Get ccleaner

Download and install that and clear out all your temporary files.
once you have cleared out your temporary files get and use jkdefrag

Once your computer has been defragged that should speed things up some what - also go to start--> run

and type

msconfig

then click on ok or press enter and go to the startup tab and ensure that everything that is starting up is ok.

You can disable items from starting up which will help ( obviously only specific ones otherwise you may disable things you dont want to )

If you post back with a screen shot or a list of items that are starting up I should be able to help further with that.

Extremely slow running


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.

My dell is runing slow


Hi,
The most common causes of a slow PC is:
a)It has been infected with viruses and/or spyware
b)You have too many programs or apps installed on your PC which are running in the background and slowing the tasks you are busy with.

Install a good anti-virus program such as AVG free edition. You can download it for free from www.avg.com
Once downloaded run a full scan to detect viruses and spyware which may be slowing your PC down.
Also uninstall any programs which you are not using.

Best wishes,

My pc is very very very slow but what can i do?


RAM is very important to work faster. Increase RAM if it is lower.

Don't install too many programs,games etc. in driveC:\. Instead install in other drives.

Some antivirus makes pc slow.

Scan all the drives periodically. Weekly defrag all the drives.

Delete the .tmp files.

National Geographic back roads explorer 3D,will not run on my pc


Your PC isn't enough powerful to move this program, or it's wrong installed. Reinstall. If the program still refuses to work, try installing it on another newer PC. If it works, then you have a slow PC.

Why is my computer so slow to load anything ,its even slowing my internet speed, i i open limewire and try to do anything online it doesn't even wanna move.


Hello

Have your computer always been slow or is it a recent problem?

If it has always been slow, you need to install more ram. Just take your computer to your nearest computer hardware store and they should inform you on what ram you need to buy. They will do it for free.

If this slow pc is a recent problem, you might want to defrag the computer. But this could just as easy be a duplication virus, so it might also help if you update your virus protector and do a full system scan.

My best advice is however to format the computer and install a clean copy of windows.

Hope you can find this helpful.

Kind regards

No, Business Contact Manager isn't only for networked PC's, but can be used on a stand-alone system. It is a rather large database program, but will increase the number of modules running in the background when you have Outlook running. If your PC slowed to a crawl, it sounds like the only fix needed is RAM. If you have at least 2Gb of RAM, it should run fine, but will still slow Outlook. I have a 3 gigahertz CPU and 3Gb of RAM, and it slows mine noticeably, so I un-installed it. I didn't find it to be at all useful.
