Hello,
There are things that you can do to make it run faster.
1. Do a disc clean up.
Click on the Windows Pear or Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Clean Up
Delete all unnecessary and temp files. Restart your computer.
2. Run an anti-virus scan.
3. Defrag your computer. You can find defrag in the same place where you find Disk Clean Up.
4. Update Drivers - you can use RadarSync to automate it to save your time and headaches.
LAST SOLUTION:
Do a complete Operating System Reinstallation.

Let me know if you have any questions or if you need more help.

How to speed up computers.


**1The main reason which slowdowns system is VIRUS ATTACK.
Powerful tool to avoid this is installing Anti Virus.
Anyhow installing a anti virus is not sufficient.You need update the anti virus continuously(once for a week)
Updating means:-Hackers will generate the viruses and they will upload those viruses to internet data base every day.Which enters our computer when connected internet.The companies which provides the anti virus software will scans those viruses and they update those virus name our anti virus data base so that if any programs by those virus names which are in anti virus data base.Anti virus will block those programs.
So It's necessary to update the anti virus program continuously.

If you have genuine Windows operating system you can use "Microsoft Security Essentials" for FREE.



**2The reason which slowdowns PC is creation of unwanted sectors in hard disc.


For this Defragmentation is the best method to clear unwanted sectorsTo defragment the hard disc Select the partition>Right click>Properties>Tools>Defragment disk>Defragment>ok
Watch this...

**3)Another aspect which slow downs the system is creation of error sectors
you can use Check Now option to clear error sectorTo activate Check Now*Select the partition>Right click>Properties>Tools>check nowIt check for error during next reboot


**You can use "CHKDSK" command in DOS(instant check)


**3)You can use Disk Cleanup to delete temporary files,offline pages,log files, queued and error reports(These files are not important and files consumes much memory which can't cleared by us so we need to use Disk Cleanup.
To use this thisSelect the partition>Right click>Properties>select Disk

Cleanup (Disk Cleanup can be used for C: drive only effectively(Because temporary files,offline pages,log files, queued and error reports are saved in C: only)


**Options and Menu's are with respect to Windows7 & Windows related operating systems.

Thank you have a nice day

Getting error messages when trying to load the cd on my computer running windows xp. error message is 1334 and avg firewall comes out with a trojan virus. Is my cd bad, can it be replaced? I have been...


Hello sharon! My name is Kandi and I am an Expert with Fixya and also an Employee of Intuit. I troubleshoot TurboTax and supervise agents who handle customer service calls. I am very familiar with the error that you are talking about and it has nothing to do with your TurboTax disk. In order to install your disk, you need to remove your AVG virus software and reinstall it later when your finished filing your taxes. There is a problem with the older versions of AVG thinking that TurboTax is a virus and it will block the installation of the program. Go to your control panel, and remove AVG completely. Reboot your pc. Run disk cleanup (Start, programs, system tools & click on disk cleanup) and check all available boxes when asked. Then run disk defrag (located in the same place as disk cleanup as noted above). Then put your TurboTax disk back in your pc and try to install again. If you cannot get the disk to install, you can reach us for customer support by going to www.turbotax.intuit.com. Click on the support link and then move all the way down almost to the bottom of the page and look for the box on the right side that says "Contact us". Choose the option that best describes your problem and it will forward you to your choice of contact method (we have chat email and phone service all available at no charge to you). We are open from 5am until 9pm pst.

My computer is really slow going into differnt sites....the compressor fan is slow to start up...had my computer stripped down and tuned up, but it's still slow...they said the cpu is showing its age,...


Your computer going slow could be for the following reasons: 1 Not enough RAM - remove unwanted files by cleaning the disc. Also defragment the computer. Increase the RAM 2 Virus - remove the virus 3 If you do the above you will see the improvement and no need to have a new cpu

MY COMPUTER IS SLOW


Greetings my friend, regarding on your problem try to see if you have installed and update an anti virus software in your computer/Laptop then if is it installed then run the anti virus and scan and clean all your drives in your computer otherwise install and update your anti virus software. Also try to check also the files that you have stored in your drives. Delete those files in the recycle bin. Also defrage your drives. If you are using Windows XP then follow this: To defrage your drives go to start button then all programs then accessories then system tools and then click Disk Defragment. then follow the steps given by the computer. Reasons why our computer/Laptop runs slow cause of some viruses/worms and overcrowded files particularly picture and music files. Also too much program installed in your computer/Laptop. Need to have a good management systems in your computer to maintain your desire accuracy and speed of your computer/Laptop.
