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.

My computer has started taking a long time to change screens and find stuff. It seems that I sit and wait on everything I try to pull up. Is there something I can do to solve this so I don't have to sit...


A catch all answer to this question would be reinstalling your operating system.

1. Uninstall unused programs and delete files YOU CREATED that you do not need. Also delete all your temporary internet files. You want to free up hard **** space. Less files for your computer to go through to find what it needs speeds up all aspects of your computer.

2. Run MSCONFIG and click on the startup tab. Uncheck anything that is NOT needed to boot or for your computer to function properly. You can run MSCONFIG through "run" or in Vista by doing a search for it and clicking on it.

3. http://www.malwarebytes.org/
Run this program to check for hard to detect spyware/virus. Spyware always slows a computer down big time. this program is free and has worked better than any other "pay" program I have ever used. I repair computers for a living and this is my new tool to automate some repairs.

4. Defrag your hard drive. This reorders files on your hard drive to make them easier for the computer to find them.

After doing the suggestions of 1-4, you will notice a considerable speed increase from your computer. If you want even more, reinstall your Operating System, which is something I suggest doing about once a year.

Slow Dell computer 4600


Normally computers get slow for the following reasons.
1) Infected with malware/viruses. Run free programs available from (CNET) www.download.com. These include MalwareBytes, SPybot Search and Destroy, Adaware.
2) Computer hard drive is full or seriously fragmented. Try removing unneeded programs (especially pictures) and then attempt a defragmentation.
3) Hard disk failing or getting old. Sometimes this is due to environment. Smoky, dirty or dusty environments will eventually contribute to build up of heat inside the computer and excessive heat kills computers. Also hard drives are mechanical and they do wear out over time. Laptop drives take more abuse because they are moved around more than desktops. If they start getting noisy then it is time to prepare to replace it. If you haven't done it yet GET YOUR IMPORTANT DATA OFF NOW!!!!
4) Overclocked or over heated processors. Dust buildup in the cooling fans and heat sinks can cause the temperature to rise and when processors get heated up they slow down and evenyually crash.
5) Running out of memory. As our computers get older we keep adding programs and eventually (if we dont upgrade the memory) the computer runs out of memory.
So if I were in your shoes I would do the following:
1) run some of the malware removal programs I suggested (if your hard drive has the available space for them) and also run your anti-virus program.
2) Remove unneeded files from the hard drive and then run the disk defragmentation tool. I once had a customer that had jammed her hard drive full of pictures and when it crashed it had no room to rebuild itself.
3) if all that does not improve the speed then see about getting an upgrade for the memory.

Slow system, hard disk problem?


First off, get any important data off NOW. If it took 48 hours for disk check to run AND it found bad clusters your hard drive is on it's way out. Consider yourself lucky that you are getting an early warning sign. Normally computers get slow for the following reasons.
1) Infected with malware/viruses. Run free programs available from (CNET) www.download.com. These include MalwareBytes, SPybot Search and Destroy, Adaware.
2) Computer hard drive is full or seriously fragmented. Try removing unneeded programs (especially pictures) and then attempt a defragmentation.

5) Running out of memory. As our computers get older we keep adding programs and eventually (if we dont upgrade the memory) the computer runs out of memory.
So if I were in your shoes I would do the following:
1) make sure you have any important files copied off of that hard drive. You never know when it may crash so get them off now.
2) run some of the malware removal programs I suggested (if your hard drive has the available space for them) and also run your anti-virus program.
3) Remove unneeded files from the hard drive and then run the disk defragmentation tool. I once had a customer that had jammed her hard drive full of pictures and when it crashed it had no room to rebuild itself.

Slow internet on 1 computer


download atf cleaner to the desktop of the slow computer. open it , check the box that says "select all" then click on "clean selected". the first time you run this, it may take a few minutes. this program empties all the junk internet explorer saves, which reduces bandwidth issues. I run mine everytime i get off the internet. after the first run, it runs much quicker, and always run it twice or until you get the message "no files were removed" if you can't get to this point, you should run your virus scanner in safe mode. if your getting fast internet on the other three computers , it's not your provider, it's something between your router and your monitor, usually trash your web browser is trying to update while you are trying to surf. www.atribune.org/ccount/click.php?id=1

run this program , post again here if you need further assistance..

yes, that's why with new computers, it comes with high ram.

In any case, try to clean out your C: do a disk clean up.
remove useless software. Don't archive for faster search (slow computer down)
