Do I need Microsoft NETfor a home Pc running XP?

That is a good question and the answer of course is "it depends".
Generally, your computer will work perfectly fine without .net framework installed.

But many applications (, ATI video) and more and more web sites are using .net, so you might experience issues if you don't have it installed.

Microsoft's Silverlight also depends on it. (Silverlight is a browser based component that was developed as an opponent for Flash animations, interactivity, and other web effects.)

It is a platform often used by developers for small programs (Goggle Voice Notifier comes to mind)

You can find more information on .net can here.

So - you don't really need it, but your web browsing might be impacted and some application require it.

My dell pc wont load or download and runs really slowly.

if you cannot run any antivirus from a usb flash or cd, format the hard disk (if no data needed) and reinstall operating system.
this is a virus sign as you describe it.

sir better to contact your ISP provider or internet provider about this. Sometimes heavily load on their connection will slow the speed of the internet. i experienced that myself.

My laptop is goin really slow and i dont know why. i downloaded my favorite game world of warcarft and it was fine but now everthing on my laptop including world of warcarft is goin realy slow please help...

Did you install many more things after you downloaded the game and before the game had gotten slow?
Sometimes games take a tremendous amount of resources from the computer, and anything else that can be running in the background such as anti-virus software can really bog the system down. If you game crashes to the desktop, this can be a sign that other programs are running and taking up to much of your resources. If you game plays fine, and then slows down after a few hours, and only a reboot will speed it up, than this can be a lack of RAM. I would suggest that you start by turning down the frame rates, and details on the game and see if this helps. Generally, games have the options to do this from the main menu. If this doesn't work, I would suggest that you turn programs off that aren't needing to continually run on the computer.

Good morning. Quite a number of things can cause your computer to run slow. Usually, it's due to the data on your disk being too fragmented or due to a virus or spyware problem. Also, if you have your hard drive too full (80%) or more, it can really slow things down. Do a disk cleanup, then a defrag and see if that helps. If not, go out on the net and download some of the free antivirus programs and run them. They seem to run as good, or better, than most of the paid packages that I've seen. AVG is good as is SpyBot and AdAware. I run all three on a regular basis and have few virus/spyware problems. If those things don't take care of the problem, get back to us for some more ideas.
Best of luck and Have a good day!

Laptop is running slow

Hello khrisvalerio,

There are many reasons why a laptop could be running slow, usually its a lot of junk that has accumulated over time, fragmented HD, HD errors, viruses, etc.

The first thing to do is to empty all the contents of the TEMP folder. One way to do this is to open Internet Explorer, Click on Tools > Internet Options > General Tab > Under Browsing History, click the delete button.

Next, you can click on My Computer icon in desktop, right click over C: drive and in the General tab, click on the Disk Cleanup button. After this, go to the Tools tab and under Error Checking, click the Check Now button. Once that is done, go to the section below, which is Defragmentation and click that button. This may take a while, depending upon the size of your hard disk.

I would also recommend you do a full virus scan with your AntiVirus software with the latest updates. All this should help you get the PC going faster.

There are two tools available on the net, which I would really recommend:
1. RegistryBooster 2
2. SpeedUpMyPC 3

Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here. Please do not assign a rating until you feel your problem is resolved. I will try my best to help you further if need be.

If you are satisfied with my solution or have no other questions, please close the problem by assigning a FIXYA rating for my solution. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!
