    there can be many reasons for the system to work slow...try defragging it....i would recommend Norton Systems Works for defragging also u will be able to take care of some other issues with you system like registry corruption etc...........and pls do post the specs and other information...so that the commuinty can access what exactly can be wrong with the box.

    If you really think it's hacked, then you'll also want to scan for stuff like trojans. Tauscan has a great scanner, but it's only free for 30 days. Still, 30 days is plenty of time to find and remove any trojans you may have. You can find it here http://www.agnitum.com/download/tauscan.html.

    *edit*
    I just realized that the maker of Tauscan (the actual scanner) is Agnitum. I made it sound like Tauscan was the company. Agnitum also has a great firewall (Outpost).

    Heh, "patch". It's true though, suse

    Unfortunately, I haven't been able to really dive into *nix stuff yet because I want a seperate hard drive first. I can play with it on other peep's computers but not on my own yet . Not to mention that I have to figure out how to make it all *work*. Btw, why do you have two versions of windows on your computer? I guess there's some point to it, but I don't understand.....

    If youd like some help, either send me a PM or reply with what hardware you have and what you use your computer for and I can probably help you out and get you into Linux.

    Also please let me know what OS you use right now and how big your HD is.

    Try this from Symantec.

    It will help to diagnose any disk 'clutter' or any errors that may be present. I don't think that it's anything too serious.

    The one that you **** when you see it is "Primary master Disk Fail' on bootup! That's a BITCH!

    Good luck with your prob, hope this helps a bit....

    My friend sent me a trojan server once for BEAST, and it seriously slowed up my computer, it ran IEXPLORE at like 95% system resources so i was crawling... you could possibly have that. I had to reinstall windows. I think you should backup your files incase you have to do anything like that. and also think about upgrading to XP.
    Whoever said Assembly was dead?
