There are alot of things you can do to speed up XP. The best solution for you to do is to backup all the data and reformat and reinstall windows. This will clear off all the junk and get you started on a clean slate. Windows never runs better then when it is first installed. Short term solutions are, defragmenting the hard drive. Killing processes that are not needed.
Hope that helps,
Lee

Toshiba Satelite A150-S4184,Hasent been used much,It was verry fast, now have internet again and loads very slow and takes long time to load pages,I think auto downloads instales windows 7,What can I


How much memory do you have in your Toshiba Satelite laptop?
Windows XP with Service Pack 3 needs a minimum of 1GB but ideally would run better with 2GB.

Windows 7 would need the same but there is no auto-update process to go from XP to 7 as this is not allowed - you would have to do a Custom install of Windows 7 which requires a clean install (i.e. format the hard drive and start from scratch).

If you are running XP with less than 1GB memory, then you need to check what the maximum memory that the laptop can be upgraded to?

The easiest method is to use the Crucial Memory web site System Scanner utility which will detect how much memory is installed and advise how much you can upgrade to according to the options available for the specific make & model of laptop.

If the laptop hasn't been turned on or on-line for a long time then you may be using a lot of resources downloading Microsoft critical updates plus updates for other installed programs like iTunes, QuickTime, Java etc.

Try downloading and installing a copy of the free Advanced System Care 5 utility then running the Deep Care tools which include System Optimisation and clean-up utilities to improve system performance.

My laptops slow need to make it better


Hello

Installing windows xp, will only slow down your computer, as windows xp use much more resources than 98.

Also, we are not allowed to provide customers with piracy links.

Daughter bought computer hates it cause it is slow loading up


Check if there are a bunch of virus and spyware blockers running. The ones that run all the time HOG the resources. Also a bunch of those programs that continually look for updates. You have enough memory and likely the machine is fast enough. Websites pile on a bunch of toolbars... all the crud just slows things down.

RAM


download and install: http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

this will allow you to delete the things that startup in the task bar. Windows will load faster, and you can open just the programs you want. This will not delete the program just remove them from automaticly starting up. RAM always helps. 1GB is the standard for XP to run very smoothly 2GB is the best
