You have 2GB of memory and your system is able to handle 4GB. So increasing the amount of memory you have will be one solution.

One more thing we can do is to cut down on what you are running. Please download Autoruns. Once you have it, extract the files to your desktop and then run Autoruns.exe. When you start it the scan is automatic. When it is done running click on File and select Save As, type in a name and save the log to the desktop. Now zip the file up and attach it to your next reply.

For some reason that did not work. Lets try something a bit more oldschool.

Download http://spywarehammer.com/Tools/HijackThis.exe and install it. Once it is running click the Open the Misc Tools Section Then click the Generate Startuplist log button. DO NOT check the two boxes next to the button. When you get a log, post the results here.

Should I upgrade my memory? If so, what kind?

I will probably get kicked for this, but I get all my memory upgrades thru Crucial.com. But there are other places you can get it as well.

Hijackthis did not show what I wanted to look at.

I need you to right click on the taskbar and select task manager and give me a list of everything in the startup tab. All I need is the name of the program, no need to list the location or any of the other info. Just the name of the program.

I attached what i saw. I hope this is what you wanted.

it says I have a 2gb x1. Does that mean I only have 2 slots and I need to get 2 2gb memory pieces to max out at 4GB?

According to Crucial you have two slots. So to get to the 4GB you would need to get 2 2GB sticks and then remove the 2 1GB sticks you have and replace it with the 2GB sticks.

But I just noticed something with the image you sent. It only shows 52% of the memory being used. Do you have the problem with slow loading programs all the time, or only after your computer has been on and running for a while?

The programs load slow all the time and it does not matter how long it runs . The net is slow most of the time. If I have the net on for more than an hour the sound stops working and I have to reset my computer to get the sound back.  Transitioning between the net and the another program creates hang ups and slowness.

Lets try a couple things before you buy the memory.

There is a program called CleanMem. Before I started using Windows 8.1 I used this tool and it worked great. What it does is clean the memory of all unused information. Does a good job.

Next you need to defrag your harddrive. I know windows has its own built in defrag tool that is suppose to run on a schedule, but I never really liked how much it did not defrag. The tool I use is Diskeeper. There is a trial version available. If you have your own solution, then run that. But do as deep a defrag as you possibly can.

Let me know how that goes.

It still does the same thing. Should I get the memory?

There is one more thing to try before it comes to that. DO a clean boot in Windows.

I need you to reboot windows cleanly. To do that please go to the run command and type in msconfig . Once that starts, select selective startup, and then uncheck the load startup items. Now click on the services tab, and down near the bottom of the window, check the box that says Hide all Microsoft Services now go up and uncheck all the services still listed, make sure you scroll down the list if need to unselect all the non Microsoft services. Now click apply, then click OK and reboot the computer. Now see how it runs. Once you know how it runs, then run msconfig again select normal startup then click apply then OK and reboot the computer. Let me know how it went.
