Yannii, Please go to www.download.com and search for dfrag tools. Use one of these free tools and see better results on defragmentation. As regards the slow speed of your computer, this is most likely due to the over blown Windows Registry. Read the link below carefully and follow it. Even I was suffering from the same problem last year. My laptop used to take 25 to 30 minutes to boot. And was sluggish even after that. I use Ccleaner and it has been galloping eversince.

Hello Mike, Hi, may I suggest you try first to defrag your hard drive, Im sure when you power on your PC, the hard disk led keeps on blinking, your hard drive may have developed bad tracks and sectors, this slow moving process tends to go forever.

Defragmenting and checkdisk can find faults and bad sectors and tracks that slows down the performance of your PC.

Reformatting should be done if your defragmentation procedure fails to speed up your PC.

Try to run an antivirus program, which may help speed up your PC by detecting viruses, that tends to load forever, or slow down the booting process.

You can do a bit of detective work and run MSCONFIG.EXE froma command prompt and go through that - particularly the boot, services and startup entries. The startup entries in particular - as from there you can select what is and what is started at startup - and a process of elimination can maybe help you track down the problem. 'Registry cleaners' may help - but often are more problematic themselves thn they are 'fixers'. You could edit the registry by hand, using regedit, but that is NOT recommended unless you really know what you are doing. Do note that if you change the start-up programs (i.e. change their enable state), you will get a warning at start-up that you are running a custom start-up using msconfig.
As a last resort, a fresh installation of Windows will fix things. Running a virus checker might also be a good idea.

My Toshiba satellite Laptop is very slow


i had the same problem with my computer. it may be that you have downloaded too many things. it loads onto your RAM storage, (computer files), and when it gets full, it goes onto the harddrive, (where you access files and things). clear up internet files and anything you don't need. if that is stilll slow upgrade your RAM. it fixed my pc

Window stops in middle of session have to shut down and restart computer????


hi im wesley. you might have a virus of some sorts or try defragmenting your pc it will also speed it up as this sometimes happens when you have alot of things on your pc and when you delete stuff and put files on all the time it slows down alot and can hang because the files are mixed up on the hard drive. to defragment go to start-all programs-accesories-system tools-defragment then say analyze then defragment.

Can I hold DHHS accountable for the burden they put upon me? If not, is there someone that can be held accountable? What can I logically and honestly do to remedy this prob. I explained my prob below! I was getting QMB part of Mainecare and my spouse at the time we were dating but living together was getting the QI part of Mainecare. We are both disabled and only get SSDI. However being honest and do our best to always do the right thing we go to DHHS office on Griffin RD in Bangor, ME within a month of us getting married where the worker we saw tells us we don't qualify for anything but the min of FS and both Q1 part of Mainecare and serious voice tells us to divorce. I have made a few trips within last months to same DHHS. One sends us to Eastern Area of Aging to see if there were secondaries we can get. This past Monday hubby and I went to our appt with Eastern Area of Aging & was told they strongly believe I could get spousal exclusion also warning it could mean my hubby loses help but because it was a volunteer a newer one at that she couldn't tell me definitely cause she didn't know the formula as she still learning; tells us to go back to DHHS to ask about spousal exclusion. So I go back to DHHS this past Thurs and got a worker with more smarts, heart with approx 10 yrs working for DHHS tells me I qualify for spousal exclusion and took the time to answer all my questions. I told her I had QMB till hubby and I married June 2016 & shared with her what the DHHS worker told us when hubby and I went in to show marriage certificate to update the change. She looked at me with shocked eyes and dropped jaw in bewilderment. Then says I would of never lost it as I would of qualified for spousal exclusion from the day we married. And had it been her that we got when we were being honest wouldn't have only told me about spousal exclusion but would of applied me as she could see I have major medical problems that is too much a financial burden for my hubby and I. She also told me I was to submit all unpaid bills even if monthly making payments were being made. I thought I was only to submit bills I paid in full or on a payment plan. So started Thurs night on a Medical Bills Tracker to go through all the medical bills and sort things out. I haven't even put a dent in the pile and see I'm responsible for just over 6K I'm predicting once done I could be closer, if not over, 10K. In collections is currently 1K but once done with pile amount in collections could be closer to 2K or more. So the mess has impacted my credit and if things were done by professionals I wouldn't be losing my hair stressing over my medical bills and how it declines my credit. I know I'm in a small group that actually pay their medical bills any and all bills to be honest! I am disabled and get SSDI. Worked 1992-2013 a lot of times working 2 jobs! Dr in 2013 practically dragged me out of work as was just diagnosed with Hep C, CKD Stage 3 & liver disease! I also have depression disorder, panic attacks, anxiety disorder! So even this incompetent DHHS worker putting extra financial burden on me unnecessarily affects those things. I am trying to do the right thing but get kicked down by the very people that are paid to help me. What are my rights and can I fix this at a faster pace then not even fixed it by the day I die?
