My windows vista is lagging VERY VERY MUCH. Whenever I turn on my computer, I get to the part where they was , Welcome , and stuff. But after that, it takes about 15 minutes for the start bar and all the icons to show up. I already tried system restore, but that didn't help either.
Have you tried running an antivirus like AVAST?
this could be a virus on your computer I ecomend doing a disc clean up and then running your antivirus. you may then do a defrag. see if this helps cleaninup and defrag can speed up your system

OMG all of you are WRONG, it is ZYNGA. NOT the dudes system (eyeroll) YES ZYNGA lags on CHEFVILLE whenever you request anything. NOT posting but, requesting. I bought my computer brand new, a samsung, from the box Windows 8 and 64 bit, and it STILL lags when sending requests through CHEFVILLE, from the minute I ran the game and it does it through the library computers, and my friends laptops. So really your "helpful advice" is a bunch of hogwash!
I would reinstall the sound driver by going to the control panel choose system then when the device manager tab comes up choose hardware.Find the sound devices then right click on it to remove it.Windows will autimatically re-install the device.
Disconnect your dazzle and reconnect it at the back of your computer. Click on Start>Control panel>system>hardware>device manager>sound and video games controller> right click on video capture device and uninstall it. Restart your computer. Open your IDVDR and then try to check if the same things again.
there is another FREE program you can try.. try an internet search for AD-AWARE It finds those pesky little memory thieves and oftentimes can eliminate them. I am unfamiliar with your antivirus program.. I would use McAfee or Norton. As for the lagging it sounds like a buffering problem. there is a program I use called System Mechanic that does a pretty decent job of fixing internet and even registry problems. The System mechanic by IOLO (www.iolo.com i think) is a little spendy unless you get in on an offering I got 1 yr service for only 20.00 (vs 40-80 to buy the prog from the store) The musid that is choppy is it while online with a program such as mIRC? if so try #mirc_rainbow maybe the OPS there can help you, just be polite to them and thank them and you will be a welcome visitor anytime you drop by.. Another nice IRC site is #popinn or even #mirc_help (yes the # is neccesary) Good Luck
It may be the speakers are going bad or you may need to update your sound card drivers.Try going to your setting for your sound and make sure the settings are correct.Make sure they are set for laptop stereo speakers with full hardware control.
You could boot to your Windows CD and select "R" for repair installation when that option screen appears after files are loaded. Please let us know if you need instruction on booting to the Windows CD or anything else? Good luck.
I'd recommend the latest video drivers- and strangely enough- defragging the hard drive. Most laggy systems I've seen with plenty of ram (512 or more) that have no spyware on them, and no major ram eaters (norton, spysweeper, mcafee) are fragmented. look in task manager (ctl, alt del) and see how much free ram you have- and see what is using all of it. If you have a lot of ram, and no process is chewing up the ram, or the cpu- then defrag the hard drive.
