Start running a thorough virus scan.
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.
any extras like those pushy toolbars, and add-ons.
This could be due to many things--much more that a simple answer here can give you. I'll list some of them: 1) malware on the system 2) insufficient memory 3) hard drive too full 4) hard drive not having been defragmented 5) programs running in the background that are not releasing memroy when done running
Try downloading and installing a different web browser. I have found that if using Internet Explorer Facebook games run a lot slower. Google Chrome seems to work really well for Facebook games. Below is the link for Chrome. You will have to download, then install using the prompt.
here is a quick fix download malwarebytes from downloads.com install do a full system scan let it complete follow the instructions go to quarantee and remove them(oh by the way its free download),Next you might want to check the amount of memory installed if you have room for more get it.
Whenever I have a customer tell me their printer seems to be running slower, 9 times out of 10 its what they're trying to print...not the printer. Heres a couple of things to do and ask yourself. First I'd do a test print from the printer itself. Does it kick it right out? Then go to the printer folder on the computer, right click on the printer, go to properties..click print test page. Does that come out pretty quick? Okay if they seem relatively fast then its beginning to look like something other than the printer. Try printing the job that seems to run slow. Then try printing from a different program. Is there a difference in speed? The job that prints slow may have graphics or require more memory then it use to. Perhaps you changed the graphics content on the page and the printerr is taking more time to process it. Adding more memory to the printer can help that.
Did you make any software change to the printer about the same time you noticed the slow down?
Have you changed the font color in the computer to something other than black for that particular print job? I've seen monochrome (black and white) laser printers slow down because its trying to convert the job to say violet or some other color. Its a black text printer and apparently printing color confuses it ..lol My bet is..if you really sit down and think back...something changed in the content of what your printing thats taking it longer to process it. Hope this helps!
Try clearing your cache and your cookies. If your PC has been up for a while, try restarting it. Facebook runs a lot of scripts that you don't see which can make the pages load slowly. When I use the Safari browser, taskmgr show 100% when I go to facebook, Firefox runs better for me.
it really depends on how far you are from your Router. The farther you go, the weaker the signal gets resulting in slower speeds. Slower speeds will not affect web page load times (they are tiny parts of data) but will definately affect download speeds. You need to be as close to the router as possible or get perfect range. You can put the router at higher elevation in the room to get a better range to start with. Let me know if this works for you.
