Do this and it will do faster, basicaly it disables programes that run in the background and only leave you to work with the important stuff like internet ect..ready?

1. click on start "right bottom side of the screen"
2. click on RUN
3. type msconfig "without the word type and the number 3"
4. now you'll get a window called system configuration
5. go to the page called start ups
6. click on disable all, and click ok after and restart pc.

now you're super fast,

How can I delete more than 90,000 unread messages that slow down my computer?


Hi. You could log out of that email account and create a new one.

You could also create a new account in Windows(?) and log on to that when you power on.

CCleaner is free and will help with other rubbish you've accumulated on there, it practically runs itself.

There are many ways to optimise your PC for free if you look on Google.

Another good program if your browser is slow is ADWcleaner

Hope these help.

IMac12,1; How to clean it manually.


Hi
You may try to install AdBlock for your browser. It is different versions for each browser so you need to check. Try a Google serach for AdBlock ;-) To clear the cache, it is again slightly different between browsers. Try going to the browsers help-pages.

As for slow mac, try the following:
1 turn off your computer.
2 press start - and as soon as you hear the startup sound, press AND HOLD, the shift key (the one for making capital letters). Keep on pressing it until you get a log-in screen. (this may take a little time) and you will see a message saying "safe boot".
3 type your password and log on
4 find "Disc Tools" in your Utilities folder.(>username >applications >utilities >Disc Tool)
5 Double click on disc tool.
6 Once it is up and running click once on your hard disk icon (inside the software) to select it (located on the left hand side of the dialogue window)
7 then click "Repair disc permissions" (this may take a while)
8 restart your computer
Hopefully it is now feeling better
:-)

HI, MY DAUGHTER WAS LOOKING UP HER EBAY AND SHE MUST NOT HAVE LOG OUT , NOW I CANT PAY FOR MY ITEM, I AM NOT VERY GOOD I AM SLOW .


Hi,

If your daughter was logged into ebay on her account you will need to log off and then log in with your account. The log off button is near the top center of the Ebay account page.

If this doesn't help, please provide some more details on the problem and I will respond back and help you further.

Regards,

I am just using my computer and suddenly the mouse just freezes and doesnt unfreeze unless i log off or restart


hi,

The issue was possibly related to virus issue, not only the mouse freezes, the delay in keystroke and the application access also will be slow.

scan the machine in safe mode by pressing F8 if your operating systems is XP, with good antivirus.
