IT IS REALLY SLOW WHAT CAN I DO


1. Update your anti-virus software. If it fails to update, you probably have a computer-virus.
2. Disconnect from the Internet. Does it now seem to run better? If so, then you probably have a computer-virus.
3. Run the updated anti-virus software, to scan for viruses.
4. Tell us more about the computer:
* manufacturer
* model
* CPU (Intel? AMD?) speed?
* how much RAM in your computer?
* how "old" is the computer?
* desktop or laptop?
* when is the last time that you took a can of compressed-air and gave a "blow-job" to remove all the dust from insdie the computer?
* how "old" is the disk-drive? Is it "failing" ? What speed? 4200 RPM? 5400 RPM 7200 RPM?
* when was the last time that you DEFRAG'd that disk-drive?
* Windows XP? Vista? 7?

use these steps:
1- reinstall your operating system (OS).
2- after the OS installed , download and install a powerful anti virus(with latest updates) (like NOD32 ANTI Virus or Kaspersky etc)

3- start a full scan (in anti virus options).
4- reinstall your OS again and enjoy fast speed.
NOTE:always remember to use an updated anti virus on your Laptop.
and if your laptop worked slow again use this way:
1- start "RUN" from start menu.(if you are using windows 7 go to accessories)
2- enter "msconfig".
3- go to startup tab.
4- disable some installed software (like yahoo messenger or ID Manager etc) in start up but be careful not to disable windows applications.

How to clean my computer virus. my cmptr is slow.


HI,
The computer can be cleaned from virus, by using a good anti virus software and a combination of anti spyware and malware softwares. Sometimes one anti-virus program may not be good enough to protect your PC. The best approach is to first back up all your important information like documents and pictures to a DVD or external harddrive.
You can use the following tools:

The problem is your lack of RAM. Anti virus programmes are often quite heavy & are running all the time. Windows updates & service packs eventually start to consume more of resources & any other programmes you have running are using RAM. Add an extra 1GB or as much as you can. RAM is cheap & easy to install.

The pc run slow though I optumize the hardrive and checked for viruses.


No. The pentium 2 is too slow to run Windows XP and be very useful. It will run XP, but it won't be an enjoyable experience.

Many things can cause a computer to bog down over time, including how well it was maintained, how often disk clean ups and defrags were performed. All Windows updates installed. Anti Virus kept updated. Too many programs loading when the computer starts. Unnecessary services running. Spyware, etc.

If you want a well performing laptop it would be best to start with fresh install of Windows.
