There are many causes for a slodown but you can do 2 things right away.

1. Clean your temp files and Registry.
2. Check for Viruses and clean them

Here's how you start.

1. Hold down the Windows Logo key at bottom left of key board and press the R key,
a 'Run Window will appear. In that window type this exactly

%temp% and then press the Enter key

Now you'll see a Temp Files window. Take your time and delete every single file Winwos will allow (tip, any files you see with the little left coner bent over cannot be deleted) It's perfectly fine to leave those files as Windows needs them to support your computer.

2. Go online and Download a simple and totally free proram called Cleaner. Install and use it's first 2 features and get help if you're even a little conceerned.

3. Dowload another great program (free) called "Malewarebytes" and use their easily understood Quick Scan feature. Get rid of the viruses using the easy instructions.

After all that, if your computer runs slow, you need a new hard drive, as all hard drives are really only expected to make it at full capacity for 3 to 5 years.

That's all your problems sound like to me.

Please do me a great kindness, as I have tried to do you one.. Do not leave 2 thumbs up. It decreases my rating for trying to help you for free while you have to wait for concrete resaults, but can belittle me for not getting you a quick fix. I'd rather you posted nothing.

Kind Regards,

TheSelkie

First thing I would do is take the desktop outside and clean it out with two cans of compressed air.

HEAT can really slow a machine down. Let me know if that makes a difference (good to do either way) and we'll go from there.

Hi,

It makes no wonder that the machines slow with only having 384MB of RAM installed.

If you were to max out the memory capacity of the machine which i suspect is DDR SDRAM and probably has a maximum of 2GB as this would make the machine much faster that what it is now.

384MB of RAM is just not good enough to run XP properly these days.

If the machine is still in good working order (apart from it being slow) then you could upgrade the RAM.


Regards.

Dell dimension 2400 pc is extremely slow. did everything i know...delete cookies etc....still extremely slow.


Run your anti virus and anti malware programs. If you do not have a anti malware program go to cnet.com and download a free anti malware program. It sounds as if you have a virus on your computer

I have a Dell Dem.2400 PC. Tha problem i have is


What OS?

I believe you'll need to go to www.corel.com, navigate through their menu system and download serive packs 2 and 3 for WP11. This may solve your printing problem.

There is also some probability that WP11 may not run correctly under whatever OS you are using... Check Corel's website for details

The front side bus speed of the processor is the limiting factor of your RAM speed.
The Processor has a 400 Mhz FSB, hnece your RAM runs at 266.
For RAM to run at 333 (PC 2700), you'll need a 533 FSB Processor.
