Windows updates

Do not install all the updates for the windows operating systems , they will just make your system slow and would demand larger memory , just install the defender updates for security .

acer aspire very slow

usually this is a case when it is already attacked by a virus or so ...Or the programs you run on it are to demanding on the resources ..If in the same configuration used to work well and this is a new thing ..it means it is issued and need to be reinstalled..Use the recovery partition or recovery disk to reinstall the OS ..
save all important files from C drive (C partition ..and also from desktop and my documents ) and move them into D drive ..or back-up on a disk .
If you do not have a recovery partition.. use a boot-able disk with the operation system ..and reinstall it clean .make sure you have the drivers for it saved somewhere cause after the installing they will be missing ..
If you do not have any of that ... download a image with the operation system you need and burn it on a disk using Nero t make it boot-able .
Ask for instructions if you do not manage .
remember to check the resources available of your computer and if you upgraded to windows 7 from xp ..and this caused the slow running ...it will be a wise decision to get back to xp ..or upgrade the ram memory if you want it to run faster..Also the cpu is best to be faster to run a operation system demanding as the windows 7 is .
let me know if you have problems ..in the process..

my computer run slow

try to click on start->run->type"msconfig"->then in starup then disable all programs you want but dont disable critical sys programs. This will make sure that all these programs will not star with windows. It will free up memory. You can also try to reinstal System or buy more memory.
