    My computer won't move!

    It stopped moving (taking forever) after I downloaded something I thought was Windows xp. It said it would help. grrrr

    Anyway I have an emachine & window xp & use Internet Explorer.

    I went to my programs to see if I could figure out what shouldn't be there to remove it. Should I have Apple Application Support or Apple Mobile Device Support, & Apple Software Update?

    Also when I downloaded that stuff (which I'll never do again!) it added a search on my bottom tool bar that says "search desktop." In programs it says Windows search 4.0. That's probably it. Can I delete that?

    I see 2 drivers:

    2 from Realtek
    1 Intel graphics media

    Also

    Windows Media player 11
    Windows Medis format 11 runtime

    Can I delete any of these?


    thanks! Mona

      Mona, everything you've mentioned sounds legitimate. Are you saying that your computer has started to run slow?

      Try going to start>control panel>add or remove programs. Look for something you don't recognize that has been added recently.

          Foolish that's what I did when I wrote that. It's from my add/remove program.

          T8burst, thanks I'll do that!

                  Also just to be anal:

                  Start Hjt log - click Scan.
                  Once the page has opened - put a Tick mark against these entries and click Fix.

                    Thanks for helping me.
                    But I'm confused adaware gets rid of my spyware.
                    Avg is my antivirus program.
                    Noads stops pops ups!

                    So why them?

                        One thing you might want to try is to open your browser (Internet Explorer) and select Tools>Manage Add-ons. Here you can disable anything you don't want/need. You can enable again, so no worries if you change your mind. There's not much you need. Disable one at a time and see what effect (if any) you notice.

                          This won't help if you've downloaded some junk that's infected your PC but once you can get your PC back up and running and you want to peek at a speeding it up a little bit this may be a bit helpful.

                          It's been a while since a messed with XP but a lot of times if you have an older computer with an older CPU and not much memory stuff just run slow – especially over time as you had more and more programs. Every developer wants their latest and greatest beast to be in your startup but that takes away resources such as RAM and can cause your computer to take forever to boot up, too

                          What I do is use selective startup and and choose what applications I want at start up. Your mileage may vary but it's been useful for me.

                          Do a search for msconfig - and run that as an administrator of possible with your regular account if you need to. There you'll see a tab that says startup. uncheck the ones you don't want using your resources at start up. Don't uncheck the Windows ones but there could be some that you just don't use very often that you don't want using resources at start up. you can also do it for some unwanted services on another tab there within msconfig.

                          Here's a quick article on how to get to it on XP. Just be careful of the ads. Man that page is packed full of them.

                          note: I hope this makes sense because I'm using voice software and sometimes my mouth doesn't say what my brain thinks.

                              ALOT OF THIS IS OVER MY HEAD but,,,,,,,,,,

                              The only thing I knew that I took off start up is my printer.
                              Should I left it on start up?

                              How about this?
