Hi- My system is a laptop (Inspiron 9300) and I'm on a Windows XP Service Pack 3: Media Center Edition. Intel Pentium 1.73GHz, 2.00GB of RAM.

My frustration comes with SLOW Windows Startup and Program Launch. It just started happening about 2 weeks ago and I have tried many solutions. At this point I have hit a "brick wall" as to where to look next. ANY/all suggestions would be helpful!

I've tried:
1) Spybot Search and Destroy
2) Ad Aware
3) CCleaner
4) Uniblue RegistryBooster
5) Uniblue DiskRescue
6) Uniblue DriverScanner
7) Uniblue SpeedUpMyPC
8) O&O Defrag
9) Windows cleaner and Defrag
10) Kaspersky AntiVirus
11) Checked my pagingfile
12) Updated BIOS and checked to see if the RAM is being recognized
13) Uninstalling Programs and eliminating Startup Programs
14) HijackThis
15) configuring my Firefox, closing it and deleting add-ons
16) ReRan through everything above.

My computer still bogs down and CPU Usage is up to 80-100%
Programs launch slowly and lag during process.
What else could i do? HELP!

Thanks for listening...
