Hi malachyfinne...
To clean your files and to clean any cookies,virus's,trojans,worms,etc you may have on your computer do the following.
Go to the following website and download,install and run the FREE Microsoft Safety Scanner.
It will remove the virus,trojan,worm,etc from your computer.
It may take quite a while to finish, it all depends on the size of your hard drive.
Once the Microsoft Safety Scanner is completed running, it should have removed the virus,trojan,worm,etc. from you computer, but if it didn't remove the virus,trojan,worm,etc from your computer then it will give you an option to connect (real time) with a Microsoft professional (FREE) and he will take over control of your computer (with you permission) and finish the removal process.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

My computer is getting really slow now. what can i do?

Actually sir there are a lot of reason why a computer becomes slow..First because of viruses, secondly your computer is very populated with files and applications and your hardware devices cannot accommodate it. But since you're connecting to the internet i know you have a good antivirus..perhaps i recommend you to try this 1. examine your files and application and choose the files you frequently used and not frequently used. 2. delete unwanted files and applications that you already didn't use so that it will free hard disk space and virtual memory of your computer. 3 go to recycle bin and empty it. freeing hard disk space and virtual memory can help your computer perform much faster...Reply to this post if your problem are not solved..Tnx for using fixya..

My laptop is running very slow any suggestions

This can be cause by many things, from a virus to malware to not enough free space. So, start with clear your browser cashe, and history. Next check your computer for viruses and malware. If you need an Anti Virus program, Avast is very good and free. Avast website. Malware, is stuff websites put in your computer to track your web usage. A good Anti Malware program is called Malwarebytes also free click on the above link to that site and download. Next is not enough free space, or not enough usable free space, Running a defrag on the Hard drive will help a great deal with slow performance. Try this program called MyDefrag, also free and a very good program better than the windows virsion due to the fact it defrags in a wraparound state. If you want to conserve space when you type text you use wraparound as apposed to line by line. Click here for MyDefrag download. Next will be to clean the registry, if you install a lot of programs and then remove them, you may need to clean up the files left behind. Ashampoo offers some programs you can use for trial to clean your registry. Take these steps to speeding up your computer . Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

Welcome to FixYa!

See if that helps you ?

More over have you tried installing a Anti-virus.Cause sometimes Virus make the computer slow.
, as a tip De-fragment your hard drives time to time.if virus has hit your computer try installing a fresh copy of windows and then installing Anti-virus .let me remind you when you install a copy of windows do not attempt to open any drive cause there are auto-run viruses. so you first clean your computer then go to other drives clean and safe.

Do comment if it helped you in ANY MANNER !

My computer has a lot of virus n run slow n need 2 be fix

To start with you need to get Lavasoft Adaware installed on your computer. It is free to download and install.

When you have it installed, run it about 3 times rebooting your computer after each run. This should take care of most of your virus problems. After that I would suggest getting a free antivirus software. I use AVG anti-virus. Works very well.

I have a dell dem. 2400 and it runs extremely slow how do i speed it up?

There are many causes for a slodown but you can do 2 things right away.

1. Clean your temp files and Registry.
2. Check for Viruses and clean them

Here's how you start.

1. Hold down the Windows Logo key at bottom left of key board and press the R key,
a 'Run Window will appear. In that window type this exactly

%temp% and then press the Enter key

Now you'll see a Temp Files window. Take your time and delete every single file Winwos will allow (tip, any files you see with the little left coner bent over cannot be deleted) It's perfectly fine to leave those files as Windows needs them to support your computer.

2. Go online and Download a simple and totally free proram called Cleaner. Install and use it's first 2 features and get help if you're even a little conceerned.

3. Dowload another great program (free) called "Malewarebytes" and use their easily understood Quick Scan feature. Get rid of the viruses using the easy instructions.

After all that, if your computer runs slow, you need a new hard drive, as all hard drives are really only expected to make it at full capacity for 3 to 5 years.

That's all your problems sound like to me.

Please do me a great kindness, as I have tried to do you one.. Do not leave 2 thumbs up. It decreases my rating for trying to help you for free while you have to wait for concrete resaults, but can belittle me for not getting you a quick fix. I'd rather you posted nothing.

Kind Regards,

My PC Toshiba laptop is running very slow. It's

You need to give more details...
Following are the common methods to increase computer running speed:
- Delete Windows temp files
- Run disk cleanup and defragmenter, this can help you clean junk files, and speed up opening programs and files. If possible, use a third-party programs rather than the built-in system tools, they take really a long time...
- Clean WIndows registry and run defragmenter. This can reduce registry errors and reduce its size, so as to speed up application response. Here is a free registry defrag tool which I feel quite easy to use.

Hi masters: My computer go realy slow,when you stop using it for 10 min.I have installed a CA security anti virus,etc ,but still reporting one virus that the CA anti,hasent been able to clean so...

You need to find the path to where the virus file is located & delete it you're self. You're antivirus software should show you where it is located. Once you delete the virus file, shut down the PC. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Open you're case & remove you're memory. Wait about 15 seconds & reseat you're memory. (make sure you're memory is seated correctly).
Removing the memory clears the memory from memory virus).
Close you're case & reconnect the power cord. Boot the PC. Once windows has finished loading run windows diskClean, than run windows defrag. (may take some time). After defrag has finished restart you're PC. Run another virus scan. If you're virus software still finds a virus or you're system & its still running slow the virus may have damaged windows files or windows registry. A reinstall of windows may be needed. If you have system restore turned on than the virus is most likely being stored in one or more restore points.
Remove infected files that you cannot clean in the System Restore data archive. To completely and immediately remove any infected file or files in the data store, turn off and then turn on System Restore. To do so, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. Click Performance and Maintenance, and then double-click System.
3. Click the System Restore tab, and then click to select the Turn off System Restore for all drives check box.
4. Click OK, and then click Yes to initiate the restore point deletion.
To turn on System Restore again after the restore point deletion has completed, repeat these steps, but click to clear the Turn off System Restore for all drives check box.

Good Luck!
