Re: Slow starting

On ccleaner use the until to setup the startup and get rid of somestuff.. also you could use another 512mb of ram.. its pretty cheap now.. check out or . once a year i back up everything on my computer and Format my OS harddrive and reinstall windows . There is nothing better then a fresh install of windows. that will for sure speed things up until you bogg it down with programs again.. but at least you can start over. good luck , hope this has helped.

My feiends Dell Net book is very slow, I set the system back and Installed AVG removed Mal Wares it ran good, When i took it back it went to running very slow again~!! So do I have to wipe it and...

There are many free and effective registry cleaners. You can use Ccleaner (which I highly recommend). You can download Ccleaner from here (click here). It's bundled with System Cleaner, Registry Cleaner and other utilities. Run the System cleaner and the registry cleaner. Check the startups and also verify all the services from the Task Manager.

Sometimes some virus can't be removed if they really infected some files, in that case, you better reinstall the windows (full format), but remember, during the backup or file transfer, don't simply copy/paste, instead use the wizard like "backup" or "Files and Settings Transfer"..

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Minimize Number of Programs atStart-Up If you are running too many programsat start-up this can be a cause of Windows Vista running slowly. So try tominimize the number of programs running at start-up. Follow these steps todisable start-up programs. 1. Click Start
2. Select Run
3. In the dialog box type MsConfig
4. Press Enter, a pop-up window will appear on your screen
5. Click on Start-up
6. Uncheck unwanted services and programs from startup
7. Press OK
8. Restart your PC b> Increase System Memory Most of us ignore the issue ofmemory when Windows Vista runs so slow. Many old computers came with 512 MB ofRAM and on such PC's Windows XP runs well but if you want to run Windows Vistaon such a PC you should have at least 1 GB of RAM for smooth performance. b> Clean Out Viruses While surfing the internet somemalicious applications are downloaded and installed automatically in oursystem. These malicious applications decrease the performance of any operatingsystem, Windows Vista run so slow due to these infected files. To get rid ofthese malicious applications you must download and install a powerful Virus andSpyware cleaner. Run a full PC virus scan and remove all the viruses, malwareand other infected files. b> Clean Out Registry Windows registry contains registrykeys of all the applications that you run on your PC and there are some entriesthat result in corruption in the registry. Corrupt registry problem cannot befixed by scanning your PC for viruses and spy-wares because registry errorscannot be detected by antivirus. For this you need a good registry cleaner andPC optimizer such as reginout.

Computer running very slow


Ok, firstly, the ram will not extend the life of your laptop, it will only give a slight increase in the process speed of your laptop, depending on how much you add.

You can buy the ram modules you need at any computer hardware store, they will instruct you on the best prices and how to install it. You can also try to buy it online(Ebay) where you will somwtimes get a better deal.

Kind regards

Slow loading up ,could it be my processor

It most likely is not your processor as processors tend to either function or fail. Most everthing you install seems to feel a need to install start-up programs on your computer. This causes for a slow start-up. Try a cleaner (NOT one of those flashy pop-ups that claim to fix your computer). CCleaner is a pretty good one. Clean yor registry. Also, different OS's have tools to optimize your startup as well. Check your tools.

MSCONFIG allows you to stop programs from starting up when you boot up your computer to windows. This is good cause it will allow your computer to run quicker and more efficient cause less memory will be used. Virus protection is important cause it protects your files and Operating System from corrupting on you due to infections from spyware, malware, trojans, viruses, etc. A good free one if you don't have Mcafee or Norton is AVG and its free on the internet from:

Everybody has different opinions on what anti-virus program is good so decide for yourself which way you want to go. Hope this helps.
