Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Computer very very slow

Moving from web page to web page, opening & closing files, downloading files, etc. Sometimes it takes as long as 5+ minutes to download, or move from web page to web page. We've purchased Comcast Highspeed internet hoping this would resolve the problem (used 56k dial up before). We dumped our cookies, and temp internet files but it's still very slow. Our PC is a Compaq Presario (S4020WM)

This problem is probably because your system is infected with spyware,adware or some kind of malware..

, as a tip De-fragment your hard drives time to time.if virus has hit your computer try installing a fresh copy of windows and then installing Anti-virus .let me remind you when you install a copy of windows do not attempt to open any drive cause there are auto-run viruses. so you first clean your computer then go to other drives clean and safe.

Do comment if it helped you in ANY MANNER !

I can get on farmville site but it will not allow me to open my farm. It stays on the farmville home page with still farms. I am able to send gifts but not visit my farm or any other farm that I am friends...


sometimes it is very slow to open - watch the bar at the bottom where it says loading below the main farmville logo and when it finished - then your farm will appear - sometimes it takes 2-3 minutes if the servers are busy or you are on a slow connection
