Optimize the Windows Recyle Bin
Do you often send a lot of junk files to your computer's recycle bin? It's nice to be able to delete your unwanted files quickly and with just a click of a button. One of the great features about the Windows Recycle Bin is that files aren't immediately deleted, so if you make a mistake, you can restore the files quickly. Despite how easy the process seems, it can be a pain dealing with the slowed performance speed of your computer if your recycle bin isn't properly configured.


Clear all temporary files stored in ur PC by typing " %temp% "(without quotes) in Run from start menu. It shows bulk of files, delete all those.

Then type "msconfig" (without quotes) it opens a window in that choose startup and uncheck the unwanted files to be loaded during startup.

Increase ur RAM memory if its very low.
if u find its not sufficient, reply me with specifications of ur PC. Surely i'll help u........

Can you please tell me what type of wifi usb adaptor to use connecting to intrnet can you give me the specs for adaptor there are so many different types on the market


There are four flavours of WiFi: a, b, g, & n.
A is oldest and slowest, N is the newest and fastest.

My recommendation to you is to purchase the cheaper variation of N called N150 or 150N.
This means that it's maximum connection speed to a WiFi network is 150 mega-bits per second. This is half the speed of the fastest N variation.

However, what the salesmen won't tell you at the store is that 150 megabits per second is still at least ten times faster than a typical 'very fast' internet connection. So why pay double to have a 300 megabit connection to your router, when you have only 15 megabits possible from the internet?

Where I live the N150 usb adaptors & routers are much cheaper than N300; this is why I recommend them. I recently bought a Belkin N150.

I hope that helps.

Reception from rounter to playing netflix is slow


Netflix is actually a very demanding application. Depending on the quality of the title, the application may need up to 5 megabits in bursts with 3.2 megabits sustained to get the best quality picture, or at least those are the sustained speeds I see when I run Netflix from my PS/3 using my Wi-Fi connected to DSL as a source. (Add 128K for audio).
When Netflix starts playing a movie, it tests the server to playing system speed and selects a download speed based on the available bandwidth. It then uses the bandwidth to play the movie.

If the connection seems unable to sustain that during the playback, Netflix will tell its server to send a slower version of the movie. The first stepback I've seen seems to be about one megabit. I've occasionally stepped down to one megabit, and I usually stop the movie and resume play to get the better video (since I can see the difference) so I've never had Netflix further step down.

But the router to computer speed should not be a problem. The slowest "max" speed is the 10 megabit ethernet, with G being up to 54 megabits and N being much much faster than that. 5 Megabits?
Except that when you mix modes (use N, B, and G on the same connection), the speed goes down, and when you do not have a good signal, you can get a mode that goes down to 2 megabits.
Do you have a good signal? Like 75% or better (3 of 4 bars)?
Try reorienting the router until you do - or reorient the receiving device, or see if you can us a higher gain antenna.
Make sure your router is the only device on the channel. Lots of people use channel 1 - and this means that routers take turns. Most routers can "survey" and will tell you what SSIDs are associated with which channels. Try to switch to a channel that is both unused and separated from other channels by a couple numbers. You will have to use the 2.4 gig band unless all of your devices are N and you have no B/G devices.
What is your rated speed, that is, what speed channel does your ISP sell you? Is it a 10 megabit, 5 megabit, 2 megabit, 1 megabit? The slowest speed that the local DSL provider will sell you is 512k down, 128k up - and that won't work for Netflix highest quality (they sell that to people who are up to 25 kilofeet from their central office or multiplexor pedistal) but then they don't get great quality.
Try a speed test site. If you can't find sites that deliver you 300k byte download speeds, you will probably fail to get good quality streams from Netflix. And if your rated speed is close to your measured and used speed, then Netflix may get pushed aside by marginal traffic that is considered higher priority, like VOIP, or another download, or websurfing that happens at the same time as the Netflix playback.
Good luck, hope this helps..
Again, you need a strong signal on a channel that is not being shared for the best transfer speeds.

What wifi card for 12xl500 (compaq)?


It depends.

If your computer runs Windows XP or Windows Vista or Windows 7, every known brand-new wireless adapter will work.

If your computer has a PCMCIA slot (about the size/thickness of a credit-card), then you can buy a "PCMCIA wireless adapter".

If your computer has a USB slot (most do!) then you can buy a "USB wireless adapter".

There are three different data-transfer speeds for wireless communications:
* wireless B -- up to 11 megabits/second
* wireless G -- up to 54 megabits/second
* wireless N -- much faster.

Note that "high-speed" service from your local cable-modem ISP can receive at up to 10.0 megabits (or even faster) per second, while "lite-speed" service receives data at around 1.0 megabits per second.

So, when downloading, it's your cable-modem (or DSL-modem) that will be the "bottle-neck", not the "B" or "G" or "N" capability of your wireless adapter.

You probably can find "used" wireless-B or wireless-G adapters, in your local area:
* online, via 'www.usedEverwhere.com'
* local computer-stores
* online via eBay

for $10 to $20 dollars.

Pick a "brand-name", and you can download the device-drivers for it from the manufacturer's web-site ('www.linksys.com', 'www.dlink.com')
if Windows does not automatically recognize it.
