Slowness can be caused by viruses.

Run a virus scan and see what comes up.
If there are viruses on the computer, you may want to consider Restoring your computer to factory settings.

But before you do that
Run a virus scan; go to Symantec and run it or download AVG free.

If you decide to restore to factory settings, I will be glad to help you. Understand, you will loose everything on the computer, and you will have to run all your programs again, set up your network connection and email. Very time consuming.

My computer download speed is slow even i have high speed fiber connection 200mbps


Goodday, this is difficult to analyze without further information: Did you change anything on your computer? How old is it?
Are you using Wifi or a cable? Be aware that download speeds also depend on the server on the other side, so even if you have the fastest fiber internet, downloads from a slow server may take more time.
Did you check your speed with a special program or website? Search for a speedtest online and try how fast your connection is.
200 mbps means that a 700 MB movie / CD image would take about 28 seconds to download.
Check the bits and Bytes converting about how fast your connections should be.

Good luck,

What is happening with AOL? I have been having lots of pop ups, slow computer and AOL telling me they are having problems? My computer very slow?


Is you computer slow when using software offline? If so, it is either AOL or your internet. Don't judge the speed strictly by going to AOL. Go to Speakeasy Speed Test and test your internet speed. If that shows your internet is running at the speed you are paying for, it si AOL having trouble. You don't say which browser you are using, but most browsers have an option to block pop-ups. Make sure it is on.
Run a virus scan on your PC to see if it is infected. Also defrag your hard drive to speed it up some.

Runs slow on video downloads


Hello Sir,

downloading speed depends on internet connection not on PC specification.

If your transfer is low then downloading will also be low.

Take note that source from which you are downloading also must have reliable connection.


cheers,

My computer speed on the net is extrordinarily slow. checked resource manager and it says 94% memory is being used of 1 GB and all I have open is two web pages. Is there something I can do to reduce memory...


Get the resource manager running and find out what is gobbling up the menory. Find the processes that are high use and stop them one at a time until you see the useage drop.

I had something (whose name has escaped me) that ran itself ever time I booted up. Every time I did this, I would stop that process, and that solved the trouble. I eventually found the source and killed it!

Good luck on finding this evil process ... Please let me know what your specific issue was so I can make note of it.

Does processor speed affect the way your webcam works My webcam is not very REAL TIME it is very slow. MY processsor is old....2.80 ghz and I have 1.18gb of ram. Is this not sufficient?


Hello Flecia, hi;
The processor speed do someway affect the speed of your webcam, but the most common reason why webcam gets so slow is the program that shows the video. Skype has good quality videos, depending also on the speed of your internet connection and the graphics card installed on your PC.
Check also for computer viruses, these programs and malwares slows the PC down. Well a clean PC is fast enough, check also your hard drive, you may need to defrag it every month. Your Ram is sufficient enough, and your processor being a 2.8 ghz is still fast.
So here are the things you may need to do.
  1. Defrag your hard drive every month. or better, reformat your PC every 6 months to a year.
  2. Check for computer viruses and malwares.
  3. Install Skype (which I recommend) for your webcam online software.
  4. Get a fast Internet connection (if you are willing), atleast DSL minimum is 512KBPS.
  5. Get also a high resolution webcam. (if possible)
hope this helps.
