Recently my comp has been getting slower and slower is their any way i can stop certain things running and if i can how do i know what i need to keep and what i can stop or remove. Do you know what im trying to say not the programmes as such but whats running in the background how do i find out whats running and then how do i know what to remove.
Hope you can understand what im trying to say, i hope so anyway. If not dont worry just thought id ask as my comps been getting slower and slower. Its slow anyway but it seems to take longer to come on and seems to be slower than normal.

Re: regarding whats running on my comp
A good idea is to get Spybot - Search & Destroy and AdAware Free. Run these once a week, and do a disk defragment on all hard drives about once every 3 months. Get someone to help you edit the startup list on the msconfig command (open the "Run" box and type "msconfig", then hit enter).

sometimes the dvd can be explored but the reader wont read it when its a certain kind of dvd... u may need to get a certain kind of program that can read that dvd... if u have up dated ur computer and didnt read anything about the up dates and what all the cause and effects are then that may have been one of them to boot ur dvd reader half way out. i have had this happen before and had to download a program that would read it....good luck and i hope this helps
If your machine, using a multimedia application, it stops suddenly to play a CERTAIN song ["it stops playing certain song after a few seconds"] that means the file [the song, I mean] is broken/damaged/corrupted. So - using other words - cannot be read by the application itself. All you need to do is to get another file [the same song but from a DIFFERENT SOURCE] hoping the new file will be in good condition.

As for the running slower on windows vista, you need to actually turn off all the graphics on vista and roll it back to the 2000 interface.
But first, however, try a system restore to when it worked properly. If that doesn't work, then if you have the windows vista cd, load that into the system (even if it is a recovery cd, and fix the boot record). Try this first, then, if it doesn't work, post a response.
Hi, Press Ctrl, Alt and Del and click on the processes tab, this will show you what processes are running in your computer at the time. If you want to stop certain processes from starting up with the computer then in the run box type msconfig, this will bring up the system configuration utility, click on the startup tab and you will see what starts up with the computer, in that tab you can disable or enable processes. Be careful what you are doing as you can mess certain settings up if disable the wrong process.
Regarding your issue you may try to call your computer manufacturer and get a cd copy for your system driver. All drivers can be found on that disc. When you have the disc just run it and it will automatically give you the drivers you need to install.
