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.

My computer is unresponsive or very slow nearly all the time now


When was the last time you ran disk clean up, scanned your pc for spyware and virus and finally defragmented the disks. Doing all three of these could have a big impact on the speed of it. Run all three in the order above.

My system is running slow


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.

These are symptoms of a virus or a spyware program, have you run a full system scan for any of this type of malicious software (virus's and spyware) Norton Internet security is a good choice.

Has become extremely SLOW? I've run Norton 360 tune-up with no improvement. What's the deal?


I personally like and use Avast Free AntiVirus. A virus could be slowing you down greatly.

I also like Ccleaner (.com for the website) which cleans out old cookies, files and junk that will slow your computer down.

I also would recommend you do a defragmentation and disk cleanup.

I like to do all the things above to keep my E1505 running good.

Lenovo T61 running slow - 3 years old..


There are so many reasons can cause your Lenovo T61 computer running slow than it used to, it is hard to identify just what might be dragging down your Lenovo's performance, let alone implement the necessary technical adjustments to fix it.

So if you want to address the issues more easily, I'll recommend you try a Lenovo speed up software, available here: http://www.speeduplenovo.com/

Over 10+ small utilities packed into one to help detect & fix all slowdowns in 1 click.

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!

My computer gateway running vista is extremely slow


try a defragment, try a disk cleanup, Both available from right click the drive and select properties, when the window opens look for disk cleanup, when you have done that select that again, this time go to Tools tab, run disk defragmenter.
Also Start>>Run>> type in MSCONFIG, go to startup tab, and disable all those programs reboot and see if any better, if it is then re-enable them one by one, rebooting in between and see which one cause you problems, if any... Check for Viruses.
Go to housecall.trendmicro.com/ - United States -
and install whatever the site wants activeX and let the program tun and see if there are any virus, on the PC, and if there is it WILL remove them for you.
try all that if it still doesn't help get back to me.

System is running extremely slow, when I tried to do a factory restore I get an error code 0xf00000005. I ran hardware diagnostics on the hard drive memory cpu and mobo, tests run extremely slow. I tried...


After using Darik's boot and nuke (DBAN) your hard drive will be wiped clean with little chance of recovery. This also depends on how many passes you used for the disk wipe. More passes = less chance of recovery.

Restore from backup
You can restore backups previously created (as stated in the Create backup
section) from hard disk, CD or DVD.
1 Boot to Windows XP.
2 Press <Alt> + <F10> to open the Acer eRecovery Management utility.
3 Enter the password to proceed. The default password is six zeros.
4 In the Acer eRecovery Management window, select Recovery actions and
click Next.
5 Select the desired restore action and follow the onscreen instructions to
complete the restore process.
