What are the reasons to system becomes slow? please give me right suggestions. i am unable to solve this problem. And is there any good tutorial videos for my problem please send the url link.


Systems usually slow down over time because the user installs programs that run constantly even when you aren't using them. If you look at the right side of the taskbar, you'll see icons for volume and probably an antivirus program that you need running - but often times there are other programs there that are slowing down your PC, such as updates you need to install or games. If that's the case, then changing the settings of those programs so they don't run in the background and closing them will free up more system memory and processing power, and your computer should run closer to the speed it was at when you first purchased it.

If you have any specific programs you find that you don't know how to disable, just let me know!

Slow to open


Hi,
Is this slow when start up the computer or slow when you open an application?
If slow when start up the computer, the reason is your computer has too much start up programs and services. All these software, services is required to open as start up of the computer, that reduce speed of log on/ start up process. You can speed up by try these steps:
1. Start - Run: type: msconfig and hit enter.
2. The System Configuration Window will appear. Click on Selective Startup. Then go to Start up tab, untick the process that you think it not importance for start up such as Acrobat Reader...ect. 3. Then hit apply and restart your computer. You can disable all of start up services.
If slow when you try to open an application, then the reason is your computer busy work with some other higher piority process. If you think that you need this application open quicker, you can go to Task Manger and End the task you don't want it run or the task that took a lot of CPU resources.

Hope this will hellp
Thanks for reading.

Just purchased and downloaded the 9.99 flight tracker pro version and it continues to crash on opening. As soon as i open the program it closes before i can view any information ?


Hi There,
I travel around the World at least once month from Wellington, New Zealand and am constantly prone to delayed or cancelled flights and my business contacts and family are constantly trying to understand when I am landing so that they can reach me.
I have therefore created an iPhone application that gives live departures and arrivals information for any flights at any given airport around the World. You can find an overview of the application at http://www.3dot5.net/blog/world-flights/.
There is also a draw to win an ipad everytime a milestone of 10,000 download is reached on the AppStore, more information can be found on: http://www.3dot5.net/blog/win-an-ipad-with-world-flights/
Cheers,
Patrice

Microsoft Word 2003 program is slow in opening and closing docs


Is your disk-drive getting "close" to being full?
That could cause "slow" file-opening and file-saving actions.

Or, find your original Microsoft CD-ROM for the software, and the matching 25-character license-key.

Then, use Add/Remove Programs to "uninstall" MS Word.

Restart your computer, and reinstall the software, using the CD-ROM and the license-key.

Access "Microsoft Update" to get all the latest fixes & security-patches for MS Word.

Hello, i find it impossible to maintain a constant speed (about 30mph) without the bike juddering , im having to open throttle - close throttle constantly to keep at 30. it has been back for repair and...


Bikes like yours with high horsepower output, a high revving engine, and relatively light weight are very sensitive when operated at low speed - and at low power settings. I have found that usually, after getting well acquainted with a particular bike, things become much easier have a fine control over. In the meantime, try running in higher - or lower gear, at that speed. Sometimes that can make constant throttle movements less necessary.

Why does my computer keep slowing down?


The problem is Firefox...it is a resource hog and they have to fix it. It will not release the ram it allocates for itself even after you shut the program down. You can actually hit Ctrl + Alt + Del and bring up the task manager and go to processes and find firefox there and shut it off. My honest opinion is use Google Chrome...it uses very little resources and is the fastest browser out there and you can import all your favorites, etc. Using firefox and watching videos will bring a decent system to its knees.

Windows closing slow means you have a bunch of program that are running in the back ground. Windows has to close each before the system can shut down. To see just what is running in the back ground. Allow windows to completly finish opening. Click the start button, click run. In the window type, msconfig & click ok. System Configuration Utility window will open. Click on the Startup tab. Now you can see just what programs are running in the back ground.
Adding memory can also help speed up a slow pc & keeping the system clean by using the two programs listed next.
First. Run disk cleanup, a windows program found in system tools. Than run Defrag also found in system tools. Restart the pc when finished. This should help your system to run a bit better.
If you have the CD that came with the sound card uninstall the software through Add/ Remove programs found in the control panel. Restart the pc. Reinstall the drivers from the CD & try opening a few programs. Open & run the program your using to play music. Any better? If not try using another music program like iTunes a free download found here. http://www.apple.com/itunes/
You can also try the drivers from creative they may be newer than your CD here: http://us.creative.com/support/downloads/welcome.asp?action=next
Enjoy!

Outlook 2007 slow on closing and crashes on open


Your computer might be using caching. Can you tell me how much RAM you have on your computer? If you have 2GB of RAM i would recommend disabling the caching. This slows down the system quiet a bit (since it uses miliseconds instead of nanoseconds). Your computer is as fast as the slowest component.  I would also suggest defragging the drive.
