Recenly my internet has drastically slowed down. i am being told not enough memory. i keep history and cookies deleated.

It is possible one of the memory chips has stopped working. Certainly deleting history and cookies is good practice but internet activity creates a lot more rubbish that clogs things and slows them down. I suggest you download a cleaning program. If you are into paying for good software CCleaner pro is an excellent tool but the free version is what I have been using for several years. It will also tell you how much of your memory is working. You will be surprised just how much rubbish it clears out after only a couple of internet sessions.

I suggest you do a hard drive defrag. It takes time but it is good housework.

If your computer is just as crisp and quick to boot as usual when not doing internet stuff then it is possible your browser has been corrupted by a virus or something nasty. If your whole computer is slow it could have affected more than just the browser. Certainly carry out a full scan and do it with your virus protection and with another programme. I use Spybot, again the free version.

Maybe your hard drive is nearly full and this will cause warnings and slow things down. Try going to My Computer, right click on the icon and select properties to see how much free space you have. You might need to delete some of the programmes you don't use.

When you have completed your computer housework it will be time to try the internet again. Try doing a speed test - maybe the internet really has slowed due to a fault that has nothing to do with your computer. In this case it is your service provider you need to contact.

You could short circuit the process a bit by either taking your computer to a friend's internet connection or inviting a friend to test yours with a known healthy computer.

Speed Up Windows XP in 5 Steps

Most of the times we observe that our system seems to gradually slow down. Here below i am listing five basic and easy steps
that can help you speed up your Windows XP computer.

1. Clear the Prefetch Folder :The Prefetch Folder contains files that keep getting stored on your computer whenever you launch any program or application. Deleting these files clears up space on your system that might have caused the slow down. Here is how you need to go about it.
Click Run..type Prefetch and click ok. The prefetch folder will open up. Press Ctrl and A together. This highlights the entire contents of the folder. Press the Delete key on the keyboard and confirm the deletion. Once done close the prefetch folder window. Now right click on the recycle bin icon on the desktop and right click and select empty recycle
bin and then confirm the deletion.

2. Disable Startup Items: Certain programs get initiated in the background as soon as your system starts causing the system to slow down. These programs are actually not required on startup but because they get initiated it affects the system performance. Here below i am listing the steps to take care of this issue. Please note this step is very effective and
enhances your system startup speed significantly.
Click Run...type msconfig and click Ok.
The System Configuration utility window will open.
Click on the Startup tab on the top right. Click on the disable all button. Once done, in the list above, you will see many options with checkboxes. Please check any option that indicates your antivirus program software and internet service provider.
Click Apply and Ok. Please restart the system once.Once the system reboots you will get a message coming up saying "You have used the system configuration utility...." Please check the option below that says" Do not show this message again" and click OK.

3.Clear the Temporary Files Folder: Certain temporary files get created as a cache of our activity on the system. Clearing these files from time to time also improves the system speed. Below are the steps for the same.
Click Start..Click Run...Type %temp% and click Ok.The temporary files folder opens.Press Ctrl and A together. This highlights the entire contents of the folder. Press the Delete key on the keyboard and confirm the deletion. Once done close the folder window. Now right click on the recycle bin icon on the desktop and right click and select empty recycle bin
and then confirm the deletion.

4.Clear Cookies and Temp Internet Files: As you browse the internet the images of the pages you view get saved on the system occupying space on the system. Clearing these files increases your system performance while on the internet.
Open Internet Explorer. Click on the Tools menu on top right. Click Internet Options. Click on delete button to delete cookies, files and browsing history. Click Apply and Click Ok.

5.Scan our system for infection: Your system might run slow in case its infected with virus, spyware, malware, adware, trojans etc. Here below i am listing a tool that you can download and run on the system Its free of cost and is very effective. It scans your system and cleans up any infection. Click on the below link to download the tool. The link that opens up also has a tutorial on running the tool in case you face any difficulty.
Download Combofix Tool

With the above 5 steps, your system speed should surely get enhanced.

If you find the information shared by me in the above tip useful, please do rate the tip.
All the Best!!!

Slow speed connection compared to that of friend who uses the same service provider,modem and connection in the same location.mine shows a message undernite the anydata modem icon when connection is on...

You will need to have a better internet (eg. such as wireless, ethernet)
Due to that modems are the very slow connections. Ask your Internet Service Provider (ISP) to see if it he/she can help you with it.

My Compaq Presario S4000V with Intel cpu contantly locks up and freezes causing me to have to shot the whole computer off and then back on. Help

Please immediately do the following:

Update your virus control and do a scan

Use your registry cleaner program if you have one

Use your spyware program if you have one

Go to toolbar>tools>internet options>general tab> and delete all of your cookies

go to Start>All programs>Accessories>system tools>clean disc and do it

If you do not have spyware program, go to and type in shareware spyware program and download a free or share program and run it. The most likely cause of your problem is spyware.

In the lower right corner of your screen do you have alot of little icons? These indicate proggys running in the background and they can slow you down considerably. Please tell me what you have and I will tell yo how we can get rid of them so that they don;t run until you want to use them.

also check your desktop for icons you don;t ever use. you can right click on them and delete them. This does not delete the program.

When all this is done, restart your computer and lets see what you have now.

Maybe a virus

is it the internet that runs slow or everything? either way, go to the following site:

click on the link that says "Scan Now. Its Free!" it will do an online virus scan of your computer, and this should get rid of any viruses you have. You may have to install Java for it to work. If so, it should provide a link to install it. If it doesnt, google "java software" and download the software. it may also be a RAM problem (not enough computer memory) but thats probably not as likely if your computer is new. Also, you can go the task manager and delete all of the processes that you think arent needed (such as itunes, etc. make sure that your user name is under the user name column for each one you are deleting, and DO NOT delete the "explorer" process or any system processes). And this may speed up your computer as well.
