You can start by checking the Event Viewer. Right click My Computer / Manage. Check System for Errors and Warnings. They can be very technical, but most likely there is some event. Check Application as well. There is a Filter option under View. Leave Warning and Error checked.
A helpful tip.
like not enough resources such as RAM and CPU. Check Performance in
disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type
MSConfig. Startup tab and uncheck
anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make
Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup.
Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.
ur boot files are being corrupted either there is a trojen or a virus that's preventing the Win from working.
do this...when u switch on the machine press F8 function key and try to load in Safe Mode. if u can do that then get Tuneup Utility from my website (download page) www.sureshayyar.110mb.com
install and run the cleanup process...1n click maint in that does a good job...use all the toos in that and get ur machine to working....
else u need to boot from a Win CD try do a repair of ur OS....
else let me know...we go to plan B
Have you looked to see what programs are running in the background? Open your Task Manager and look and see what is taking up the most CPU cycles. If it is a task that is running in the background try ending the process and see if that helps. Then look in the Start menu and see if anything new has been added.
You didn't state what the software was that you were installing. I would need that information to look and see if there are any known issues with it.
Disable the start up features on the wireless, if it has an enable/disable function. This will increase the boot speed, but you will have to manually turn on the wireless or search wireless connections manually. This is a common annoyance, doesn't quite qualify as problem, but there is no win win situation with this. Either you have slow start up or manual wireless.
Try using Mozilla firefox, which loads straight to Google. If that works use that for internet. If it does work, try uninstalling windows Internet Explorer and reinstalling it. Also make sure you download all windows updates as this will fix most issues with IE!
It's very possible that you have a memory chip that is malfunctioning or failing. Also you can try opening the start menu and deleting everything out of the start up section under programs. Another thing you can do is, go to filehippo.com and download CCleaner. Run it under the cleaner and registry tabs. It's a very useful tool and will help clean out the built up **** in your machine. Try these and let me know if it persists.
What Operating System do you run? If it is Windows XP SP2 (Home Edition or professional), here are some things you can do to speed up your system. 1st you should remove all programs that are not required from the start menu. Start > Run > Msconfig > startup tab. Unselect all that are not necessary. Also Right click on my computer > properties > Advanced > Performance settings > Adjust for best performance. This should speed things up a little. I would recommend atleast 512 MB of memory to run Windows XP and its applications decently. You should consider an upgrade.
Its slow beccause it sounds like it needs cleaning out lot of things might be slowing it up like Viruses sounds like heaps in there.
