My commputer is very slow could you help me speed it up?When opening a program it takes 10-15 mins gpr a program to open.


You probably have a number of viruses on your computer. My suggestion is to download these two programs and uninstall your current anti-virus software (if any).

AVG Free:

http://free.avg.com/us-en/homepage

AVG is a great anti-virus program that will always be running and protecting you.

Maleware Bytes:

http://www.malwarebytes.org/


You will want to run this free program as soon as you download it. It will remove any viruses on your computer. This is a great tool to use about once a month to make sure your computer is clean. Do a full scan and wait for it to complete. If you have completed the steps above and still have the problem, you will need more RAM. RAM is temporary memory that your computer uses when it is on. If you have very low RAM, then you will have a very slow computer.

System running very slow, programs not responding including anti virus which is not performing virus scan.


- Open Task Manager (Ctrl-Shift-Esc).
- Open Processes Tab.
- Make the column "CPU Time" shown (somewhere in menu).

You will see, which process eat the performance.

If Task Manager doesn't start, it must be a quite clever virus. Try
Anti-Malware
http://www.malwarebytes.org
It is free.

Windows running very slow


Have you scanned the PC (all drives) for spyware and viruses?

Spybot search & destroy is a good, free application.

For anti-virus, Trend Micro PC-Cillan or CA Internet Security
(Nortons will drastically slow down your computer)

Have you loaded any other software on the C drive?
Often programs designed to load up & run in the background at startup cause a PC to run slow.

RAM can be another culprit. 1GB minimum is best.

Hope this helps
