Try re-install the operating system . If windows xp you wanted, try using the first/SP1. Most of all older machine with low spec,mostly slow . but not that slow if choose the right system operation. i suggest try install windows 2000 for better performance.
system slow down is caused for different reason. Your registry may have many broken links in it. You may need to de-frag your hard drive. It may be time to purchase a new computer. The software companies keep applying fixes to the operating system which causes all machine to slow down after a while. good luck.
no, you may just try any of the regisrty repair softwares , such as iolo system mechanic , advanced system care etc and run them to tune your pc automatically. system slow down is due to lot of reasons which may be quite difficult to solve manually.
Internet speed is dependent on the provider. If you have DSL and there are several people or computers using the Internet, it will be slow. Your HP610 has enough processing power and LAN speed to get online fast. If you have had this laptop two days, was it always slow? Or did it become slow? If it became slow, go to Malwarebytes.org and scan your laptop for malware. If you do not have a malware prevention program on the laptop, it will get trojans which will slow it down to a crawl. You can see the various products to prevent this here.
You can reinstall windows or use your restore dvd/cd that is something like using a hammer to open eggs. Seeing how this is summer you need to make sure your slow isn't hardware. Put your hand on
the back of the case where the power supply is and feel how warm the air is. It should be warm but not hot. If your computer runs normal then slow after it has run for a bit or has locked up then you may need to have you case and fans cleaned out. That can be done with compressed air but should be done with a vacuum. You need to be careful not to over speed the fans. If you have gas heat, pets, smoke or the computer is in the kitchen then you may need to do this once or twice a year for a desktop and more often for laptops.
Next thing is to make sure you have enough free space on C. Windows gets rather grumpy when it has low disk space on C. It doesn't help that everything installs to C by default. Run the disk cleanup utility under start-all programs-accessories-system tools and see if that helps. Also try deleting downloads or un-installing programs you no longer use.
If you don't think its running hot and you have space then we can try the software stuff.
I would look at what software you have running. The usual slow making suspects are things like monitoring or imaging programs. As an example you have a 3 in 1 printer and when you install it it loads a management suite that now runs all of the time. Or you have a digital camera and you install the drivers and it loads a management suite of software and image programs and they run all of the time. Or you use MSN and ot loads from start and runs all of the time or a p2p sharing program.
On most of these they will have an option for not starting or loading all the time. It is worth the time to try finding the guilty piece of software as you would probably reinstall it again and be right back at the same place.
To see whats running easiest place to look is under start-all programs-startup Anything placed there will start when windows starts. Anything in there can be dragged out (and back in if needed) and dropped in anotherpart of that menu. There are a few things that are quite safe to get rid of. Office toolbar or acrobat speed loader are two prime examples. The less in there, the better. Other programs such as MSN you will have to start and then look under options and see how it connects. Make sure it doesn't start when windows starts. There will be some programs that have no options to disable. On these you may need to un-install and then reinstall and carefully check if you can disable any options. If that won't work consider if you need/use the program at all. When you find the one piece of software that is doing this all of a sudden your pc will be running much faster. It will not be as fast as a fresh install but the fresh install doesn't have any software running either.
If none of this works and you are set on reinstalling windows. You should do a few things. One is to copy off all of your "stuff" ie documents, email and account setting, favorites. That way when you are running again you can just import them and have everything. If you save off your stuff then I would format the drive. This will cleanup any errors and give you a fresh start. Format it in NTFS when given the option.
This is a bit longer answer to your question but you should spend a bit of time checking as you can find yourself right back at slow pretty quick. If you know what to look for after your install then you can keep te slow from reoccurring for a log time.
Two things to try. First, uninstall SS9 completely> restart> disable any network access> turn off automatic security settings in vista> reinstall SS9> restart> enable vista security settings> reconnect network> run update. Firewall and AV should work now. If this does not work then try the same steps above but do a selective install and uncheck firewall. When install is complete and you are connected to the network then go into control panel and, using the system suite repair function install firewall. Good luck.
Bring up Internet Explorer, click on tools, click manage add ons, click enable/ disable add ons, look at enabled add ons, disable Data Vault. Restart your computer. This will fix your script errors with System Suite 9 on Internet Explorer.
What Operating System do you run? If it is Windows XP SP2 (Home Edition or professional), here are some things you can do to speed up your system. 1st you should remove all programs that are not required from the start menu. Start > Run > Msconfig > startup tab. Unselect all that are not necessary. Also Right click on my computer > properties > Advanced > Performance settings > Adjust for best performance. This should speed things up a little. I would recommend atleast 512 MB of memory to run Windows XP and its applications decently. You should consider an upgrade.
