Hello

Have your computer always been slow or is it a recent problem?

If it has always been slow, you need to install more ram. Just take your computer to your nearest computer hardware store and they should inform you on what ram you need to buy. They will do it for free.

If this slow pc is a recent problem, you might want to defrag the computer. But this could just as easy be a duplication virus, so it might also help if you update your virus protector and do a full system scan.

My best advice is however to format the computer and install a clean copy of windows.

Hope you can find this helpful.

Kind regards
Andrea

Generally speaking, there are mainly 2 reasons causing a pc (especially an old one) running slow. Outdated hardware or poor system maintenance. If possible, try upgrade hardware configuration such as add more RAM etc. This way will be most effective. Otherwise you can try this pc utility to diagnose thus fix the possible issues. Best regards!

Hi there,
It could be that you have some viruses or spyware/adware bogging down your system, install Avira AntiVir Personal from here and do a scan and if that doesnt work then scan with Spybot: Search and Destroy which you can get from here.
Hope this helps.

My laptop computer is very slow to start up, even though we have high speed internet. i can play several games of spider solitaire before my home page comes up. i always delete the browsing history from...


> several games of Spider Solitaire ...

That is *EXTREMELY* slow.

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the network-cable from your computer.
Turn the computer on -- without a network-connection, does it start-up (to the Windows "wallpaper') any faster?

Uninstall BitTorrent and/or LimeWire and/or any other "file-sharing" software.

Run a "full" virus-scan -- something BAD may be running on your computer.

Slow/Non-Existent Internet


More info would be neccassarry to determine if this is a virus causing this, or spyware, or just a newly installed program or windows update, try clicking start, all programs,accessories, system tools, system restore" and choose a point in time that the pc operated mormally, if this doesn't fix the problem, it may be virus related and more thourough support would be advised. The above procedure will not erase your data.
Please leave a good rating if this helps. Thanks

My DSL is Too Slow, could it involve my phone lines?


Hello there.

It sounds like your computer might be infected with something, you should not be getting popups in this day and age :)

I would suggest 2 things, firstly you can avoid most of the problems on the Internet by using a safer web browser, either Firefox or Opera is much safer than using the included browser Internet Explorer6/7.

The second thing would be to run an online virus, trojan, spyware scanner such as housecall . This runs in your web browser and does not conflict with any antivirus installed on the computer, let it scan your computer and when its done it should remove anything found.

Doing this and using another web browser should speed up your computer which in turn should speed up your internet hopefully.

In firefox you can even install a plugin call 'adblock filter updater' which not only blocks adverts but stops them from even loading, this should speed up your connection some.

Try this and let us know.
Hope this helps.
