Dell dimension 4600 desk top: has BECOME slow even with fast dsl installed several yrs. ago. will cleaning help? best deal on more memory?


Here's some things you can do:
Run your disk check and defrag.
Run MSCONFIG and uncheck programs that you really don't need at startup.
Run a good malware checking program.
Use a good registry cleaning and optimizing program. I use Registry Mechanic by PC Tools
var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_da4ab955fac74776b5bfe3dbd5a0fc6f(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); } var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_3a06744bd5a440418e70e33ed49241a8(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); }

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.

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.

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.

Slow performance


I am assuming that you have an antivirus program running, if not than get one. Than you should update it and than scan in safe mode ( that catches viruses before they load and hide from you) also purchase "Webroot Spy Sweeper" run it and follow instructions, and your computer should be running fasater, also if you upgrade your RAM, than that well boost preformance, upgrade your hard drive may also solve the problem. Chances that your processor is fried are slim, although vacuming out the fan also helps to cool the processor. If you wanted to, you could even add another fan.
