares, get some get cleaners for them as well, and do a full scan
whats you drive access like ?
is the HDD light almost always on ? do you ever get a system scan at bootup saying that the file system needs to be scanned ?
if the above is yes it might be your hdd on its way out.
you could reinstall your os one last time then download a demo app called deepfreeze , install it and when running it will prevent any changes being made to the drive partition you locked this is great for so many reasons i se it for trials and demo software
anyway the point is that if after 3 days of the machine being locked you get the same fault its unlightly to be an application.
