Hey Guys,

My parents have a 1month old 2.4Gh P4, 256Mg Ram etc. and it is struggling to open any programs and even save text in notepad. I have opened the Task Manager and have checked its Performance and the CPU is constantly running at 100% and over 3/4 of the RAM is being used. I have run a LiveUpdate in Norton AV and have ran Ad-Aware6 and deleted all viruses and spyware apparantly, however it is still dog slow...

I checked the processes in Task Manager and there is 33 processes running. Im sure there shouldnt be that much stuff running. I some one can tell me the default processes or have ne ideas on how to fix it, it would be great (and get the olds off my back when i visit them :P)

They are running windows XP Professional

Thanks,
