How is the remote function when you change channels or pull up other options? Is this only happening when you pull up the Program Guide? If you haven't already done this, unplug the receiver from your electrical outlet for about 10 seconds and then plug back in. This is cause the receiver to reboot and reload all the information. It will also re-acquire the satellite signal. After the picture returns, try the Program Guide to see if it is working better. Also do you have fresh batteries in the remote? I hope this helps.

reinstall or system reset to clean the main disk from rubbish.
But be carefull to move the important things such as photos you would like to save to a external memory disc/usb.

That might be one problem why it's slow .....

Very slow, sometimes cannot read

There are a lot of possible reasons for your computer to slow down. It might be some corruptions in the system, virus infection, over storage of files and documents, registry redundancy, and a lot more.

There are many things that you can do the make it run faster. But the best and the most accurate fix for this certain issue is the Operating System Re-installation.

Before doing so, I suggest you back up all the important files in your computer by saving them in an external storage device like USB flash drive, external Hard drive or DVD.

Slowing down of a system is a sign that the operating system is dying therefore don't wait for a day or two. Start backing up your files before it's too late.

Here are the guides that you should follow during the installation of the operating system.

Pc is very slow..............

1) Scan for malware. A program that means you no good just might be the culprit. If your PC is mass-mailing spam or taking part in some other evil activity without your knowledge, that could slow it down. I assume you already have a good anti-virus program, but just to be safe, install, update, and scan your PC with either SUPERAntiSpyware or Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (or both).

2) Look for a hog process. A process is a program or an independent piece of a program, and any time you're running Windows, you're running a lot of them. A big, fat, slow one could be hogging all of the resources and slowing everything down. See Tame a Hog Process for more on controlling them.

3) Remove autoloaders. Most PCs have too many programs that load automatically with every boot. (In fact, most PCs leave the factory with too many such programs.) Each one of these slows your PC and may cause conflicts. See What Autoloading Programs Should I Keep? for further instructions.

4) Keep notes. If the above advice doesn't solve the problem, keep a pad of paper and a pen near your PC. When it slows, write down what applications are running and what you were doing when the problems start. After a while, you may figure out what program or practice is to blame. (Why a paper and pen? So you don't have to load an existing word processing document and start typing while your PC is moving like a tortoise dragging the ultimate gamer's desktop PC.)

5) Change your work habits. I know you don't want to read this, but perhaps your PC isn't powerful enough for what you're doing with it. To keep it moving nicely, multitask less. When possible, close one big application before opening another. Replace your slower applications with faster competitors (Replacing Firefox with Chrome did wonders for my laptop.) And don't upgrade major applications unless you absolutely have to; the new versions are always slower.

6) Upgrade your hardware. If your PC is just too slow for the work you need--or want--to do on it, maybe you need an investment. And no, you don't have to buy a new computer. Adding RAM will give you the most speed for the fewest dollars. See RAM Upgrade Advice for more on this upgrade.

Startup windows

First do a general cleaning then delete any programs from start up that you don't need. Delete any un needed dectop icons.

The biggest problem for slow start ups is because of a corrupt or bloated registry. You need to clean and repair it.

Windows is looking for programs that are no longer there or corrupted, the default time for windows OS to wait is 30 seconds before it gives up and moves on. So if you have a lot of bad registry files this will really slow a computer down. A lot more info can be found here -

When Windows starts up, a number of programs will start automatically. Most of them don't need to start but they do. The more programs that start up, the longer your computer will take to load everything.

The first thing to do is to get rid of all the junk in your computer. Uninstall any program you no longer want.
Clearout all your old temporary internet files.
Do a registry and adware clean.
Get rid of old documents and files, anything you do not need.

To see the programs that start when you boot up:
Click Start
Click Run
Type msconfig
Click OK
When the window opens Click Startup

You will see a vast number of programs that your computer loads each time you boot. You can uncheck a lot of them. Do a google search for startup programs before you uncheck anything. There are some good guides that will tell you what to allow to start and what you don't need. Note any unchecked program will not be deleted or uninstalled and will still work when you want them. You will need to restart your computer if you make any changes in msconfig

I would also suggest you defrag your hard drive.
Go to Start-Programs-Accessories-Syatem Tools-Defragmenter
Follow the instructions.

Do not rule out the possibility that you have a virus or some other spyware program running in the background which slows things down. Check these out too.
