Question about Computers & Internet
There are many reasons why a laptop could be running slow, usually its a lot of junk that has accumulated over time, fragmented HD, HD errors, viruses, etc.
The first thing to do is to empty all the contents of the TEMP folder. One way to do this is to open Internet Explorer, Click on Tools > Internet Options > General Tab > Under Browsing History, click the delete button.
Next, you can click on My Computer icon in desktop, right click over C: drive and in the General tab, click on the Disk Cleanup button. After this, go to the Tools tab and under Error Checking, click the Check Now button. Once that is done, go to the section below, which is Defragmentation and click that button. This may take a while, depending upon the size of your hard disk.
I would also recommend you do a full virus scan with your AntiVirus software with the latest updates. All this should help you get the PC going faster.
There are two tools available on the net, which I would really recommend:
1. RegistryBooster 2
2. SpeedUpMyPC 3

The computer may be running slow for a lot of
reasons. A simple quick fix is: Make sure you have an updated anti-virus & malware,
run a full scan, delete all the browsing data, temporary files, cookies, make a
disk cleanup and defragmentation. This may help a lot, let me know how it works out.
