Question about Computers & Internet

Computer is very slow to boot up

It takes me anywhere from about 7 to 10 minutes to boot up my computer.
I am connected to the internet through Wildblue.
Is there someway I can only open up certain programs when I first start my computer? Will that make it boot up faster?

My computer is not connecting to Dlink, it shows a red x under properties can anyone in the household change the password?


Are any other devices in the house connecting to the router? If so the problem is with your computer. Otherwise, there is something wrong with the router.

The first pass fix for routers is to power cycle them. Unplug the power for about 30 seconds, then plug it back in. It will take anywhere from 30 seconds to several minutes to boot back up and reconnect to the internet.

If this doesn't fix the problem, then I would need more information on the problem to diagnose.

Thanks,
John Vickers

Hi,

Any other unusual things happening besides it's working too slow ?

Might want to check for viruses, they usually eat up computer resources.

Thanks

It is taking 15 to 20 minutes just to pull up internet explorer, computer is very slow. I have deleted a lot of unused files and ran a Norton 360 scan and it is still very slow. The Model is ELI300G


Start in safe mode with networking (hit F8 repeatedly after the boot splash screen), Open Internet Explorer, go to TrendMicro.com and run their free virus scan.

My modem is very slow


Hello,

Run a virus scan on your computer. If your virus and spyware protection are up-to-date, the scan will detect any offenders and remove them from your computer.
Unplug your modem and wait a minute. Many times resetting a modem will fix the slow Internet connection.
Perform a system restore on your computer. This allows you to undo any harmful changes that you have made to your computer that could be causing the slower Internet.
Free up space on your hard drive. Routinely removing temporary Internet files and programs that you no longer use will help keep your computer running efficiently.Test your connection. Many Internet providers will allow you to use their site to check to make sure that there is not a problem with your connection.

Take care.

It takes about five minutes for the internet to connect after I turn on the computer. After that, it is fine


This is the normal time taken for the computer to boot and the modem to access the internet

First boot the modem then the computer

By the time the computer boots the modem will be ready to connect
