Hi,

Most computers after some time would run slower than when the OS was first installed. This is because in the course of use, several applications installed would be loading up the system. If this is the case (fast before but now slow), pls try:

  • run. scan and clean (with) your antivirus;
  • download, install and run Ad-Aware;
  • clean your temp and temporary internet files;
  • defrag your HD;
  • run "msconfig" and in the Startup tab, un-check everything except perhaps your anti virus;
  • goto Start, All Programs, Startup and remove any start up programs that are not essential;
  • examples of non-essential startup programs are: Google Update/Notifier, Acrobat Reader update, Nero check,
  • tweak/trick your OS;
  • optimize memory usage (must be familiar with registry settings).
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Et1810 runs very slow


There are lots of little things that slow down a computer, mostly it is programs that are running, but day to day clutter can slow your computer down too.
A good thing to try is to download a good program like Ccleaner or Reginout. I personally Use Reginout because i don't believe on free products.
It will analyze your computer, and clean up all that it can safely clean, inducing your registry.
It works well, and is 100% reliable.

Laptop computer runs slow


Mostly laptop runs slow issue occurs due to broken Windows registry entries. Fixing registry will help you to boost up your laptop. You need to download and install a Registry Cleaner program to fix corrupt or broken registry entries. To download a reliable registry cleaner, go to famous website download.cnet and search there Reginout. Which I personally use and recommend the friends. After downloading run all of its tools one by one except Internet Optimizer, to clean all the junks and registry errors from your computer.

Computer turns itself off and on, and it runs dog slow


Could be a virus. I had a similar one, and I had to format harddrive and install windows from scratch (was not recoverable). if you can get logged into windows, go to microsoft and download their free virus protection. if not, go buy a new emachine.

Runs slow on video downloads


Hello Sir,

downloading speed depends on internet connection not on PC specification.

If your transfer is low then downloading will also be low.

Take note that source from which you are downloading also must have reliable connection.


cheers,
Mike

Runs slow sticks


The link I've give you below is linked to CCleaner which is a registry cleaner for your computer which basically removes un-needed data e.g. Internet History, Internet cache, computer logs and it also fixes shortcuts or any files which are not working correctly.

I use this software on my computer every time I shut down and it has made my computer work much faster.

Here's the link: http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download you can download free if you select the 'alternative download'.
