how i improve my computer speed

THere are many available utilities software which helps you on improving computer speed.

My recommendation, is the one I am using called TuneUp Utilities 2011.

Norton has its own. THere are many, but I prefer the one I mentioned.

These programs will have a registry cleaner, hard disk defragmenter, it will give you many options to improve your system.

But if you are low on budget.

1. Do a hard disk defragmenter, included on system tools on windows start menu ---> accessories
2. Clear the startup programs on unnecessary programs. Do this by running MSCONFIG, and clear the startup programs you think you don't need.
3. Install more memory, you have to check which memory is compatible with your computer.

God Bless You!!!

hi my computer runs real slow ive use mcafee to try to clean it but it seems to be still running slow

Click Start-> Run, type msconfig and click Ok. The System Configuration Utility will start. Now click on Startup tab. You will see a list of programs which starts automatically when Windows starts.
In that list, uncheck the program items, which you generally don't use. It will make your computer a little faster.
The above procedure can also be modified a little, that is uncheck all items under Startup tab, restart your computer.
Now check one item at a time, restart computer and test the speed of your computer. This way, you will find the programs, which are making the computer show. Remember to use a pen and paper to take a note about which items you are selecting or unselecting.

Please try one more thing:

Open Start-> Settings-> Control Panel-> System. Click on Advanced tab. Under Performance, click on Settings, click on Adjust for best performance, click Apply and Ok.

Then do this Click->Start->Programes->Accessories->System Tools->Disk Clean Up and select the C:Drive and clean it

my computer is really slow. any suggestions?

You can do the following:

1. Perform a Disk Cleanup to delete all uneccessary files from your computer. Click Start button, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk Cleanup. Choose drive C: and check all the boxes and start cleanup by hitting Ok.

2. Do a virus scan. The computer might be compromised thus performing so slow. Here's an effective and free online scan: http://eset.com/onlinescan

3. Defrag your computer. Go to Start >> All Programs >> Accessories >> System Tools >> Disk Defragmenter. This is used to increase access speed by rearranging files stored in your computer.

4. Check for your computer's memory. If you have 2 memory sticks installed, one might have failed. Right click your My Computer and choose Properties. On the general tab, check if it still giving you the value of memory that you used to have on your computer.

Hope this helps.
