    if you didn't experience it from the time you bought your laptop, then you should atleast defrag your laptop or clean your system

Do NOT load Threatfire. Avast has a behaviour shield as part of its system. Threatfire is a behaviour shield and is notoriously difficult to uninstall, Avast & Malwarebytes are good enough to detect any viruses without it.
Most slowing down of computers is caused by the owners never cleaning out the **** that accumulates over time. This is known as housekeeping.
Here are links to 2 cleaners and 1 defrag tool all of which I use and are excellent freeware tools.
1/. http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/standard
First run cleaner then open registry, scan for issues then fix issues.

2/. http://advanced-systemcare.en.softonic.com/download
Run deep care cleaner, then open toolbox and run ram cleaner deep scan, then minimise. Spend time with the toolbox and get to know how it functions.

3/. http://download.cnet.com/Auslogics-Disk-Defrag/3000-2094_4-10567503.html?part=dl-6267754&subj=dl&tag=button
Analyse your hard drive then run defragment and optimise'

If you use the cleaners regularly (once a week) you system will run well. You shouldn't need to use the defrag tool more than once a month unless you're constantly downloading. The cleaners only take a few minutes when used regularly. The defrag about half an hour depending on the size of your hard drive & the amount of info you have stored on it.

I hope this helps.

Your netbook could be infected with viruses, malware or trojans....check the guide below.....

At the end of this are three links to programs that you should load up and run. The first is MalwareBytes Ant-Malware Tool, another is Avast Anti-Virus 5.0, the third is Threatfire.
Run MalwareBytes first and perform a quick scan, when it finishes, it will ask you to show the results, click on “Show results, all infections will appear in red. Delete everything it finds.
Run Avast and install it, when it asks, go ahead and schedule a pre-boot scan of your entire system. This should get rid of most problems….Now, if you have Norton Anti-Virus, internet security or any of the others, they also be causing some of your problems. They will have to be removed and the only way to properly do that is go to the Norton site and download their Norton removal tool. Run this before installing any other kind of ant-virus. The Avast 5.0 is free to use, just register it once a year, that is all…it will update itself 2-4 times a day to keep its virus definitions constantly updated, you do not have to do anything, it is completely automated and has 7 real time scanners that run all the time.

When your boot time scan is over and you have either deleted or moved the infection to the chest as Avast recommends, now run Threatfire…it will ask you to let it update as will Malwarebytes, do so. Threatfire monitors every web page on the world wide web and lets you know if your tap dancing where you shouldn’t, it will throw a flag up and say abort connection…do so to save yourself from a bad situation. The links are below.

Why is my computer so slow to connect to internet web sites


I would try to connect using a wired connection instead of a wireless connection to see if the speed increases. Also go to Speakeasy Speed Test and run a test to see what speed your internet is really running at.

I have a acer laptop that I let my son use and I've noticed that it is very slow and also it gets very hot. What do you think the problem is?


Dear Kristen,
1. Your laptop is running slow because there are too many applications running in the background. Go through the start menu and remove them if you don't need them.
2. Defragment your hard disks. Use a tool such as O & O Defrag Pro.
3. Your Acer heating up is a normal issue. Some older acer laptops heat up quite a lot. This is not an issue in laptops purchased after 1/1/2010.
If you are worried, get your laptop checked and serviced by a qualified technician or just simply hand it over to the nearest service center.

My acer laptop is running so slow


Hi oyinlag...
Do a disc clean-up of your hard drive...Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disc Clean-up
After the Disc clean-up of your hard drive do a Disc Defragment...Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disc Defragment
After that if it is still running slow then You are probably infected with spyware or a maybe a virus or Trojans.
Try this first...go to Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Restore...and restore your computer to a time when it was running fast.
If that doesn't work then I recommend that you download and install and run Microsoft Safey Scanner to remove the virus or other junk and spyware.
It is a free program with tech help via the web thru web chat. He can even take control of your computer and do the removal work for you if it is not removed by Microsoft Safety Scanner.
Please take time to rate me
