A slow computer could becaused by a number of things -1.InsufficientRAM memory - if your computer has less than 512Mb of RAM then increase it to atleast 1Gb of RAM.2.Registryproblems - clean and repair the registry, it will contain unused registry keys.Use programs such as Registry Mechanic, Microsoft RegClean etc.3.Uninstall/removeunused programs, this will also free up hard disk space.4.Notenough hard disk space - swap file space may need to be increased if Windows hasn'tbeen configured to manage it.5.Installlatest Windows updates.6.Updatevirus definition files and scan computer for viruses, Trojans, malware etc.7.Clearthe Internet cache for faster browsing.8.Harddisk maintenance is required at least once a month to keep it functioningefficiently.Runthe following programs - Disk Cleanup -removes temporary files that are no longer used and to recovers hard diskspace.DiskDefragmenter to make fragmented files into contiguous files and thereforethe hard disk access is faster.
Answering this question is kind of tricky. Browser speed can be impacted by many different things. I have a laptop that uses Windows 7 with IE 9 and it browses extremely fast - but you have to consider all of the external factors that can impact browsing speed.
Here are a few things to examine and maybe your browser speed will increase:
- Have you run all of the available updates for the computer software?
- Have you run a full virus/malware scan to ensure your computer is not infected with some sort of a virus or malware that may be slowing down your browser?
- Have you deleted the temp files and reset the browser defaults. (In IE you can do this under the Tools>Internet Options area and clicking on the Delete button. Then go to the Advanced Tab and choose Reset)
- Have you run a disk defragment or disk cleanup? These programs, built into Windows XP, are under Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools.
- Have you tried a different computer on the same network you are using and compared speeds? If a "known good" computer is performing similarly on your network or your home internet connection, then it may not be the computer or the browser that is slow - but it may be the internet connection itself. Sometimes you can improve this by unplugging the power from your Internet Modem or Router for a minute or two and then plugging the power back in, and then rebooting the computer.
- Have you uninstalled extra toolbars or browser add-ins that may be clogging up the browser? You can usually remove these extra programs in the Add/Remove Programs section of Control Panel.
If you try these things and the browser speed does not increase, it may be necessary to format and re-install the operating system on your computer. It is possible for registry or file damage to have occurred that may prevent a possible fix. If this is the case - it is a long process, but a fresh start will always make things seem to perform better.
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!
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.
