Figure me a work in progress!
fairly new to understanding computers and all of the crap out on the market and hoping to get good advice from the legion core of people here that are not being paid by the sponsors!!!.
OK,OK,OK... here's the jest...I have a HP pavilion 622, w/ 2.80 GH, w 512 MB memory.
Norton is expiring soon, computer is slowing up while starting-up,searching, downloading, everything... can't even play decent videos any more... streaming problems.
D is a 12% available and cannot defrag,
C has 89 percent available but tried to defrag and it froze up or realllly slow.
I assume I have allot of unwanted crap... in my regestry that's hidden and maybe else where.
Having to restart often just to spead up surfing.
Note have been cleaning history and files every couple of days. What else can I do?
Recently unemployed and don't have allot of money to spend, but need my computer running so looking for best stuff that is available for free but don't want to get stuck with downloaded crap that I can't remove with out a tank. Any suggestions from the legion is appreciated... figure I need everything to get rid of the crabs and viruses holding me back!!!
Thanks to all!...
