Hi, korbinsjusti, you gave so little details about your computer. It will be better if you can give us the detail like the RAM...
The very first thing that I recommend you to do is check the RAM. Lack of RAM is always the most serious cause of slow running computer.
However, if the RAM is already at the maximum that the motherboard can support, you got to do something else:
Disk cleanup is good, but not enough. Run the system tool-Disk Defragmenter every two or three months, not too often, or it will harm the span of hard drive.
Cleanup registry. This require a professional registry optimizer. Manual search and cleanup is never recommended by anyone.
Defragment registry. This can be done with a free registry defrag tool. You can find it on google.
Besides, here is a post on Fixya.com telling you in detail how to speed up computer, I think it is good and worth reading: http://www.fixya.com/support/r3760943-fix_slow_computer

Free download antivirus software


DON'T. If you are running windows, just make sure it is up to date then download Windows Defender and use Microsoft Security Essentials (both Free through Microsoft)

Using any Anti-Virus will cause your system to be sluggish. What kind of computer are you using? Laptop/Desktop? What are your specs? Operating System?, amount of RAM?, HARD DRIVE Size?

There could be a number of things causing your computer to be slow.

My ACER 5100-4720 boots up with a black screen and after about 15 minutes it loads Windows Vista, but it is very sluggish, then it acts like it gets up to speed and still runs sluggish. I have 1GB DDR2,...


The first thing I would check is that the cpu fan is working. You should be able to see the fan come on from the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes the fans can stick from dust and dirt. Then the cpu will get very hot and cause the computer to slow way down. Try using a can of compressed air on the fan and see if it starts working. If the fan is working ok then you might have some type of virus or corrupted installation causing the computer to slow way down. You could try pressing F8 right before windows starts to load. This will bring up a boot menu. Then try booting the computer in safe mode with networking and see if it boots up fairly quickly. Once it boots up in safe mode run your virus scanning software to see if there are any viruses on your computer.

Motor is sluggish, Necchi Model#4795


Set machine to wind the bobbin to check for how fast the machine will run. I believe it will run fast or slow according to how hard you depress the foot control. If it runs fast and slow you have a problem in the machine. Most likely the machine, if turned by hand, is hard to turn and it needs to be professionally serviced. before it is ruined.
