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 :)

Slow internet browsing


Do you have a good, up-to-date, antivirus program? A virus can take over your machine and send out spam emails, apparently slowing your connection in the process.

Go to AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition to download the free version of AVG.

Internet connects but when you click on the internet it says problom loading page


This can be a variety of issues, from a poor internet connection to a virus infection.

The easiest, and usually first step is to reset your browser to manufacturer defaults. For Internet explorer this can be done by clicking:

Tools > Internet Options > Advanced > "Restore Defaults"

This may or may not help. Beyond this one would need to access CMD to run a few more commands to test;

Wireless connection slow


Same problem. RESOLVED it by going to device manager (hold the Windows Logo key near the space bar and hit PAUSE) Click hardware tab, and then device manager. click the plus next to network adapters to expand it, then right click the atheros wireless connection and go to properties. Click advanced, then find the power save mode. click it, then chose turn off on the right.

did this and my wireless is working normal again. hope this helps.
