Default Help my comp is soo sloww!!!

Intel Pentium4 3.00ghz
ASUS P5AD2 DEluxe motherboard
Stealth 400wat powersupply
Nvidia PCX 5750 (PCI-E)
Kingstom 512ram

My other comp has

Intel Pentium 4 2.40ghz
MSI 845E MAx motherboard
350 wat powersupply
kingston 512 ram
Nvidi Geforce Ti 4200 (AGP)

The 2.4ghz comp runs faster in almost everything... games...surfing the internet... and other stuff... You think it could be a virus or just the fact that the 5750 sux with the games i play?

Also, you might need to defragment if you use the 3.0GhZ computer more often.

Definetely. But, are you willing to lose all your files on your PC? If not, make sure to back them up. And finally, ABSOLUTELY MAKE SURE you have all your Utilities CD's.

you just must have a lot of junk and crap on your computer that is making it slower. formatting would do the trick. before you do that though, try doing some spyware scans, virus scans and clean out the registry, delete all your unused files and defrag the hd. that should help quite a bit.
