Hello,

My name is ArmyMason, might I suggest trying ccleaner www.ccleaner.com and see if that resolves the issue. CCleaner cleans out registry and could resolve some issues. Here is a link that shows registry tweeks to help with speed issues also. http://pcs.suite101.com/article.cfm/speed_up_internet_explorer

If this doesnt work might I suggest checking out our premium service and chat live with a tech.

Thanks,
Armymason

My acer am1200 is slow


It sounds like you need to do some cleanup, first go into IE explorer tools> internet options click on delete history. Next at the command line run disk defragmenter

My N100 notebook is very slow in process


if it is a windows computer, try running defragmenter and disk cleanup.
to run defragmenter, in the search box in the start menu (in vista and windows 7) and search "defragmenter" select the c drive, and defragment it.. while you're at it, set up a weekly defragment with the defragmenter schedule.
To run disk cleanup, search for "disk cleanup" in the same search box. select the c drive, and check all the things you want to clean up.
you can always just do a scan with your antivirus to check if theres a virus slowing your system down.

Many factors may cause your Windows 7 running slow: lack of memory, useless programs, wrong startup settings, junk files, registry redundancies, viruses or spyware and more.

Have an ACER netbook. It was running very slowly. Was told that there is zero space left on the hard drive and that a system restore is required. Would you please tell me how to do this? Thanks


Hi,

I recommend you have a quick look in your documents, music & pictures folders and clean out unused/unwanted files first.

System restore is a great tool but not usually the right tool to use to free up hdd space :)

If your running on Windows I also suggest running the Disk Cleanup wizard.

Win 7 / Vista : Start -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Cleanup.

Win XP : Start -> All programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Cleanup.

Once DC has analyzed the PC it will come up with a set of options. It should be safe to select the following and Click OK to continue removing them.
  1. Temporary Internet Files
  2. Recycle Bin
  3. Debug Dump files (WIN 7 / Vista)
  4. Temporary Files
Once you click OK Windows will then remove these files from your HDD freeing up some space. Its always a good idea to run Disk Defragmenter afterwards to ensure optimum performance.

Win 7 / Vista : Start -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Defragmenter.

Win XP : Start -> All programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Defragmenter.

Select your primary O/S drive (usually C:) from the list and Click Defragment. Wait for the Defragementer to complete (It might take some time :) ) then restart the PC.

Hope this helps

:)

Why are my pc to slow and how can i find a good virusprogram>?


Speed depends on:
* the disk-drive -- run "Disk Defragmenter" to optimize the placement of files, and run "Disk Cleanup" to delete unnecessary files;
* the CPU-speed (a laptop computer running only on battery power will slow itself down; so, connect the AC power)
* the amount of RAM (add more RAM).

See: http://www.Microsoft.com/security_essentials for free anti-virus software for XP/Vista/7 (not Windows 2000).

Computer takes longer to boot up, plus is running very slow


1. To increase PC boot speed:
There must be too many programs automatically start when you boot your PC. To manage them, click Run, type in "msconfig", select "Boot", then you can disable unnecessary programs from that list.

2. To increase PC running speed:
* Adding RAM is the most effective method, but if the RAM is already at the maximum, then do the following.
* Run disk cleanup and defragmenter. But to be honest, the built-in Disk Cleanup and Disk Defragmenter run quite slow and they will take you quite a long time, so I never use them. Third-party programs are better.
* Run registry optimizer software and defrag. No Windows built-in tools to do this. Search on google or refer to this free registry cleaner review.

This is a very strange solution, hopefully someone can help you out more than me, though whenever I have problems that are strange especially with microsoft email or anything internet related I delete my temporary internet files and reboot, and the problems go away.

There are two ways to remove the temporary internet files, through internet options or disk cleanup.

Internet Options can be found in Control Panel or in tools in Internet Explorer.
Disk Cleanup can be found by going to the Start Menu, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk Cleanup.
After doing a disk cleanup it wouldn't hurt to do a defrag on the hard drive. Disk Defragmenter can be found in the same location as Disk Cleanup.

Personally I use the free Mozilla Thunderbird and haven't had any trouble. Of course most workplaces use microsoft products and you have no choice.
