Block the Startups and Services

When your computer is started up, there might be a number of programs and services running in the background. Some of them would be update checkers, error reporters and the rest are necessary tools like your antivirus etc.

The idea is to disable running the start-ups and service that you no longer need.

  1. Click Start ' Run.
  2. Type MsConfig and press ENTER.
  3. Disable the start-ups and services from the Startup and Services tabs respectively.
  4. Click OK button and restart the machine.

Defragment the Disks

My computer is slow to start up if the disks are too fragmented. Fragmentation refers to dividing a file into several parts which cause slow down in retrieving their contents.

The problem can be solved by defragmenting such fragmented disks using the Disk Defragmenter.

  1. Click Start ' All Programs ' Accessories ' System Tools ' Disk Defragmenter.
  2. Select all the drives.
  3. Click Defragment disks button.

Defragment your Registry

Registry is the database in your operating system containing significant configurations and information. Registry fragmentation too cause my computer is slow to start up issue.

Defragmenting the registry is too simple. You have to download a third party Registry Defragmenter software and install it o your system.

Set Up the System for Best Performance

Setting Windows for maximum performance rather than best appearance could fix the problem. Whenever my computer is slow to start up I perform the same task. The steps are provided below:

  1. Right click My Computer.
  2. Select Properties.
  3. Click Advanced System Settings link at the left hand side of the window.
  4. Click Advanced tab.
  5. In Performance frame, click Settings button.
  6. Select the option Adjust for best performance and click OK ' OK.

Disinfect the System

Sometimes computer is infected by a virus and I feel that my computer is slow to start up.. Change the existing antivirus software and download a good one. Update its virus definitions and conduct a full scan through it. Remove all the infected files that found.

How do i make my samsung notebook faster


1. Run the Disk Defragmenter utility to optimize the placement of files on your disk-drive.

2. Add more RAM to your computer -- like having a bigger work-bench or office-desk, your work will seem to go faster.

3. Stop running unnecessary "file-sharing" (music downloading) software.

Why are my pc to slow and how can i find a good virusprogram>?


Speed depends on:
* the disk-drive -- run "Disk Defragmenter" to optimize the placement of files, and run "Disk Cleanup" to delete unnecessary files;
* the CPU-speed (a laptop computer running only on battery power will slow itself down; so, connect the AC power)
* the amount of RAM (add more RAM).

See: http://www.Microsoft.com/security_essentials for free anti-virus software for XP/Vista/7 (not Windows 2000).

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
