Hi Whose,

Me again :-)
Yes m8, there is something you can do.

Perform the steps given below to increase your system performance.

Uninstall all unwanted software:
To uninstall software
Click on Start
à Settings à Control Panel à Add/Remove Programs
Select the software (one at the time) from the list and click on the Add/Remove button and follow the online screen instructions.

Erase unnecessary files in the windows temp folder.
Double Click My Computer.
Double Click the drive where windows are installed. This is typically drive C.
Double Click the windows folder. This is typically C:\Windows.
Double Click the temp folder. This is typically C:\Windows\temp.
Press control A to select all files and folders.
Press the delete key.
If confirmation is asked to delete these files choose yes to all.


Defragment hard disk.
Close all applications.
Disable your screen saver.
Disable all the programs on the taskbar if possible.
Click Start.
Click Program.
Click Accessories.
Click System Tools.
Click Defrag.
Select the drive to defrag.

You should defrag every hard disk on your system.
This process can take quite some time.
Click Ok.
Enable your screen saver.


Remove Startup programs (if you know what you are doing)
Click Start
Select Run
Type msconfig in the text box
The "System Configuration Utility" window will open

A list of programs will be shown each having a checkbox to the left of the name.
Click on the checkbox to enable the program (so it runs when windows boots) and click a second time to Uncheck the box to disable the program (so it does not run when windows boots).


Set the size of the virtual memory (swap file) to a constant optimal size.
Right click My Computer
Click Properties
The System Properties window lists the amount of RAM in your PC
Click Performance
Click Virtual Memory
Click Let me specify my own virtual memory settings
Click the arrow next to the hard disk.
Here are some guidelines to choose the best location for your virtual memory file
a) Select the quickest hard disk.
b) If you have, two hard disks that are similar in performance select the hard disk that does not contain Windows system files (usually C:).
c) Make sure the drive has free space equal to at least twice the size of the recommended swap file size.
d) If the partition is on the same physical drive, select the partition in alphabetical order. For example, if you have one 20GB hard disk and you partition it into two 10GB partitions drive C & D) You should pick Drive C over Drive D if meets all the guidelines of a, b & c.

Set the Minimum/Maximum to: With large hard disks settings at least 128mb or 256mb swap file should be sufficient in almost every situation.
Note: The amount of RAM plus the size of the virtual memory file is the maximum amount of RAM you can use at once.
Click OK.
After setting the size of the virtual memory file windows will display the following message. You have chosen not to let windows manage virtual memory automatically.
Click Yes.
You must restart your computer before the new settings will take effect. Do you want to restart your computer now?

Click Yes

somebody is accessing your wireless network and getting free internet service from you unless you had setup a wep security! if you have an un-secure network then anybody with a wireless adapter can access your network and access your internet free and drag down the speed of your internet connection.
however, if you do have wep enabled and there is more than one computer connecting then this will slow your connection down as well. please remember that there are some games and gaming sites that are bandwidth hogs and will slow down other computers connection on the same network. also watching streaming videos and gaming at same time can slow down connections as well.

My connection is very slow,it is smart broaband


hi there, you don't need a router for smart broadband or other wireless broadband, cause all wireless broadband is already routed, if you used a router the connection will slow down due to NAT and built firewall of your router. Option: If you want to share your internet connection to other computer, used a HUB switch this would be better. thanks

Computer was working fine but slow uninstalled


possibly you uninstall your wireless driver try checking in device managerunder netwrok adapters for the driver if you don't see anything saying 802.11 wireless network adapter then you will have to install the drivers again for your wireless card on the system. ^_^ your drivers should be downloadable in the website of your OEM ^_^

Slow internet


90kbps is a little slow. You should be getting closer to 175-200kbps. You have to remember also that the ISP only states that the speeds are "up to 1.5mbps", so that could mean that you get less than that.

I would try and run a speed test. Go to http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest and run a speed test. If you're getting an optimal connection you should get results for download at 1300+ kbps. If it's much less than this I would restart your networking equipment one time and test again. If there is no change I would contact ATT and have them test the lines.

Hope this helps.
