Question about Compaq Evo D500 PC Desktop

1 Answer

PC has slowed down and sometimes freezes

I recently spent afew hours on the net (which is more than normal at one time). I discovered that my computer became very slow when I next logged on. I am generally very careful where I surf, and understand that many places are unsafe. I am reluctant to download any checker systems to check this as they too can be spyware. do you have any suggestions as to what I can do to check things and hopefully find what is slowing it so much. I did however download software (Nikon Camera) and removed what I could, and perhaps thought it could have been a problem. I also did a PC Restore. any suggestions?

Run your anti virus software. check your task manager by pressing ctrl-alt-del and selecting task manager. or right click windows system tray (the one with the time and other icons) then choose task manager. Go to processes tab, click memory to sort and show the program which uses the highest memory. check if the running file is a valid program application. If you are unsure, let me know.

Thanks

Slow download speed


Hi Mimi,
If you haven't checked to make sure your computer is free of malware, sometimes it can slow down your internet downloads. Here are a few programs I'd suggest you install and run:
  • ESET Online Scanner (scans from the web, will take a while)
  • SuperAntiSpyware (download and install)
  • Malwarebytes (download and install)

ESET will scan your computer this one time, and may take an hour or more. SAS and MWB will reside on your computer and can be run every couple weeks. Make sure you always run the updates before you scan with them.There are always a lot of things that can effect your Internet download speed.
Malware infection is just one of the common things that effects Internet Speed. Let us know a little more, like... did your connection recently slow down (used to be lot faster)? Is your computer slow overall? Or did this just start?

Connect an additional wired keyboard to your pc. And when the freeze happens check if the pc responds at all, using the wired keyboard. If its not responding , its an indication of a faulty PSU or motherboard.

Comtrend Are Junk?


Hi,
What do you mean your computer is freezing? If it's the operating system that is freezing then it's highly doubtful that it's the new router which is at fault. If the computer is slow and unresponsive then clear your internet cache, perform a defrag and also check the drive for any errors.

To clear the internet cache right click on internet explorer and select properties from the list. In the general tab where it says browsing history click on delete and follow the on-screen messages.

To perform a defrag click on the start menu then all programs, accessories, system tools and the disk defragmenter.

To check the disk for any errors click on computer, right click on local disk c and select properties, select the tools tab and check the volume for errors. Make sure you check both boxes to fix any errors found and then be patient as it cane take some time to complete.

If the problem is the internet which is freezing then perform a speed test on your internet connection and compare the speed to what your supposed to be getting. You can perform a speed test here >>>>>>

If the speed isn't what it's supposed to be then of course get your own router.
I do recommend Netgear myself as i will only have them routers for my own personal use.

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.

It will take many hours.similarly do it for all drives.
