Winaso or Pc Doctor Pro

by Taram60 / November 18, 2005 9:03 PM PST

Hi, I need a little help to decide which of these two programmes to buy, Winaso or Pc doc pro. I am having problems with my computer running slow and crashing. I have been been looking at them on C/net, they both seem good programmes. I have installed them both, but still cannot decide which one to buy. I would be very grateful for any advice on which one is the best.

Many thanks, Taram

I have Windows Xp pro and IE6

I use neither. Here's my protocol.

1. Remove the case cover to sniff out heat issues. Non-negotiable since CPU temp reports only that area and we want to figure it out.

2. Run EWIDO from to toss out what it finds.

3. Run HOUSECALL and toss what it finds.

4. Look up XP DMA on and set the IDE channels to PIO. Then go back and set them to DMA. Simple procedure documented and can help.

In closing, you may have a Pentium 2 with 128 megabytes of RAM but didn't share that.

Sorry for the late reply, I have been away from the computer. Thanks Bob for your help, I will do what you have suggested, to see if it fixes the problem. I have AMD Athlon 3000+, and 512MB of ram.

Many thank, Taram
