    To speed things up do this:

    Open up the start menu and Select "RUN" from the menu, in the box that opens up, type in "MSCONFIG" then in the next box look at the tabs at top, select "STARTUP" tab to the top, un check all the programs that u don't need running when u start the computer, this really slows the computer down, next do a 'DEFRAGMENT" go to the start menu, select "ALL PROGRAMS" then select "ACCESSORIES", in the next list select "SYSTEM TOOLS", in the next list select "DEFRAGMENT" for drives select "C", then run derangement. this should speed up the computer.

Internet in my computer is very slow


Slow Internet can be caused by many thing, I need more info to make a informed suggestion, But you can start be running a FULL virus scan with a good anti virus, also you want to run a FULL scan with a malware program, I would suggest using MALWAREBYTES found here:http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/. If you do not have a UP TO DATE Anti-Virus, one can be found on the filehippo site for free, REMEMBER to uninstall the anti virus on your machine, if you want to try another anti virus, always use the Makers REMOVAL TOOL if they supply one, I use AVAST, but that is your choice. If you have a Anti Virus make sure it's updated and working properly. You statement,"Internet in my computer is very slow" does not give me much to work with. Need computer Manufactuer, Model, type OS, etc. Also are you using TOOLBARS on you IE or what ever Broswer you are using. TOOLBARS, MESSENGERS, CHAT, any thing that is "hogging" your resourses when using your broswer SHOULD BE DISABLED, the rule is the more "Stuff" you have running, on you computer at start, or your broswer will slow it down. It's like YOU, on a long walk, ever half mile you pick up a 10 pound weight, after a day treck you have to slow down a bit. To make a short story long, GET RID OF THE EXCESS BAGGAGE. If you need assistance respond to this solution.

My system is slow and i cant purchase registry booster can u help


To speed up your system you need to

-- clean system junk
-- optimize computer services
-- repair registry
-- defrag registry
-- clear browsers junk

You can do all this using some reliable software such as RegInOut.

If you are unable to purchase, you can still talk to representative for trail license.

I have Microsoft Windows Vista, Home premium Version 6.0 (Build 6002: Service Pack 2), had Norton Internet Security. The Cursor jumps around and clicks in the middle of words or page, when typing, selects...


I would suggest using a different antivirus protection program.

Several great tools to use are:

Anti-Virus - Avast , its free and very reliable.
Malware Protection - Malwarebytes, it too is free and a scan every so often keeps your computer bug free.
Unwanted Install Protection - Spybot Search and Destroy, again it is free and will clean your registry keys and keep your computer protected from hidden installers.

Avast: http://www.avast.com/index
Malwarebytes: http://www.malwarebytes.org/
