Speed up your computer by:

-- cleaning system junk
-- optimizing computer services
-- optimizing internet
-- repairing registry
-- defraging registry

do these things with some secure tool such as Intel Software Partner Reginout.

Do you have anti-spyware software on the machine? I recommend two because none of them detect everything.

Try these two that are free and good. If they get the pc running better make sure you tell her to ues the update function and then run them at least once a week:

Spybot: Search & Destroy:
http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html

AdAware: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/products/ad_aware_free.php

Also do a defragment on the hard drive. Go to Start>programs>accessories>system tools>disk defragmenter.

Do all these and let me know how it's running. If this solves the problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If not, don't rate it yet just add a comment and I'll be happy to help you further. Thanks.

Jeff

P.S. After you download the two programs, run the updates before you check for spyware. And with Spybot, after you're done checking and removing, go the immunize section and make sure to use the immunize function. It will protect you against the known spyware.
If you need help with these just holler.Thanks. Let me know what happens.

    Hey Molly - did you already try these? if so what happened? Just wondering because you didn't rate it as fixed so something must still not be right. What's up?

PC has gotten very slow


You should search Google for Norton Removal Tool and run it or you can also download Revo Uninstaller to do the same. Also you may already be infected so make sure the system is cleaned up.

I purchased this computer, 2 gig memory last year. I had just put in Norton and it is running SUPER slow. How can I reset this computer to run normal? This is not the laptop


I have known several people who have had similar issues with norton, It seems to be quite resource hungry, if you really want to keep norton then I would suggest a RAM upgrade to give your machine more power, alternatively, you could try another antivirus, I use Microsoft Security Essentials and it works well for me.

However, check to see if norton is running a system scan, this will almost definately make your machine run slower.

Emachines is very slow, takes forever to warm up


You may need to perform a virus scan, I would recommend downloading and installing Avast Anti-virus 5 free.

Click here to download it.

Click the download now button when the screen loads.

Register the product it is all free and update to the current day.
Perform a complete system scan.

It is possible that your computer is slowing down due to thermal throttling, whereby the computer slows down to produce less heat because it is getting too hot.

Especially if you have had this computer for about a year, dust prevents proper airflow, get it serviced by a computer technician. He/She will clean it out and get it back to it's new condition.

Remember that is this day and age one should have at least 2GB or RAM installed in your computer at the fastest supported RAM speed. DDR2 800 being the fastest DDR2 RAM and DDR3 1333 Being the fastest stock RAM.

All the best!

Emachine running SLOW and Freezes - 1 year old


Here are some suggestions: First of all . Do you have an anti virus installed on your husband's machine ? Viruses can slow the machine and even kill it permanently ( so be careful) . Just install an anti virus and you'll solve the problem . If you are already have an anti virus , then just run a full system scan and watch what will happen and follow the recommended steps that will be given by the anti virus [ There are a lot of anti virus softwares in the market ] but if you suspect that your system is already infected i recommend you to use (Avast professional edition) because it can make a boot scan , that means after you install it , it will ask you if you want to make a boot scan , just agree with it and it will reboot the system and start a boot time scanning , meanwhile you should watch it and give it the right orders if it detected a virus infection . Here is another suggestion : There is a certain software you could install it . This software can help your machine and detect any problem on your husband's computer but viruses . this software is called (TuneUp utilities) . You can download it from here www.tune-up.com . just try it and you'll be satisfied with result . if that didn't help just contact me again and i'll help you as possible as i can .
good luck .

How to rid my computer of viruses


Use any Anti-virus scanner.
To start with you can use any trialware version of prominent anti-virus companies, like
norton
mcafee
bit defender
avg

you can try download.com to find free and trial based anti-virus programs.

Updating your virus scanner definitions regularly would minimize chances of getting infected again if your virus scanner is good.

Replacing new security protection


Yes.

The best way to do so is to download the Norton Removal Tool.

Here's a link:

Select the version (year) you have.

Save it to your desktop. When the download is complete, run (doubleclick) the program on your desktop.
