I need to speed up my computer


How old is it?
Has it slowed down with age?
All PCs get slower with use.
The cause could be many things.
There are programs that will marginally speed it up, but the best results will only be achieved by restoring it to it's original new condition.

Pc performer


Hello,

PC Performer is a rogue registry cleaner and usually gets installed with free programs or by clicking ads. I wouldn't trust that you have that many errors as it is just trying to goad you into purchasing it but it will have slowed your computer down to trick you into believing there are errors. Uninstall PC Performer from your Programs and Features applet in the Control Panel. Depending on how it got installed you might have some other unknown programs need removed too such as Speed Analysis2 or 7goGames. Check through the list for any others you didn't install

Once uninstalled download AdwCleaner from http://general-changelog-team.fr/fr/downloads/finish/20-outils-de-xplode/2-adwcleaner. Close all open programs and internet browsers then open up AdwCleaner and click the Scan button, once the scan completes click on Clean.

To remove PC Performer from your internet browsers download Junkware Removal Tool from http://thisisudax.org/downloads/JRT.exe Double click the tool (jrt.exe), it will open in command prompt, press any key to run the scan, a log will pop open when it completes.

Run an anti-malware scan to make sure nothing has been missed, if you don't have one I recommend the free version of MBAM http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/

My computer is running really slow whenever a new


VinayT is right, not all updates are for you. Besides, he recommends CCleaner for you to clean Windows registry and improve the slow running speed, why this?
If you have never cleaned your registry before, then it will be shocking when you see how many errors exist in your Windows registry. Since you have installed and uninstalled programs, information is stored there. Those errors can cause Windows crash, freeze, errors and, slowdown.
CCleaner is good, but in my opinion, not good enough as a registry cleaner, because it covers less areas than paid registry optimizer software, here is a free registry cleaner review may help you know this.
Good luck!

Processor is extremely SLOW


Processors are what they are. They run at the speed that is selected. In your bios you can change the automatic settings and speed it up or slow it down but if you've done nothing to change this then it should be the same speed as it was when you bought the computer. I will say that if you're running XP then your computer probably has slowed down considerably since it was new. As they add more and more service packs and security updates windows seems to bog down more and more. Also as you install programs on your computer, they all think that they are the most important software on your computer and should start automatically every time windows starts. If you do nothing to stop them then you have more and more programs running at windows startup using up more and more computer resources. If you're adept at computers then you can fix this by clicking on run and typing "msconfig" and disabling some of these programs under the "startup" tab. BE WARE!! Some of these programs are needed and you can mess your computer up bad if you disable a bunch of stuff you're not suppose to.

Reinstalling programs?


Once a game has been un-installed it is gone for good. Your PC may keep your saved games so you can re-install & resume but you must re-install the game!

How can i speed up my dell m140 laptop


The best way to speed up your laptop is to increase the RAM on it, Windows runs much better with more RAM.

You can check to see what the max RAM amount is for your laptop and the price for it is by checking www.offtek.co.uk, at least this will give you the information needed so that you can purchase it else where.

If this has helped you then please rate me!

My Dell Laptop has slowed down considerably. Can


for Total speed boost

laptops overtime become slow so they need a little tlc time to time
I created this method so you can do it yourself.

first’ up delete the filthy files, the internet junk that you don't need
by doing a disk clean'up, simply right click on the hard drive C and
go to proprieties then chose disk clean'up.

after that, delete some hidden programs and stuff you don't use anymore
by going to start, control panel, add and remove programs then delete what you
don't need. especially java updates delete all of them leave just one.

now run your antivirus and scan for any viruses and spams.

after that move'up pictures and files you don't need anymore into dvds or cds.

now run a defragmenter by clicking on start, run, write defrag and run it
then a table will come'up select the C drive and defrag, this will take
around 1h.

now restart your computer and it should be faster.

Startup windows


First do a general cleaning then delete any programs from start up that you don't need. Delete any un needed dectop icons.

The biggest problem for slow start ups is because of a corrupt or bloated registry. You need to clean and repair it.

Windows is looking for programs that are no longer there or corrupted, the default time for windows OS to wait is 30 seconds before it gives up and moves on. So if you have a lot of bad registry files this will really slow a computer down. A lot more info can be found here - http://registry-repair-program-reviews.com
