My System is Still Not Performing - Lags on video

Postby meppwc » Thu Aug 06, 2009 4:11 am

I am really frustrated. I still cannot get my machine to run the way that it used to (fast)

I have to assume that I still have problems that possibly related to virus or adware.

My system is:
Antec 900 - 650W ATX
Intel DQ35JOE
Intel Core 2 DUO Q6600 Quad Core 4gb
2gb 800mhz DDR2 DIMM
500gb SATA 7200rpm
Alpha Dog gForce FX 8800 512 pci
XP Pro SP2

I run Trend Micro, Free version of Malwarebytes, CCleaner, Super Anti-Spyware.

I have done defrag, chkdsk, disk cleanup, deleted Prefetch files, changed my XP settings to "Performance".

I am totally lost. Things in general lag.................when I use a program that displays videos it gets choppy and lags.

I have insured that Windows OS is up to date in addition to my NVIDIA video driver (GeForce 8800 GT)

Can anyone please suggest something that I can do, there must be something running on this machine causing this.

You are not running XP with SP3? SP3 does make improvements, worth updating to that...... Go to the windows folder and delete ALL the contents of the folder named PREFETCH (but don't delete the folder)... Delete all your temp files... Update your video and audio codecs (I use the Klite codec pack, you can download it from filehippo....)
