Hey here are somethings you need to do.

1) Open internet explorer -> Tools-> Internet options ->General -> Browsing History -> Delete -> Check all boxes -> Delete. (IE 8, The process is quite similar in other browsers as well)

2)For XP
Start-> Run-> type temp-> Ok-> Select all-> (Shift +Delete)

For vista
Start-> Start Search-> type temp-> Ok-> Select all-> (Shift +Delete)

3) For XP
Start-> Run -> type %temp%-> Ok-> Select all -> (shift+delete)

For Vista
Start-> Start Search-> type %temp%-> Ok-> Select all-> (Shift +Delete)

4) Turn off laptop, Remove battery , Remove AC adapter, Press power button for 2 minutes. Put both back on. Turn on laptop.

5) Run virus scan and check for malware and other virus related issues. If anything is found delete the infected files.

6)
For XP
Go to Control Panel-> Add and remove programs-> Remove all unnecessary softwares

For Vista
Go to Control Panel-> programs-> Installed Progams->Remove all unnecessary softwares

7)
For XP
Run-> msconfig-> Startup->Disable all

For Vista
Start search -> msconfig -> Startup -> Disable all

8)
Check for the system RAM. If your laptop has 2 memory cards installed. One might have failed. So try to remove it and fix it back again and check.

Kindly comment after performing all these.

It takes forever to bring up "compose" line in yahoo email. why? and how to fix it.


That sounds like a computer problem. Have you cleaned out temporary internet files? Do you have a program that searches out and removes spyware/malware? Have you run it since the problem occurred?

I recommend to everyone: download & install the free version of CCleaner; also malwarebytes.

I have an acer mini laptop that runs painfully slow. Don't have much stored on there, and it is relatively new. More than one tab on internet is impossible and even Word takes forever, you type an


That would probably be the best solution. After that make sure that you have an anti-virus software that's good. I recommend "Windows Security Essentials" by Microsoft. It's free and I've used it for about 3 years now. It's detected mall-ware and viruses that Norton, Spy-sweeper or McAfee didn't catch.

MY COMPUTER IS SO SO SLOW IT TAKES FOREVER TO DO ANYTHING WHY IS THIS? IM NOT EXAGERATING IT TAKES FOREVER TO DO ANYTHING


Delete any start-up programs you don't want or use, this will help make it faster at boot-up. Go to Start Button > Programs > Start Up then delete unused programs.

You can also run disk defragmenter. Which will speed up the process of looking up files, making your computer faster. To access Start Button > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter.

There are other ways to make your computer faster like running anti-virus, spyware/adware programs, registry cleaners, and even re-installing Windows. If you still have problems take it to local computer service shop, not a "big box" store like a geek squad (they think everything is a virus).

I hope I helped your computer be faster. If you have questions please contact me on my profile. Good luck!

Pops up lime wire, curser won't work, extremely slow


Try downloading Avast Free version. I have had great success removing things infected from LimeWire with this software. When you download and get it set up, it will ask if you want to set up a boot scan. Say yes. Let the system re-boot and run. if something pops up it will pop up a window with a siren on it. move everything to the chest. Do not delete anything as it may be a system file that you delete. Lime wire is a haven for viruses. I would suggest getting rid of it.
