My brother Se 400 which is only a few months old just started running really slow. When I disconnect the foot petal and do the manual botton "the arrow button" it still runs slow. I don't...


have you checked to make sure the power cord is pushed in correctly?
if the power cord isn't the problem then it may need to be checked by a service tech, because it's not suppose to be running slow just a few months after you bought it.
I would call the people you bought it from & tell them what it's doing & see if they'll give you another one, I've been sewing for 30+ years & I wouldn't keep the machine.
good luck

I would check to make sure you don't have viruses or anything of that sort. I recommend trying any one of these (free) programs (but don't use them all, as you'll have issues between them):http://free.avg.com/us-en/homepage - AVG is a pretty solid company and has been around for a while
http://www.avast.com/en-us/index - Avast! is one of my personal favorites.

Run their security suites and see if it picks up anything. If you've got viruses then there's more to it than these will be able to help and you may need to talk to a specialist. Chat me back and I can help you more with that.
Hope this helps, and don't forget to rate me.Thanks.

I have windows XP. What do I really have to have in the remove and install hardware screen to be able to safely run my computer. It is so slow and I have highspeed DSL?


You need everything in the hardware section, you can how ever go into the program section and remove any program that you do not need. you may also just need the computer cleaned up and checked for viruses.

Computer is very slow I had a bad virus so then replaced hard drive with a new one but pc is still slow


Computer slow downs are possible at all times. The only thing required is that the problem should be found and fixed at the right time.
You can scan your computer for errors here

I paid online sept.7/09 keeping telling me my supcription has expired. gave me a temp.password to access my acct. dont work either,terrible service will get another anti virus


Norton is a very difficult software as well as a Hog... it can slow down your system anyway.
AVG is a Leader Globally... they have a Free Version and a Paid Version. The Paid Version is nice... you get a firewall and a web browser protection package.
If you are keeping you system updated and you maitenance regularly the free version will work. If you have several people on the system... kids primarily... I would purchase the full package.

A few months ago was the peak of Windows Virus Season, so it's likely you picked up one or more. I have seen viruses this season that denied your browsers to access the interned though some of the computer's resources still had access.

Run a full virus scan in safe mode with your up to date Anti-Virus program. If you don't have Anti-Virus and a running Fire Wall, I suggest you do after you format and do a clean install of Windows.

Good luck.

Slow


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!

Does it feel like it's running hot? If so, check that the cooling vents are clean and that the fan is running. A second thought is that you may have some mal-ware that you've picked up off of the internet. I fought a similar problem on an IBM T41 for several weeks. Look up and download a copy of Ad-Aware SE (it's free!) I wouldn't have a computer without it installed. Picks up all kinds of crap that Norton never even sees. Same to be said about AVG, and that's free, too.
If this tips don't solve your issue, get back to me and we'll pick up from here.
