Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic Edition
My computer is running so slow
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
