When you boot into windows open the run command on the start menu, type in msconfig and another window will open, on the tab click startup, disable the programmes you don't want to run at start up, things like adobe reader don't need to run at start, be careful not to disable anything you need and then apply and reboot, see how that go's

I bought this phone in the US and now am in India i have unlocked the phone but unfortunately the system has become very slow ...like it takes ten mins to switch on and every button press takes time ......


This phone model isn't a very good phone to begin with, I know from experience. Turning it on will take a while for it to start all the way up, that's normal. The more ringtones/videos/pics/music/texts on it, the slower it gets. If you have many of those try deleting some. If you use this phone for browsing or its mp3 player, that will slow it down a lot as well. Also, there is problems with the Instant Messengers on it, they will make your cell slow, freeze or restart when you use them, so try not to have them on if your cell is already really slow. By the way when your cell first turns on, it will be loading your texts and such; just give it some time, pressing buttons will seem slow and may cause the phone to freeze.

MY COMPUTER IS SO SO SLOW IT TAKES FOREVER TO DO ANYTHING WHY IS THIS? IM NOT EXAGERATING IT TAKES FOREVER TO DO ANYTHING


Delete any start-up programs you don't want or use, this will help make it faster at boot-up. Go to Start Button > Programs > Start Up then delete unused programs.

You can also run disk defragmenter. Which will speed up the process of looking up files, making your computer faster. To access Start Button > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter.

There are other ways to make your computer faster like running anti-virus, spyware/adware programs, registry cleaners, and even re-installing Windows. If you still have problems take it to local computer service shop, not a "big box" store like a geek squad (they think everything is a virus).

I hope I helped your computer be faster. If you have questions please contact me on my profile. Good luck!

Very slow start when my dad turns his laptop on


There are alot of things you can do to speed up XP. The best solution for you to do is to backup all the data and reformat and reinstall windows. This will clear off all the junk and get you started on a clean slate. Windows never runs better then when it is first installed. Short term solutions are, defragmenting the hard drive. Killing processes that are not needed.
Hope that helps,
Lee
