Is your pc runing slowly? The easyest solution would be to use the recovery cd to restore the computer to the original sate OR, remove useless files from the system with ccleaner www.ccleaner.com  after that is complete remove any useless extra programs from start -> control panel -> add or remove programs. 
ones that is done follow this page http://www.microsoft.com/AtWork/getstarted/speed.mspx

that should help. If you need help, I could do this for you over remote support? if intrested. Add a comment, note that reposting on my problem will reject my support.

Tip

Speed up vista !!1


  1. 1. Shut Down Remote Differential Compression
  2. Remote Differential Compression checks the changes of your files over a network to move them with as little bandwidth as possible instead of transferring an entire file that has previously been moved. With in constantly checking for file changes, this service will greatly slow system performance.
    To shut down this service:
  3. Control Panel
  • Change to Classic View
  • Choose Program Features
  • Select Turn Windows Features On And Off
  • Uncheck Remote Differential Compression


    1. 2. Shut Down Windows Search Indexing
    2. Windows Vista search indexing is constantly checking the files on your system to make their information available for quick searching. This is helpful, but can severely slow system performance.
      To shut down constant indexing:
    3. Select Start then Computer
    • Right Click your C: Drive
    • General Tab, Uncheck Index this drive for faster searching
    • On the next dialog box, Choose Include subfolders and files


    1. 3. Add at least a 2GB USB Flash drive to take advantage of Windows Ready Boost
    2. Ready Boost uses a USB flash drive to provide quick access memory for the operating system. The Ready Boost system can greatly improve system speed.
      To set it up:
    3. Plug in a Ready Boost Compatible USB Flash Drive
    • Select Start then Computer
    • Right Click Your USB Drive in My Computer
    • Choose the Ready Boost Tab
    • Click Use this device
    • Choose as much space as you can free up for RAM usage vs. Storage

    Runs slow on video downloads


    Hello Sir,

    downloading speed depends on internet connection not on PC specification.

    If your transfer is low then downloading will also be low.

    Take note that source from which you are downloading also must have reliable connection.


    cheers,

    My computer is very slow uploading how do i fix this problem please


    You may need to provide more details on this. But...
    1). Do you mean that your computer is slow BOOTING up?
    It may be that you need to Upgrade your RAM (memory) because as you add more programs applications to your computer over time, many of them load up some apps into memory on computer start-up. One way out is to type msconfig.exe (Start > Run > msconfig.exe), go to 'Start up' and uncheck the programs you can do without on start-up. But best way is to increase Memory.
    2). Do you mean UPLOADING files to the internet?
    This will depend on the speed of your Internet Link, and / or the speed of the server on the internet you are uploading to. Try uploading to some other destination and compare. If it is slow generally, then you may need to contact your Internet Service Provider and ask for Uplink bandwidth increase.
    Hope this helped.

    Yes, that is correct because some router like the one that you have needs a software update if you're having problem with it like a slow internet connection so it will be better to call Belkin tech support and let them walk you through with that firmware upgrade and that will make your connection fast..

    Hope that helps........

    Slow RT on loading new site or new page


    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.
