Move your My Documents folder to D along with any other stuff you want to move except programs that is! then make a short cut to the moved folder. Windows will remember where the files are once you have directed it.

Get rid viruses


Hey Camry, if you believe your computer is running slow due to viruses then run an antivirus program. I recommend AVG AntiVirus (it's also free). Before you download it make sure you uninstall other antivirus programs on your computer if you have any. More than one can really mess with your computer. Once you download it, scan your computer. Then scan for malware (most likely you have malware and not virus). Download Spybot or malwarebytes (this should not interfere with AVG) and scan for malware. Then just restart your computer and hopefully it goes a little bit faster. I say little bit because usually there more problems than just malware issues. Such as not enough space on you hard drive. Delete things you do not NEED. Freeing up space can really improve the speed of your computer. Also, if your computer is getting hot (if you feel it or you hear your fan running full speed) I suggest you get a laptop fan. My laptop has no virus or malware and only has half of the memory used and is 5 years old (Dell latitude) but when it gets hot (my average temp for dual core: 75 degrees C). This really slows down my computer. You can download programs that will tell you the temp of your laptop. Also make sure you shut your laptop down once in a while to clear the RAM.
Sorry it is so lengthy but there is so much that one can do to make the laptop go faster. I hope this helps you though, if it does not give me your feedback. Good luck. - Joe.

your System may be slow due to following reason

- Missing Windows updates or outdated drivers

- Left over programs, old cached and temporary files
So Follow these steps to fix computer problem::
- Delete all the temp files
- Remove unused programs
- install latest drivers from the manufacturer site

Latitude c640 getting super slow and freezing, used for years for the same things worked fine, What changed to make it slow now? How can I fix it? I've had it in for repairs last year, slower after that.Is...


first--what O/S do you have?
Windows XP should have at least 1GB of RAM to run well. 2GB is much better.
What is running in the background?
From Start run the MSCONFIG command and check the startup tab. Uncheck programs you don't need starting up. You can actually uncheck everything but your antivirus software.
Run scandisk (check your hard drive for errors) then defrag it.
How much free space is on the hard drive? If you are working with less than 25% free space, your hard drive will slow down.

Startup slowness with latitude 610


sounds like to much information is being run on startup. Go into to startup and disable what you don't want to run, suggestion only run whats necessary for start up. If its not that , ya might need a memory upgrade(ram).

I can't download a world of warcraft game cause it says not


Go to control panel, add/remove programs and remove all programs that you do not use, such as free trials, etc. Once you have removed them, reboot computer and you should be good to go. You need to free up space on your hard drive to install additional software and this is the easiest way to do it. You can see how much space is on your hard drive by going to my computer and right clicking on C: and then choosing properties. The picture will tell you how much space is being used. If you have allot of music on your computer, you can burn them to CD and then delete from computer as these hog allot of space on computer.

Thats means you do not have enough available space on your hard drive to install the graphics program. You need to go into your games saves, music, or vids and delete the ones that you feel you don't need anymore. I hope this helps. Thanks!

Slow starting Dell Inspiron 2650


The first thing I would look at is hard drive free space. Almost universally, critically slow systems have a hard drive with no free space. What most people don't seem to understand is that Windows requires a minimum of 10% of the hard drive to be free space to allow the operating system room for swap files and other temporary files needed to run the OS efficiently. This can be made worst by the fact that Windows only reports the size of a file on the hard drive, not the amount of space actually allotted to the file (This has to do with cluster size and the fact that only one file is written to any part of a cluster and in this case it is small files that waste a lot of space)

Things you can do.

1. Run disk cleanup, and get rid all temporary files.
2. If you use an email client like Outlook/Outlook express, delete unwanted emails, then empty the deleted items folder.
3. Open Internet Explorer, Tools, Internet Options, delete all cookies and temporaty internet files.
4. Go to add/remove programs in control panel, uninstall any programs or applications you do not use.
5. If you have a large amount of pictures or music files on the system, burn them to CDs or DVDs and free up that space.
6. Go to System Properties, Advanced Tab, performance section, settings button, select Adjust for Best Performance, Click Apply, Click Advanced TAB, Virtual Memory, Change Button, Select System Managed Size, Click Apply close then reboot.
7. Go to MY Computer, right click C:, Click Properties, Tools Tab, Defragment the Hard Drive
8. Adjust power management to Maximum perofrmance.

Lost a lot of disk space


You may have to defragment the disc, if you have not done this before.
Your computer can build up junk files from browsing the internet and doing graphics, etc on your computer.
There are allot of free down loadable software programs out there.
One trusted site is www.download.com
If you type in a search for freeware or opensource utility programs, you will see many websites that offer free drive cleaner programs.
Then just follow the instructions in the program after downloading.
