If your pc is malware & virus free then try these steps:
- Delete Temporary files:
Click Start - Run, type in %temp% and then click OK

Delete everything that's inside this folder. Its all junk, If some files resist then leave them.


Also delete content of this folder:
c:\windows\temp

Just copy paste above folder path in address bar and Press Enter.


If problem still occurs then you need complete optimization by using Intel Software Partner Reginout.

If your computer has 512 Mb or less RAM then install more RAM.

Computer slow... struggles


Most likely loaded up with unnecessary programs (that you dont use anymore) running on start up, or duplicate programs trying to do the same job (multiple antivirus or spyware programs), or viruses/spyware running in the background, or being hacked (someone remotely using your system), or Windows programming not updated, or system drivers not updated, or it may just be slow because your antivirus/antispyware program is running. Whew! If its not any of these, maybe your computer needs to be upgraded? Extra ram/memory usually helps if you dont have much. These are good solutions I have come across in my 20+ years working with computers. For most people, the fastest and easiest way to eliminate any software/virus/spyware problem is to delete everything (format) and do a fresh install of all windows, windows updates, and motherboard drivers. If it is still slow after that, then a hardware upgrade is highly recommended.

Desktop pc running very slowly, esp internet


First things first: You say that you only have 1 megabyte of ram. I think that you meant to say gigabyte. But if you do only have one mb, then you definitely need to get more ram. Secondly, press control+alt+delete and click the processes tab. Please say the number of processes running and the CPU Usage (they're counted and documented at the bottom left of the task manager window) in your reply. What anti-spyware checks did you run and have you checked your computer with an online scanner like kaspersky? Do you have any anti-virus (McAfee, Norton, AVG) software running? Close any unnecessary processes in the bottom right of your desktop screen on the toolbar (these icons are displayed next to your clock).

Computer runs too slowly and ''grinds''


Depending on the situation, It could be you need more ram. If your running Windows Vista, 2-3 years old computers are probably coming with about 512mb-2 gb's or ram. In which case grab at least 3 gb's or ram and you'll be ok. If it's an xp system. grab at least 1gb or ram. Internet delay though could possibly be due to your ISP or perhaps a virus/spyware. There are certain viruses and spyware that slow down internet connection while leaving your pc running fast.

Anti Virus


Kapersky Internet security is the complete software suite, and it does include, firewall, internet security and some anti spyware feature.

Internet security is better, but it will also slow down the computer more.

If you have a good computer with at least 1 GB RAM, and CPU at least 1.6 GHZ intall Internet security. If the computer is slow or it is an old computer, then install antivirus only, and be more careful.
