Re: slow

The main reason for this is that... You have softwares that utilizes most part of your RAM. You may uninstall the unneeded softwares. Defragment your system periodly. And clean up your temporary folder's files and window prefetch folder prefetch folder will open if you will write prefetch in start->run.

Re: slow

There are few possible reasons: 1. The drive is full and fragmeted Solution: Try deleting unwanted files and burn the bulky files to a CD/DVD disk will reduce disk load. Do a deragmentation. [right click a disk drive to see properties > defragmentation.] 2. Too much softwares installed or large number of fonts installed. Solution: Install only required number of programs and fonts. Uninstall unused programs. 3. Viruses or malware affected.Your PC may be infected with viruses or malwares Solution: In this case install a good antivirus program and perform a full system scan. Also try some powerful spyware detecters. This will help reduce risk. 4. Too much servces running in the background. Solution: To reduce the number of services starting at windows startup go to > Right click > My computer > Select manage > select servoces In this tab see all the services running with windows start up. right click any service that you don't want and change its properties to manual or disabled. you can also delete the startup progams from Start > All programs > startup just delete the programs that you do not want at start up. this could solve your problem

Microsoft Word 2003 program is slow in opening and closing docs

Is your disk-drive getting "close" to being full?
That could cause "slow" file-opening and file-saving actions.

Or, find your original Microsoft CD-ROM for the software, and the matching 25-character license-key.

Then, use Add/Remove Programs to "uninstall" MS Word.

Restart your computer, and reinstall the software, using the CD-ROM and the license-key.

Access "Microsoft Update" to get all the latest fixes & security-patches for MS Word.

System running very slow, programs not responding including anti virus which is not performing virus scan.

- Open Task Manager (Ctrl-Shift-Esc).
- Open Processes Tab.
- Make the column "CPU Time" shown (somewhere in menu).

You will see, which process eat the performance.

If Task Manager doesn't start, it must be a quite clever virus. Try
