My computer too slow always get the not responding reply.

Eliminate Viruses and Spyware
Step 1

Run your antivirus program. There may be something slowing your computer that you can remove. It is a good idea to run your antivirus program every week.
Step 2

Remove spyware. Run a good spyware tool at least twice a month.
Step 3

Use a pop-up blocker, if you have one. Check your antivirus program.

Dispose of the Extras

Step 1

Delete your document files for anything you no longer need. Saved pictures, audio and video files in particular can slow your computer.

Step 2

Remove unwanted programs from the Control Panel area. Old toolbars or games the kids downloaded off the Internet are a good place to start. Look for software you no longer use, such as the old printer you threw out last year.

Step 3

Clean out your email. Old messages are a constant drain on your computer's resources. Go through every folder, deleting everything you do not need. Leave no mail! Finish by emptying the Deleted Items folder.

Step 4

Turn off unnecessary programs. Check your taskbar for icons that show running programs. Disable anything you are not currently using.

Run Maintenance

Step 1

Run the Disk Cleanup tool located in your Control Panel. (Windows only. For other operating systems, please check the Resources section below.) This will remove temporary files, cookies and unnecessary components to speed up your computer.

Step 2

Defragment your computer. Defragging takes some time, but will speed your computer significantly. You can find the tool in your Control Panel. Run it monthly.

Step 3

Check for disk errors. Sometimes corrupted files slow down your computer. To find and fix these files, Go to My Computer and right-click on C drive. Choose Properties, then Tools.

I have an XP Dell PC with yahoo browser Every time I receive an email via YouTube the audio/video becomes intermittent for the duration of the attachment. Any suggestions?

Thats not that unusual. Basically its the system running close to the edge for cpu or ram. That can be a result of having too many processes running at the same time. The way XP works is that it shares the processor between hardware and software to simulate that it is doing many things at once. When you get near the limt thats when see it and that limit changes all the time.

Now a usable answer ;-] What you can do is limit the amount of programs running or open. You may find that turning off your antivirus or firewall when viewing youtube makes the differnce. Don't use a a messenger at the same time (they are real bandwidth hogs). Turn off unneeded 'managers' or quick launchers. For instance unless you are always using your photo or camera software, printing stuff, sending faxes and so on everything that starts up with windows takes away from your cpu and ram. Enough of this stuff and it can slow any powerhouse pc to a crawl. Had one client ready to go buy a new pc to replace his 3 month old one because it was slow from this sort of stuff. 10 minutes of turning off stuff by options and it was quick again. If you look at task manger (CTRL-ALT-DEL keys) and look at the cpu load. With a good XP setup it should idle at around 0-2% no more. Anything more than that and you have something hogging your resources. Running something like MSN will take that up to 30% at times. If you have a virus or its full of spyware this does the same thing but can get even worse. If you don;t have a antivirus (reccomend avast home the run a online scan. I use Housecall which is a free one from but there are others.

Add more system ram. With XP it starts working at 512mb, 1gb is pretty good but if you can get 2 or 3 then it really goes.

You could also try a differant browser such as Google Chrome. It is a bit faster than the others and doesn;t load as much junk. I also use Firefox and IE8 and they load and use a lot more and are visably slower.

The last thing that you may need to check is your connection. Even on a cable or dsl connection if there are problems it will be slower than it should be. Sometimes even if there is as little as 1% data errors that will slow your connection more than 50%. If your downloads are slow or you notice other errors this may be worth calling your isp to get them to check your connection. They should be able to do that from the office. Your cable modem will give then a report on the quality of the signal. I've had a cable modem and routers go out or start to fail that also would cause the slows.

Thats a few things to check but you will find that once you find the cause everything will work better.

Hi, im using a brand new acer asprire x1800 desktop..and i can HARDLY connect to the internet using SUN BROADBAND (lan connection already disabled). i have been using the broadband for a few months now....

There could be several possibilities for your internet connection to slow, or stop functioning. Here is a small list of things to check:

1) Run Spybot Search & destroy:
This is a program that will help you find, and eliminate malware, it's free from Here. It also helps speed your PC up by removing unwanted malware that can drain your system's resources.

2) Check your scheduled tasks to determine nothing is set to run during these " down " times.

3) Check to make sure any wireless connections are secured using WEP or other such wifi security. It's a little known fact that people will " pigy-back " on someone's wifi connection to use the internet and download. this can cause internet instability.

4) Call your Internet Service Provider. Your ISP can usually help you determine if the problem is with your computer or their connection.

5) Check your network settings. Your ISP can help you determine the best settings for your connection, as well you may check to see if the network device has an updated driver from the manufacturer.

6) If all else fails, you may wish to take your PC to a licensed technician, or replace the network device if you feel it is faulty.

In my experience most internet instability that happens on a regular basis during a set amount of time is due to malware, or scheduled downloads.

I have a windows vista.. my internet server is comcast. when i try to go on the internet it display internet error messsage webpage you entered must be incorrect. at the bottom of my screen the two...

try re booting your computer in safe mode and let it repair everything - if that doesnt work do a system restore --NOT -- it usually resets your browser- also look for a little button on the back of your router for the internt there should be a small hole there -- it is the reset button press and hold using a pencil for 15 seconds then unplug it and let it sit for 5 minutes -- then plug it back in to power and wait until the internet signal lights on the front of your router are set then try it again- also make sure you have your default browser set towhatever net you use i set mine to - real simple it takes you to explorer good luck - let me know if any of that works -- i would really advise you try resetting the router first though

Hi, i have a advent 7011 laptop that runs really slow. it has a 2.4Ghz processor, 256mb ram 30Gb HD (20.5gb free). i did a fresh XP Home install a few months back but it is still very slow - once an item...

Most slow portable systems (Once software has been eliminated as a cause) run slowly do to problems with cooling the processor. Possible solutions include:

1. Cleaning out the heatsink fins using canned compressed air by repeated blowing in the intake and exhaust vents.

2. Replacement of a failed or failing CPU cooling fan and/or heatsink (Normally I replace both, as some heatsinks use vacuum tubes and the tubes can lose their seal and become ineffective)

3. RARE: Replacement of the processor

4. Just in case you havent checked these SW/Firmware options. In the BIOS make sure the CPU is running in a NORMAL mode (Some have a compatible mode which slows the processor dramatically) Also ensure the power management settings in Windows are set to Maximum Performance/ALWAYS ON

Email cannot connect to your server. please give me current servers mine are onetel

You haven't given a description of your issue, but seem to have a some problem with email, and using onetel services. The following is from their site at This should allow you to make sure your settings are appropriate.

Please find below the basic Onetel e-mail settings:

If your e-mail address ends in
  • Incoming mail server (POP3): Port: 110
  • Outgoing mail server (SMTP): Port: 25
  • Username: the first part of your e-mail address (everything before the @ sign)
  • Password: the password you chose when you registered the e-mail address with Onetel

If your e-mail address ends in

  • Incoming mail server (POP3): Port: 110
  • Outgoing mail server (SMTP): Port: 25
  • Username: your full e-mail address
  • Password: the password you chose when you registered the e-mail address with Onetel
Additionally, contains various information depending on the email software you utilize on your equipment, and indicates specific instruction for setting up accounts on each.

I trust one of these solutions will address your needs, but if not, or if you need further assistance, please post additional detail in reply. Thanks for rating FixYa!

I installed System Mechanic Professional, fellowed all instructions, now my computer has slowed down so bad, the initializing period of the start-up is taking about 10 minutes, freeze up after about next...

Seems like the software program or something else might have messed up your registry settings.

When you turn on the computer, press F8 to get to a page with options for starting the Operating System. This only applies if you have Windows, preferably XP. Once there, select "Safe Mode with Networking". If you can get the computer to a point where you're able to use it, either run System Mechanic and have it undo the changes it made to your system, or run System Restore from Start -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore.

If you use System Restore, select a point before you did the changes, but recent enough to where you won't mess anything else up.

In the future, be sure to carefully check what each part of the registry being cleaned controls... Too much interference can be bad!
