Windows vista toshiba satellite A 135 S4667 is very slow. I'm wireless and added 2 gb so now have 4gb but running slower than ever. Especially when I'm on Pogo site. My sound is also not synced...


Are you noticing it to be very slow online or just in general use? If it's just slow online then it could be your internet connection. If it's generally slow then I suggest a disk defrag, disk clean-up and a virus scan.

I have recently written several tips that can help you speed things up:

Dell Studio 15 runs slow... My Dell studio 1558 takes long time to boot & processing is also slow,i have tried disk cleanup and defragment hard disk but nothing worked,it has the following...


Check the boot processes in the from your systems control panel and look for unnecessary boot time services. Such as an anti virus boot scan and similar processes. Sometimes it is caused by the network card driver. Start your computer in safe mode and select the selective start up option and disable each service one by one (non windows) to find out which one is slowing down your boot process. It usually due to a boot scan, a faulty driver, or an invalid or corrupt registry entry. I highly doubt that you are infected with a virus and it is due one of the issues listed above.

Malware dialers and virus' can cause this. Run a virus scan then get Spybot search and destroy here:

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.

My PC is extremely slow. I have the defrag set on a schedule and I have done a virus scan using Kaspersky Anti-Virus recently.


First, backup all your data to an external medium.

Then, if you have no hardware problems, do this:

(1) Run a FULL anti-virus scan with a good virus scanner. Get free editions of Avast or Antivir. Use the latest virus definitions file. But don't install or run more than one anti-virus at the same time.
http://www.avast.com
http://www.avira.com

(2) Run anti-spyware scans with Super Anti-spyware and malwarebytes free editions.
http://malwarebytes.org/
http://www.superantispyware.com/

(3) Ensure all Microsoft security updates are applied.

(4) Run disk cleanup to delete old temp files and other junk. Right click the drive in My Computer, choose Properties and Disk cleanup. Delete the temp files, temporary internet files, empty the recycle bin etc. Don't compress the drive contents.

(5a) Run chkdsk once to scan for file system errors. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315265

(5b) Run a thorough disk defrag. Use a good defragmenter for this, and also run a boot-time defrag to fix the MFT and page file if they are fragmented. Use Diskeeper 2010, which is the best defragger around. Their website has free 30-day trial versions. http://www.diskeeper.com

(6) Disable unnecessary background processes and services that take up memory. You can use MSCONFIG and SERVICES for this, but if you're unsure of what the processes/services do, don't change any settings.

My Acer one is running very slow and it does not let me chat 1 to 1 no more on sites. Why is this


Your netbook could be infected with viruses, malware or trojans....check the guide below.....

At the end of this are three links to programs that you should load up and run. The first is MalwareBytes Ant-Malware Tool, another is Avast Anti-Virus 5.0, the third is Threatfire.
Run MalwareBytes first and perform a quick scan, when it finishes, it will ask you to show the results, click on “Show results, all infections will appear in red. Delete everything it finds.
Run Avast and install it, when it asks, go ahead and schedule a pre-boot scan of your entire system. This should get rid of most problems….Now, if you have Norton Anti-Virus, internet security or any of the others, they also be causing some of your problems. They will have to be removed and the only way to properly do that is go to the Norton site and download their Norton removal tool. Run this before installing any other kind of ant-virus. The Avast 5.0 is free to use, just register it once a year, that is all…it will update itself 2-4 times a day to keep its virus definitions constantly updated, you do not have to do anything, it is completely automated and has 7 real time scanners that run all the time.

When your boot time scan is over and you have either deleted or moved the infection to the chest as Avast recommends, now run Threatfire…it will ask you to let it update as will Malwarebytes, do so. Threatfire monitors every web page on the world wide web and lets you know if your tap dancing where you shouldn’t, it will throw a flag up and say abort connection…do so to save yourself from a bad situation. The links are below.

Speed up my computer


Slow...might be a very relative word
did you  try checking for any malware,viruses etc. on  your computer those are the basic cause  of making a system slow   you could  check  what are programs are starting at start up and wheter the are actually usefull or not
i would suggest you try  AVAST 8  and carry out a boot time scan  .
this will get the viruses  before they are executed a  very  good feature. perform a disk clean up
defragment
there are many ways.
even if you follow a  few of the you would find a good improvement in speed

Windows running very slow


Have you scanned the PC (all drives) for spyware and viruses?

Spybot search & destroy is a good, free application.

For anti-virus, Trend Micro PC-Cillan or CA Internet Security
(Nortons will drastically slow down your computer)

Have you loaded any other software on the C drive?
Often programs designed to load up & run in the background at startup cause a PC to run slow.

RAM can be another culprit. 1GB minimum is best.

Hope this helps
