My Computer Is Slower Than A Three Legged Turtle

Hey All,

I recently installed a 4GB RAM Stick to increase my 4GB memory to 8GB in the hopes that it would speed up and even improve my computer's all around performance. Since I added the stick, nothing has changed really. I'm just wondering if I'm doing something wrong. Below is a screenshot of all of my installed programs and a link to my computer specs. I was just wondering if you can tell by the screenshot if I need to add or remove any of these to improve my computer's performance. Suggestions of things to try. Below all of this is a list of the things I've tried to combat this slowness. I'm using Windows 7 and Firefox if that helps any.

SPECS

http://h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/sit...4892.492883150

THINGS I'VE TRIED

1. Ran Malwarebytes
2. Ran Latest Avast Free Version scan.
3. Uninstalled all of the card games and crap that come with the computer.
4. Restored system to factory default.
5. Ran CHKDSK utility for errors.
6. Used system enhancing software such as System Mechanic.
7. Scanned for corrupted files.
8. Disabled a couple of startup programs.
9. Defragged

I can't think of anything else to try. Any help would be just great. Thanks for viewing.

I'm not good with pcs, but turtles have flippers, not legs. You're thinking about the tortoise, KD ;D
