    I have the same problem. I have two identical 5100's. Have tried disc cleanup, scans with AdAware, Spybot, CCleaner, etc. Both running AVG virus protection. One of them is great, the other will sometimes take a minute or more to launch an application or open a webpage. Also uses 100% CPU most of the time. Am running Vista Home Premium with 2 gig ram.

    Same problem -- two computers -- one works fine -- the other very slow. Can't find any difference. Very frustrating.

Computer infested and very slow


Reformatting is the best solution for that. Just have your important files backed up first in a safe partition like drive D: and then reformat drive C: After successfully reformatting, don't ever open drive D yet because the virus in there might destroy your system and programs again. You can connect to the internet to get the latest version of AVG. If you are willing to spend a few bucks, you can go for paid AV but if not, I am suggesting free AVG as it won't corrupt your system.

My laptop is hanging and slow when it comes to use the internet.should i reformat it?


before reformatting, follow these
Clean Windows Registry: The registry of the Windows contains immense information. It shall be cleaned all the time and it is the most effective way to boost computer speed in an easy way.
Defragment your PC to increase computer speed: Press Start button > then Programs > Click Accessories > Press System Tools > And Disk Defragmenter.
This feature will take some time but it will compact large data into smaller pieces creating a lot of free space for the computer to run faster. You can delete unnecessary files from your computer prior to performing disk defragmentation.
Add more RAM to Speed up your computer: If you are running a lot of programs and the capacity of your RAM is short. This will surely help you to make computer run faster with Windows 7 or Vista in seconds. Fortunately it does not take much time. Make it sure that you place it the right way.
Clear Cache, history and temporary internet files: Another way which I assume is a 'best way to speed up my computer' is to clear the cache, history and temporary internet files. Removing junk files frees up a lot of space required to make computers run faster.
Turn off unnecessary programs from start up: A lot of computer users complain that their Windows 7 or Vista does not boot faster. I would recommend to such people to have a shorter start up items list.
Have low intensity graphics If you are not an ardent gaming user then you can afford to run computer faster with low intensity graphics.
Uninstall unused software and programs: It is very common that people install a number of computer programs and then stop using them. These unused programs shall be removed to increase the computer speed.
The above guidelines were really helpful to speed up my computer. These are safe and do impact computer performance in a positive way.
Frustrated of the dead slow speed of your computer? Do you wish to speed up computer in seconds? Please remember to clean Windows registry with Intel Software Partner, RegInOut BY. After this scan you will feel how much faster is your computer running.
