There are several things you can do that may help with your speed issues. Performing a defrag on your C: drive is an excellent first step, then after that going in to Internet Explorer, click on Tools then Internet Options. Delete your Browsing History and reboot. You will notice an immediate improvement in performance.

Do a deep virus scan. Install and scan with Windows Defender (free from microsoft) you probably have a virus and or spyware slowing it down. After running those 2 times each, if it's not a lot better you will need a Tech to clean it up.

My net flick keeps interrupting movies to load


Netflix, unfortunately, isn't the problem. Something is bogging you down, making you load too slow. Here are the most common reasons:
  • Your computer is too old, hence too slow.
  • Your modem is too old, hence too slow.
  • Your ISP (service provider) is providing a linkage that is too slow.
    • depending on the kind of contract you have with them this can be caused by various things.
    • the link really is too slow--upgrade the link
    • they have you on a variable line and it is peak load time--wait until a low load time to watch Netflix.
    • they have too many customers linked into your line--they're lousy ISP's. Find a new provider.
  • you've been on the internet too long. This is complicated to explain. If you want the explanation, ask.
    • Close your browser and open it again.
    • If that doesn't work, close your browser, restart your machine, open browser.
    • If that doesn't work, close browser, close machine, close modem, wait 5 minutes, start modem, wait 2 minutes, start computer, start browser.
  • You have another program that is accessing the internet or intranet if you have one.
    • I'm constantly having this problem!
    • Look at what you have open. If any access the internet, close them.
    • The two worst culprits are Skype and iTunes.

New RAM, still painfully slow.


That's extremely slow - although you don't say if it has always performed at this speed or it has recently slow down, I'd first download Malwarebytes and run a full scan - there might be a virus.

Run Task Manager, click Performance tab and check CPU, memory and disk usage to see which is the culprit.

Two utilities I would also recommend using: Chkdsk and Defragmenter.

Something is running in the background that is using processor time. Try shutting down NORTON (disconnect from internet first) Open several windows, play a game and play some music to stress the processor a bit, see if it is still happening. If it isn't Norton is your problem. Before I switched virus programs and ditched Norton, I had a lot of this going on. Norton seems to do a check every few seconds and I was never able to discover a way to turn that off. If you can handle the "techs" Call them and ask them to help you fix this... otherwise... Get another anti virus solution. (I use AVAST internet security)

Can you help me to speed my internet access and my laptop is 2 days old i cant open my skype my laptop is hp compaq 610


Internet speed is dependent on the provider. If you have DSL and there are several people or computers using the Internet, it will be slow.
Your HP610 has enough processing power and LAN speed to get online fast.
If you have had this laptop two days, was it always slow? Or did it become slow?
If it became slow, go to Malwarebytes.org and scan your laptop for malware. If you do not have a malware prevention program on the laptop, it will get trojans which will slow it down to a crawl.
You can see the various products to prevent this here.

If it's only 18 months old surely it will still be under some sort of manufacturers guarantee, you don't bin 18 month old coffeemakers nor should you be paying to fix them. Put the problem back in their lap.
