Question about Computers & Internet
Loading internet pages too slow. Poor, need free fix
No you don't. Those free programs often cause more damage than they fix. Just do the following.
(a) Run Disk Cleanup in Accessories->System Tools. Don't go crazy looking for files to delete unless you know what they are.
(b) Defragment your hard drive. That's something I'd download a third-party program for like Auslogics Disk Defrag or Defraggler because the Windows Defragmenter takes an absurd amount of time to run.
(c) Turn off some of the programs that load at Boot Time. For some silly reason, these netbooks boot with a bunch of programs you just don't need. Antivirus and hardware-related programs stay. Instant Messenger programs, Skype, webcam software, other stuff that doesn't need to run in the background, turn off. (Make sure you only have one antivirus installed because they will conflict with each other!)
(d) Remember, you're running a netbook with an older Atom processor. They just aren't fast.
(e) If you have some technical skills and don't mind spending money, you could consider putting a solid-state drive in to replace the mechanical hard drive it came with. That'll speed it up quite a bit. Don't try it though unless you're comfortable with disassembling your netbook, swapping out a hard drive, and you have the capability to clone your old drive to the new one.
(f) Lastly, try running a complete virus scan on it. Malware can slow down a PC quite seriously.
Post back how it goes! I posted this twice because you posted your problem twice :)
