Do you run the Aero them with the glass windows effects etc. and have the windows sidebar running? I have found that this tends to slow down my computer a lot.

To turn off Aero:

  1. Right click on an empty area of the desktop
  2. click personalize
  3. click window colour and appearance
  4. select colour scheme:"windows vista basic"
  5. click ok
To turn off sidebar:
  1. go to start-> control panel
  2. Click windows sidebar
  3. deselect "start sidebar when windows starts"
  4. click ok
  5. on the task bar right click the windows sidebar icon
  6. click close

I think my net book have a virus


Go to download.com and install one of the free anti-viruses. It would also be worth downloading anti anti-malware product as well.

I recommend Avast Free Anti-virus and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (both are free).

My commputer is very slow could you help me speed it up?When opening a program it takes 10-15 mins gpr a program to open.


You probably have a number of viruses on your computer. My suggestion is to download these two programs and uninstall your current anti-virus software (if any).

AVG Free:

http://free.avg.com/us-en/homepage

AVG is a great anti-virus program that will always be running and protecting you.

Maleware Bytes:

http://www.malwarebytes.org/


You will want to run this free program as soon as you download it. It will remove any viruses on your computer. This is a great tool to use about once a month to make sure your computer is clean. Do a full scan and wait for it to complete. If you have completed the steps above and still have the problem, you will need more RAM. RAM is temporary memory that your computer uses when it is on. If you have very low RAM, then you will have a very slow computer.

I want to make my pc run faster and faster web. Please help me


Hi lettyeapen ,

To make your PC run faster , you can follow the below points :-

  1. Upgrade your RAM . i.e. get a new ram which will add up to your existing RAM , for e.g, if you have a 1 mb ddr2 ram , get an additional 1 mb ram or a 2GB RAM to improve your application speed.
  2. Arrange your files systematically , organize them in seperate folders and delete the clutter that you have on your hard disk , any disk cleaning software could help , for e.g. disk cleaner. Visit this link to download it - http://bit.ly/kb5pU2
  3. Perform a through scan of your hard disk and run the disk defragmenter program available with windows in case you are using microsoft windows xp , vista or 7, you can start the disk defragmenter by typing dfrg.msc in the run option in your start menu.
Now to make your web faster ,
  1. Try to get a good internet speed package from your internet service provider.
  2. Check which programs are using up your internet bandwidth , in the back ground for e.g. any update program that is being run in the back ground, if you close it , you would get an increased speed.
  3. Clean up the history and delete cookies from time to time , so that you have good performance from your browser.
Hope this helps...:)

I have an aspireone d255 and cant find a free anti virus progrm for it. help please


You can try AVG anti-virus software
http://free.avg.com/us-en/homepage
http://www.avira.com/en/avira-free-antivirus
Only warning I have is AVG may interfere with Itunes. However, that problem may have been fixed in the past year. Check with Apple. They are aware of the conflict.

My symantec Anti-virus 10.0.0.359 is out of date. It has been 7 months after 1st time installation. Now it doesnt works. So i want it to start work again. What i should do?


I suspect you got 6 months free subscription to Symantec Anti-Virus when you bought your PC. If you want to continue to use it you will have to pay a subscription fee.

If you don't want to pay for Anti-Virus software, uninstall Symantec using the "add/remove programs" control panel then download and install AVG 11 Free Edition:

http://free.avg.com/gb-en/download-avg-anti-virus-free

If you wish to install AVG in any language other than English, there is a link at the top of the page to change the language.


Please rate this solution if you find it helpful. Thanks.

Very slow computer


First of all take an Anti virus and thoroughly clean your computer of Viruses because the Viruses can make your computer very slow. If you do not have an anti virus you can download free edition of AVG anti virus from the following link.
http://free.avg.com/ww-en/download-avg-anti-virus-free
Then take a good Registry cleaner. They are many registry cleaners being sold on the internet. Pick a good one and clean your registry it will add extra speed to your computer operation.

Antivirus is basically a protection against viruses....

Basically it protects your pc from worms, trojans and viruses...

A computer worm is a self-replicating computer program.It uses a network to send copies of itself to other nodes (computerterminals on the network) and it may do so without any userintervention.

A Trojan horse, also known as a trojan, is a piece of malware which appears to perform a certain action but in fact performs many different forms of codes.

A computer virus is a computer program that can copy itself and infect a computer without permission or knowledge of the user.
