By very weird do you mean like part of the screen opens like sort of a ghost and then the rest slowly appears? I would first suggest running anti spyware and anti adware on your pc. Spyware, malware and adware can greatly reduce your speed. If you don't have any, I would suggest Spybot Search and Destroy and AdAware. These are both free. If you have some kind of programs like these make sure you have the latest definitions and that you run them at least once a week. Also, when is the last time you did a defrag on your hard drive? A defragmented hard drive can also slow down your pc. I'll add a comment with the links for Spybot and AdAware in case you don't have them. I use several because no one program catches everything. Back in a minute.

Slow to open


Hi,
Is this slow when start up the computer or slow when you open an application?
If slow when start up the computer, the reason is your computer has too much start up programs and services. All these software, services is required to open as start up of the computer, that reduce speed of log on/ start up process. You can speed up by try these steps:
1. Start - Run: type: msconfig and hit enter.
2. The System Configuration Window will appear. Click on Selective Startup. Then go to Start up tab, untick the process that you think it not importance for start up such as Acrobat Reader...ect. 3. Then hit apply and restart your computer. You can disable all of start up services.
If slow when you try to open an application, then the reason is your computer busy work with some other higher piority process. If you think that you need this application open quicker, you can go to Task Manger and End the task you don't want it run or the task that took a lot of CPU resources.

Hope this will hellp
Thanks for reading.

My computer is slow and the is not reading or burning CD/DVD


Slow computer problem would be different then that non reading disks. Slow computer could happen in many cases, a virus is taking up all the memory, or defragmented hard disk, programs that required more memory and cpu speed. CD, DVD could fail to read due to loose cable, BIOS setup or damaged drive.

Comp running real slow and diskdefragment wont work


Hi Iharms,

I can help you with this but i need a bit more information first.

How long have you had this pc?

How many little icons can you see at the very bottom right of your screen? (on the blue bar near the clock, just a number would be OK)

How long has it been since you reformatted?

do you get any weird messages when you use the computer?

What virus protection do you use?


thanks in advance and i just want to mention that at the very least we will get your pc running alot faster.
