Spyware Adware etc and any program you have starting with the pc can cause this issue. Also fragmentation of hd can be part of the cause as well.

I recommend downloading Ad-aware and spybot search and destroy. Make sure the Ad-aware you download is from lavasoft. Also go to my computer classic view then right click on your C:\ go to properties and run defrag software. Use the defragment now button. Analyze will tell you if the software reccomends you defragment.

Also there is a program called Startupmechanic this will tell you programs that are starting up with your pc as well as if they are good or bad. Although I haven't used it myself in a while check it out. Just do a search on either google or download.com.

You can also go to start menu then click run and type in the following: msconfig. this brings up items that boot with system you can uncheck the ones you know for sure are not need in the startup option portion of msconfig. This can be a messy way of doing it so which is why I reccomended Startup Mechanic. Let me know your results.

- Left over programs, old cached and temporary files
So Follow these steps to fix computer problem::
- Delete all the temp files
- Remove unused programs
- install latest drivers from the manufacturer site

First, your pc5300 memory runs default at 6300Mhz, not 333. Perhaps your motherboard Front Side Bus line is 333 in which case the memory will drop to that speed, but if the FSB and memory match speed, then it would run at 6300. Since you have an older unit, I would suppose you are running only 333, and that is average speed for that config. In addition, you are only running 1 gig RAM, which is woefully inadequate for Windows 7, so everything you do is going to be slow.

How to increase the system's process speed?


hi im josh in cebu phils may i helped you?
This is a very common question about a very common problem: My computer is slow, what can I do?
Rest assured that while there are indeed plenty of things you can do to speed up your PC, it may not be entirely the case that the computer is getting "slow" but rather that everything else is getting "fast." You noted that you normally use a newer machine, and many people who express that their computers are slow also have multiple PCs, maybe a newer model at work that is much, much faster. It's possible that your expectations have simply gotten higher over time, and by comparison, your older computer is getting left in the dust. You spend most of the day working on a fast machine, so your perception is that your older computer is getting slower and slower, when in reality it may be just as fast as it ever was. The mind plays a lot of tricks like that. It's something to think about.
Now on to your real question: How to speed up a PC, whether it's slowing down or not. Here's the steps I follow when trying to give a little extra oomph to a PC that needs it.
  • Clean up the disk. Uninstall unneeded programs (especially those that run at startup and/or put something in the system tray), run Disk Cleanup, and defragment the drive. This is a good first step that will almost always take a few seconds off boot time and application loads for any computer.
  • Run a full anti-virus and anti-spyware scan. You never know what's lurking on your machine, and these anti-malware tools can help you get rid of other PC-clogging detritus on your PC, even if it's not harmful.
  • Clean up the registry. This is controversial, as some experts claim registry cleaners don't really help. I've seen evidence to the contrary, so I recommend doing it if you've got a major slowdown. CCleaner is free and worth running.
  • Delete old network connections. Your computer may be trying to connect to shared hard drives that no longer exist. In Windows Explorer right-click on any network shares you don't actively use and click Delete. Under Tools, also click "Disconnect Network Drive" to see if there are any others lurking about.
  • Stomp auto-starting programs. Click Start > Run and type "msconfig" at the prompt. Click the Startup tab and look at all that junk that loads when you launch your PC. Do you really need "Adobe Reader Speed Launch"? Probably not. Turn off anything else that looks useless, but be careful not to disable Windows system components.
Those are the easy and free things you can do. If your computer is still slow you need to move on to the bigger guns.
  • Upgrade RAM. This is the one killer trick that will make almost any computer run faster. With an older PC, you will rarely have enough RAM to run today's memory-hogging operating systems and applications, and adding a high-capacity stick or two of quality RAM will give you a quick speed boost. Adding RAM is fairly simple, even for a novice, and you should be able to do the job in 5 or 10 minutes.
  • Reinstall Windows. If the above tricks haven't helped, it may be time to wipe the slate clean and start again, reformatting your hard drive, reinstalling your applications, and restoring your data files from a backup. You'd be surprised how much more responsive a freshly reinstalled Windows system can be, as you've wiped out years of temp files, garbled registry entries, old versions of software programs that have been upgraded repeatedly, and all sorts of other electronic junk. Reinstalling is easy if you have the "recovery disk" that came with your PC, and only a bit more involved if you're using a retail copy of Windows XP. Just be sure you back up everything you want to take with you before you pull the trigger!
  • Upgrade your hard drive. This is a more complicated solution, but if you're reinstalling Windows (per the prior tip) you might consider upgrading to a bigger and possibly faster hard drive, too. Hard disk storage is a performance bottleneck on every machine, and magnetic disks degrade over time. Some performance issues could be caused by a failing hard drive, even, and upgrading to a new model could really put some zip back in your system. As a bonus, you can use the original hard drive for backups or occasional storage, if you put it in an enclosure. good luck hope i helped you

To choose what to display when Windows starts, how to make the PC faster and even speed up the Internet, go to my YouTube Channel here. It has answers to all kinds of problems.
Also, if your PC is too old, you may need to replace it surely, as it won't be compatible even with the latest light freeware.

The most common reason for slow processing speed is insufficient RAM memory.

Increase the RAM, if RAM available is no more than 512MB, then it must be upgraded.

Check also your hard drive state. If you have less than 1GB free, that will slow down the system. Go to Start>>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Defregmenter and do a Defrag of the hard disk.

If you have at least 1 GB RAM, and you took care of the hard drive, then you can check the process starting up on their own and remove the useless one, or spot mala-ware that can affect speed. You can use a software like Hijack This, and search on google te function of each process started on the list reported by the software.

You can download Hijack this here MajorGeeks | If download does not start, then click at the top of the page, where it says Click Here If It Does Not.
Be careful if you delete the wrong files using this software you can harm the system, and Windows may not work properly.

If you think you have malaware you can also install Spy Bot, and do a system scan. Download Spybot from The home of Spybot.

If all the above does not work, and there is no malaware, then you usually reinstall the system.

Check also the bios settings, BIOS can downgrade the CPU speed on default , even if this is uncommon on recent BIOS.

If a computer is still slow with a fresh system and enough resources then it is one of those rare occasions when you have an hardware fault.
Hardware that can cause slow down is: RAM CPU Motherboard HD Video card.

Some tips on procedure can damage your windows installation. Do not download Hijackthis software and do not change BIOS settings and do not touch hardware unless you are sure of what you are doing.
