Computer slow My computer has really slowed down. Expecially during boot up (can take up to 10 minutes sometimes) but also during normal working and esp. browsing.

You have to many programs installed on your desktop that are taking up space... also you could have a virus that can hide from the defrag..... also the F-secure program could have something to do with it.. they take up a lot of space

Slow response from on switch


If the computer is slow to boot up, there are several factors to take into account. The RAM could be going bad. The hard drive may be going bad. There could just simply be too much "junk" on the computer and it may just need defragmented and cleaned out.

The first thing I would check is that the cpu fan is working. You should be able to see the fan come on from the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes the fans can stick from dust and dirt. Then the cpu will get very hot and cause the computer to slow way down. Try using a can of compressed air on the fan and see if it starts working. If the fan is working ok then you might have some type of virus or corrupted installation causing the computer to slow way down. You could try pressing F8 right before windows starts to load. This will bring up a boot menu. Then try booting the computer in safe mode with networking and see if it boots up fairly quickly. Once it boots up in safe mode run your virus scanning software to see if there are any viruses on your computer.

There are some days when this computer works slow


Possible antivirus or windows updates. They usually run in the background so you wouldn't notice when they are running an update. This is especially the case with Windows. It will slow down the internet speed as well as the Pc itself until it is complete. Apart from that, You may have other programs that automatically run without your knowledge which also update. If the probem gets worse, you may want to download an anti spyware program to check for malware that your antivirus software doesn't catch. Best of luck and hope I've answered your question.

Everythimg is slow


Beatriceccc: This can frequently happen when Vista runs on a computer that's hardware just can't keep up with it. I'd like to have you try this for me. Click on your start menu, then "Right click" on "computer" in the left column.This will take you to a page, that will give you something called the Microsoft Rating. If you can comment back to this post with the details of the overall rating, as well as the specific categories, we'll be able to provide better assistance.
Was this computer pre-installed with vista? or did you upgrade from XP? What is the model number of your machine? All of this will help us to help you.

My computer is really slow i noticed i bought an AMD64 but it says my processor is 32 not 64 y


yes i agree with shadowpr, the 32 refers to 32 bit, you may need to run a spyware and virus scan in safe mode (press F8 on start up and highlight start windows in safe mode) or maybe you are low on memory, especially if you are running Vista as sometimes it can be working hard for 5 minutes on boot up causing your system to slow up.

Check what memory you have installed and upgrade if no viruses or spyware are found

Normal 0 There are a number of things that can cause the computer or the camera to freeze up or slow down.
First I’d check to see how much memory is installed in the computer. It takes additional memory to operate the camera.
Hope this helps. Bud

HELP printer is haging up computer


To me, it looks more as a network problem rather than a printer problem. Just to make sure, delete every unused printer drivers from your computer, including the SCX-4521f. Unused printer drivers take up memory and CPU resources of your computer, even if they are not being used. The second common issue on slow computers is an excess of installed fonts. If you have more than 300 fonts installed, you need a cleanup.

Finally, install the SCX-4521 as a local printer only on your computer and print some tests. If they come out at decent speed, get a real computer technician to diagnose your network. If it doesn't, you need to further clean your computer's registry. It is most probably loading drivers, data and files from deleted applications. You can download a very good cleaning utility called Ccleaner on the Internet. Also check for possible virus using Panda or Kapesky antivirus. Good luck.
