What is the make and model of the computer. and i would suggest a program called spybot s&d which you can download from here http://www.safer-networking.org/en/mirrors/index.html it is a free program and it works well to get rid of spyware. also make sure you have defragged your computer as well as performing disk cleanup.

Kyocera slow printing


First you have to determine if the problem is mechanical of electrical. Are the letter bunching up. If so the print shaft may need oil. Is the data from the computer being held up some way. Bad interface maybe? Are you using the proper print driver. The wrong or damaged driver can cause print problems of various types. Check for computer viruses you would be shocked at what a virus can do to your printing. Start with those suggestions. Then come back.

My computer is really slow going into differnt sites....the compressor fan is slow to start up...had my computer stripped down and tuned up, but it's still slow...they said the cpu is showing its age,...


Your computer going slow could be for the following reasons: 1 Not enough RAM - remove unwanted files by cleaning the disc. Also defragment the computer. Increase the RAM 2 Virus - remove the virus 3 If you do the above you will see the improvement and no need to have a new cpu

Maybe a virus


is it the internet that runs slow or everything? either way, go to the following site:

http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

click on the link that says "Scan Now. Its Free!" it will do an online virus scan of your computer, and this should get rid of any viruses you have. You may have to install Java for it to work. If so, it should provide a link to install it. If it doesnt, google "java software" and download the software. it may also be a RAM problem (not enough computer memory) but thats probably not as likely if your computer is new. Also, you can go the task manager and delete all of the processes that you think arent needed (such as itunes, etc. make sure that your user name is under the user name column for each one you are deleting, and DO NOT delete the "explorer" process or any system processes). And this may speed up your computer as well.
