Run the commands in your Accessories and also don't forget you need to Defrag and run an Anti-Virus software. The proper programs are under Start>All Programs>System Tools>Disk Cleanup and Defrag. When the housekeeping is done, if your computer is still running slow then the best thing you can do is upgrade the amount of RAM. That will make a noticeable difference.

Hi welcome to fixya. Hope u 'll be fine

your request is a bad or oversized cookie. (The same thing is true for request Error 400").
Simply solution is delete your "Cookies" Don't worry about erasing them;nothing bad will happen. You won't lose your internet browser "Bookmarks" or "Favorites"
As you're dumping your cookies, you should also erase all your "Temporary Internet Files" and "History". When u 'll d this your computer 'll be totally fresh in YouTube's.
After doing this restart your PC
whatever u r using browser to delete cookies, history and temporary internet files Go to Tools > Internet Options
See where is the option of "Delete Cookies and Clear History. Click on respective options to delete them

I hope this solutions will work and helpful 4 u. Best of luck

Hi,

There are couple of troubleshootig steps which needs to be performed inorder to help get a web page load faster.

Go to Tools/options/ and delete the history, cached pages, cookies, password etc. Might want to ignore favourites.

Also type temp in run command line and then delete the files from the folder. This helps to increase the processing speed as well as the browsing speed of the accer.

This works with IE 6/7/8 though.

Thanks

The sound is cutting in and out and the system runs much slower


I'm assuming you are running XP. Here are some things to try:
1. In your web browser (Internet explorer) click on the 'tools' menu
2. click on 'Internet Options'
3. Under browser history click on 'delete'
4. The first 2 options are to delete temporary files and delete cookies. Do those two things.
5. Reboot
6. 'Start' 'All programs' 'accessories' 'system tools' 'defrag' and run the defrag program.
7. reboot.
8. Virus scan all files on your computer.
9. Reboot.
I will be notified if you post any problems with the above. Your computer should run faster.

Slow starting Dell Inspiron 2650


The first thing I would look at is hard drive free space. Almost universally, critically slow systems have a hard drive with no free space. What most people don't seem to understand is that Windows requires a minimum of 10% of the hard drive to be free space to allow the operating system room for swap files and other temporary files needed to run the OS efficiently. This can be made worst by the fact that Windows only reports the size of a file on the hard drive, not the amount of space actually allotted to the file (This has to do with cluster size and the fact that only one file is written to any part of a cluster and in this case it is small files that waste a lot of space)

Things you can do.

1. Run disk cleanup, and get rid all temporary files.
2. If you use an email client like Outlook/Outlook express, delete unwanted emails, then empty the deleted items folder.
3. Open Internet Explorer, Tools, Internet Options, delete all cookies and temporaty internet files.
4. Go to add/remove programs in control panel, uninstall any programs or applications you do not use.
5. If you have a large amount of pictures or music files on the system, burn them to CDs or DVDs and free up that space.
6. Go to System Properties, Advanced Tab, performance section, settings button, select Adjust for Best Performance, Click Apply, Click Advanced TAB, Virtual Memory, Change Button, Select System Managed Size, Click Apply close then reboot.
7. Go to MY Computer, right click C:, Click Properties, Tools Tab, Defragment the Hard Drive
8. Adjust power management to Maximum perofrmance.
