Dell 600m running extremely slow -- has no viruses

Hello all,

My Dell inspiron 600m is running very slow. Programs such as IE and just random browsing through the OS is painfully slow.

I have ran several disk defrags as well as constant virus scans all to no avail.

Any suggestions?

Thanks so much

Probably it has some virus that slows down the booting process.Besides that you might have many startup programs,which you can un-install if you don't need at startup.Also, cleaning your disks will be a good idea.These tips might help solve the sluggish attitude!

My Inspiron 2200 used to run fine; now it is ridiculously slow, which I think started after I updated everything after about six months our out of use. It's especially slow opening a browser and...


There a few things that slow your computer the way you described.
  1. You need memory on the hard drive that your Operating system is on. I would say 25% or more.
  2. Clear your temporary Internet,cookies and cache from you web browser (IE, FireFox, Opera, Ect)
  3. To many thing running in the background, if you are comfortable with computers (you can use "msconfig" to turn extra programs off)
  4. Defrag your hard drives
  5. As much memory as you can will always help.
I hope this helps.

If it only happens when using Hotmail, it is not your keyboard. Check your anti-virus, anti-spyware programs, could be a bottleneck.

My dell inspiron 1525 is very slow causes?


try to check running programs on the back ground, you could view that by going to the task manager.
exiting programs that you dont need will give you some spare virtual memory.
to access task manager:
press ctrl+alt+del then press task manager,

also check the loading programs upon booting the computer, check your startup and remove unnecessary programs that load upon startup.

set your computer to have the best performance

one more thing try to disable your anti virus to see if it is the cause of the slowing of performance.
