You really don't give much information to go on...could be you are full up in your RTAM, and you need more, or you need to get rid of the temporary files which have built up...hard to say without more info.

How to clean up start up processes


Questions about optimize start up:
How to remove program from start up?
My computer boots very slow? How do I clean up start up processes?
Windows startup very slow, how to fix it?

Why clean up start up processes?
Windows Startup program will load the default programs or processes you add to your computer. The test result shows a new system only boot within 30 seconds. As you install antivirus program or other applications, it becomes very slow. Sometimes, the startup gets bloated not due to your computer behaviors. Malicious software is prone to add useless processes on startup without your known. You are not aware that your computer becomes more and more slow until serious computer problem occurs. Don’t ignore a slow start up, it is the root of Blue Screen and computer freezing.

How to clean up start up processes?
The first thing you should do is to remove spyware or adware from your computer. I prefer to AVG, it is a free anti-virus program. If you want to clean virus completely, you need boot in safe mode and disconnect your Internet.

Hok is a professor with over ten year’s computer experience. He suggest us use ErrorFix. This is a pc optimize tool which can clean up system registry entries, useless program, start up processes and junk files. With this program, your computer will be obviously improved. Just a few clicks, you can remove processes that slow your computer.

What’s more to speed up your computer?
Do not download Peer-to-Peer Download Software! Maybe you are using some software such like YouTube Downloader. These are probably some of the least likely contenders for system-slowdown but they are popular on the internet. Those kinds of program can take up memory space and damage your computer. Also they can automatically add itself as your start up.

Cant get on facebook


you need to understand the problem which causes it to become slow. Once you restart, see if the hard disk light is continuously showing some activity. It is possible that you don't have enough RAM and in that case PC becomes slow as all the time hard disk keeps spinning. Open Task Manager and check which process is consuming high CPU/Memory. There is Resource Monitor in performance tab which show the processes consuming high Disk/memory/CPU. CHeck what that process is and uninstall that application or switch off that process. Keep searching based on what you find doing this.

Dell Studio 15 runs slow... My Dell studio 1558 takes long time to boot & processing is also slow,i have tried disk cleanup and defragment hard disk but nothing worked,it has the following...


Check the boot processes in the from your systems control panel and look for unnecessary boot time services. Such as an anti virus boot scan and similar processes. Sometimes it is caused by the network card driver. Start your computer in safe mode and select the selective start up option and disable each service one by one (non windows) to find out which one is slowing down your boot process. It usually due to a boot scan, a faulty driver, or an invalid or corrupt registry entry. I highly doubt that you are infected with a virus and it is due one of the issues listed above.

Dell Desktop Windows XP- slow. Desktop tab missing.


You need to find out what process is hogging up your resources and slowing down your computer. Open task manager and look for a process that is using up a lot of CPU, memory or both. Once you have found the process first google the name to see what program it belongs to and if it is legitimate or a virus.

If the process is tied to an application you can end the process and see if your computer speeds up. If this is the case you will need to do a little research to see why that application is so resource intensive.

If it is a virus you will need either use another anti-virus program to remove it or find instructions on how to do it manually.
