They imformed me that there were too many processes running on my computer which is causing it to run very slow. I would love some help in resolving this issue. Thanks a bunch!

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.

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.

My computer is very slow uploading how do i fix this problem please


You may need to provide more details on this. But...
1). Do you mean that your computer is slow BOOTING up?
It may be that you need to Upgrade your RAM (memory) because as you add more programs applications to your computer over time, many of them load up some apps into memory on computer start-up. One way out is to type msconfig.exe (Start > Run > msconfig.exe), go to 'Start up' and uncheck the programs you can do without on start-up. But best way is to increase Memory.
2). Do you mean UPLOADING files to the internet?
This will depend on the speed of your Internet Link, and / or the speed of the server on the internet you are uploading to. Try uploading to some other destination and compare. If it is slow generally, then you may need to contact your Internet Service Provider and ask for Uplink bandwidth increase.
Hope this helped.

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

Slow internet on 1 computer


download atf cleaner to the desktop of the slow computer. open it , check the box that says "select all" then click on "clean selected". the first time you run this, it may take a few minutes. this program empties all the junk internet explorer saves, which reduces bandwidth issues. I run mine everytime i get off the internet. after the first run, it runs much quicker, and always run it twice or until you get the message "no files were removed" if you can't get to this point, you should run your virus scanner in safe mode. if your getting fast internet on the other three computers , it's not your provider, it's something between your router and your monitor, usually trash your web browser is trying to update while you are trying to surf. www.atribune.org/ccount/click.php?id=1

run this program , post again here if you need further assistance..

My laptop is running very slowly. HELP !


This issue can be caused by any of the below possibilities.
Hard disk drive is short on available disk space.

Several software programs have been installed/uninstalled leaving behind bad files and/or confusing the software.

Data Corruption.
Computer is overheating.
Bad Hardware.

PC Solution:
Below are steps for Microsoft Windows that should help speed up the computer or determine why the computer is running slow.
Not enough hard disk drive space
If you have a hard disk drive that is 10GB or smaller, ensure that there is at least 200MB of hard disk drive space free. If you have a hard drive larger than this size, verify that there is at least 500MB of free hard disk space. This available space allows the computer to have room for the swap file to increase in size as well as room for temporary files.

Hard drive corrupted or fragmented

Hardware conflicts
Verify that the Device Manager has no conflicts, but if conflicts are present, resolve them.
Issues with Windows XP prefetch

Issues in Windows 95 / 98 autoexec.bat / config.sys
If you are using Microsoft Windows 95 or Windows 98 and do not plan on running any MS-DOS programs from MS-DOS follow the below steps.
Click Start, Run and type command and press enter.
In the MS-DOS window type cd\ to get to C:\> and then type ren autoexec.bat autoexec.ch and ren config.sys config.ch
This will rename your autoexec.bat and config.sys and help make sure memory is being optimized through Windows.
