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.

MY COMPUTER RUN SLOW


Usually motherboard either works or doesn't work. It won't make computer runs slow. Your computer runs slow mostly because of low memory, low diskspace available, driver issue, virus, or spyware. If you surf the web a lot, chance is your computer got spyware or malware. Install a free malware program and use it to clean up your laptop first to see if the problem is improving.

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'.

Maybe a virus


is it the internet that runs slow or everything? either way, go to the following site:

http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

click on the link that says "Scan Now. Its Free!" it will do an online virus scan of your computer, and this should get rid of any viruses you have. You may have to install Java for it to work. If so, it should provide a link to install it. If it doesnt, google "java software" and download the software. it may also be a RAM problem (not enough computer memory) but thats probably not as likely if your computer is new. Also, you can go the task manager and delete all of the processes that you think arent needed (such as itunes, etc. make sure that your user name is under the user name column for each one you are deleting, and DO NOT delete the "explorer" process or any system processes). And this may speed up your computer as well.

Runs slow


It depends how old your computer is. If your computer is more than 5 years old, there will be a problem since the driver software will not be advanced enough. I reccomend installing new driver software. Look it up. Good Luck.
