You have a lot of programs that are running at the same time unnecessarily.
The first thing you should do is to install this
http://www.iobit.com/advancedwindowscareper.html
Run it, it will delete a lot of junk and don't close *** after that. Go to Utilities / Admin Tools / IObit uninstaller and in there identify every program that you don't use (google them if you never heard about them - you don't want to uninstall a driver or something similar) and uninstall it. Next go to Startup Manager and untick every program that is not absolutely required to start (drivers and security). Now run ASC again and reboot - you pc should be fast again.

Why is my mac slow


Is it slow in general or in certain areas.For instance is it slow processing or slow connecting to the internet.
In your Utilities package, you have an Activity Monitor which may help you detect what is happening.
You can try an app like Disk Doctor and/or Memory Clean which could help.
You could also run an anti-virus app like ClamX and/or Bitdefender.
Hope this helps with your problem.

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 .

Run your anti virus and anti malware programs. If you do not have a anti malware program go to cnet.com and download a free anti malware program. It sounds as if you have a virus on your computer

My Acer Aspire 3680 is extremely slow, breaking up, giving error messages. Started yesterday but has gotten continually worse since then.


Have you installed any new programs recently?
Definitely sounds like spy-ware or a virus, check your system out. If you don't have anti-virus software installed, go here:http://shop.trendmicro.com/trialpay/
and run the anti-virus scan. I'm guessing you've got an infectected PC. For a free anti-virus program, you can go here: http://free.avg.com/download-avg-anti-virus-free-edition If after running the anti-virus scan your machine doesn't run better, please post back for more suggestions and best of luck to you!
