Well you are having all of those problems because you have viruses in your system. That's what viruses do they mess up your machine. So first you have to buy a virus scanner. Norton 360, McAfee Virus, AVG Virus are all good virus programs. You can get a copy at WalMart, BestBuy, etc. Install that on your machine and it will get rid of the viruses. Good Luck

One of the first things to do is download a program called "Malware Bytes" (Google it). Install and run the scanner/cleaner to wipe any nasties off of the machine. You may find that after running this program many of the woes you've described magically go away (especially the slow operation)...

Wifi Keeps Dropping


Dropouts are usually caused by the modem itself and not so much the wifi unit in the laptop. Next time it drops out, try resetting the modem router first. If this fixes it immediately the problem lies there. Next is to identify what wifi card you have in your system. You can find this in Device Manager. Then go to the original manufacturers website and see if there is a later driver for your card. If so, download and install it from there and not the Asus site. Sometimes the laptop manufacturers are a bit slow in keeping individual 3rd party drivers up to date.

Internet in my computer is very slow


Slow Internet can be caused by many thing, I need more info to make a informed suggestion, But you can start be running a FULL virus scan with a good anti virus, also you want to run a FULL scan with a malware program, I would suggest using MALWAREBYTES found here:http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/. If you do not have a UP TO DATE Anti-Virus, one can be found on the filehippo site for free, REMEMBER to uninstall the anti virus on your machine, if you want to try another anti virus, always use the Makers REMOVAL TOOL if they supply one, I use AVAST, but that is your choice. If you have a Anti Virus make sure it's updated and working properly. You statement,"Internet in my computer is very slow" does not give me much to work with. Need computer Manufactuer, Model, type OS, etc. Also are you using TOOLBARS on you IE or what ever Broswer you are using. TOOLBARS, MESSENGERS, CHAT, any thing that is "hogging" your resourses when using your broswer SHOULD BE DISABLED, the rule is the more "Stuff" you have running, on you computer at start, or your broswer will slow it down. It's like YOU, on a long walk, ever half mile you pick up a 10 pound weight, after a day treck you have to slow down a bit. To make a short story long, GET RID OF THE EXCESS BAGGAGE. If you need assistance respond to this solution.

Computer is slow


You need to to reinstall windows if the startup and shutdown is slow.

You might have a virus or infection so you can try downloading and running MalwareBytes.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type:"Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download andinstall malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When thesite opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do notclick the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the GuiInterface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version orDecline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run aQUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be inred. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad textdocument will open up showing you the results. You can close the textdocument and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTEDRESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When itfinishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot yourmachine.

Hi i let myu boyfriend go online i asked him not to go on any game sites and download from them., i come home and turn on laptop and it is soooo slow., it takes at least half hour to work and when i open...


Click Start
Click All Programs
Click Accessories
Click System Tools
Click System Restore

Use System Restore to "restore my computer to an earlier point in time",
i.e., pick some date/time before your UNTRUSTWORTHY EX-boyfriend started to use your computer.

This "time-travel" should work. Then, do a "full" virus-scan, to see if any viruses are still present.

The boot is very slow, sometimes takes 2-3 minutes, internet access and downloads also slow


Hi,

Any other unusual things happening besides it's working too slow ?

Might want to check for viruses, they usually eat up computer resources.

Thanks

My computer is slow. What can I do without


Depends- where is it exactly slow? is it while surfing the internet, or when running progrmas? either way, you can make it go faster.
If your internet is slow, you should scan your computer for viruses and spyware using suitable programs(for example- avast anti virus or spybot). If you still experience the same problem I would advise you to delete the computer after backing it up, and then installing a new copy of Windows.

if your problem is with programs running slowly- I can advise you to download this software, which can extremely help- CCleaner

Unless you actuallt get the blue screen of death, don't worry too much....you may have just had too much going on for the ram and processor to handle along with the web traffic in and out of the computer...sometimes causes things to slow down to a crawl and even freeze. Sometimes they work themselves out and sometimes they dont and you have to reset the system.

My presario 700 is soooo slooow


Have you cleared the temporary internet files? Also, download ccleaner (its free) this will delete unneeded files from the registry. You should also run and antivirus and antispyware program followed by defragging the hard drive. That should improve your speed.
