Lately, my HP G60 PC Notebook has been running slowly. The startup is normal, but any program I attempt to run takes a long time to load. This includes Internet Explorer, and any other basic programs. How can I solve this?
Go to run or start search and write temp ,hit enter.and delete all the temporary files...
open your internet explorer..go to tools nd internet options and at top go to advanced settings and uncheck the option which says enable third party browsing....click on ok or apply...
close the internet explorer ..restart the notebook...
the os will run much faster now

There are several reasons for slow boot time, things you should check.
1- How many programs are in startup?Limit startups to only what is needed, the rest can start using manual or delayed.
2-Malware= Try scanning with Malwarebytes its free :)
3-Virus= Run a complete scan of you hard drive there are many free anti virus programs to choose from.
4- Defrag- your drive often at least monthly.... again many freeware programs to choose from.
Doing this maintenance should help the computer run much better and speed up boot time.
Disable Unwanted Programs from Running at Windows Startup Running too many programs at the Windows startup reduces the system performance. To speed up Windows 7, you have to disable the unwanted third-party programs from running at Windows startup.
Click Start ' Type MsConfig and press ENTER
Click Startup tab.
Uncheck the entries of the programs that you do not wish to run at system startup.
Do the same for the entries in the Services tab.
Click Apply ' OK.
Restart the computer when prompted.
To fix this problem instantly use PCFresher system utility.
no goal stated at all.
what are you attempting? sharing files , printers, or remote desktop mode.

then both must have shares turned on.
why now post to microsoft, if you are connected ok to the router

I can understand your issue. When you say your computer is running slow it means many of the programs running in the background. Those unwanted programs needs to be stopped. I can understand that you ran de-fragmentation but that doesn't help you. Normally de-fragmentation is for "physically organizing the contents of the disk to store the pieces of each file close together".
Kindly follow the steps
Click on Start->Run->msconfig. Which will take you to System Configuration Utility.
Click on Startup->Disable startup items. Click on Apply and Close. Restart your computer.
Next step run disk cleanup utility. To do that click on start->run->cleanmgr.
Run Clean up utility for all the drives.
Finally restart the computer and try it
That should work and revert if you have any clarifications.
The first thing I'd try to do is see what programs are running at startup. To do this Click on Start--> Run -->type "msconfig" without the quotes.
Click on the Startup Tab and view all the programs that are running at startup. As for deselecting which programs run at startup you can directly ask me which ones you can disable. For the most part all instant messengers and most program files can be disabled.
Yes! I would not recommend anything below 2GB at minimum. I have one laptop with 2GB and one with 3GB: they both open programs and browse the internet very quickly. Even with just two programs open (Internet Explorer and Outlook 2007) it uses 1.1GB of memory.
Just pick your model and they recommend the memory to pruchase. TIP: order with next day shipping - it's only $10. The free shipping takes 14 days. So unless you're patient (I'm not) the $10 many be worth it.
