May be a virus or spyware.

Have you run an antivirus scan lately?

Download Spybot Search and Destroy:

And scan your computer.

    You must be referring to Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1). It should be available to you by way of Windows Update.

After my psp go was modified it became slow


to be honest, the PSP Go was the worst thing Sony came up with. The same kind of thing happened with Windows XP Service Pack 3. Microsoft slowed the performance of the computer so people would buy Windows Vista. I believe Sony slowed down the PSP Go so you'd want to get a PSP Vita, but I could be wrong.

Can i'm going in pc game for vista


1. PC games are better supported by Windows XP than Vista.
2. IGI is a large game and and may sometimes play very slow on vista.
3. This is because the game eats up a large amount of your RAM during gaming which slows down background windows processes.

4.However, the better way to play IGI on Vista is to install a NVIDIA Graphics Card - GeForce 8600GT - 256 MB / 512 MB on your computer.

Happy gaming! :)

Vista is slow


The slowness of Vista depends on the components that you have for the computer. Did you buy your computer with Win Vista installed? If you upgraded your computer from XP to Vista, you have to make sure that it is covered by the system requirements of Vista.

If you have a brand new computer with Vista installed in it, then there could be a little glitch on the program. I've used different kinds of Vista (Home Premium, Vista Business and Vista Ultimate) but none of them worked slow. If that's a brand new computer, I would suggest to contact the manufacturer or the reseller.

Have a great day!
