Hello maxtheman,

There are many reasons why a PC could be running slow, usually its a lot of junk that has accumulated over time, fragmented HD, 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. If you do not have one, I recommend AVG AntiVirus. Its free as well ;) 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

Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. Before you assign a rating, please make sure that the issue is resolved or you are satisfied. If not, please post back as to what you did, and/or any other questions you may have, and I will try to assist you as best I can. Please do not assign an ‘Inappropriate’ or ‘Thanks for trying’ rating if your issue is not resolved after the first response itself, as sometimes a bit of to and fro dialogue may be necessary before we can find a fix or an answer to your query.

If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Cheers!

Tip

Game slowing down at random times


  • Many users while playing a game on there computer seem to notice that it slows down at random times throughout game-play, This common on most computer as users seem to forget about other applications running on there computer.
  • If your CPU is not fast enough and you are running many applications while your game is running you will notice the game isn't responding as fast as it should, The best way to solve this is disable all programs which you are not using including MSN messenger and any browser or File sharing/Torrent Application.
  • Also make sure your anti-virus is configured not to scan automatically otherwise it may start scanning while you are in game and cause dramatic lag, Most anti-virus's will provide an gamers profile which you can activate to prevent certain anti-virus features while you are playing your game.

Medal Of Honor -BreakThrough- graphics is not working


If your computer is working when you aren't running the game, then the problem is that your computer is not up to the required spec to run the game. If you look on the game box it will tell you the minimum spec required to run the game.

Does your computer meet the minimum requirements specified on the side of the game box?

Something else may be causing your computer to go slow.
When the game is running slow start up Task Manager.
You can start this by clicking Ctrl Alt Del then clicking on the task manager button.

You are looking for the bottle neck that is causing your system to run slow.
Is the CPU running at or near 100%
Is the Physical Memory Available Counter down below 10,000kb
Is the Hard Disk light constantly flashing

Let me know if you are seeing one or more of these symptoms and may be able to give you some advice on what you can do about it.
