FIXING A SLOW COMPUTER

A slow computer could be caused by a number of things -
1. Insufficient RAM (memory) - if your computer has less than 512Mb of RAM then increase it to at least 1Gb of RAM.
2. Registry problems - clean and repair the registry, it will contain unused registry keys. Use programs such as Registry Mechanic, Microsoft RegClean etc.
3. Uninstall/remove unused programs, this will also free up hard disk space.
4. Not enough hard disk space - swap file space may need to be increased if Windows hasn't been configured to manage it.
5. Install latest Windows updates.
6. Update virus definition files and scan computer for viruses, Trojans, malware etc.
7. Clear the Internet cache for faster browsing.
8. Hard disk maintenance is required at least once a month to keep it functioning efficiently.
Run the following programs -
Disk Cleanup - removes temporary files that are no longer used and to recovers hard disk space.
Disk Defragmenter to make fragmented files into contiguous files and therefore the hard disk access is faster.

Computer is running very slow


I would suspect you have to many programs running. First, download two freeware programs,1. CCLEANER at http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ This will clean the junk from your machine. In TOOLS section, STARTUP, disable ALL unnessary startup programs. In the UNINSTALL section, remove ALL unnessary programs and Toolbars, they are killers on broswer speed. 2. Download MALWAREBYTES freeware at: http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/. In the install, UNCHECK the TRIAL PRO version, you want the freeware version. Run a FULL SCAN, DELETE ALL RESULTS, Reboot. For Win 7 Tips for speed look at this: http://www.computingunleashed.com/speed-up-windows-7-ultimate-guide-to.html

Computer very slow


If your problem is that your computer is very slow and you have upgraded your memory to the maximum, then you should concentrate on cleaning up and optimising the Windows file system.

Download and install the following utility programs that can help you to improve the performance of your computer.

Advanced System Care Free - run the Deep Care option of this utility.
DiskMax - run a Detailed Scan and let it clean up all profiles, updates, cache etc.
Smart Defrag - run a Defrag and Fast Optimize
CCleaner - use this to compliment the above plus use the Tools Uninstall option to remove any unwanted software programs, browser tool bars etc. Also use the Tools Startup option to disable any of the programs being started on every boot that don't need to be, i.e. things like QuickTime, Adobe Reader.

My windows vista laptop is running slow


The question is whether Vista is slow or the Internet. Vista needs to be cleaned if you do not have a good cleaning software program I advise this one for simply cleaning of files that are no longer needed left over installations etc, and it cleans the registry and allows you to see startup programs and other things that prevent computer slow downs. Be sure to also if you decide not to download the free cleaner program that you go to start-run-then type in msconfig and select any programs in the startup other than antivirus and click on disable for now. If when you restart your computer does fine then go ahead and repeat the process and select delete this time, this will increase performance considerably. Click Here to download ccleaner it is free. Thanks for using FixYa! please post a comment if this assisted you in any way. Also gather all of your files personal you want to keep and save them to disk or a USB stick or an external source. This will free up the hard disk.
Now in relations of the router since this is question is applied to the router section. Unplug the router and turn of the computer. Wait about 25 to thirty seconds restart them both. The Internet connection is determined by your service and has nothing to do with being slow unless your computer is bogged down or does not have enough memory or a good graphics card as well. Upgrade these and check hard drive space delete unwanted programs also. One other suggestion is to upgrade to Win 7 Vista is quirky to say the least. If you do not have the memory or other resources to run Win 7 I would consider Win XP even know they are closing out their updates it is less draining on your computers resources.
