Re: computor very slow


If the comp is still slow, delete all the unwanted programs from Add/Remove programs in Control Panel.

Also delete all the icons tht u use from ur desktop. U can access them from All Programs.

Click Start --> Run --> msconfig --> Enter.
On the system configuration utility screen, click on start up at the top and then on the start up screen, click on disable all.
Click apply and then close the window and restart the computer.

Also if you have more than one anti virus, keep one anti virus and remove all other softwares as tht will really slow down the comp.

If nothing works then u ll have to either upgrade the memory or reinstall OS.

Hope this solution helps!!!!!!!!!

Re: computor very slow

Good morning caterer,
Well, that's a pretty general question. It could be hardware, software or virus issues that we are dealing with.
If you can give a little more detail an answer a few questions, chances are that we can find a fix for you!
Is it slow all of the time, or only during the use of certain applications?
What are you using for an anti-virus program and how often do you run it?
Do you have a mal-ware program on your system?
Have you done any housecleaning on your fixed disk? (Removal of old files, defrag, cleaned the registry and such)
If you can please answer these questions and tell what you observe while it's running, that will give us a starting place. Will be waiting to hear back from you.

Computor is slow

Many of these only came with 4 gigabytes of RAM memory. You need more with Windows 8 and 8.1. You can get another 4 gig of DDR3 Memory and put it in the open memory socket next to the 4 gig you have.

Someone suggested to me to increase the voltage. Higher voltage means more power. In your residence the only items with higher voltage are the stove and the water heater. Try powering your computer there.

Can a sansa mp3 player give a computor a virius?my room mate took all my music files off our computor,because he said when I put them on the computor from my mp3 player,that it passed a virius to the...

From Answers WiKi:- The mp3 format does not allow you to execute code. The way a virus works is it executes code which either deletes, edits, adds, or takes files from your computer. This is next to impossible without the use of at least one exe, vbs, bat, or com file.

So if you only transferred mp3 files the virus did not come from you.
