Question about Computers & Internet
You need to click on the icon in the bottom left hand corner of your screen, it will either be a start button or a blue circle with a windows icon depending on the Operating System your running. After this there will be a search box type in the word "MSCONFIG" without the quotes, it will bring up the System Configuration Utility. Click on the startup tab and then everything you see in there that has checkmarks next to it is everything that is running in the background. It may be alot.
Go ahead and click on the box disable all and then click on ok and let the computer reboot. If your computer reboots and things are speeded up then you know software is the issue. You can then go into add/remove programs in the control panel and start uninstalling programs that you know for sure your not going to be using.
If things are still slow then it could be a problem with a virus, spyware, trojans, malware, etc. That could be taking up your memory and you might want to run a virus scan to see what it comes up with.
Hope this helps.
