A lot of the time, this simply means that you have too many programs running at the same time. If you're using windows press CTRL+SHIFT+ESCAPE, then when the window pops up, click the performance tab at the top, and look under there to see if you've used up too much memory.
Since windows starts using your hard drive as extra temporary memory once your ram fills up, it slows the computer's operation down quite a bit. This means that you either have to upgrade the amount of ram that you have or try to uninstall software running that you don't absolutely need.
There's a list of running processes under the processes tab. It takes a little bit of experience, but some of the names under there might be recognizable, and you can find out what to uninstall using that as your hint.

How to maintain the speed of your desktop computer

If your computer has excellent specs then you're lucky. It is also important to note that as it ages, it can also be compared to us humans because their effectiveness and speed deteriorates. However, there are ways in which you can maintain its speed or at least make the deterioration process slower. Here are some tips that I also do with my own computer.

1. Upgrade or repair your Windows operating system. Whether you’re online or not, your PC is vulnerable to viruses esp. if you don’t Deep Freeze your drives. If you already like your OS then a repair is a better option in order to patch loopholes or performance glitches.
2. Have a fast and reliable antivirus. The one that I can recommend is the Avast because it scans really fast and you have the option to delete or move the viruses to virus vault without corrupting the programs. And update your antivirus regularly or auto-update it. You also scan your PC regularly and turn it on always. After scanning completely, you restart your PC in order to totally remove the viruses and detected threats.
3. Have as few desktop folders only. Delete or uninstall files that you don’t need and use like duplicate files. Keep/organize your personal files to drive D only. Keep the drive C just for your necessary programs.
4. Empty the Recycle Bin after deleting files.
5. Avoid using animated desktop wallpapers.
6. Stop or quite all unused applications. You just can right-click on those icons at your taskbar.
7. Clean your CPU with a blower/vacuum cleaner at least once a month and blow the dust away. It helps your CPU runs fast.
8. Upgrade or add memory. This surely makes your PC runs fast.
9. Check your PC’s ventilation. Overheating makes your PC runs slow. You can also use your electric fan in addition to your built-in computer blowers if you don’t use air-conditioner.
10. Use only fast browsers. I personally recommend Google Chrome or Safari.
11. Install ‘Cheat Engine’ and run it to any program you’d like to speed up. It makes browsing faster.

Not knowing what operationg system you have on your computer, XP, Vista or Windows 7, I would recommend your go the link I have provided below by copying and pasteing into your web browser to go the Microsoft Security Essentials.

Dowload and install the software. After the installation, it will go out for updates and do a fast scan of your computer for virus problms. Abort the fast scan and then select a full scan. Let it finish and if it finds problems go to history and it will display what has been found and what it did about if.

Good Luck

How can i remove the cookie virus from my computer for free?its more than 30 virus

In the true sense, Cookies are not viruses at all, these are files associated with some sites so that later you will be able to access your previously visited sites fast. Different sites store cookies on your computer when you access them online. Please don't be scared and if you detect them by your anti-virus, please delete them. You can also delete them by deleting the complete browsing history in your browser.

Hope this helps,

Game slowing down at random times

  • Many users while playing a game on there computer seem to notice that it slows down at random times throughout game-play, This common on most computer as users seem to forget about other applications running on there computer.
  • If your CPU is not fast enough and you are running many applications while your game is running you will notice the game isn't responding as fast as it should, The best way to solve this is disable all programs which you are not using including MSN messenger and any browser or File sharing/Torrent Application.
  • Also make sure your anti-virus is configured not to scan automatically otherwise it may start scanning while you are in game and cause dramatic lag, Most anti-virus's will provide an gamers profile which you can activate to prevent certain anti-virus features while you are playing your game.

My hp pavilion mx70 is running so slow

The issue can be caused by many many reasons such as outdated hardware, overload startup programs, corrupt registry issues, too many junks, virus attack, poor security software taking too much system resources, remnants of uninstalled applications etc. The fact is, you should keep some system maintenance job regularly. If you don't want to do these manually, try the solution:

Meanwhile, upgrading hardware configuration (add RAM, change a new video card, larger-volume HDD etc) can be a fast yet effective way to improve your pc performance. But that won't be the most economical way, as you know you can't always afford to do that.

A lot things arise from this particular problem, but, perhaps if you go into mapping properties, and see if disconec function is enable, you can change to disable. another way is assing a fixed letter for this drive.
