There are several things that can make a computer run slow that didn't run slow before:

1. the drive windows is on (typically C drive) is too full. Try going in internet explorer and TOOLS, OPTIONS and delete the temp internet files there.

2. Spyware! Get Spybot Search and Destroy, get the updates and run it then get rid of the spyware it finds. (don't be fooled by some of the other spyware removers! Some cause way more trouble and are actually spyware itself! Adaware is another one that works but be careful it is adAware and not "adware" )

3. Not enough Ram. Windows takes at least 256 mbs to run by itself. So you need to have more than that, much more if doing games, streaming videos or graphics.

Start with those three things as those are the most common problems.

Computer running slowly


Wen you say the computer is running slowly, do you mean the overall programs or just Internet (browser)???

If it's the computer, first check all components (RAM, HARD DRIVE, NETWORK CARD, etc...) than check for VIRUS, MALWARE, SPYWARE, etc..

If it's the Internet connection, first check the modem connectivity, the router's connectivity, wiring, wireless connectivity, etc..., call your Internet provider to make sure they don't have any connection problems, do a speed test, (www.speedtest.net)

GOOD LUCK!

Computer runs too slowly and ''grinds''


Depending on the situation, It could be you need more ram. If your running Windows Vista, 2-3 years old computers are probably coming with about 512mb-2 gb's or ram. In which case grab at least 3 gb's or ram and you'll be ok. If it's an xp system. grab at least 1gb or ram. Internet delay though could possibly be due to your ISP or perhaps a virus/spyware. There are certain viruses and spyware that slow down internet connection while leaving your pc running fast.
