    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!

Startup very slow on my new dell 660 desktop


If it is updating it will take a while to load updates. Once all the updates are installed it should Boot and shut down faster. Just let it finish the updates. do not disturb until finished.

How can i speed up a slow dell optiplex gx620


Hi, there. A slow Dell computer can be caused by many many reasons such as outdated hardware, overload start up programs, corrupt registry issues, too many junks, virus attack, poor security software taking too much system resources, remnants of uninstalled applications etc. The fact is, you should keep some system maintenance job regularly. If you don't want to do the job manually, try the Dell speed up solution available here: http://www.speedupslowdell.com/

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.!
