Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
I have a Dell desktop Mdl 8200 that's gotten slower over the years. Is there a program you can recommend to improve the performance?
A slow Dell computer can be caused by many many reasons such as outdated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.

There are several areas that slow. you can address them one at a time.
1. internet... download and run ATF Cleaner here www.atribune.org/ccount/click.php?id=1 -
Run it everytime you exit your internet broswer, always run it twice and look for the "no files found" message. this free program belongs on everyone's desktop and almost eliminates the need for spyware programs.
2. Programs-- go to your programs list and UNINSTALL (NOT DELETE) any old programs your not using-- if there's no uninstall for the program, do it from the add/remove software area of the control panel.
3.remove all entries from the start-programs-startup folder.. This will not uninstall programs, just keep them from starting untill you actually need them (imagaine that)
4. Start- run- type in MSCONFIG, click the startup tab at the top. uncheck all boxes for stuff like yahoo messenger, real player, quicktime....make sure you dont touch the ones for your virus programs and video and sound cards. restart the computer, asnwer ok when it says you've changed things.
5. Get a can of canned air unplug the computer from power take the side or back off the case and blow all the cobwebs out. especially the fans and metal finned heatsincs under them.
there is more , but this should speed ya up a bit.
