Question about Toshiba (MK4004GAH) 40 GB Hard Drive
My hard drive is too slow when window starts and when multiple program are opened and make tickle noise...any solutions...
When Windows starts up, a number of programs will start automatically. Most of them don't need to start but they do. The more programs that start up, the longer your computer will take to load everything.
The first thing to do is to get rid of all the junk in your computer. Uninstall any program you no longer want.
Clearout all your old temporary internet files.
Do a registry and adware clean.
Get rid of old documents and files, anything you do not need.
To see the programs that start when you boot up:
When the window opens Click Startup
You will see a vast number of programs that your computer loads each time you boot. You can uncheck a lot of them. Do a google search for startup programs before you uncheck anything. There are some good guides that will tell you what to allow to start and what you don't need. Note any unchecked program will not be deleted or uninstalled and will still work when you want them. You will need to restart your computer if you make any changes in msconfig
I would also suggest you defrag your hard drive.
Go to Start-Programs-Accessories-Syatem Tools-Defragmenter
Follow the instructions.
Do not rule out the possibility that you have a virus or some other spyware program running in the background which slows things down. Check these out too.
