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!

Computer screen keeps freezing. How do I stop this? I use Windows Vista.


Close ALL unnessary programs. What are you doing when it freezes? Do you have a good malware program? if so run a full scan. Also download CCLEANER freeware at: http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/. This program will remove the junk fromyour machine. In the TOOLS section, STARTUP, disable ALL unnessary startup programs and UNINSTALL ALL TOOBARS , they are killers on broswers. On http://www.filehippo.com/, there are many FREEWARE programs to Tuneup a slow machine. I suggest MALWAREBYTES to remove malware from your machine it's freeware: http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ In the installation UNCHECK the TRIAL PRO version, you want the freeware version. If you need further assistance respond to this post.

Slow dragging and freezes up and has 85%memory used i want to restore factory settings


I would download and run the registry utility from iobit.com
It is freeware and works then run CHKDSK/F. If that doesn't work there is a memory utility within iobit.com that works very well.
Hope that helps.

My web camera on acer aspire 5050 will not work i tried to reinstall drivers but still having problems please help


Do you see it in device manager?
If you do, that means that the driver for it has been installed successfully,but now you need a software to run it.
I can recommend YAWCAM, it is a freeware software, and works just fine with a lot of cameras

Acer laptop


Hi, I'm not sure if that is a built-in feature of the Aspire 3000 (AS3004WLCI) but not in your Aspire 5634WLMI but I think that it is an add-on software utility. You may want to try this http://www.nonags.com/nonags/emn.html. It offers freeware E-Mail Notification software flashing scroll-lock light. Hope this works for you. Please let me know how things turn out. Regards.
