Uninstall any unwanted software by using control panel, ADD/Remove Software. move any photos, mp3s etc to a CD or external drive.
install and run some anti spyware software like ADAWARE (free download) then
click my computer right click your C drive
left click properties click tools tab click defragment now click defragment button (and leave running for a few hours) this will place all your framented files which slow down disk read access into sequential (single part) files

finally to make a real difference add more memory (thats RAM not hard disk)

hope this helps Richard

My computer is too slow - how do I make it faster?


Slow Start Up
There can be a variety of reasons to Windows loading slow during start up. Go to Run, type msconfig and hit enter. Under the 'Start Up' tab, uncheck the unwanted programs and press OK. Things should be a bit fine the next time Windows boots.
Another program worth mentioning here is StartUp Delayer which will help in setting after how much time programs should be loaded after Windows boots. For instance, you could set your instant messenger program to load 50 seconds after Windows starts up.
Slow Loading Start Menu
If the Start Menu items are loading slowly, you can open the Registry Editor by typing in the Run menu 'regedit.exe' and pressing Enter. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop. Look for MenuShowDelay, and double click to edit the value. The lower the number specified, the faster the Start Menu will load.
Slow Right Click Context Menu
Probably the Windows Right Click menu on your computer is loading slow because too many programs added unwanted entries there. Just download this program called Mmm, install it and then modify your context menu to remove unwanted items to speed it up.
win-fixes-send-to.jpg Slow Send To Menu
If the Send To menu loads slowly, you can type 'sendto' in the Run Dialog, and remove unwanted items in the Explorer Window that appears. This should add some speed to it.


Slow Defragmentation
The Windows Defragmenter can't get any slower. You need to have an alternative to the Windows Defragmenter, and Defraggler is just one of the best ones available in the market. It's free, and works like a charm and can speed up defragmentation manifold. For some alternatives, see Five Free Programs to Defragment your PC.

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.

My 2003 superglide is slow to start have new battery


Check all connections for solidness and cleanliness. Any damage to the cable?

When you say slow to start ... this can be read two ways ... slowness of the starter or slowness to fire and actually start. I spoke about the first already ... If the second, it may be time for a professional tuneup ... you know ... carb cleaning and adjustment - points - plugs - filters ... what ever it takes to return the bile to factory specs.

Slow slow slow slow


Try disabling apps in start up by typing msconfig in start menu. Or try booting in safe mode(press f8 key when rebooting) and try doing a virus/malware scan or disable start up apps in safe mode also.!

Slow cooker will only stay on warm. How do I put


This slow cooker has 3 settings LOW, HIGH, & WARM
When you plug the slow cooker in the display should show a "0". When you press the "COOK TIME" button, the display should go to 1 then 2 then 3 etc. each time the "COOK TIME" button is pressed. If 1,2,3,4,5 or 6 hours are selected, then the slow cooker will operate on the "HIGH" setting. If 7,8,9, or 10 hours are selected, then the slow cooker will operate on the "LOW" setting. To start the cooking cycle press the "ON/OFF" button. To interrupt the cooking cycle at any time, press the "ON/OFF" button. When the cooking cycle is complete, your slow cooker will automatically switch to the "WARM" setting. If the "ON/OFF" button is pressed when the the digital display shows "0", then the slow cooker will automatically start on the "WARM" setting.
If the "COOK TIME" button does not change the display numbers then unplug the slow cooker and hold both buttons down as you plug the slow cooker in. Keep the buttons pressed for a count of ten, then release them and the slow cooker should work correctly

How do I start the cooker on low?


The manual says "When your corningware slow cooker is initially plugged into a wall outlet, the display will show"0". This display indicates the programmed number of hours for which a meal will cook.

The slow cooker can be programmed in one hour increments from 1 to 10 on your digital display. The number of hours may be selected by pushing the COOK TIME button until the desired cooking time appears.

If 1,2,3,4,5 or 6 hours are selected, then the slow cooker will operate on HIGH setting. If 7,8,9 or 10 hours are selected, then the slow cooker will operate on the low setting.

To start the cooking cycle press the ON/OFF button. To interrupt the cooking cycle at anytime, press the ON/OFF button. If the ON/OFF button is pressed when the digital display shows "0", then the slow cooker will automatically start on the WARM setting.

When the full cooking cycle is complete, your corningware slow cooker will automatically switch to the warm setting, to keep food at a warm serving temperature."

If, after you plug the slow cooker into the outlet, the COOK TIME button does not work, unplug the cooker, hold both ON/OFF and COOK TIME buttons down, plug into wall socket and wait till the display flashes. Release both buttons and the slow cooker buttons should both work.

Slow start-up


check if you have a CD left in the cdrom drive.
Lots of things can cause the start-up delay too:
- virus and spywares. Clean.
- bad sectors on hard disk (backup and plan for replacement)
- low physical memory. check in the Performace tab of the Taskbar (window$$$ only) PF should not be more than that of physical
