Go to control panel => Add/Remove Programs=> Then remove/uninstall the not used/not required softwares.
Check your performance settings. Select "Adjust for Best Performance"
Set the right size for Virtual Memory.

After the uninstall, run a free registry cleaner like "Eusing Registry Cleaner"

Go to msconfig & remove unneccessary startup programs.

Run Disk Cleanup & Disk defragmenter.

All of above will give your pc a good boost.

Hope this helps you my friend..

Slow upload of pics and videos on my pc

I would start by clearing out your cookies, then I would do a disk defragment to clear out old stuff your computer is loading. If you have desktop widgets or are running programs that take up a lot of memory.
Go to Start, Control panel, internet options, and click to delete temporary files and then after go into programs, accessories and disc defragment. Hope it helps!

I replaced the cmos battery and cleared it

You cleared your cmos while windows was installed. NEVER reset, clear or load default w/o backing up your system before. You changed something in the bios that is no more according with the windows configuration. Good to find what. Try to reconfigure your bios maybe it will solve your problem. But if not you've to reinstall windows.

How to master reset my emachine desk top ? Its very slow

To do a factory resore and remove all data look at the boot up menue it will tell you to push a key generally F10 or F8 to start factory restore.

However you can fix your slow pc with out doing that by running the command "msconfig".

Go to "run" from the start menu
click run and type msconfig in it

next go to that startup tab and disable all.
next look for sound and video drivers (nvidia, ati)that may need to be on. and turn them on
(Things like adobe reader and ms office can be safely turned off and will still run fine)

now reboot you should have a mutch faster pc.

Don't forget to rate.

Reset to factory dettings


I am not sure on which drive the OS is installed. You can confirm if you can see Document and Settings folder on C drive. It means you can do all operations on D drive. To make it clear you need not to reset you just Select the Files and Folders which dont need it and press Shift+Delete. it will ask your confirmation before deleting the stuff. If sure press yes for all.

It will remove all the selected stuff from the D drive.

I recommend this becuase I am not sure whether you have Recovery disc provided by show owner.

I have dell Optiplex GX260 with pentiumR 4 CPU 2ghz an 2g RAM. I have a separate seagate 200 g harddrive coupled to it. I tend to leave a lot of programmes open at one time mainly inetrnet stuff and just...

I would suggest rebooting more often as the OS has memory leaches that slow the computer down over time. Rebooting clears this up. Its a pain but works. Also remove programs using the program removal in the control panels as it will clear unneeded software that may be running on your computer. Backing up important files and doing a clean install is the best way to get rid of nasty malware that finds its way from the internet to your computer.

A new system of course would be way faster but money is money, what is your time worth to put into this computer? is it worth wasting or get a new computer?
