My windows vista laptop is running slow

The question is whether Vista is slow or the Internet. Vista needs to be cleaned if you do not have a good cleaning software program I advise this one for simply cleaning of files that are no longer needed left over installations etc, and it cleans the registry and allows you to see startup programs and other things that prevent computer slow downs. Be sure to also if you decide not to download the free cleaner program that you go to start-run-then type in msconfig and select any programs in the startup other than antivirus and click on disable for now. If when you restart your computer does fine then go ahead and repeat the process and select delete this time, this will increase performance considerably. Click Here to download ccleaner it is free. Thanks for using FixYa! please post a comment if this assisted you in any way. Also gather all of your files personal you want to keep and save them to disk or a USB stick or an external source. This will free up the hard disk.
Now in relations of the router since this is question is applied to the router section. Unplug the router and turn of the computer. Wait about 25 to thirty seconds restart them both. The Internet connection is determined by your service and has nothing to do with being slow unless your computer is bogged down or does not have enough memory or a good graphics card as well. Upgrade these and check hard drive space delete unwanted programs also. One other suggestion is to upgrade to Win 7 Vista is quirky to say the least. If you do not have the memory or other resources to run Win 7 I would consider Win XP even know they are closing out their updates it is less draining on your computers resources.

My vista used to do document flip with the cool animation of visibly cycling through all the open pages on my desk top, now for some reason it has become just a list, i've recently installed regtool, and...

Ok I had the same problem and I found the fix, well at least for me. Right click on your desktop and click on personalize, then window color and appearance. Now make sure that you are set to use "windows vista aero" not windows vista basic. Once I did that it fixed the document flip. Hope this helps

Windows vista

Windows Vista is the new operative system distributed from Microsoft, following the previous release of Windows XP.

An operative system is the interface between the user (you ) and the computer, that allows you to manage computer hardware resources and peripheral, and manage processes (software) running on your computer.

From the user point of view The operative syste is the environment where you run applications, manage connected devices, storing files and starting and stopping programs.

Vista is the latest OS released from Microsoft. It has a powerful interface, but it can be slow running on old computers. On vista you can also have some compatibility problem when you try to install old devices built for XP, such as printers, scanners etc.
