E-machine Hello, My computer is running extremely slow. This is what I have done so far, I've run scans, I cleaned up my hard disk, I have ran a disk defragmentation, I am only using half my memory( 52%) and I have deleted the cookies. Nothing seems to work. Oh I also deleted unnecessary files.

Laptop computer runs slow


Mostly laptop runs slow issue occurs due to broken Windows registry entries. Fixing registry will help you to boost up your laptop. You need to download and install a Registry Cleaner program to fix corrupt or broken registry entries. To download a reliable registry cleaner, go to famous website download.cnet and search there Reginout. Which I personally use and recommend the friends. After downloading run all of its tools one by one except Internet Optimizer, to clean all the junks and registry errors from your computer.

Extremely slow running


Slow computer If you have a virus program installed, it is most likely is running a scan on your hard disk. It can slow down your computer especially if you have a large hard drive. After scanning is completed then the computer will be faster.
To make your computer (hard disk) lean and mean, uninstall any programs you do not use.
Also you need to maintain your hard disk by running Disk Cleanup this will remove old temp files and old compressed files etc.
This will reduce the number of files the virus scanner has to scan. Plus running Defrag. this makes your files contiguous so the system can access files off the hard drive quicker because it does not work as hard.. Disk Cleanup and Defrag should be carried out at least once a month.
If you have 512Mb of RAM installed then installing more RAM will speed up your computer. After installing your graphics card, you may need to disable the built-in graphics card in the BIOS for the new graphics card to work properly.

If your computer has less than 1Gb RAM then install more RAM will help.

My computers are extremely slow


HARD DISK MAINTENANCE TO KEEP COMPUTER RUNNING EFFICIENTLY.
Hard disk maintenance should be carried once a month to make your computer run efficiently. This removes redundant and temporary files, recovers disk space and speed up hard disk access. Disk Cleanup should be done first - Click My Computer - then right click on the C drive then click Properties, then click Disk Cleanup - let it examine the C drive then it will calculate the amount of disk space it will recover, tick all the boxes to recover the maximum disk space and then Click OK and then Yes to perform these actions. If you have a D drive then repeat these steps on this drive too. Next the C drive needs to be Defrag. This process converts fragmented files into continuous files and this speeds up disk access and makes the hard disk not work as hard. Click on Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Disk Defragmenter - click to highlight the C drive and click Analyse - then click Defragment. When this is completed repeat these steps for the D Drive if you have a D drive. Disk Cleanup and Defrag can take a long time to complete, especially if these tasks have not been for a long time.

My HP Pavilion a1120n is running very slow I re formated it a few time over the years. Recently I added more ram and ran great till i clean it with air may , then ran very slow, so I remove some ram then...


Did you replace the hard drive? It is quite possible there is an issue with the drive at that age. YOu could try an application called "SpeedFan" or "HD Tune" and run a S.M.A.R.T test on it. This will help you determine the drive status. You can run a benchmark with "Hd Tune" and determine the speed of the drive. If you want to post your results, I will certainly help out further.

I have a dell dimension 2400 which is getting slower and slower and slower. Have done disk clean up, defragged, etc. Plenty space unused on hard disk. Anti virus etc all up to date. Do you have any ideas?


I run into this type of complaint very often, and it's almost always caused by viruses or spyware. I would recommend that you download two free clean-up tools that are very widely used and trused.

MalwareBytes AntiMalware (MBAM)
http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php (download free version)

Super AntiSpyware Free Edition
http://superantispyware.com/ (download free edition)

Install both programs using their default settings, run their respective updates from inside the program, and then run the full scans on both. You can run both scans at the same time, they'll both take a long time to run. Expect the scans to take an hour or more depending on how slow your computer is.

When the scans are finished, you'll get a list of "infected items". Follow the instructions for cleaning and deleting them, then reboot your computer. Once it comes back up, you may want to run both scans again just for good measure. If it comes up clean the second time, you should be all better for a while.

Good luck!

First of all get a good Antivirus software and scan your PC thoroughly after UPDATING it. Updating the Virus software is extremely important.
Secondly after doing the above step install a Registry cleaning software. I recommend Uniblue Registry booster or Regcure. Virus and unclean registry are number 1 reasons to PC slow down.
Check your hard disk if it is near to full. Use the Windows built in disk cleaning software to clean unnecessary files. After that De-fragmenting the disk will also help a lot. To de-fragment a disk Go to accessories in the start menu and then go to system tools. Find disk de-fragmentation and run it the PC performance will dramatically enhance but Virus and registry cleaning is recommended to be done first.

Good luck!

System run's real slow, how do i run and update/troubleshooter check


1st you should clean up the junk files on your hard drive. This can be done with the windows disk cleanup utility.(accessories->system tools folder in start menu)
2. Defragment the hard drive. (same place)
3. Go to http://www.ccleaner.com/ or some other registry cleaner site. Download the program and run it.
4. Run a virus scan.

If your computer is still slow you may consider getting some pc tuneup software that will do the three steps above and a few more things.
