My daughter=92s laptop has been running very slow lately. It was a
sudden change - it was taking 2-2 1/2 minutes to hit the =93click user
name=94 screen, and a full 5 minutes to finish booting.
I was pointed to the hard drive DMA>PIO issue, and got that repaired.
She=92s running AVG free, Spybot, Spyware Terminator, and ZoneAlarm
free. She also runs a lot of music downloaded through Verizon
I have an identical laptop (Dell Latitude D600, XP Pro SP2). One
thing I noticed is that my bus speed is 266 MHz, while BelcArc reports
hers as 166??
I ran some scans and have posted them on my web site, in case someone
would like to see if they can help.

it seems to me that there are
two many anti virals running.
to test this theory you might
try to boot up in safe mode
and evaluate the performance
in that mode.
if the laptop runs better in
then you might want to consider
configuring your system for a
a clean boot disables all non
microsoft startups and services
when booting to normal mode.
then figure out which process
is bogging down the laptop in
normal mode by enabling them
one by one.
