I have an acer mini laptop that runs painfully slow. Don't have much stored on there, and it is relatively new. More than one tab on internet is impossible and even Word takes forever, you type an

That would probably be the best solution. After that make sure that you have an anti-virus software that's good. I recommend "Windows Security Essentials" by Microsoft. It's free and I've used it for about 3 years now. It's detected mall-ware and viruses that Norton, Spy-sweeper or McAfee didn't catch.

The entire yahoo mail seems to be very slow in opening and responding to commands. Can you help?

First, try to access your Yahoo Mail in a different computer that is connected into different network.

If Yahoo Mail works correctly, then the problem has something to do with your internet browser or with your network.

Try to optimize your internet browser by clearing the cookies, cache, internet files and / or browsing history. Here's how:

* For Internet Explorer:

1. Run Internet Explorer and click on 'Tools' menu.
2. Go to Internet Options and locate the Browsing History section.
3. Click the 'Delete' button and delete the Temporary Internet Files, Cookies and History.
4. Close the Internet Explorer and re-open it.
5. Access your e-mail.

* For Mozilla Firefox:

1. Run Firefox and hit 'Tools' menu.
2. Go to 'Clear Recent History' and click the drop-down arrow for 'Time range to clear'.
3. Select 'Everything' and then click the line beside details.
4. Check browsing & download history, form & search history, cookies, cache.
5. Click "Clear Now" button.
6. Close and re-open Firefox.
7. Access your e-mail.

* For Safari:

1. Open the Safari.
2. Click the Safari menu (right beside the Apple icon) and select "Empty Cache".
3. When asked "Are you sure you want to empty the cache?", click "Empty".
4. Click the Safari menu (right beside the Apple icon) then go to "Preferences".
5. From the security dialog box, click "Bookmarks".
6. Click on "Show Cookies" button and then hit "Remove All" button.
7. Select "Done".
8. Access your email.

If the same problem occur, then it could be a network problem. Contact your ISP to verify if they're having issues.

Thank you and good luck!

Gateway M6866 laptop lags when changing websites or pages? This happens even with simple sites like yahoo.

Most likey cause is either a slow connection or a lot of folk on line at the time. If you have less than a T1 connection, heavy traffic sites such as or sites heavy in kbs, (sites containing viseo or flash intros) will take along time to load. If you dont have sufficient memory in your computer that will slow down internet browsing too.

Yahoo Set up trouble to senf WORD format .


Sometimes these problems are browser enabled. What browser are you using to surf the internet. If your are using Internet Explorer, I'll advice that you use Google chrome or Firefox.

Any of these browser could solve the problem.

When i turn on the laptop why does it takes so long to load up? and also when i click on my apllications it take 5 minutes or more to load up.....what hould i do?? it celeron

Hello. If your laptop is old it is slow because the solder in the circuit boards slowly fry over a period of a few years. The only fix is a new laptop. I personally but the cheapest one I can now days, under 400. and when it gets painfully slow I replace it.

Replacing Norton with anything else

Norton is a real pain, and can be a bigger pain to get rid of. First, go to and download CCleaner, and also download AVG, but save the AVG download to the desktop. After removing Norton you will be using AVG for your antivirus. Once you have the CCleaner installed, open the tools section on the left. This is an uninstaller, it works considerably better than the add/remove programs section of Windows. Remove anything that reads Norton. This is where it may get tricky, Norton has a couple of blocking programs built in that try to keep you from using another antivirus, or removing Norton. So, the uninstall may run the first try, or you may get a message to the effect of the updater is running. If you get this message, then you will need to open Norton, go into the settings, and turn off everything. Then try the uninstall again. Once you've uninstalled all Norton related programs, run the registry cleaner. Norton likes to leave a little blocker in the registry that prevents the install of other antiviruses. Noe that this is done, you're ready to install the AVG. NOTE at one point there will be a section that will install the AVG internet toolbar, uncheck this box, you don't need it, and once it's installed you can't remove it without removing and reinstalling AVG. Some finer points about AVG is very little maintenance,it updates automatically, will scan at a time preset by you, so as to not hinder your use at the time of the scan, it protects against spyware and adware along with the antivirus, and has real time internet security without using hardly any resources. I believe you will be happy with it. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.
