So I recently acquired a compaq presario and it tends to run on the slow side. Takes me about 7 to 10 minutes to open windows xp. I have list of utilities to help get my new laptop up to par. My Utilities range from Hijackthis, Lavasoft adware, AVG, and smitfraudfix. I have run everything except Hijackthis due to my lack of knowledge in the area. Please help if you can. Not sure where to go from here.
