Pc clean up

I already ran the disk clean up and defragmented my labtop, but could there still be useless folders in my computer? Is there a program that will track and get rid of all the useless stuff in my notrbook?

    What "useless stuff"? If your talking about programs that you don't use or need, you need to uninstall those. There are registry cleaning tools, but you want to take care when messing with your system's registry. There are clone removing tools for deleting duplicate files...

My system is running slow


Slow computer If you have a virus program installed, it is most likely is running a scan on your hard disk. It can slow down your computer especially if you have a large hard drive. After scanning is completed then the computer will be faster.
To make your computer (hard disk) lean and mean, uninstall any programs you do not use.
Also you need to maintain your hard disk by running Disk Cleanup this will remove old temp files and old compressed files etc.
This will reduce the number of files the virus scanner has to scan. Plus running Defrag. this makes your files contiguous so the system can access files off the hard drive quicker because it does not work as hard.. Disk Cleanup and Defrag should be carried out at least once a month.
If you have 512Mb of RAM installed then installing more RAM will speed up your computer. After installing your graphics card, you may need to disable the built-in graphics card in the BIOS for the new graphics card to work properly.

Pc matic and laptop problems


Hi There,
What version of windows are you running? Is this a purchased, legal copy of PC matic? Are you running this in any kind of compatability mode?

Generally programs like this - that claim to "speed up your PC" and "clean out useless clutter" Are fairly benign and useless themselves. All the tricks and tips these programs do are already available on your computer through the computer management tool as well as the "clean up disk space" tool.

Hi hrd0013...
Do some cleanup on your computer to see if it runs faster.
Do a disk clean and a disk defragment
Add more memory or a programs that "recycles" your ram like the following FREE program: http://download.cnet.com/Free-Ram-Optimizer-XP/3000-2086_4-10238479.html?tag=mncol;1

1...Disk cleanup...Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disc Clean-up
2...Disk Defragment (Hard Drive )...Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk deframenter
3...Get rid of any unused programs,files, pictures etc..
Your machine should speed up if you do the above.

uninstall & delete any unused programs. Empty the recycle bin,run disk clean-up from system tools. Defragment the drive. If that doesn't help,I'd start looking into a new hard drive.

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.

I ran my norton diagnostic test and it said my CPU was running slow. I noticed that my mouse cursor was moving slow... *sigh* what can I do for my CPU? Can I upgrade my Dell Inspiron 9300? Thank you


first i would get rid of norton. norton takes up too much resources . and also it takes too much control of your computer. do a disk clean up and a disk defrag. that will clean up ur computer .
go to start then all programs then acessories then system tools then disk clean up. if you notice disk defrag is there also. so is system restore and system information system information tells you everything about your computer. and system restore , restores your computer to an earlier date.
i hope this information was helpful.

My computer is filling up


defrag you HDD, that is one of the best simple solutions you may be able to do.

open my computer

right click on your local drive (C:)

then click properties

click tools then select disk defragment

then click on defrag now


on vista all you have to do is click on defrag now, on XP you will have to see the status first, then defrag.

on XP if the colors you see are separated, you really have to defrag, this will take at least an hour, depending on the status of your HDD.
