Trying to move photos from internal storage to computer


Do you use your phone to browse the internet? if so, go to internet explorer -> options -> memory. and let it delete all temporary internet files. That should free a lot of internal storage. Turning your phone off and on again can also help to delete temporary files to make room in your storage memory.

Hp g6000 running very slow any suggestions.


The HP g6000 slow issue can be caused by many many reasons such as outdated hardware, overload startup programs, corrupt registry issues, too many junks, virus attack, poor security software taking too much system resources, remnants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 these manually, try the solution http://www.speeduphp.com/fix-slow-hp.html to give a free & full scan of your slow HP PC to find & fix all possible issues.


Meanwhile, upgrading hardware configuration (add RAM, change a new video card, larger-volume HDD etc) can be a fast yet effective way to improve your pc performance.
