Re: Temporary Internet Files

Temporary internet files could harm your pc if the files contents virus, this could also slow your pc because if you have files that was infected with virus specifically the application files. Those files were automatically load into the services and in the processes and also in the start up without your consent. If all these files will run in the system this will cause " a low virtual memory" because the memory speicified was use by these useless and annoying application.

If you encounter these problem i would suggest that scan you computer with a potent antivirus, you should empty the temporary files and the recycled bin.

If you are sure that the computer is virus free and still encountering the "low virtual memory" you can increase your virtual memory by doing these:

1 right click my computer and then properties
2. click the advance tab
3. in the performance., click setting
4. then " advance tab"
5. in the virtual memory click change
6. check custom setting
7. in the initial size double the size of your memory
7. maximum double the initial size you setted.

If these will not solve the problem i would recommend you to format and reinstall your system.

Hope this help

There are a lot of pop ups and slow internet loading

your internet may be slow due to following reasons
- Your ISP (internet service provider) may be having issues with routing signals to you.
- Your browser memory cache is so full, your browser has to slow down to allow for its limited hard drive space.
- You might have spyware/malware infecting your machine, and secretly using your Internet bandwidth.
You need to optimize browsers and internet connection.
- First of all update the browser
- Disabling The Firewall
- Remove unwanted tool-bars and plug-ins
- clear temp files
- Deactivate background running services
If you are unable to perform above tasks then use a single utility tool like PC Fresher that will not only fix windows errors but will also optimize Internet.

Every day, my computer says I have low disc space memory. All I've been doing is surfing the web and watching Youtube videos, for example. Do I have a worm? I now went out & bought Kaspersky Internet...

  • Hi, what you need to do is "Add" more Memory to the "Virtual Memory, the memory is used to "Cache" for file indexing, Paging of files... it handles for all running Processes, Networking, and Services. 1. Go to and open the Control Panel, select the Performance and Tools, category, next open the "Adjust Visual Effects." 2. In the "Performance Options, click on the Advanced button, there will be Virtual memory area, that show how much memory is "allocated" towards "paging file..." (RAM) on the Harddisk; click on the "Change button, in the window (view) the "Recommended amount, in (MB)." 3. If the Memory is less< than the recommended Total for paging, change it. Clear the # number in the Intial size box, type the recommended amount or > Higher, example: (Recommended = 4219) type ( 4219 or 4519 or higher), next click on the "Set button, click OK." You may need to restart the computer. "If the solution helped, rating it is appreciated, thanks"

Internet connection is too slow and browsing is too slow. How can i set to a faster browsing solution or any software to be download to make it faster to browse into the internet

Download Malware Bytes from and run the quick scan.

Also, Go to the Control Panel and to Internet Options and delete all cookies and temporary internet files.

Do you have anti-virus software? Make sure you run that periodically. If not then AVG free is not bad.

Also bare in mind the time of day will affect browsing performance as well as what else you are doing at the same time (such as downloading or running other programs on your pc).

Hope that helps

Performance problems/slowdown wtih Internet Explorer 8?!?

IE8 runs slightly slower than IE7 due to the fact that it has more built-in security features and additional features. Also, some antivirus softwares and too much unused / accumulated data in the form of temporary internet files and cookies in your PC slow-down the browsing experience.

To clean up temporary internet files, click on the Tools button on the IE toolbar, select Internet Options from the menu which comes up. Then on the General page, under Browsing History section click on Delete button. Then you can select the items which you want to delete, then click on Delete> click on OK.

You can also try Google Chrome browser which is one of the fastest browser. Download link:

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks.
