Question about Samsung Computers & Internet
Have win 7 32/64 and six gig of memory. Keep system maintained. Use Norton utilities, spy bot, Norton 360. I scan frequently. performed defrag and registry defrag frequently. Have reformatted hard drive 3 months ago. It did not seem to help much. System has started to run slower over time. Do not have a bunch of programs loaded at start up.
Well it could be a series of things. How old is your system? What kind of system is it? For me I have an old HP a6212 Desktop and I later installed Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, with 4 gb of ram. When my system slows down the first thing I do is a registry sweep, followed by a disk cleanup. After that I always clean up my desktop(that always seems to help).
Another thing you might do is run a memory test on your computer to make sure that none of your ram cards are bad. The steps are as followed
Step 1: Open the Start Menu and type in mdsched.exe, then press enter.
Step 2. A pop-up will appear on your screen, asking how you'd like to go about checking the memory. The first option will restart your machine and check the memory right now, and the second option checks the next time you choose to reboot. Pick the option that best suits your needs.
Step 3: Your computer will load a screen that shows the progress of the check and number of passes it will run on the memory. Watch the memory diagnostic tool for errors. If there are no errors, then it's likely that your RAM is not causing any issues.
During the summer I had installed some new DDR2 ram in my tower and my tower was really lagging for some reason. I later did a google search for possible clues as to why and found out about the diagnostic tool and come to find out the dealer sold me bad ram. After popping the old ram cards back in my system worked fine.
Try both of these suggestions and let me know if it helps, if not I'll see if I can find other options. If this doesn't help I may need a little more information on your system.

You can run a Linux boot up CD scanning utility that checks the percentage of errors actually occuring.. Especially memory errors.
Malware is a big problem.. I have recently discovered that Spybots "Deep Rootkit" scan can unearth rogue malware that has been making my old XP laptops run slow for years... Now Idling with LESS than 30 running processes !
