The first thing I'd try to do is see what programs are running at startup. To do this Click on Start--> Run -->type "msconfig" without the quotes.

Click on the Startup Tab and view all the programs that are running at startup. As for deselecting which programs run at startup you can directly ask me which ones you can disable. For the most part all instant messengers and most program files can be disabled.

DO NOT disable any Windows/system32 files!

Every thing i click on on my desktop starts then


I played around with W8 on an Asus notebook with a 1GHz CPU and found that each programme will open over the top of another.You could have many trying to run and causing the CPU to overload and freeze.
Waiting for the activity to slow from startup by observing the LED activity of the hard drive usually means all startup programmes have loaded and there is less draw on the CPU resources.Trying to access other software while startup is incomplete will compound sluggishness especially if the laptop is a netbook or has a low speed CPU.
If you experience the issue again please wait a few minutes before trying to access or cancel any programme to see if will work through any bottleneck created.

Lenovo ideapad z575 running slow


I would start by cleaning the machine with CCLEANER free found at: http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/. Now what is running on your machine that is not needed, use CCLEANER ,TOOLS, STARTUP, to disable what is not needed to start at startup. I have no idea what is running on your machine but remember everything that is open will use memory and cpu power. look at Services and task manager , processes, for memory hoggs that are not needed. Get rid of TOOLBARS on browsers they are killers. Also install and run MALWAREBYTES free :http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ Take a look at this tutorial: http://www.computingunleashed.com/speed-up-windows-7-ultimate-guide-to.html

How can i get my computer to run the way it use to


Windows tends to slow down with time. That is why so many people reset to original status.


Slow Windows Machine! Sounds like not enough resources such as RAM and CPU. Check Performance in Task-Manager (CTRL-ALT-DELETE). High CPU levels causes hang ups like freezing. Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate. Consider increasing RAM. Uninstall any extras like those pushy toolbars, and add-ons.

Slow internet, gaming, everything.


Try Chrome browser, but Windows based systems tend to slow down with time. Specially with older and slower systems like mine. Try disabling startup processes. In Windows Start > Run (search in Win 7) type msconfig. Go to Startup and disable anything that you don't require to start. They will kick off only when you run the programs instead of utilizing resources like memory and CPU for the get go.

U tube videos play slow and sound plays first then visual starts jerkly to play. I have added the max extra ram


That may be your network connection or your cpu load. I'm going to say your cpu.

On a older laptop like that the cpu can run out of power when playing video's. The extra ram should have made some improvement for other things and helped a bit with the video.

First we want to do ctrl-alt delete to bring up your task manager. Look at the CPU usage number. With nothing else running it should be 0-1% maybe as high as 2% then drop to zero. Anything higher than that and you have too much running. If you click on the top of the colom where it says CPU it will sort by cpu use. You may have to scroll up or down to get to the big numbers, most should show zero. The big number should be system idle at say 95%+ followed the task manger taking up most of the rest. Usually what happens on older machines is they don;t have the extra horsepower to cope with all the new programs demands so they bog down. So what you can do to help this is to stop anything that you don't need from running. These are things like speed loaders or auto updates. For example if you run office or use adobe products you don;t need to have it load a speed loader (which doesn;t really seem to speed up anything) everytime. If you look at what is in the start-all programs-startup these are things that are loaded at startup. Removing things from here will stop them from auto starting. If you don;t know what these things are chances are you never use them. If you drag them out of the startup to the previous menu you can still manually start them.

Next make sure you don;t have any messengers running. Most seem to set themselves up to load with windows. Some like MSN are bad for loading the cpu. So under the options for those uncheck load at windows startup.

And last you may be running a antivirus program. These are also pretty hard on the cpu. Usually there is an icon near the clock. If you right click on it there is usually a menu selection that will turn off (or back on) the antivirus program . It should restart when you reboot.

You may also want to see if there are any other programs or managers such as print mamagers or other programs that want to load at boot. Either disable these from auto starting or exit from them before trying to watch.

Those are the easy things to try to speed things up. I have a old compaq I use for watching videos from time to time that is about the same as yours. These are the tricks I use to watch youtube vids. When I don;t turn them off etc I had the same symptoms.

Extremely slow starting up


The most common reason for slow startup is slow processing speed, often because of 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 Windowsmay not work properly.

If you think you have malaware you can also install Spy Bot, and do a system scan. DownloadSpybot 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.

Think pad T30 - very slow to shut down


Your computer needs a clean.
Be sure that your computer is not virus or spyware infected.

Check if the fan is working, another cause could be related to a hardware issue.
