When I boot up my pc, it is very, very slow to respond and finally tells me that there is no paging file or that the paging file is to small and also tells me how to correct this problem. My problem is i do know what a paging file is and what the size should.what it tells me is to go to control panel,click advance tabthen under performance click settings. On advance tab click change and then type an initial or maxium paging file size. I have not tried this since i do know what to type in. thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

There might be a hidden .exe file that always loads up its memory in the registry and runs everytime you are executing a function in Libraries. Go to the internet and download any antimalwarebyte andinstall it in the safe mode... If you do not know how to go into the safe mode, just switch off your computer and switch it back on, when its loading, keep on pressing F8 as soon as you press the power button on, this will give you a page that has an option of booting into safe mode. When you are in safe mode, install the antimalwarebyte that you downloaded and runa full scan. Afterwards, restart the machine in the normal interface and install Kaspersky Antivirus, update it and run a full scan. That should solve your problem.
Check in the task manager wich program is consuming the most of your CPU usage.
1. Press Ctrl+alt+del to open the task manager window.
2. Go to processes tab, and check.
3. Uninstall the program or programs that are using the most of your CPU.
If that does not work, check your system page file. You do that also on the task manager in the ''performance'' tab. It will show you two graphs, the CPU usage and the PF Usage (page file usage). If the page file is bigger than the amount of RAM you have installed, I would recommend you two options: 1)upgrade your RAM to your system needs or 2) uninstall any unused program or programs that you don't use regulary.
You can also try to restore your system to a previous configuration date were you know the system was working perfectly. In windows go to start>all programs>accesories>System tools>system restore.
As last resort, I would recommend, to backup all your data, documents, applications and others that you might need in the future and after that reinstall windows.
sounds like virus or spyware at first. get microsoft security essentials and scan you PC i bet it's riddled the PC should power off if you hold the power button in for 4-6 seconds, rather than use the switch at the wall
So many resion for system slowness,firsly depends on your system configuration,
booting depends upon your system RAM,how much RAM you user in system,min 1GB RAM require for smoth booting.second one is overload (tmp,recent,temparary internet files,cooks),delete all the files and restart the system.
check it issue will be fix,otherwise there was a problem with OS.
backup all the C drive data on anohter drive and reinstall OS in C drive.
Try clearing your browser history, cache, cookies, & temp. internet files. These all can be accessed using your internet tools option in the right hand menu of the browswer or by right mouse clicking on your browser icon. If these get too full they slow & eventually stop the explorer from responding. Hope this helps.
Hi Jean, sounds like you might need to add more memory to your PC. A fast Internet connection won't make a slow machine run any faster. If you right click on My Computer and choose properties, the box that comes up should tell you how much memory you currently have. If it's 512mb or less, that's a good indication that that is the problem.
This problem is probably because your system is infected with spyware,adware or some kind of malware.. Download an anti-spyware software like Spybot Serach & Destroy(Its free and awesome!)Scan your PC and remove all infections and it will be fine!
