Recently I started having issues with some sites downloading slowly, other sites freeze my computer up entirely. When I booted yesterday, it booted in safe mode by itself. Scanned with Multi Virus Scanner and Avast, nothing found.

Runnung Win ME.

Would someone check my HJT log. The only version of HJT that will open on this compter is 1977, so thats what this is....

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I have 64Mb of ram. I uninstalled Java and reinstalled the latest version for Winme. I also uninstalled the Winpatrol. I did, however, download a trial of TwealRAM and although my computer isn't 100%, there is about an 80% improvement. It still lags a bit but I haven't had any total freezes. Heres my latest HJT, and Thanx Speedy.

Get some more memory 64Mb is pretty minimal. Another 128Mb would be a cheap and effective upgrade.

Get rid of tweakram, programs like this do nothing. If youre using Avast home, right mouse on the a in the taskbar / on access protection kill P2P shield (if youre not using P2P programs, doesnt look like you are), Outlook, webshield

Did everything you recommended. I have 320mb memory according to Belarc, I forgot my son worked on this a few years ago. I'll see how it behaves tomorrow, so far so good. Thanx again Speedy.

Well, you were on the right track. The sites that froze up are now just lagging a bit but everything else seems fine. Thanx speedy.
