    Tried originally with 1 stick of 1gb RAM, thought it was that and swapped it with another 1 gig, same issue. Now its running with 2x 1gb sticks. The computer ran for years on 1 gig no issue up until this problem started. Right before the issues started about a week or two ago there had been no software or hardware changes.

    I'll try that. With the system being so slow, would it be ok to connect the HDD onto my HDD dock and scan as an external drive or would they have to be run through Windows itself?
