Tried the obvious of removing all the cr*p from my hard drive, but is there anything I could do in terms of hardware? Any general suggestions appreciated!!


Add some more RAM perhaps.

You need to give more info about what hardware you currently have.

More RAM is about all you could probably do. Best course of action is a full format

A little but they come with different options so run this tool and paste the info in or file/ create report file then upload it or screen capture relevant bits

best bet is file / create report / quick HTML like from 1 of my computers below
