use these steps: 1- reinstall your operating system (OS). 2- after the OS installed , download and install a powerful anti virus(with latest updates) (like NOD32 ANTI Virus or Kaspersky etc)
3- start a full scan (in anti virus options). 4- reinstall your OS again and enjoy fast speed. NOTE:always remember to use an updated anti virus on your Laptop. and if your laptop worked slow again use this way: 1- start "RUN" from start menu.(if you are using windows 7 go to accessories) 2- enter "msconfig". 3- go to startup tab. 4- disable some installed software (like yahoo messenger or ID Manager etc) in start up but be careful not to disable windows applications.
If your laptop is slow then it is not necessary for you to increase you system RAM. Try the following steps Kindly comment if these steps do not work. I shall lwt you know how to install another RAM module.
1) Open internet explorer -> Tools-> Internet options ->General -> Browsing History -> Delete -> Check all boxes -> Delete. (IE 8, The process is quite similar in other browsers as well)
2)For XP Start-> Run-> type temp-> Ok-> Select all-> (Shift +Delete)
For vista Start-> Start Search-> type temp-> Ok-> Select all-> (Shift +Delete)
3) For XP Start-> Run -> type %temp%-> Ok-> Select all -> (shift+delete)
For Vista Start-> Start Search-> type %temp%-> Ok-> Select all-> (Shift +Delete)
4) Turn off laptop, Remove battery , Remove AC adapter, Press power button for 2 minutes. Put both back on. Turn on laptop.
5) Run virus scan and check for malware and other virus related issues. If anything is found delete the infected files.
6) For XP Go to Control Panel-> Add and remove programs-> Remove all unnecessary softwares
For Vista Go to Control Panel-> programs-> Installed Progams->Remove all unnecessary softwares
7) For XP Run-> msconfig-> Startup->Disable all
For Vista Start search -> msconfig -> Startup -> Disable all
8) Check for the system RAM. If your laptop has 2 memory cards installed. One might have failed. So try to remove it and fix it back again and check.

1) Launch services.msc from a run command 2) Find the SLUNotify service & stop it 3) Find the Software Licensing service & stop it (it may say that ReadyBoost needs that service to run; stop it anyway) 4) Restart both services, starting with Software Licensing
