Computer running slow/Not responding..

Definitely not the local IT expert here.. my computer is running on the slower side..and internet explorer will randomly "not respond". I cleared the browsing history, cookies, cache, and have done the system defragmenting.. anything else I should try? :/

From what I have just read, I don't think its related to overclocking. I think it may be more of an "over protection" issue. I ran a hijackthis log.. would you mind if I emailed it to you? Confused

Please do.

The Overclocking discussion is just one of the examples where folk start off in one direction and we pop the hood and find the conflicting protection products.

We don't read the HJT logs in depth but it's a great start.
