Many computers have way too many things running in the background. If you see more than three or four little icons down just to the left of the clock, (this area is called the System Tray), some of these programs could be causing your problems.
Use Windows Explorer and navigate to:

C:\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
Adjust the size of your Windows Explorer so you can see some of your desktop and drag everything in the Startup folder out on the desktop, and then restart your computer. If this minimizes, or eliminates your problem, put each item back in the Startup folder, one-at-a-time, and restart and re-test your computer until you locate the offending program.

Be sure also that your computer is not virus or spyware infected

My computer is slow


Win 7 needs at least 3 gb of memory. Run a chkdsk. Then get a free disk defragger from cnet site. Do a defrag of disk and see if your machine runs faster. Another problem can be a virus slowing your computer.

My laptop is running slow? when im in the internet my computer runs slow


Available RAM is very important for speeding up your laptop while surfing. Check your available RAM by:

  1. Starting the Task Manager (Right click on taskbar and select it)
  2. Select the Performance Tab
  3. Compare the Physical Memory vs Commit Charge numbers.

For example, my fast computer has 3600 megs of total physical memory compared to a commit charge of 1200 megs. Meanwhile, my older, slow computer has only 650 megs of total physical memory with a commit charge of 1400 megs. This means the slow computer is always making 'pretend' memory from hard drive space, and that is why it is so slow. This is most likely the case with your computer as well.

I hope that helps.

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,

How do i know what programs i can take out of this laptop? it is running so slow.


Hi,

You can see what programs run in your system by pressing ctrl+alt+del keys together. then click task manager which will have the list of all the applications running. If you find a particular application making your computer work slow, then click on that application in the list and then click end task which will close that application.

One solution for your computer running slow could be reformatting your operating system. Your system might have been affected by virus which could be the reason for your system's bad performance.


Hope it helped!
