If you can back up the data some place, try running the Windows CD. You could format the computer and get rid of all the unwanted stuff in your PC.
Hope this helps
Thanks

Requirments working too slow


You may need to do some "housecleaning". You probably have to many running processes. There are many Freeware programs to use to clean up and disable all unnecessary programs. All programs that start with windows will slow down the Laptop. Most are unnecessary and should be Shut down until needed. Two freeware programs to help are , 1, CCLEANER: http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ This will remove the junk, use cleaner and registry, configure, scan, delete. In the TOOLS section , select STARTUP, disable ALL unnecessary Startup programs to speed up starts and running, the more that's running in background the slower your machine will be. Your specs are minimal at best, you need to "lighten the load" on the processor and the memory. Uninstall ALL unnecessary programs, junkware, toolbars, extensions, etc. on your web browsers. 2, MALWAREBYTES: http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ This freeware programs will remove any malware, and other nasties. In the install, UNCHECK the Trial Pro version, you want the freeware version, run a FULL scan, delete ALL results, reboot. Here are more tips to speed up Windows 7: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/10things/10-ways-to-speed-up-windows-7/3332 Usually the machine slows due to the owner's input and the owner can speed it up doing some routine maintenance.

What do I need to do to speed up my Dell E1505 Laptop, it's running slow


A slow Dell laptop can be caused by many many reasons such as outdated hardware, overload start up programs, corrupt registry issues, too many junks, virus attack, poor security software taking too much system resources, remnants of uninstalled applications etc. The fact is, you should keep some system maintenance job regularly. If you don't want to do the job manually, try the Dell speed up solution available here: http://www.speedupslowdell.com/ best regards!

I have low memory and my laptop is slow


Toshiba laptops are not intrinsically slow computers and more often than not a slow computer is caused by a software rather than a hardware problem. Computers get bogged down by running too many processes at once, having the information in the hard drive stored in different parts of the disk (fragmented) and computer virus, worm or spy ware infestations. Of course, sometimes a computer simply doesn't have the hardware to run certain programs or will have a hardware issue that needs to be fixed.

Disk Cleanup

1.Click "Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/Disk Cleanup" to open the Disk Cleanup program.

2.Select the hard drive that you want to clean up if you have more than one hard drive and then click "Ok" to get started.

3.Wait for the Disk Cleanup tool to calculate how much space it will be able to save by compressing your files. Compressing the files in your hard drive will open up space that in turn helps your computer access information faster.

4.Click the "More Options" tab on the "Disk Cleanup" window that appears and then click the "Clean Up" button within the "Windows Components" section. This will allow you to select what Windows Components you want to disable. Disabling Windows Components will make your computer software by diminishing the programs that are running.

5.Click the "Clean Up" button within the "Installed Programs" section. This will allow you to select what computer programs you no longer wish to have installed on your computer and uninstall them. Uninstall programs that have not been used in a long time such as old video games to speed up your Toshiba laptop.

6.Click the "Clean Up" button with the "System Restore" section. This will delete all but the most recent of your backup files so that you don't have useless backup files taking up space and slowing down your laptop computer.

7.Click the "Disk Cleanup" tab and then select all the files from the "Files to Delete" section that you want to delete. This will delete all those files from your computer making your computer faster by freeing up memory space. Click "Ok" to delete the files and exit Disk Cleanup.

Fan

1.Blow pressurized air from a pressurized air can into the Fan slits on the bottom and side of the Toshiba laptop to clear it of dust. A dusty, dirty fan will cause speed issues on your Toshiba laptop.

2.Power off the computer, remove the battery and all external devices and then unscrew all the screws that have a keyboard picture on it.

3.Remove the keyboard from your Toshiba laptop and on the inner, upper, left hand corner, on the side of the monitor, you'll see the fan.

4.Blow pressurized air into the fan to clear the dust and then replace the keyboard, screws, battery, external devices and power the computer back on.

Processes

1.Press the "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete" keys on your Toshiba laptop keyboard simultaneously and then select "Start Task Manager."

2.Click the "Processes" tab and take inventory of all the processes running on your computer.

3.Right-click on each process with your Username to the right of the process name and then select "End Process." Do not end processes that are vital to your computer running properly such as explore.exe or processes that don't have your username to the right of the process name.

4.Restart your computer if you end a vital process.

My laptop is sort of running slower and I wondered if it was because my space is almost full on my laptop? And I also wanted to know if I can do anything to make it go back to normal. One other thing is...


First of all, simply delete your browsing history and cookies. Websites will sometimes download cookies or copies of their pages to your hard drive for faster loading later. The unfortunate thing is that this can slow down your pc. Using your browser, delete your browsing history, cookies, and all offline content.


If your computer takes a long time to boot up, take note of how many programs you have loading on start up. Pay attention to the bottom right of your screen and watch the icons. Having a large amount of programs loading on start up will make your boot times considerably slower. Open these programs and tell them not to start on start-up, or simply delete them if you don't use them.


Sometimes spyware or other malware will be downloaded to your computer and can adversly affect performance. I suggest downloading a spyware deleting program like Lavasoft's AdAware. It is free and reliable. When you use it, make sure that you update the definitions each time to make sure you search for the newest spyware. Try running the tests at least once a week.

Runing slow, some time not responsive.


Below are some useful tips for making your PC's performance better.Please follow the below steps and fix your problem.
Eliminate Viruses and Spyware 1 . Run your antivirus program. There may be something slowing your computer that you can remove. It is a good idea to run your antivirus program every week.
2 . Remove spyware. Run a good spyware tool at least twice a month.
3 . Use a pop-up blocker, if you have one. Check your antivirus program.
Dispose of the Extras 1 . Delete your document files for anything you no longer need. Saved pictures, audio and video files in particular can slow your computer.
2 . Remove unwanted programs from the Control Panel area. Old toolbars or games the kids downloaded off the Internet are a good place to start.Look for software you no longer use, such as the old printer you threw out last year.
3 . Clean out your email. Old messages are a constant drain on your computer's resources. Go through every folder, deleting everything you do not need. Leave no mail! Finish by emptying the Deleted Items folder.
4 . Turn off unnecessary programs. Check your task bar for icons that show running programs. Disable anything you are not currently using.
Run Maintenance 1 . Run the Disk Cleanup tool located in your Control Panel. (Windows only. For other operating systems, please check the Resources section below.)This will remove temporary files, cookies and unnecessary components to speed up your computer.
2 . Defragment your computer. Defragging takes some time, but will speed your computer significantly. You can find the tool in your Control Panel.Run it monthly.

Hope the above information will be helpful to you. Thanks for using Fixya.

Slow running machine


It might be caused by spyware running in the background. Download, install and scan your hard drive with this. Spybot

http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/

If it doesn't find anything then go to Start, Programs, and Startup. See if there is anything that you don't need to start up every time. If you find something there that you don't need then delete it from that folder and it won't start.

The next suggestion should only be done if you are comfortable with using Regedit.

Go to Start, Run and type Regedit

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun
and check in there for programs that are not needed to start everyday. Please don't delete any keys that you are unsure about.

My laptop is slow runnin the green light is workin overtime and i havs norton security on it but its still runnin slow plz help


There are MANY things yo ucan do to improve the speed of your laptop. For starters, get rid of Norton. That is a notoriously slow AV program. Instead, try something leaner, such as AVG free. It won't hog as many resouces and, well, it's free.

Then, try these two programs to remove unnecessary programs (bloatware) and files. If ever prompted to backup something, do it just in case. Both of these are free as well.

http://www.pcdecrapifier.com/download

http://www.ccleaner.com/download

Then, go to Start | Run and type 'msconfig' without the quotes and hit enter. Select the Startup tab and deselect any and all startup options that are not necessary. All of these things run when your computer is booted, so disabling them will speed it up for sure. If yo uare not sure whether or not somethign should be disabled, Google it. Even if you disable something, and things don't look right, you can always re-enable it.

Finally, the best thing you can do to speed up your PC is increase the RAM. Nowadays, less than 2GB of RAM won't handle very much. You can purchase this offline if you know what you need, or take your PC to your local computer parts store and ask for the necessary RAM.

Hope this helps.

Reformatting an Acer Travelmate 2310


Enter the first recovery cd, and choose the option to format the hard drive and install a fresh copy of windows. Then enter the second recovery cd when it asks. It should have an option of formatting the drive when you put in the recovery cds. There is not that much that can go wrong, since you want to delete everything anyway. Hope that helps :).
