1. click start and then type disk cleanup into search. Click disk cleanup and select each harddrive individually. (More than 1 harddrive listed repeat the process)

2. Once disk clean up has finished, Tick all items in the box shown, (also scroll down). Then click delete.

3. Click start and type disk defrag into search.

4. Select harddrives to defrag.

5. If you have antivirus on your computer this usually slows the performance down slightly as its constantly scanning behind the scenes.

6. If you have windows 7 operating system there is a free antivirus from microsoft (link below)

7. Simply download and install to your desktop.

Hope this helps and please rate.

8. I'm unsure of what junk you refer to but if you delete your browsing history at the end of each session (in your browser window click the shield emblem to the top right and select delete browsing history) and also disk clean up and the end of each session, This removes all junk.

A good general way to speed up your computer is to make sure that you don't have too many startup applications. If when you start up your computer, it has to take the time to load and startup extra programs you don't need, it can slow down start up drastically. Try going to start, type "run", click on run in the start bar, and type "msconfig". Here a window will pop up and you can click over to the "start up" tab. Look and uncheck all programs you don't need on startup, and restart.
Another good solution to quickening your PC is to upgrade its RAM. This will cost you a few dollars but is the easiest solution. will walk you through and scan your computer for your ram upgrade eligibility.
A free way to remove junk, viruses, spyware, etc. is a program called AVG Free. It is antivirus software that is very effective. Head to and find the download for the free version, and after it's installed try to scan your computer at least once a week.
Hope this helps!

Try installing an up-to-date antivirus program. I recommend AntiVir which is free and updates daily (it's also quite light-weight compared to others).
Also, install the excellent Anti-Malware (also free, with some limitations) and run a full test from time to time.
Try removing as many startup-items as possible from Windows. Check Start-menu->All Programs->Startup for things you don't need and delete them from there (right-click and Delete from the menu).
If you have less than 1GB of RAM, it's also worth investing to at least another GB (making 2GB in total). It's cheap these days and allows your system to work without having to resort to virtual memory all the time (which uses the hard-disk and is quite slow).

Mail,people and messaging take so long downloading on my windows 8. help please

Grace, there are probably several problems. Cookies, junk files clogging and cluttering things ups. You may also have a trojan or two. So I'll recommend an antivirus for that. And your tcp settings may be off. I'll recommend a small program for that. If you can get someone to do all this, it might go faster. 1#.) Goto and download their software called Advanced System Care 7. Get the free version. Set it up. And when it's done installing, tick Junk Files Clean first. Let it run and find everything. Then click 'Repair'. After Repair finishes, click back or finish. Untick Junk File Clean, and tick Privacy Sweep. In this, it will find a lot of things. None of your passwords will be erased. It eliminates all sorts of tracking cookies and things. There will be a lot. Eliminating all this will make computer go faster. After using these couple of utilities, computer should run faster. Fast enough to download the other utilities u need. Goto and dl the free version of this antivirus. Set it up, let it dl the new definitions. Run the Quick Scan. Even this will find the deepest trojans, adware, malware etc. Click Clean or "Fix" to whatever it says. Reboot your machine after this, as Unthreat may have to do some final cleaning. Your browsing speed and other things should be faster. Now goto, and install it, the browser plugin. It will stop trackers. Ghostery is also extremely safe. Unthreat is one of the best antiviruses I have ever seen. In Advanced System Care, learn to use the tool that is comes with (on the first page). Advanced System Care is also extremely safe. After you use some and all of these programs, your computer will be running like new & fresh. And stay that way after (as long as you keep them installed). And they're relatively cheap to buy. ASC has no expiration, but if you buy it, it will give you more tools. It is pretty powerful as it is. All these types of tracking cookies and trojans can slow down your computer to a crawl. As ad-ware wants to track you, and sell everybody's names. And last, get spybot search and destroy, another powerful anti-adware and trojan utility. Get it here . It may seem like a lot to do, but your machine will run clean & clear for quite awhile after that. Maybe up to four years, or maybe more. Let me know how it all works out.

Slow computer

Improper computer maintenance may result in slow PC. To fix computer running slow you are required to clean junk and windows errors from your PC using a System Utilities program.
To download a reliable System Utilities, go to famous website download.cnet and search there Reginout. Which I personally use and recommend the friends.
After downloading run all of its tools one by one except Internet Optimizer, to clean all the junk and error files from your computer.

My laptop is hanging and slow when it comes to use the internet.should i reformat it?

before reformatting, follow these
Clean Windows Registry: The registry of the Windows contains immense information. It shall be cleaned all the time and it is the most effective way to boost computer speed in an easy way.
Defragment your PC to increase computer speed: Press Start button > then Programs > Click Accessories > Press System Tools > And Disk Defragmenter.
This feature will take some time but it will compact large data into smaller pieces creating a lot of free space for the computer to run faster. You can delete unnecessary files from your computer prior to performing disk defragmentation.
Add more RAM to Speed up your computer: If you are running a lot of programs and the capacity of your RAM is short. This will surely help you to make computer run faster with Windows 7 or Vista in seconds. Fortunately it does not take much time. Make it sure that you place it the right way.
Clear Cache, history and temporary internet files: Another way which I assume is a 'best way to speed up my computer' is to clear the cache, history and temporary internet files. Removing junk files frees up a lot of space required to make computers run faster.
Turn off unnecessary programs from start up: A lot of computer users complain that their Windows 7 or Vista does not boot faster. I would recommend to such people to have a shorter start up items list.
Have low intensity graphics If you are not an ardent gaming user then you can afford to run computer faster with low intensity graphics.
Uninstall unused software and programs: It is very common that people install a number of computer programs and then stop using them. These unused programs shall be removed to increase the computer speed.
The above guidelines were really helpful to speed up my computer. These are safe and do impact computer performance in a positive way.
Frustrated of the dead slow speed of your computer? Do you wish to speed up computer in seconds? Please remember to clean Windows registry with Intel Software Partner, RegInOut BY. After this scan you will feel how much faster is your computer running.

All videos are very choppy such as HULU or utube and machine seems to run slow in general . Start up and shut down seem to be slow also.

Downloaded videos can sometimes play "faster" than your Internet connection can download them, in the same way that parents can never keep enough food in the refrigerator to feed their teenagers.

Start downloading the video, and click 'pause' to let the download continue for 30 to 60 seconds, and then click 'play', to see if the video is "smoother" when the "buffered" content is being read from your local disk-drive.

If not, then the "performance" of your computer needs to be investigated.
How much RAM in your computer?
Windows 2000? XP? Vista? 7?
Is your anti-virus software working correctly?
Have you recently done a "full" virus-scan -- computer-viruses can cause your computer to slow down.
Disconnect the Ethernet cable from your computer, and then reboot.
Does the reboot go faster with _NO_ Internet connection?

Acer Aspire AOA 150 Netbook VERY Slow

If you have it all standard, you probably have only 512mb of ram on it, which is pathetic by today's standards. Upgrade to 1 or 2 gb and it will make a huge difference.
Defragmenting the hard drive can also help a bit.

Try a system restore to a previous date when the computer was working fast. Please backup all your current DATA before you do so as you may lose them.
