Try Cleaning it out . Run some cleaners suchs as
Adware - http://www.lavasoft.com/
CCleaner - http://www.ccleaner.com/
Eusing Registry cleaner - http://www.eusing.com/free_registry_cleaner/registry_cleaner.htm

Those should remove alot of unwanted items and malicious files that you dont want.

another thing is to goto Start ,programs,accessory, system tools , and do a disk cleanup . ... Once a month i do suggest doing a disk defragment and thats in system tools to ..... all other programs i would run weekly !!
Good Luck !!! GD515

My System configuration is i3 with 4GB ram. and there is only 3 softwares(ms-office,adobe reader,one medicines related software). My system became slow.


Try increasing the virtual memory setting in the windows operating system. Also see if there is a defragmentation tool on the windows operating system. I am assuming it is a windows operating system.
You may have a virus that might slow down or spyware slowing down p,c May need to run an anti spyware or anti virus program to check for these.

yeah your system doesnt meet system requirement for running windows Vista Premium. Minimum memory required is 1GB.
Another system requirement is 128memory of graphic card with DirectX 9.0 capable and WDDM 1.0 driver support.
so if you dont have graphic card system will take amount of RAM..this why computer became slow.
If you have 'other components' you can take the RAM not HDD then install it..just make sure the RAM is supported by your current system..
I just recomend that would be better using Windows XP, with less RAM required..

P.S : see here for more detail about windows Vista.

Run the disk defragmenter. It sound like the hard drive needs defragging. Go to programs,system tools,disk defragmenter or download the free version of Defraggler by piriform. Its a good tool.

I want ot install ansys 11 on my compuer can u


install normaly ansys. then launch the "setup licence" it will look for a licence file in a folder named "Licencing".
The licence file you can get it from a folder named "magnitude" where you can find aansys.dat file. you open it with notepad and then change the name of your computer and an adress. you will get these information from executing "WinHostId".
when finshing this changement, you execute "keygen" this will ran a licence.dat file. You copy it and you paste it in the licencing file. and wait for the end of installation.

this is not all :) you have to go to the environmental variables and create a new one:
ANSYSLMD_LICENSE_FILE = 1055@host
where host is the name of your computer

click ok and enjoy Ansys

I have installed the windows xp, after installing the os my system became very very slow


Deepak,  Possible reasons are:
  1. Free space on the drive on which xp is installed might be less. Try diskclean up and also diskfragmentation which is available in Start Menu -> Programs->Accessories-->System Tools.
  2. Services runing at the startup might be more, type msconfig in the Run prompt and go to services tab and uncheck the service which you know very well about it. Don't touch the sytem files / related services.
Let me know if this helps.

PC has slowed down and sometimes freezes


run your anti virus software. check your task manager by pressing ctrl-alt-del and selecting task manager. or right click windows system tray (the one with the time and other icons) then choose task manager. Go to processes tab, click memory to sort and show the program which uses the highest memory. check if the running file is a valid program application. If you are unsure, let me know.

Thanks

My HP pavilion ze 4900 notebook became very very slow over night. It has 256 ram. will extra ram fix it? It runs hot. did the fan quit?


Do you have a program that removes spyware and adware.Also what operating system do you have? More ram will speed it up.An easy way to see how much you can install would be to go to crucial.com just to get an idea of what you can do with it.You need to defragment your drive also.If you have not defraged your pc,it will cause it to slow down also and even stop working altogether.I haved used spywaredoctor for the last 4 years and it has proven itself to me.Hope this helps.Goodluck.
