Question about Gateway Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I recently found out that my computer is running at 100% capacity. It has been slow for quite some time but I dont have the expertise to clean it out or find programs in my computer that dont belong or arent necessary to its normal functions.It seems companies will "scan" aka SCAM you into believing that your computer has adware or spyware or is infected to a certain degree but im very interested in just doing the grunt work myselfso that i may be aware of how to destroy the problem now and prevent it from happening in the future. Thank You very much-Sam, San Diego CA.

Running slow


There are lots of little things that slow down a computer, mostly it is programs that are running, but day to day clutter can slow your computer down too. A good thing to try is to download a good program like Ccleaner or Reginout. I personally Use Reginout because i don't believe on free products. It will analyze your computer, and clean up all that it can safely clean, inducing your registry.
It works well, and is 100% reliable.

Computer takes longer to boot up, plus is running very slow


1. To increase PC boot speed:
There must be too many programs automatically start when you boot your PC. To manage them, click Run, type in "msconfig", select "Boot", then you can disable unnecessary programs from that list.

2. To increase PC running speed:
* Adding RAM is the most effective method, but if the RAM is already at the maximum, then do the following.
* Run disk cleanup and defragmenter. But to be honest, the built-in Disk Cleanup and Disk Defragmenter run quite slow and they will take you quite a long time, so I never use them. Third-party programs are better.
* Run registry optimizer software and defrag. No Windows built-in tools to do this. Search on google or refer to this free registry cleaner review.

Dell B-130 way to long to boot up


If you dont have a lot of programs running at start up, then it sounds like you've answered your own question. If youve gone through all the processes to clean up, then thats about it. How about Boot Defrag? How about go to windows folder find Prefetch folder Open it and select all. Then Delete all. Restart your computer. It may take 2 times to start showing improvement.

Computer running on 100% capacity


100% sounds like something bad is running like adware, spyware or a virus possibly.

I would suggest going to Start>Run and type in msconfig. Then go to the startups, and you can uncheck the things you don't need. Things like adobe reader, adobe updates, and such can be turned off.

Second, download and run the following programs, ccleaner, Malware Bytes anti malware, and Super Anti Spyware.

Run the ccleaner and delete all your temp junk, then run scans on both the other programs. You might need to turn off your anti virus program to do this.

RAM UPGRADE FOR HP COMPAQ 6720s


The speed of your computer is determined by the memory capacity, the hdd storage capacity (that means that if the hard drive is full of data your computer becomes low - not about the size of your hard drive) and your processor speed.

In your case I recommend:

1) A good cleaning,
2) Be sure that your computer is not virus or spyware infected
3) Get rid of those programs that you are not using.
4) Disable the programs that are running on the background

Sure after that your computer will become faster.
Your memory capacity is good enough to your normal duties (above described)
