computer running very, very slowly RRS feed

  • Question

  • My HP desktop if running very slowly. It was never running spectacularly well, but when I installed a new, licence for ESET anti-virus on Nov 1/10, it really went downhill (the old license had expired). Even something as basic as saving an ordinary short document in MS word takes several seconds. I run MS Office 2007 Professional. In Windows System Maintenance I ran the "alarm events" function and got a large number of warnings saying "Dhcp client -- Address Configuration Statement event - error 1001". I also had several errors or warnings for Event 10024 and 10023 - something called "gatherer". I did a system restore back to early September, but the improvement was only marginal. Can you assist me? Many thanks
