There is possibly a heavy app running in the background, for example virus and malware scans, if you are running vista then you will have to expect this

My System configuration is i3 with 4GB ram. and there is only 3 softwares(ms-office,adobe reader,one medicines related software). My system became slow.


Try increasing the virtual memory setting in the windows operating system. Also see if there is a defragmentation tool on the windows operating system. I am assuming it is a windows operating system.
You may have a virus that might slow down or spyware slowing down p,c May need to run an anti spyware or anti virus program to check for these.

Why does the streaming video on my laptop freeze while playing (sound keeps going) and when i move the mouse over it it will catch up and keep playing for a second or two?


Hello,
In your case it would seem that you need to do 1 or both of the following;
!. Add more memory (More memory is always a good thing).
2. Use a Hard drive defragmenter and defrag the hard disk as the more it gets fragmented the worse the video lagging will get, and the more programs will slow down.

Good Luck

I have a Lenovo 300 N200 (0769) Recently it has become very slow even though everything seems fine. I tried running defragmentation but on a check it said defrag not needed as there's a lot of empty...


The slow reason may be one or more problems acting together. The problem nowadays is that it is very difficult and time consuming to monitor and take care of your Lenovo PC. Even experienced users find it hard to perform such tasks on regular basis because you might need to prepare a huge amount of time and energy to deal with each issue separately.

If you want to fix the problems more efficiently, try the Lenovo speed up program, available here.

Has become extremely SLOW? I've run Norton 360 tune-up with no improvement. What's the deal?


I personally like and use Avast Free AntiVirus. A virus could be slowing you down greatly.

I also like Ccleaner (.com for the website) which cleans out old cookies, files and junk that will slow your computer down.

I also would recommend you do a defragmentation and disk cleanup.

I like to do all the things above to keep my E1505 running good.

Compress old files too large


It doesn't actually delete anything when you select Compress Old Files. It actually searches your hard drive and anything that hasn't been used for so many days (forgot how many). This is ok if you need more hard drive space but if you have enough space, you should not use this tool. It will severly slow down your computer while accessing those files. For information on how to disable this, go :

If your laptop is slow it probably needs some maintenance like:

Removing Cookies.Temp files. TIF's with CCleaner
Installing ScrubXp to automatically remove such files.
Running Defragmenter in Safe Mode

Also, download and install WinPatrol,Ad-ware 2008 and SpyBlaster.
AVG Anti-virus is great protection against viruses and Trojans
Programs mentioned are free. Defragmenter is part of OS.
MyComputer,C:drive,Tools. defragmenter.

Pc running slow


Hey defraging your HD will not cause you to lose any programs also you may need to do a fresh install. Also have you checked for viruses or mass sypware?
