Windows Xp Dell Laptop Slow Loading Apps & Programs
Posted 20 March 2012 - 12:13 PM
I have a Dell Inspiron 1300 XP. It boots fine, but it takes like a minute to open whatever I hit to open. Then when I hit close, it closes slowly from the top like a curtain. I run Puran Defrag, Malwarebytes, Ccleaner, Avast, and everything is up to date. Tried everything I can think of and still doing the same thing. Anyone that can help me please? This is my only baby, not new, but well kept...and I cannot afford a new one right now ;o)
I will greatly appreciate all the help you can give me.
Thanks in advanced!
