Hit the Ctr-Alt-Del button. Tab>Processes you will see a list of all that are currently running. On the bottom is an End Process Button. Be aware stopping a process may cause your operating system to become unstable. However, there are some that can be easily ended: For example, if you are not using Bluetooth and the Bluetooth process is running you can kill no problem. You get the point.

You can close them manually from the right system tray, click on those you do not need & close them. You can also use the windows task manager to shut down processes you do not need. Hope this helps.

My netflix is running slow..the sound and picture don't sync up what causes this?

The problem is that your internet speed is not fast enough from your provider. Call the provider and see if you can move up to faster speed and that will help your problem

Facebook is running slow

<span>If when you view facebook and it is <span style="font-weight: bold;">slow to respond</span> to your actions, go between pages etc this can be caused be any <span style="font-weight: bold;">number of issues</span>. <br /><br />1) It may be the facebook website is <span style="font-weight: bold;">overloaded</span>(to many visitors) and is <span style="font-weight: bold;">running slow</span>. There is really nothing you can do about this other than to voice your frustration at Facebook by contacting them. You will have to <span style="font-weight: bold;">wait</span> and try again at another time to see if it is running faster.<br /><br />2) Your <a href="/../support/t9374497-facebook_running_slow#"><span>internet</span><span> </span><span>connection</span></a> is experiencing <span style="font-weight: bold;">high latency</span>. You can check your internet connection by trying other websites. Are they going slow as well? If not, then you can really rule this problem out. If you do however experience slowness at other sites then you may be experiencing a <span style="font-weight: bold;">degraded internet connection</span>. I recommend a couple tips at this point,<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">--</span>If you are <span style="font-weight: bold;">downloading files</span> from the internet, or have other <a href="/../support/t9374497-facebook_running_slow#"><span>computers</span></a> or devices using your internet connection this can use up all your <a href="/../support/t9374497-facebook_running_slow#"><span>bandwidth</span></a> and slow down your connection. Try disabling any other devices on your network to see if this helps. This can especially be the case if you are downloading music and videos online. <span style="font-weight: bold;">If</span> you have a wireless home network and it is <span style="font-weight: bold;">unsecured</span>(no password set on wireless connection) then other people like neighbors may be using your connection. You will need to set a password on your router so you can stop unauthorized access to your network.<br /><br />-Try to <span style="font-weight: bold;">power cycle</span> all of your <a href="/../support/t9374497-facebook_running_slow#"><span>network</span></a> devices. Do it in this order, turn off your internet modem, router and <a href="/../support/t9374497-facebook_running_slow#"><span>computer</span></a>. After 10 seconds turn on your modem, after another 30 seconds turn on your router and after 30 seconds turn on your computer. Now try and see if your internet connection is improved. <br /><br />-<span style="font-weight: bold;">Check network cables</span> and splitters. Make sure all of your cables are plugged in and firmly. If you have cable splitters, go ahead and unscrew the cables and screw them back in firmly.<br /><br />-Lastly, <span style="font-weight: bold;">contact your Internet</span> Service Provider(ISP). Your ISP may be able to resolve the issue on their end or send a <a href="/../support/t9374497-facebook_running_slow#"><span>tech</span></a> out to investigate the degraded internet connection.<br /><br />3)Your computer may have <span style="font-weight: bold;">performance issues</span>. If a lot of programs are running on your computer this will obviously slow things down. Try stopping any additional programs and see if this helps. <br /><br />4)One other additional step you can take is to try and <span style="font-weight: bold;">clear your internet browser cache</span>. In <span>Internet Explorer</span><span style="font-weight: bold;"> </span>go to Tools &gt; Internet Options and click on the new window make sure you are on the first tab. Click Delete under the Browsing History section. In <span>FireFox</span> go to the Firefox button at the top left(newest version) and hover over History. Click on Clear Recent History and make sure all boxes are checked except Site Preferences. Once you clear the cache be sure to restart the browser. <br /><br />I hope this article was informative. Please check out some of my other Tips and Tricks articles by clicking on my name and then clicking Tips on my profile page. You may find additional articles that will be informative! <br /><br />Regards,<br />G33k<br /><br /><br /><img src="g33k4u_5.jpg" /><br /><br /><br style="font-weight: bold;" /><span>Keywords</span><br style="font-weight: bold;" /><span style="font-weight: bold;">facebook is running slow, facebook is slow, facebook not responding, facebook actions are slow, facebook is very slow</span><br /></span>

Solution on a slow Internet connections Problem  The major  causes for a slow...

Solution on a slow Internet connections Problem 
The major  causes for a slow Internet connections. A poor-performing connection can be caused by broadband router configuration issues, wireless interference, or any of several other technical issues with your home network. Follow these steps to diagnose slow Internet connections.
 1. Broadband Router Settings
As the centerpiece of a network, a broadband router can be responsible for slow Internet connections if configured improperly. For example, the MTU setting of your router will lead to performance issues if set too high or too low. Ensure your router's settings are all consistent with the manufacturer's and your Internet Service Provider (ISP) recommendations. Carefully record any changes you make to your router's configuration so that you can undo them later if necessary.
 2. Wireless Signal Interference
Wi-Fi and other types of wireless connections may perform poorly due to signal interference, which requires computers to continually resend messages to overcome signal issues. Household appliances and even your neighbors' wireless networks can interfere with your computers. To avoid slow Internet connections due to signal interference, reposition your router for better performance and change your Wi-Fi channel number.
 3. Internet Worms
An Internet worm is a malicious software program that spreads through computer networks. If any of your computers are infected by an Internet worm, they may begin spontaneously generating network traffic without your knowledge, causing your Internet connection to appear slow. Run antivirus software regularly to diagnose and remove these worms from your computers.
 4. Running Background Applications
Some software applications you install on a computer run in the background, quietly consuming network resources. Unlike worms, these are programs designed to do useful work. Peer to peer (P2P) programs in particular can heavily utilize your network and cause connections to appear slow. It's easy to forget these applications are running. Always check computers for any programs running in the background when troubleshooting a slow network.
 5. Faulty Network Equipment
When routers, modems or cables fail, they typically won't support connections. Certain technical glitches in network equipment, however, adversely affect performance even though connections are maintained. To troubleshoot potentially faulty equipment, temporarily re-arrange and re-configure your gear while experimenting with different configurations. Try bypassing the router, swapping cables and changing network adapters to isolate the slow performance to a specific component of the system.
 6. Service Provider Issues
Internet speed ultimately depends on the service provider. Your ISP may change their network's configuration, or suffer technical difficulties, that inadvertently cause your Internet connection to run slow. ISPs may also intentionally install filters or controls on the network that can lower your performance. Don't hesitate to contact your service provider if you suspect they are responsible for a slow Internet connection.

First thing I would do is take the desktop outside and clean it out with two cans of compressed air.

HEAT can really slow a machine down. Let me know if that makes a difference (good to do either way) and we'll go from there.

Day time all is good . after 5:00 or so it is very slow **** mostly no signal at all.

Your internet? if its your internet than you need to talk to your provider. If it is your laptop then you must have a program taht auto-starts at 6. I suggest you look through all your processors and make sure you aren't running a ghost image program which slows down your computer.

Hope this helps ^^. Please dont forget to rate, Thanks

Windows Networking Issue

FIOS and DSL use different modems and or gateway devices. Sounds like you were using a DSL gateway device with networking setup and when you moved to FIOS, the tech did not duplicate your network on your new FIOS gateway. OR you had a 3rd party router e.g. Linksys that was removed from the setup when FIOS was installed.
Either way, Verizon is who you should contact. Just tell them your network went down after you moved from DSL to FIOS. Dont mention Microsoft or Livewebtv.
