Question about HP Pavilion dv2000t 14.1" Notebook Laptop PC (Intel Core 2 Duo T5500 1.66 GHz, 1GB RAM, 100GB HDD, D... PC Notebook
Hello, there are a few things you can try. The problem may be that you have too many processes running at once in the background, some of which could be Spyware and others harmless progs just being a nuisance.
1. Disk Cleanup - Go start - progs - accessories and system tools. Run Disc Cleanup and follow instructions.
2. Run disk defragmenter from the same menu. This will order you files better. If you try to find a file in a filing cabinet with no order its hard, but to find a file in an alphabetically ordered cabinet its easy and quick.
3. Download a good Spyware protector ie spybot, spyware terminator.
4.Stop programs that are not required from booting at startup. Type "msconfig" in the search or run box, hit enter. Click on the startup tab and here you have a list of progs that boot on startup (ticked ones). Then if you keep that window open go to this link.
Any process that you are unfamiliar with, just type its name into the process library database to see if it is required or harmful to your system. If not needed, simply de-select.
This will take maybe 30mins or so and is well worth doing.
5. Buy some more RAM for your pc. Its cheap and easy to do. Usually just 4 screws to unscrew and plug and play.
Hope all this helps.
