I'm running a 4 yr old computer a hp intel pentium(R) 4 3ghz and 1.5gb ram 128mb graphics.

I have noticed lately that when i run a app like cafe world on facebook my computer hardrive is running at about 65% when checking my task manager and processes I have 51 apps in the processes list and firefox is using about 60% with just cafe world running. so all in all just seems like my comp is running like a pig lately.Had some viruses recently but im sure trend micro pro removed them all as they are not showing up anymore.

Is it because my comp is too old? any feed back would be great

cheers :)

p.s will be doing a custom build computer early next year :)

I would guess your computer is probably bloated with a bunch of crap and probably needs a clean out.

Backup you stuff and consider doing a reformat and fresh install.
