Press "control, alt, and delete" on your keyboard and this will bring up the task manager and show you what is running in the background of your computer. Press the "end task" button on each program you don't want to use. To speed up your computer, download these two separate programs and run them. The first one will clean out your registry errors and the second one will remove the spy ware off your hard drive.

Why my computer laptop so slow ?


Go to search box at the left in the start menu, type in "msconfig" then turn off all programs that you don't use on startup so they will run only when needed, this should speed things up a bit.

Pc performer


Hello,

PC Performer is a rogue registry cleaner and usually gets installed with free programs or by clicking ads. I wouldn't trust that you have that many errors as it is just trying to goad you into purchasing it but it will have slowed your computer down to trick you into believing there are errors. Uninstall PC Performer from your Programs and Features applet in the Control Panel. Depending on how it got installed you might have some other unknown programs need removed too such as Speed Analysis2 or 7goGames. Check through the list for any others you didn't install

Once uninstalled download AdwCleaner from http://general-changelog-team.fr/fr/downloads/finish/20-outils-de-xplode/2-adwcleaner. Close all open programs and internet browsers then open up AdwCleaner and click the Scan button, once the scan completes click on Clean.

To remove PC Performer from your internet browsers download Junkware Removal Tool from http://thisisudax.org/downloads/JRT.exe Double click the tool (jrt.exe), it will open in command prompt, press any key to run the scan, a log will pop open when it completes.

Run an anti-malware scan to make sure nothing has been missed, if you don't have one I recommend the free version of MBAM http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/

I have low memory and my laptop is slow


Toshiba laptops are not intrinsically slow computers and more often than not a slow computer is caused by a software rather than a hardware problem. Computers get bogged down by running too many processes at once, having the information in the hard drive stored in different parts of the disk (fragmented) and computer virus, worm or spy ware infestations. Of course, sometimes a computer simply doesn't have the hardware to run certain programs or will have a hardware issue that needs to be fixed.

Disk Cleanup

1.Click "Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/Disk Cleanup" to open the Disk Cleanup program.

2.Select the hard drive that you want to clean up if you have more than one hard drive and then click "Ok" to get started.

3.Wait for the Disk Cleanup tool to calculate how much space it will be able to save by compressing your files. Compressing the files in your hard drive will open up space that in turn helps your computer access information faster.

4.Click the "More Options" tab on the "Disk Cleanup" window that appears and then click the "Clean Up" button within the "Windows Components" section. This will allow you to select what Windows Components you want to disable. Disabling Windows Components will make your computer software by diminishing the programs that are running.

5.Click the "Clean Up" button within the "Installed Programs" section. This will allow you to select what computer programs you no longer wish to have installed on your computer and uninstall them. Uninstall programs that have not been used in a long time such as old video games to speed up your Toshiba laptop.

6.Click the "Clean Up" button with the "System Restore" section. This will delete all but the most recent of your backup files so that you don't have useless backup files taking up space and slowing down your laptop computer.

7.Click the "Disk Cleanup" tab and then select all the files from the "Files to Delete" section that you want to delete. This will delete all those files from your computer making your computer faster by freeing up memory space. Click "Ok" to delete the files and exit Disk Cleanup.

Fan

1.Blow pressurized air from a pressurized air can into the Fan slits on the bottom and side of the Toshiba laptop to clear it of dust. A dusty, dirty fan will cause speed issues on your Toshiba laptop.

2.Power off the computer, remove the battery and all external devices and then unscrew all the screws that have a keyboard picture on it.

3.Remove the keyboard from your Toshiba laptop and on the inner, upper, left hand corner, on the side of the monitor, you'll see the fan.

4.Blow pressurized air into the fan to clear the dust and then replace the keyboard, screws, battery, external devices and power the computer back on.

Processes

1.Press the "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete" keys on your Toshiba laptop keyboard simultaneously and then select "Start Task Manager."

2.Click the "Processes" tab and take inventory of all the processes running on your computer.

3.Right-click on each process with your Username to the right of the process name and then select "End Process." Do not end processes that are vital to your computer running properly such as explore.exe or processes that don't have your username to the right of the process name.

4.Restart your computer if you end a vital process.

You need to give more details...
Following are the common methods to increase computer running speed:
- Delete Windows temp files
- Run disk cleanup and defragmenter, this can help you clean junk files, and speed up opening programs and files. If possible, use a third-party programs rather than the built-in system tools, they take really a long time...
- Clean WIndows registry and run defragmenter. This can reduce registry errors and reduce its size, so as to speed up application response. Here is a free registry defrag tool which I feel quite easy to use.

My laptop freezes after start up. I start the computer and it runs normal until right after log in. I have roughly 30 seconds to 1 minute after logging in before the fan turns on and the laptop starts...


when was the last time your computer worked fine? run system restore and choose a restore point prior to when the issue started. if no restore point is available, open run and enter 'msconfig', go to startup and disable unecessary startup programs. also open the prefetch folder and delete its contents. then restart your system. if it's still slow, i suggest you backup your files and reinstall windows. make sure that you operate the laptop on a flat surface to avoid any ventilation blockage. hope it'll help. good day. =)'
