Computer runs slow

When trying to open aol, my computer is ridiculously slow. I am running Mcafee and an aol virus scan. Is either one of this causing the machine to run slow? I do not have a lot of programs loaded, just the ones that came with the machine

Hey I face the same problem too! It's really irritating. When it gets real bad, what I do is just run a <a rel='nofollow' href="http://www.pcaholic.com"> computer check up</a>. That usually does the trick in solving all these issues. You might want to give it a try too, i believe its free at <a rel='nofollow' href="http://www.pcaholic.com"> http://www.pcaholic.com</a>.

It doesnt have to do ( AOL or McAFEE ) causing your computer to run slow . let me ask you a couple of question so I can pin point your problem .
1 do you downloads photos & music to your pc?
2 do you surf a lot thru the internet ?
3 do you perform the DISK CLEANUP ? if not , one of the main problem to have a PC to run slow is the MEMORY CAPACITY of your PC . let me know so I can show you some steps to improve your PC . thanks and hope it helps

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.

How to speed up a very very very slow computer in XP?


First of all if you have Symantec Norton Antivirus Products or McAfee Antivirus Products remove them. They are core hogs and will slow your system down. Replace them with a simple and smooth FREE Antivirus such as AVG, AVAST or Microsoft Security Essentials. Secondly if you have anything on your system from AOL remove it. It too eats up resources. You might have a virus that is slowing you down also so after you install the FREE antivirus program run a scan. You'll be amazed at what the antivirus you pay for missed. Download and Install MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan. After you've done all the above Open My Computer and Right Click on your C: Local drive and select Properties, then Tools, then Defrag Now. When the Disk Defragmenter opens click on Analyze and it will tell you when it finishes if you need to Defrag the hard drive. If you need to Defrag the drive click Defragment. This will take more than an hour to run so be patient.

My computer run slow


try to click on start->run->type"msconfig"->then in starup then disable all programs you want but dont disable critical sys programs. This will make sure that all these programs will not star with windows. It will free up memory. You can also try to reinstal System or buy more memory.
