Why does my comp. load web pages really slow, it just started this 1 week ago


Make sure to run a thorough virus scan.

Slow Windows Machine! Sounds like not enough resources such as RAM and CPU. Check Performance in Task-Manager (CTRL-ALT-DELETE). High CPU levels causes hang ups like freezing. Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate. Consider increasing RAM. Uninstall any extras like those pushy toolbars, and add-ons.

Computer keeps freezing


If you havent installed any software lately or made any changes to the software/hardware, most likely the "slowness"is coming from a potential virus. Try running a virus scan if you haven't already or taking it to a staples or somewhere that offers free tune ups.

It freezes many times a day and i have to shut it down manually every time


Don't open too many programs at once because they can slow down your computer, especially if your laptop is already aging. You might also want to scan your computer for viruses coz they are common causes of computer slowdowns.

Having trouble reading discs. Game will start up sometimes but will freeze up 5 minutes into game. Seems to read and play DVD's but not games. Not sure if I need a new eye? I already fully restored...


First of all you should scan your Windows registry which is the root cause of computer freezing. you have to repair your registry using reliable registry cleaner and PC optimizing tool. When there is error in registry then its data is disorganized. And this data is not in good condition to run games at an acceptable speed. PC optimization tools use defrag technology which is helpful to fix computer freezing

It is taking 15 to 20 minutes just to pull up internet explorer, computer is very slow. I have deleted a lot of unused files and ran a Norton 360 scan and it is still very slow. The Model is ELI300G


Start in safe mode with networking (hit F8 repeatedly after the boot splash screen), Open Internet Explorer, go to TrendMicro.com and run their free virus scan.

Emachine running SLOW and Freezes - 1 year old


Here are some suggestions: First of all . Do you have an anti virus installed on your husband's machine ? Viruses can slow the machine and even kill it permanently ( so be careful) . Just install an anti virus and you'll solve the problem . If you are already have an anti virus , then just run a full system scan and watch what will happen and follow the recommended steps that will be given by the anti virus [ There are a lot of anti virus softwares in the market ] but if you suspect that your system is already infected i recommend you to use (Avast professional edition) because it can make a boot scan , that means after you install it , it will ask you if you want to make a boot scan , just agree with it and it will reboot the system and start a boot time scanning , meanwhile you should watch it and give it the right orders if it detected a virus infection . Here is another suggestion : There is a certain software you could install it . This software can help your machine and detect any problem on your husband's computer but viruses . this software is called (TuneUp utilities) . You can download it from here www.tune-up.com . just try it and you'll be satisfied with result . if that didn't help just contact me again and i'll help you as possible as i can .
good luck .

Dell DIM. 3000 PC very slow & freezes up at times.


There are several reasons for a slow computer:
  1. Processor speed
  2. Memory size
  3. Too many program running
If your computer used to run fine, then it could be that there is too much running now for it to handle, in which case either a cleanup or upgrade (or both) is in order. Based on the specs from the CNET website, the Dimension 3000 comes with a Celeron D 2.4 GHz processor and 256MB of RAM (Memory).

If this is the case, then your memory needs to be upgraded at the very minimum. Anything less than 1 GB (1024 MB) just doesn't cut it anymore.

I would also HIGHLY suggest looking at the programs you have running in the system tray (bottom right corner of the screen) to see how many programs you have running, you might check to see if all of those are necessary.

Repeated freeze in Vista


Press F12 when the DELL logo appears during boot and select Diagnostics from the menu. When the initial memory tests are complete select Express Test and document any errors reported and call DELL with the results.
