In start (or windows icon) look for the run command. If you don't see it rightclick start/properties start menu/customize scroll down to the run command and check-mark it. Now start RUN type msconfig
choose the startup tab and uncheck anything that is suspicious, and or any name or manufacturer that is blank, and or any program that just isn't that important running in the background. I get a free copy of spynomore to see what trojans, worms, viruses, hijackers, and rootkits are running. If you see any either pay for the program or unhide hidden folders and delete in windows what you see in the list. Then using the run command type regedit and delete the trojans from there too. If you don't see the bad item where it says it is supposed to on a 64 bit computer look for the wow64 where there is a duplicate of the path you are looking for. Unhackme does a good job too It uses regrun. Regrun security system does the same job

How do i make my pc fster


Slow Windows Machine! Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate. Consider increasing RAM.Uninstall any extras like those pushy toolbars, and add-ons.

HP COMPAQ 6510b RUNS SOOO SLOW


My recommendation: Install XP.
Well, not that there actually something wrong, but it initially came with XP or Vista. It depends. HP puts it a XP. Check your MS Product key sticker.


It is a simply determination that the laptop just does not have a enough resources to run Win 7 effectively. How do I know, I am using an HP 2.3GHz with XP. I tried Win 7 awhile back and immediately removed it. If fact, I do clean install of XP at least once a year. I do test more software than most.


Here is my Slow Windows Machine! default fix.
  • Sounds like not enough resources such as RAM and CPU. Check Performance in Task-Manager (CTRL-ALT-DELETE).
  • Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when you initiate.


Oh yea, in your case disable AREO, and u
se a virus protection with a smaller footprint. Like MS Security Essentials. My PC just couldn't handle McAfee or the likes.

My windows xp sp2 starts very slowly which free software i have to download?


May be in your windows drive there are not enough space. please check out this how many space are free. for windows xp sp2 you need minimum 15 gb space. and the other solution is clear temporary files from your temp folder. just you can go run command then type %temp% then open a folder which contain too much temporary files. select all and delete these. and the other solution is your startup or boot run many software which slow your xp. then follow this solution. go to run and type msconfig then open a new window now go to startup tab then unmark the startup software catagory which are not necessary for you. for doing this job but if you not get any progrees then format your xp. thanks

Im using windows xp sp2 and my startup is incredibly slow. im using alienware themes and alienware dock starts on startup.other than that ive changed the startup tune to something i converted on my own....


Sounds like you are running out of ram for the program. Try upgrading to some more ram in your system. Windows xp recommends minimum 512k of memory to run.

Slow start up....windows home edition of xp


I take it you mean that it started up faster before now?

Some things that can slow it down:
1) run scandisk
2) run defrag
3) run the command msconfig from the Start>run command
Remove unnecessary programs from the startup tab. This doesn't uninstall the programs, just tells them not to start. You may have spyware and adware running.
4) run a good malware detection program and scan for viruses.
5) Install more memory. In the beginning, many companies put 512 MB RAM in the XP machines. You need at least 1 GB of RAM to run smoothly and 2GB for best performance.
