Yes, you can get (any) help. You must run a Registry Cleaner. It will clean your Windows registry which seems to be having irrelevant entries. You can down load one free from or you can search google for free registry cleaners. I had the same problem and my laptop used to take over 20 mins to boot. I cleaned it with one RC and now it gallops like a new laptop. I do not think that you have any hardware problem.

Next time you turn it on go through a Disk Clean up . Press start, go to All Programs, click on Accessories, go to system tools, and click on Disk Clean up...
it might take a while because its loading up all the unnecessary things on your computer that you dont use. after its done it should show a list of things to be deleted. it should also show you how much memory it will clear up. press okay and it will start cleaning. this process will take some time so be patient. in the end it will provide a slight increase in the computers speed and performance.

I have a dell latitude laptop my problem is, it takes over 5 minutes to power off. I click shut down screen goes to desktop screen no icons about 5 minutes later it says its shutting down screen goes black...

There may be nothing running in task manager that you can see but there is still something running,My advice is to take it to your local Geek Squad or preferred computer tech you most likely have a virus that is slowing down your computer process.

My computer is running very slow it is a dell dimension 5150 pc desktop and it takes 5 full minutes to load at least.. help? 2/3 of the desktop space is being used.. I dont know if it's because of that..

Go to Start --> Run, type "msconfig".

Go to the tab labeled "Startup", and disable all the items on that list.

Make sure you are not on the "SERVICES" list.

When I turn computer on it takes almost 5 minutes to boot up.

If you have defragged the HD and it still runs slow, then you should run msconfig. If you contact me via phone I can walk you though it.
