Sounds like you are suffering from VistaItis, where the api's and dll's are not making it happen. You may need to reinstall most of your driver sets..

Computer is running slow may have a virus


Sounds like you have the We-Care.com app installed; it's a free online donation tool. You may have downloaded it along with a disk utility or some other freeware. If you're getting a popup message, you're probably having issues. Contact them at the email address, or uninstall by following directions below:

Open your Start menu and choose Control Panel.
In Windows XP: choose Add/Remove Programs.
In Vista: choose Programs/Features.
In Windows 7: Choose Uninstall a program.
Find the We-Care Reminder (may be ASPCA Reminder by We-Care.com).
Choose Remove (Windows XP), or right click and select uninstall (Vista and Win 7).

Why is my computer getting really slow


There could be a lot of reasons. It may be old, it may have a lot of spyware on it or a virus, it may be fragmented, it may have very little space on the HDD, etc.

To get it to run a little faster download, install and run CCleaner and Malwarebytes. Those two programs should help fix a lot of problems. If it's still running slow download and install a free defragger and run that.

Slow pc and no sound icon


I believe you had too many files on your computer. I advise to run deframenting your computer every week to speed up your computer and also run scan disk for error to fix some problems. Just go to program files>accessories>system tools>disk defragment. If still slow I advise to reinstall your operating system or ever upgrading it to windows 7 or vista.

My computer is very slow and I need not much time left standing


The reasons for a computer being slow could be either that you have a full hard drive low memory or possibly and more likely you have malware on it. first thing to do is run and anti malware program like Malware Bytes
Download the free version and allow it to update and run a scan. once this has been done your PC should run a lot faster.

If not check your hard drive free space if it is below 15% you need to delete some of your old files and programs to free up some more

My laptop is very slow...


1st off - do a restore on the computer to bring it back to factory settings. This will clean it up and speed it up as well. 2nd you need more ram . Ram is very cheap and Vista needs lots of ram to run.
Thishis should solve your problem. Total cost to you is about $50.00

Win vista problem with ares ultra


If I can decipher what you mean, it sounds like you're using Windows Vista Ultimate, and it is reverting to Reduced Functionality Mode. This means the installation of Windows Vista that you're running failed to pass validation with Microsoft. Please see this page for Microsoft's steps to remedy this issue.
