It is most possibble that your computer is infested with a virus. You can try to search for malwares with a good anti virus but if the registry is infested then it will be bettter to have the OS reinstalled and before the drivers are installed please install a good antivirus with a daily update.
This must get yourr system faster. Please dont forget to clean all temp files, cookies and defragment to see if there is any improvementt before yo reinstall.

Why does it take my computer a long time to boot up, loading, and shutting down?


indicates that then hard drive is on the way out
first step is to save everything onto an external hard drive
then take it to a computer repair shop for an inspection
check how much space is on the hard drive because if you have a lot of junk on it , that slows down the start up and shut down p[rocesses
you can go to device manager and do a defrag of the hard drive to free up space

How to speedup my internet through Bsnl WLL?


Depends- when is it exactly slow?is it while surfing the internet, or when running programs? either way, you can make it go faster. If your internet is slow, you should scan your computer for viruses and spyware using suitable programs.Slow internet happens for various reasons.The most effective method for speeding up a comp where possible is just format the hard disk. Also check to see if you have any useless programs. Uninstall them. Run disk cleanup.If you still experience the same problem I would advise you to delete the computer after backing it up, and then installing a new copy of Windows. if your problem is with programs running slowly- I can advise you to download this software, which can extremely help- CCleaner. Follow all these and check your Internet speed here Scanmyspeed.com once it will sounds better..

What makes my laptop slow after booting


FIXING A SLOW COMPUTER
A slow computer could be caused by a number of things - 1. Insufficient RAM (memory) - if your computer has less than 512Mb of RAM then increase it to at least 1Gb of RAM. 2. Registry problems - clean and repair the registry, it will contain unused registry keys. Use programs such as Registry Mechanic, Microsoft RegClean etc. 3. Uninstall/remove unused programs, this will also free up hard disk space. 4. Not enough hard disk space - swap file space may need to be increased if Windows hasn't been configured to manage it. 5. Install latest Windows updates. 6. Update virus definition files and scan computer for viruses, Trojans, malware etc. 7. Clear the Internet cache for faster browsing. 8. Hard disk maintenance is required at least once a month to keep it functioning efficiently. Run the following programs - Disk Cleanup - removes temporary files that are no longer used and to recovers hard disk space. Disk Defragmenter to make fragmented files into contiguous files and therefore the hard disk access is faster.

Computer very slow, jumps, drops out, switches programs and can't upload the kaspersky updates which the computer says is due to a broken connection. The computer is a mess.


Slow down of the computer can be found when the booting time of the system increases. You can remove and clean all the background files running. Check your hard disk to find the free space available.
suggest you scan your computer.

you have to many programs installed on your desktop that are taking up space... also you could have a virus that can hide from the defrag..... also the F-secure program could have something to do with it.. they take up a lot of space
