Mostly laptop runs slow issue occurs due to broken Windows registry entries. Fixing registry will help you to boost up your laptop. You need to download and install a Registry Cleaner program to fix corrupt or broken registry entries. To download a reliable registry cleaner, go to famous website download.cnet and search there Reginout. Which I personally use and recommend the friends. After downloading run all of its tools one by one except Internet Optimizer, to clean all the junks and registry errors from your computer.
Duce,how much memory (RAM) do you have.when a computer gets slow it have to little memory.is it a 32x the computer can only take 4 GB memory.is it a 64x ca:8-12.so i suggest you upgrade the memory and look over if you use the programs you got uninstall them never used and only rarely used. http://www.wisecleaner.com/ here do yo find a good cleanigprogram.
First you need to go into your documents and get rid of any files or folders you don't need. Then go into the control panel and remove any programs you don't use. That includes all those tool bars with search engines that you probably have and don't need. Go into internet connections and delete all temporary internet files and cookies. After you have done all of that you should defragment your computer.

The question is whether Vista is slow or the Internet. Vista needs to be cleaned if you do not have a good cleaning software program I advise this one for simply cleaning of files that are no longer needed left over installations etc, and it cleans the registry and allows you to see startup programs and other things that prevent computer slow downs. Be sure to also if you decide not to download the free cleaner program that you go to start-run-then type in msconfig and select any programs in the startup other than antivirus and click on disable for now. If when you restart your computer does fine then go ahead and repeat the process and select delete this time, this will increase performance considerably. Click Here to download ccleaner it is free. Thanks for using FixYa! please post a comment if this assisted you in any way. Also gather all of your files personal you want to keep and save them to disk or a USB stick or an external source. This will free up the hard disk.
Now in relations of the router since this is question is applied to the router section. Unplug the router and turn of the computer. Wait about 25 to thirty seconds restart them both. The Internet connection is determined by your service and has nothing to do with being slow unless your computer is bogged down or does not have enough memory or a good graphics card as well. Upgrade these and check hard drive space delete unwanted programs also. One other suggestion is to upgrade to Win 7 Vista is quirky to say the least. If you do not have the memory or other resources to run Win 7 I would consider Win XP even know they are closing out their updates it is less draining on your computers resources.
