There's a brilliant piece of software called Ccleaner.

You can download for free from Filehippo.com.

Once you've run the cleaner, got all the web garbage off the laptop, Go to the tools menu, select startup and delete all the applications except for antivirus, malware and firewall applications from the start up menu. All programmes will still be available.

Finally, give it a defrag.

Please follow the steps below to make it faster a bit....

Click Start-> Run, type msconfig and click Ok. The System Configuration Utility will start. Now click on Startup tab. You will see a list of programs which starts automatically when Windows starts.
In that list, uncheck the program items, which you generally don't use. It will make your computer a little faster.
The above procedure can also be modified a little, that is uncheck all items under Startup tab, restart your computer.
Now check one item at a time, restart computer and test the speed of your computer. This way, you will find the programs, which are making the computer show. Remember to use a pen and paper to take a note about which items you are selecting or unselecting.

Please try one more thing:

Open Start-> Settings-> Control Panel-> System. Click on Advanced tab. Under Performance, click on Settings, click on Adjust for best performance, click Apply and Ok.

Then do this Click->Start->Programes->Accessories->System Tools->Disk Clean Up and select the C:Drive and clean it


Thanks

Very slow operation during e-mail and web connection.


Slow e-mailing and browsing can be due to various reasons. However, you need to optimize your web browser and Internet using some reliable software such as Reginout Optimizer.

If your overall system is slow, see the video link given below to speed up your slow computer.

TRYING TO INSTALL CD THAT CAME WITH TI-89 TITANIUM. COMPUTER SAYS "THE FOLLOWING PAGES HAVE BECOME UNRESPONSIVE. KILL PAGES? " I CLICK YES BUT NOTHING HAPPENS. COMP JUST HANGS. WHATS UP??


Go to the education.ti.com web site and download the TI Connect software. Install it on your computer. If you need the manual download it also. As to pages becoming unresponsive, it may be due to many causes: web browser, site busy, configuration of the computer, too may applications opened.

I can't select to type in a search box on IE


Have you tried rebooting the machine?

Also you should really run Firefox:

IE has SERIOUS security holes so you are opening your data up to bad hackers every time you browse.

My laptop doesn't have audio and sound drivers. it is a Dell latitude D500. How can you help me please?

You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

Fast Page Loads Slow Downloads


it really depends on how far you are from your Router. The farther you go, the weaker the signal gets resulting in slower speeds. Slower speeds will not affect web page load times (they are tiny parts of data) but will definately affect download speeds. You need to be as close to the router as possible or get perfect range. You can put the router at higher elevation in the room to get a better range to start with. Let me know if this works for you.

Fan Running, computer heating, task bar disappearing, everything is slow


It sounds like you've already started doing some things that can help you discover what is causing this problem, and that's good, but before I offer any more ideas, can you please tell me two things:

1. How much RAM (memory) does your computer have?

2. How much total hard disk space does your computer have, and of that, how much is available?
