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 Windows may not work properly.

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

If you boot from the Windows CD you should have the option to Format the Disk. Since you are using an Upgrade you will need to format the disk and install the Original OS then do the upgrade again.

Shift key acting erractic


You could have a keyboard that has gone bad, had somthing spilled on it or needs an updated driver, If you have spilled anything on it, you can disasebble it and clean it. I dont think it is the driver.
It sounds more like a keyboard problem. If the keyboard is old, it may be just getting worn out, they use a circit board and they do go bad.
Hope this helps, good luck

You can see some of the programs running in the backgrund by pressing "run" in the start menu, then type "msconfig" and OK, check under the flap "Autostart" , you will see a list on programs who starting upp whit your windows, you can tick off those programs that you dont want to start whit windows

Internet Explorer problem


It is possible you have some spyware/adware or virus on your machine.
If you don't already have it I would suggest running some sort of antivirus and also antispyware software on your machine to check.

Free AnitVirus software at http://free.grisoft.com/
And AntiSpyware software at http://www.lavasoftusa.com/products/ad_aware_free.php

You may need to download this on another machine and then copy across to the machine with the problem.

Good luck

SPEED of COMPUTER and HANG UP problem


goldencoin:

1). new pc's usually come with baisc softwares so it is neat and tidy. when you took it home, you probably added a lot of other softwares, which will use up a lot of pc resources, namely Hard Drive, memory, data buses etc.....
this is one of the reasons it gets slower.
2). newly added softwares, bought or downloaded, if not originals, may contain virus. this is 2nd reason for being slow.
3).anti virus softwares also take up memory and speed, especially when it's running obviously or behind.
4). suggestion - after you clean up you machine by re-installing operating system OS (such as windows or linux etc.), make an image of the partition of the hard drive. when you feel pc slows down, bring back the image to overwrite the contaminated partiton. you can find some softwares named "ghost". that's it.
5). depending how big is your hard drive, make partitions. "C" for OS and drivers and simple programs only, "D", for example, for all other stuffs if you do not have other partitions. size of partition "C" should have 2G-10G and is very much depending on how many softwares you will install and how big your hard drive is.
