The browser is a weak link in the security structure of most systems. Even with virus scanners and internet security firewalls they are still the weak link because of the design considerations that allow them to do so much. While it may not solve the issue running a virus, spyware , adware scans would not be a bad idea in this case.

Online scanners such as those identified below can provide valuable second opinions on occasion.

Sites like Trend Micro, Panda, Symantec and others have online scanners that remove viruses. You might want to start with Internet Explorer and www.f-secure.com and search for online scanner -- I believe the first link returned is the online scanner. They have a beta version for Vista and either the beta or the version on the page works for WIndows XP. You can click a start scanning at the bottom of the page for which ever version you use Beta or not.

allow the activeX
Install the Active X
Click Accept
Click Custom Scan
click Scan All Files
click scan inside archives
click start

When it is done which will take a while -- you will be given the option to remove any malware it finds.

The other companies above have similar options on their web sites.

There are several free scanners that look got adware and the like.

www.lavasoft.com has both a free and commercial product -- the free product requires you to scan your own machine perioducally.

Internet explorer freezes


Hi!

Internet Explorer is probably one of the least stable web browsers available. You best solution would be to download and use another.
Firefox is a great option. It also allows you to keep your bookmarks and settings from Internet Explorer.
Download Firefox Free Web Browser
Chrome is also another great option.
Get fast free web browser

Either option will work on your current system. And provide much more functionality, speed, stability, options and more.

Good luck!

upgrading your processor will not speed up your internet only the overall speed of your system. try antivirus scan or remove any spamware/ clean out temporary internet files. look at ways to speed up your browser. Consider increasing your internet speed via your internet/broadband provider.

Dell XPS One 2710 Desktop 2013 too slow


Did you just buy it new?
If so do you have at least 4GB of RAM? Hard drive 500MB or more?
What processor should be an Intel Pentium or a core processor i3, i5, or fastest is i7. All these things will help the speed.
How long have you had it? You may have to delete history in your web browsers. I like Chrome browser best.

Hope this helps.

Way to slow down the z5610 acer fan? it runs loud after 2 years.


http://computershopper.com/desktops/reviews/acer-aspire-z5610

A) Needs to be opened up. Needs to be cleaned out inside.

Two years? Bet it looks 'scary dirty' inside. After you have cleaned out the inside, donate the 'Gunk' to local mice. They can use it for a condo. (I would charge them rent)

B) Processor may need old Thermal Paste replaced. Clean top of Processor, and bottom of finned Heatsink, and PROPERLY apply fresh, new Thermal Paste.

Primer:
Air is used to cool the inside of that All-In-One desktop computer. The Processor and graphics chipset, are the two hardware components that give off the most heat.

The finned Heatsink, and Processor Fan, are the two cooling components for the Processor. When they get clogged with 'Gunk' over the years, the cooling capacity drops -> tremendously.

The Processor fan sensor, senses that the Processor is too hot, and speeds the Processor fan up. Also BIOS speeds the computer case fan/s up.

Could also be that the bearings for the fan/s are bad. Replacement fan, or fans are needed.

ONE THING HOWEVER Karl, to work on this All-In-One you need to wear an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip connected to a good ground source.
This is just like working on a LAPTOP computer, NOT a desktop.

Average example,

(And of course unplugged from power)

Need guidance in cleaning, and replacing the Thermal Paste, just post back in a Comment. I will guide you.

Hi,

Unfortunately, you are limited to 1GB of memory, I have a storeroom full of 610s, 810s, and 9100, with the same limitation. With a fast processor above 1.5 megahertz and running nothing higher than Windows XP, you won't miss the lack of memory unless you open up five or more tabs on your browser.

Processing gets slow when several web browsers and applications are open even if the RAM can still handle it. At times, the application like WIndows Live Mail hangs (Not Responding). Thanks.


While RAM is an important factor in how fast a computer runs, Processor Time and Usage is also important. That would be your problem, your processor is not able to handle all that info at the same time. So ask yourself. Do you really need several web browsers open at the same time? Or perhaps would it be better if you saved all those pages to favorites and only had one or two open at a time and used the favorites to switch between browser pages.

2 ghz processor running at 220 mhz


Hi,

Have you tried right clicking on the desktop (opening Display Properties), clicking on Screen Saver tab, Clicking the Power button, and setting the power schemes to Home/Office Desk? If its set on laptop it will reduce the processor speed when running on battery. I have noticed that even with it plugged in that some times it will run at half processor speed. Try that out.

Have a great day,
