Hello, I use a laptop that uses Windows Vista Ultimate x64 I think, I don't know too much about it because it is a relative's computer. But what I do know is i've used it before and it worked fine but today it is slow.
Windows Explorer(Not Internet Explorer) is very slow and any programs trying to be ran on it are such as games, internet browsers or just the Windows browsing in the computer itself. If I try to open something, it takes a a minute or over to open a page then sometimes slowly loads. I've already done reading all over the internet for the past 6 hours and the best results i've had is "go to msconfig and go to startup bar and click the 'Hide all microsoft services' button and then click 'disable all' , then apply then ok." I tried that and still the same issue. So I disabled ALL services including the windos services in the startup tab under msconfig which can you find by searching msconfig in the search bar. So now, not only is it still slow, I can't seem to re-enable the microsoft services either because they don't show up which also means we can't seem to format the computer because I don't think my relative has the Windows CD for it(He did not pirate it) He just has some virtual disk purchase kinda thing going on so he formats the computer from the inside.
I just don't know what to do anymore and my brain is fried and I feel like giving up.
Please let me know if anybody finds a solution.
