I found two spyware in my windows add/remove folder
I could not remove them using add/ remove
I could not remove them using ad aware either
CasProg
GameBar Toolbar for IE


My computer has been loading from starting up and operating very slowly. My applications have been freezing.I have been told that could be from spyware or a virus. I have Norton ant virus but I am currently running Stinger anti virus check
I have spybot search and destroy
ad aware

Well... looks clean from what this shows, though there are a few things that you don't need loading at startup. I also recommend uninstalling Norton completely (it's a system hog which might be causing the slowdows) and going with AVG (http://www.grisoft.com/) or TrendMicro's HouseCall online scan (http://housecall.trendmicro.com).

Open HiJackThis and click Scan. In the list that comes up, click the little checkmark boxes next to each of the following 4 items:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SunJavaUpdateSched] C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.2_04\bin\jusched.exe
O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OSA9.EXE
O4 - Global Startup: WinZip Quick Pick.lnk = C:\Program Files\WinZip\WZQKPICK.EXE

Once you have those four items checked, click Fix Checked and let it do it's thing. When that's done, uninstall Norton and try HouseCall or AVG (both free and spyware/adware clean).

Try that and see if that helps the computer speed up any.

Hi fictional_man, (and Aaron B.!)

Aaron, fictional_man came in the chat last night and asked for further assistance. Me and fictional go WAY back. :)

I still have CasProg and Gamebar Toolbar for IE after following your instructions

Install this small tool called MyUninstaller v1.20 . With it you'll be able to remove those stuborn entries in the add/remove list. MyUninstaller is an alternative utility to the standard Add/Remove applet of Windows operating system. It displays the list of all installed application, and allows you to uninstall an application, delete an uninstall entry, and save the list of all installed applications into a text file or HTML file.
MyUninstaller also provides additional information for most installed applications that the standard Add/Remove applet doesn't display: product name, company, version, uninstall string, installation folder and more.
http://freehost14.we...s/myuninst.html

Main page for the above product:
http://nirsoft.mirrorz.com/

Next, copy and paste this line into the address bar of Internet Explorer:
java script:navigator.userAgent

Post the results back into this thread.

Aaron is right about Norton, fictional_man. Norton is a BIG time system hog and slows your computer down. You will likely see a speed improvement if you get rid of it. Again, your choice, but there's my 2 cents.

Turned out to be false positives

Could there still be junk on my system(other then norton) that I don't know about?
Microsoft User groups have not answered my post on increasing speed and performance.

My computer has
AMD ATHLON XP 2000 Processor 1.66 GIghertz
1 GB RAM
80 GB HDD 30%used 40% free



What can I do to improve system performance and speed?
Do I need to physically upgrade my computer? (faster CPU,
More RAM, Clean hard drive?)

Windows allows you to change the performance settings.
What settings are recomended?


I still need a good firewall
