My laptop is sort of running slower and I wondered if it was because my space is almost full on my laptop? And I also wanted to know if I can do anything to make it go back to normal. One other thing is...


First of all, simply delete your browsing history and cookies. Websites will sometimes download cookies or copies of their pages to your hard drive for faster loading later. The unfortunate thing is that this can slow down your pc. Using your browser, delete your browsing history, cookies, and all offline content.


If your computer takes a long time to boot up, take note of how many programs you have loading on start up. Pay attention to the bottom right of your screen and watch the icons. Having a large amount of programs loading on start up will make your boot times considerably slower. Open these programs and tell them not to start on start-up, or simply delete them if you don't use them.


Sometimes spyware or other malware will be downloaded to your computer and can adversly affect performance. I suggest downloading a spyware deleting program like Lavasoft's AdAware. It is free and reliable. When you use it, make sure that you update the definitions each time to make sure you search for the newest spyware. Try running the tests at least once a week.

I cant boot my computer!!! HELP ME!!!! Boot0: error


you may have to format the hard drive and load Windows again to restore the computer to it's default state.
In the Windows environment you are to "uninstall" all programs not delete because the DLL ( dynamic link library) are attached to the program therefore when the program is deleted then the windows cabinet files are deleted with then and then the computer has no instruction to the next step in this case the boot sector was erased.
the program you installed I suppose was a Macintosh emulator was attached to the boot sector of the hard drive and then was deleted with the program.

First uninstall and program you don't use with Add/Remove Programs.
Look in Start - Programs - StartUp to see some of them. You can delete these safely if you want.

Use AutoRuns to see what other startup programs you have and where they are located.

You can also Start - Run - MSCONFIG and use Startup tab to enable or dissble some programs and then reboot to see if it still works OK. If not then you can just run MSCONFIG again and tick the box to put them back in again.

Cant get rid of program


It may have put something into the registry so that it will always download and run on start up. You can try the following to get rid of it. 1) Open the registry editor. (To do this, go to Start -> Run and type: regedit ) 2) Browse to the following location HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run 3) Look at all the keys (items) in this folder. The program you are looking for may be listed here. If you find it, make note of where the file is located and delete the file that is mentioned in the key. Then delete the key. This will keep it form restarting after reboot.
