    hi get rid of services which you dont need on boot.
    start>run>msconfig>startup.Untick ones you dont need.
    I dont recognize all services you run but real player is on automatic updates.Idont think you need updates at all on that one.
    Mictrosoft updates you can set to update when you want start>control panel>security center>automatic updates and choose notify me for updates and then you download when you are not doing much on pc.
    You can manualy stop some processes pressing control alt delete -all 3 at same time, then look processes and click one you dont think you need running at the moment and kill it right clicking on it.
    It look like you are downloading few thing too.
    This is start.Some of other members will give you more options.
    Good luck

    What's wrong with the homepage?

    It looks like some sort of school thing?

    Yeah, I know.. It's just non standard and I like to remove everything.
    If things work normally again I'll add things, like the homepage, back.

    I noticed the proxy is pointing to an .edu too. Might not be good to remove but it might also be a cause (besides the malware) for the slowness on the whole.

    Actually, speaking of the proxy... It looks like it may very well be necessary...

    fw.thomas.edu == firewall.thomas.edu?

    I would advise that you contact your school's tech support to see if those two settings are required as part of your internet access agrement.

    Some schools also require all Windows machines to run a security service that verifies firewall, antivirus, etc.

    OK,

    CPU 3.06GHz 1.59 GHz, 512MB or RAM
    In addition to the above advice, I would suggest that 512Mb is not a large amount of RAM when you are running Windows XP. Personally, I have never built an XP box with less than 1Gb.

    1. Use this tool to get rid of the garbage on your box:

    http://www.ccleaner.com/

    2. Defragment your hard drive.

    3. Check your free space on your HDD. You must have at least 20% or 'doze starts to run like a dog.

    4. Look at your power saving settings. I don't know that model but the CPU at 3.06/1.59 tells me that it runs at around half speed when on battery power. Make sure that it is not set to this at all times

    5. Watch out for background processes such as AV scanning.

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?
