Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

1 Answer

Windows operates very slowly

Even thought I ran Disc Cleanup and then Defrag, the system operates better but still very slowly. For instance, when I launch IE, it takes a minute or so to let me see the browser. What to do?

It could be too many startup apps in Msconfig, not enough memory, need to run Volume Check, need to run defrag, bad spots on hard drive, spyware.

Simply download a PCFresher and defrag your OS by using its Deframenter feature with one click. Its a very reliable program am using it since 2011.

Boot up to slow


Hi ladurisjames...

Your computer sounds like it is loaded with "junk"
Lets start by doing a disc cleaning, then a defrag of the hard drive, and then get rid of unwanted pictures, programs, etc.that you never use anymore from your computer.
Last resort will be a System Restore.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------1...Disc cleaning...Click on Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools> Disc Cleanup
2. Defrag the Hard Drive...Click on Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disc Defragmenter.
3...Delete any unused programs,files,pictures...etc.
4. Final resort: System Restore...this will restore your computer to a time when it was operating good, you have to pick the date when it was running good....Click Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore
After you have completed the above your computer should run faster.
Please take time to rate me

Hello there,

Initially, you can do a disk cleanup and disk defragmentation. Go click on Windows Start >> All Programs >> Accessories then System Tools. Disk cleanup will delete all uneccessary files in your computer. Disk defragmenter rearranges files stored on the computer making it load easily.

My computer can't defrag, it just runs for hours on end.


I haven't used the default defrag prog in windows for a long time but it was always known to take forever if regular defrags had not been performed.

This will be the case for any defrag prog. however there are faster ones out there. Try the following free one and defrag weekly.

Computer takes longer to boot up, plus is running very slow


1. To increase PC boot speed:
There must be too many programs automatically start when you boot your PC. To manage them, click Run, type in "msconfig", select "Boot", then you can disable unnecessary programs from that list.

2. To increase PC running speed:
* Adding RAM is the most effective method, but if the RAM is already at the maximum, then do the following.
* Run disk cleanup and defragmenter. But to be honest, the built-in Disk Cleanup and Disk Defragmenter run quite slow and they will take you quite a long time, so I never use them. Third-party programs are better.
* Run registry optimizer software and defrag. No Windows built-in tools to do this. Search on google or refer to this free registry cleaner review.

I use photoshop elements 7 on windows vista and recently got an error message saying it has stopped working... any suggestions?


Photoshop did the same for me. What I did was a system cleanup. Ran disk defrag after that and it worked fine. Having too much clutter effected my experience. Once done it ran fine.
