Boot Problem Booting my system gives me slow response and most of the time a background message that a mstake in the registry appeared - then trying to reboot... Once I can boot the machine it is very slow - cpu usage goes up to 100%, processes change fast - even if everything is disabled - and then goes down to 0 - computer freezes!!!

Here's a link that may prove useful to you. And another with specific instructions for running the repair. Before working with the registry, make sure to create a valid backup by running Erunt, available here.
I recommend you begin, however, by running chkdsk (see here and here) to check for corrupt files, then scanning for malware by following these protocols. Also do some system maintenance to improve the performance, at least the following steps. (See here.) And here's a great article that will help you to optimize the health and startup times of your system.
And finally, if you're working with an older system, it's probably time to update the drivers. Tutorial to guide you through that process here. If you're actually getting blue screens with stop error codes, let us know the exact error message and we'll help you to sort it out...
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

    One other thing that may help you to diagnose the exact cause of the reboots is the instruction on disabling the restart of system failure in this article.

Hi, My laptop taking so much time to switch on and it became very slow. Please tell me the soluiton for it.


Sometimes slow booting of computers and Laptops are caused by viruses and spywares. Also, a High temperatured Processor makes a computer slow.
Here are some solutions you might want to try.
  1. If you have a installed antivirus in your computer, i suggest you update your Antivirus and then Start scanning your computer for possible viruses and spywares.
  2. If viruses and Spywares are not the problem, maybe your Processor is feeling to much heat. I suggest you use Laptop Coolers like this one. heifentrixx_11.jpg
  3. This will help you cool down you Processor and Laptop.
Hope my solution will help. Thanks for using Fixya!

Why is my OS is very very slow working???


Here's a few tips you can try to fix your slow startup problem. First of all you want to disable any programs that are in the startup menu that you do not absolutely need. There is no sense in waiting for programs to load that you don't use on a regular basis. Or if you are not sure which one is slowing your startup. You can disable them one at a time.

If that did not help, you can disable your Windows sidebar. You'll also want to remove any icons from your desktop that you do not absolutely need. The same goes for your task bar and quick start menu. All of these will slow down your boot time.

Check to make sure your anti virus program is not scanning at startup. Some programs are set to scan. When windows boots, by default. You will also want to do a full anti virus scan to make sure you don't have a worm or any other type of virus that is working in the background slowing your operations down.

The biggest reason for a slow boot time is a corrupt or damaged Registry. The registry will become corrupted from installing and uninstalling programs. Perhaps you have loaded programs onto your new Vista computer and were not compatible and then uninstall them. They leave behind files, which Windows tries to reference on startup. Since they are no longer on your computer. Your system goes through a long search trying to find them. You need to clean and optimize your Windows registry to eliminate any bad or orphaned files.

You can do this manually if you are an experienced computer technician. It is not recommended for most users. Windows does not have a built-in tool for repairing, cleaning, or optimizing your registry. You will need to download and run a third-party registry repair program to do this.

A good piece of software that will do this for you with a click of the mouse is a wise investment for any computer. You will have it for years to come, and can schedule it to do weekly maintenance. This will keep your PC fully optimize and running fast. It's like giving your computer a tuneup.

It is too slow too when start and i cant play dvds


Dear user,


Slow start could because of too many applications included while booting, please disable the unwanted applications like skype/yahoo/gmail/msn by changing their auto load settings,

next download some disk cleaner software , normally most give the start up edit options from here you can easily remove unwanted apps.

Also your anti virus takes up time on boot specially AVG, try using some other anti virus and some antivirus may be performing background scanning thus slowing down your PC, try to disable this if possible.

My laptop running slow and net browsing very slow my configeration windows7 original ,320 gb HD,3GB memorry


There are several reason for the computer to be running slow for the start please try restarting the computer to safe mode with networking (Steps given below) and check if your browsing speed is better. If your internet browsing speed not better in safe mode with networking then you need to contact your ISP to complain about slow speed.

If it is working fine in safe mode, then some of the software (example: Antivirus / Internet Security / Firewall) is slowing down your computer. Please try removing it. Also try reducing the color scheme, use a non aero theme and see if your comptuer is working fine. If so your processor is not able to take the load of windows 7 visual effects aswell as other programs running in the background at the same time
