My Dell desktop computer is so very slow. why is that?


Systems collect junk (technical term) over time. You should try to do the following things to clean up.

  1. remove unnecessary files
  • clean your trash can
  • remove any programs that you don't use
  • clean your Internet files (can be done with browser or a program like ccleaner.
2. defragment the system
  • You can use the built-in defragment program located under start -> accessories -> system -> defragment
  • You can use a freeware program such as mydefrag or ccleaner (look on Google)
3. clean your registry
  • Programs such as ccleaner have an option to clean the registry. Using this several times in a row will help.
If that does not get enough speed, you might want to look at adding memory. You can go to a number of different sites which will tell you what memory you can add. Crucial (which advertises here), newegg.com and others can read your machine and give you the exact information you need. You can compare prices at different vendors after the scan.

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 have a dell computer and its running slow


Disk Clean up is a small percentage of what you need to do. As you go by installing and uninstalling programs a lot of debris of programs keeps the Windows Registry bloating more and more. And each time you give a command it has to read the registry which takes time. And you feel the computer is slowing down.
Solution:-
Go to www.ccleaner.com and download CCleaner free and install it. Run it and clean up the registry and all others extra baggage that slows the computer down. And wach your PC/laptop gallop after that.

Hi, computer freezes after a few minutes when running more than one window at a time. Running XP PRO. Have done defrag, disc scan and repair.


The cause of the freezing, or locking up, of your computer, is due tosome either corrupted or missing files. And more specifically, missing orcorrupted registry files.

Slow speed


One way to make it run faster is to defrag the HDD. Go to Start->Control Panel->Admin Tools->Computer Management. here select Disk Defragmentor and then select your C: drive. Defrag it and then defrag the others too. You would find a marked difference in performance. Second way is to use a Windows Registry Cleaner. What happens is that with you installing and uninstalling programs, a lot of file bebris is left in the Windows registry. And the system has to read the registry very often, thus wasting a lot of time on things that are not there. If you search Google for Free Registry Cleaners, you will find many. Use it and trim the registry and you will find a tremendous difference in speed. My laptop used to take 40 minutes to boot at times till I cleaned the registry. Now it gallops like new.

Takes 10mins to boot up then every thing works fine


Go to your event viewer and look at the log.
It's possible you have a corrupted dll or driver.

If you have a lot of startup programs, that may cause it. You can run a program called hijack this to see what's foreign in your startup such as spyware. Hope this puts you in the right direction.
