I have an HP Vista. It is crazy slow whether I use Firefox (my preferred), IE, Safari or Opera. It especially has problems running anything that uses Flash Player or Java. For example, Facebook's Millionaire City. But, youtube videos load and play fine. My info is below. I've tried to give you everything I can think of including the dxdiag and hijackthis. I am on 3Mbps DSL hardwire. I never download music or movies. I don't play games that require a lot of oomph. Just want to open browser windows, get email, check FB, play some dumb games like Mil City or Bubble Island to wind down... I use Microsoft Security Essentials, Iobit Advanced System Care 3 Professional Version, CCleaner.exe with a 35 Gutman wipe, and don't seem to have any viral type issues. My Iobit Smart Ram shows me running between 170 and 250 most of the time and I have a 1GB card. Let me know if you need to know something else.

Looks like you have 1GB of ram, 128MB of which is being used by your video card. That is not enough to run Vista well in. If I were you, I would upgrade to a minimum of 2GB and preferably 4GB. I think you will see a definite improvement.

I couldn't tell from your attached files, are you running 32 or 64 bit?

Would also be good to run a PCPitStop Full Test. Here is my canned response for PCPitStop:

Please Run the PCPitstop Full Tests, here: PCPitstop Full Tests

You must use Internet Explorer as it needs to install an ActiveX program.

Note: Vista users with UAC must first Right-click IE - Select "Run as Administrator"

If you haven't already registered, Click - Sign up now! (left hand column in User Login)

Register and create a password
Accept the ActiveX component to allow your machine to run the Full Tests
Registering and accepting the ActiveX are both SAFE and FREE.

The Full Tests take less than 5 minutes for most machines.

Once you have your Results, please post the URL (the http:// stuff) back here into this thread for review.

Note: Vista users, please close your instance of IE "Running as Administrator" after you are finished reviewing your Results.

Caution: During the testing of Video Adapter, a variety of patterns, shapes, colors and text are “flashed” onto the users monitor screen. In the many thousands of daily uses of the PCPitstop Full Tests over several years, two individuals who suffer epilepsy experienced discomfort and temporary dizziness when viewing the flashing patterns.

If you know that you are susceptible to photo driven seizure, please look away from your screen during the Video Adapter testing sequence.

Note: The PCPitstop Full Tests Results is a free service, but is supported by various paid product advertisements for utilities that "could" remedy the OP's problem.

Since this site is a "free-help" forum, we do not recommend or endorse purchase of automated utilities, and will assist you in manually correcting any problems and settings necessary to optimize your machine's performance. Ask your questions here. We'll help you walk through any necessary steps.

It is 32 bit. And to the other person, as I stated I run ASC Pro daily anti-virus software to protect against viruses, spyware, etc.

As soon as you get the PCPitStop link posted, please follow Jimbo1's direction and post in the malware area. ASC Pro daily anti-virus is not sufficient to protect you from malware infections. No single AV or Spyware program is sufficient any more unfortunately.
