I agree with Vinnie & 'guest'. The slowness of your browsing can be for two causes:

1. Slow internet connection: Do you have DSL or Cable?. If you don't, GET IT! the money you expend its workth it.

2. If you have DSL / Cable, and if your browsing/email is very slow can be something related to your hardware or to your software. Most of the times it's the software. My recommendation is to use the 'restore' option on your computer; that will configure your computer how it was when you got it. Downside: you will lose all your information. Recommendation: CD's backup of your information.

This problem might be because of your modem. try a fast connection and appropriate modem.

Increase download speed


I think the problem is in your device.To increase your internet speed
>You can use latest version of Firefox,or Google chrome or Opera browser.These are good browsers.
>Reset your modem and router or unplug them and replug it or switch off the modem and switch on it again daily twice.
>Try to avoid many downloads simultaneously.
>While watching videos online like Metacafe or you tube you can wait until the video buffers and then watch it.Avoid downloading while watching videos.
>You internet security software it helps to protect the PC or laptop from internet threats .If these will affect your PC or Laptop ,the system speed will get reduce.So browsers get crashes again and again,you cannot browse fast.
>You can use necessary addons only in Firefox.
>Clear cookies and browsing history in browsers daily.
Follow these steps it will helps to increase your dial up or any internet connection speed.
But your internet plan also need to be good.If you are using very slow speed connection,you can contact your ISP and upgrade your plan.Even after followed these steps your internet speed slow means you can contact your ISP and inform the problem.They will fix this.To check internet uploading and downloading speed i would suggest the site Scanmyspeed.com here you can check speed in Mbps and MBps.

Hey, ever since my system upgraded to explorer 9, it has been really slow, why is it doing this, i just bought my computer a week ago and i dont download anything, so what would be the reason for it...


If you are on a router with other computers if someone else is using Torrents it will slow down all the computers on the network even if you are not downloading anything will slow it down, Explorer 9 go to control panel then add remove programmes and un-install it. before you un-install explorer 9 make sure you download google chrome by using this link www.google.com/chrome as its faster than most browsers out there and will speed up your computer too.

MY COMPUTER IS SO SO SLOW IT TAKES FOREVER TO DO ANYTHING WHY IS THIS? IM NOT EXAGERATING IT TAKES FOREVER TO DO ANYTHING


Delete any start-up programs you don't want or use, this will help make it faster at boot-up. Go to Start Button > Programs > Start Up then delete unused programs.

You can also run disk defragmenter. Which will speed up the process of looking up files, making your computer faster. To access Start Button > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter.

There are other ways to make your computer faster like running anti-virus, spyware/adware programs, registry cleaners, and even re-installing Windows. If you still have problems take it to local computer service shop, not a "big box" store like a geek squad (they think everything is a virus).

I hope I helped your computer be faster. If you have questions please contact me on my profile. Good luck!

Why does my computer take forever to open a video


Large emails or Emails with large attachments (even Photos) that are automatically opened as well as Internet services that send large amount of data (eg. Youtube, Netflix) are restricted by the performance of your Network connection and the Data transfer rates allowed by the information provider and any local controlling softwares (such as Netlimiter & Firewalls)..
Hope it helps explained your 'slow' performance.

Typing words and their appearance on screen delay in email mode


Did you install anything new recently? If so, then you might have downloaded something that takes up a lot of space. Try deleting some programs from your computer that you don't need.

You might have Adware, spyware, virues etc on your computer that is slowing you down as well. Try doing a scan and see.

Yahoo mail is VERY slow


I am a Computer Software Expert. I believe that Yahoo! has lately made silly mistakes in their Yahoo! Mail in software/hardware side. The Mail is extremely slow even I have a super computer. This problem is Yahoo! Mail's problem; it has nothing to do with your PC as anyone uses it will suffer nowadays. In the past, it was nice and fast. Now it is Yahoo! Garbage Mail, so they should change the name!

Think pad T30 - very slow to shut down


Your computer needs a clean.
Be sure that your computer is not virus or spyware infected.

Check if the fan is working, another cause could be related to a hardware issue.

High Speed and viruses


Slowness can be caused by viruses.

Run a virus scan and see what comes up.
If there are viruses on the computer, you may want to consider Restoring your computer to factory settings.

But before you do that
Run a virus scan; go to Symantec and run it or download AVG free.

If you decide to restore to factory settings, I will be glad to help you. Understand, you will loose everything on the computer, and you will have to run all your programs again, set up your network connection and email. Very time consuming.
