    That's depend of how much mmory you have and what is running..

    If I were you I'd run those tests frequently. You don´t have too leave spyware doctor allways on (look at tray), just run it for infections search.
    One other thing that might be usefull, take a look at the processes that are running, an see wich one is using more system resources. If you have some program running when you don´t want, go to the program options and stop it.
    If each time you reboot your pc this program stills starting with OS, better unninstal it and instal it again. Running a regular anti-virus can help as well. I don´t know if I made myself clear, so i leave you a screenshot.

  9. lol don't even bother with MS Anti Spyware or Adaware.
    total crap.
    combined they found 8/187 problems on my comp... the ones below found almost all of them.


    - SpyWare Doctor
    - Webroot Spysweeper

    If you're too cheap for that run CounterSpy, also very good and free.
  10. definatly spyware... can you send a screenie of your cpu utilisation chart where it has been on idal for a while... if your getting big jumps in cpu useage (and not runing folding@home, seti@home etc) then you definatly have virus/spyware problems ;)
  11. They're both fine... they are free, after all.

    I find a combination of MS Antispyware, Ad-Aware and Spybot S & D works to get rid of pretty much all spyware.

  16. but does the only reason is cause of spywares?
  17. probably yes, but check your Page File size too, it should be 1.5 times bigger than the amount of ram on the system.
  18. Chances are you also have stuff running that you dont need.

    I saw processes named 'helper' in a task list... IMO those are suspect. probably not adware or a virus, but something you can get rid of.
    Put your mouse cursor over each icon in your system tray. if its something you use a lot - keep it. if not - get rid of it. either by uninstalling the program, or disabling the icon.

    example:
    I saw an nvidia icon in your system tray. that runs as a process. If you use the features on that menu, then keep it. if you dont.. disable it.

    My laptop boots up and shows 17 processes running under windows 2000, so its possible to drasticly reduce the number of processes.

    page size? what do you mean?
  20. Ever hear of "msconfig"? Run that and disable everything in the startup such as "Itunes", but don't turn off your virus scans and such. See if that helps. Also, try not running too many programs at once. Photoshop is a huge program!

    page size? what do you mean?

    Page file size. Basically when you pc runs out of ram, uses the hard disk drive to simulate ram (random acess memory), and thats bad, because it is going to run slow. Your Page file size should be 1.5 or 2 times your ram size, so if yiu got 256mb your PF would be 384 or 512, at 512 it should be 768 or 1 gig.

    Right click in My Computer and Properties>Advanced>Performance(in English?)>Definitions>Advanced>Virtual Memory> Change.
    If you have twoHDD divide it for the two.

  26. Wouldn't hurt to run "msconfig" and disable the stuff you don't need.

    msconfig is easy to use, and if you disable something that you need, you can always go back and turn it on again.
    start by removing _everything_ .. then look at what you need.. turn that back on first. Go from there.
