Computer runs slow . I have a dell 2350 pentium. 256mb ram running windows xp. C drive has 11.7 gb used and 16.8 free.the machine doesnt respond as quickly as it once did

Computers slow down, even after a short time, there is a little guide that will help to speed up, and keep it safe and secure
I would also advise a little more memory, but i have ran a few pc's with 256mb ram and they where still usable.
Try ebay for older types of memory

the PC should power off if you hold the power button in for 4-6 seconds, rather than use the switch at the wall

Windows XP pc running very slowly


To make your system run faster there are few things you can try.
1. clean out as much things from starting during system startup.
2. check your user profile, reduce your profile as much as possible. create a folder on the root of the C-drive and move as much stuffs off your desktop and mydocument.
3. Make sure you have enough disk space.
4. you can try to increase the virtural memory a little more.
5. last thing is get more memory.

Computer v slow. don't know which program to trust to clean up free, and easy to use. scan for issues, then use registry cleaner (the first two options). if pc is still slow, you may have some issues that need to be dealt with by someone moore knowledgable about the registry entries. (when using the cleaner, you need not backup anything as they are missing or broken files and fragments that are clogging the registry and can be safely removed).
for further help, you may need to run a program such as hijack this. save the logfile to the desktop, and copy paste it into a forum where someone can read and advise you on what, if any, actions to take.
one such group i am a member of is

some else here may also be able advise you, but i am not sure of that.

HP PC bogged down despite cleaning cache and removing old programs

Try adaware or spybot. Your PC could also be overheating. Open the case and blow out any dust. I also would check your add/remove programs and delete an software you don't use. Hit ctrl alt del when your PC slows down and look at the running processes for what might be slowing your system down.
