Good morning. Quite a number of things can cause your computer to run slow. Usually, it's due to the data on your disk being too fragmented or due to a virus or spyware problem. Also, if you have your hard drive too full (80%) or more, it can really slow things down. Do a disk cleanup, then a defrag and see if that helps. If not, go out on the net and download some of the free antivirus programs and run them. They seem to run as good, or better, than most of the paid packages that I've seen. AVG is good as is SpyBot and AdAware. I run all three on a regular basis and have few virus/spyware problems. If those things don't take care of the problem, get back to us for some more ideas.
Best of luck and Have a good day!

My dell is runing slow


Hi,
The most common causes of a slow PC is:
a)It has been infected with viruses and/or spyware
b)You have too many programs or apps installed on your PC which are running in the background and slowing the tasks you are busy with.

Install a good anti-virus program such as AVG free edition. You can download it for free from www.avg.com
Once downloaded run a full scan to detect viruses and spyware which may be slowing your PC down.
Also uninstall any programs which you are not using.

Best wishes,
Graemevm

Try disabling apps in start up by typing msconfig in start menu. Or try booting in safe mode(press f8 key when rebooting) and try doing a virus/malware scan or disable start up apps in safe mode also.!

My hp pavilion a800n's fan won't turn off


It is possible that your computer is simply overheating causing it to slow down. There are a few ways to check this. Enter the BIOS and go to the hardware monitor, what temperatures does the computer read both for the CPU and the Motherboard? Another option is to install and run a program called HWmonitor that can be found here. Report back when you can.

Very slow, slow to downloan anything, very slow to open, slow on everything.


you must have a trojan or virus, you hopefully have an antivirus programme installed, which you will need to run in safe mode (F8 on boot up and select safe mode) and then restart your system.
