Question about Computers & Internet
My hard disk access has become terribly slow and hence all applications run very very slow. I verified and ensured that it is indeed a hard disk access problem since the CPU and memory usage were not much. The hard disk LED blinks continuously. I also lost a couple of files' contents. When this happened, I immediately stopped using that laptop and switched to another one. It seems to me to be a hardware issue but I wanted to confirm before I take it to the service center.
Often times, when a PC has be used for a long period of time, information becomes fragmented on the disk, causing read errors and various problems similar to what your experiencing.
To rectify this issue:
Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > "Disk Defragmenter"
I would also suggest using a free tool called Ccleaner. This is a wonderful maintenance tool.
Please visit this site for the download:
This utility coupled with a defrag should solve your issue.
Please let us know if you have any more issues, as it may be related to Malware.

Hi, there: there are a number of reasons causing your Sony Vaio laptop or
desktop PC running slow or freezing. Common ones include lack of free
disk space, registry corruption or redundancy, overload startup
programs, virus attack, fragmented hard drive etc.
There are manual ways to get all those issues fixed but it costs time and energy, and most importantly it needs technical skills. So I'll recommend a quick yet easy speed up solution, as you can see here: http://www.sonyvaioslow.com/
