    Have you done a file cleanup lately? How about defragmenting your hard drive?



    How many programs are you loading at startup? (Look at Start>All Programs>Startup folder)



    Have you run a full system scan for viruses, spyware, and malware?

This could have a million possible soultions. Some general possibilities are a recent software or driver update, a recently installed program, a recenly installed piece of hardware, or some malicious software.

You could also have a drive error. If you are using windows, run the checkdisk utility.

Start>My Computer
Right click on C: drive and choose Properties
Tool Tab>Check Now
Enable both options and click Start
Answer Yes or Ok for any following dialog boxes
Reboot and let the utility run - this can take several hours
The computer will eventually return to Windows

You should do this for every hard drive, but only C: drive will require a reboot.

If it is still running slow, reply to this post and I'll offer some free software suggestions to clean up your computer, but please indicate your operating system, anti-virus, anti-spyware, and firewall software.

Hope this helps - Good luck!

Slow start up to desktop and slow from desktop to firefox. Any reccomendations? I have a dell Inspiron 1564 laptop with very few additional programs added. It is about 18 months old.


This problem usually is because you never cleaned your Registry and it is full of garbage and you might wanna open msconfig to reduce the number of start-up programs. @sigaieu

Slow slow slow slow


Try disabling apps in start up by typing msconfig in start menu. Or try booting in safe mode(press f8 key when rebooting) and try doing a virus/malware scan or disable start up apps in safe mode also.!
