Minimize Number of Programs atStart-Up If you are running too many programsat start-up this can be a cause of Windows Vista running slowly. So try tominimize the number of programs running at start-up. Follow these steps todisable start-up programs. 1. Click Start
2. Select Run
3. In the dialog box type MsConfig
4. Press Enter, a pop-up window will appear on your screen
5. Click on Start-up
6. Uncheck unwanted services and programs from startup
7. Press OK
8. Restart your PC b> Increase System Memory Most of us ignore the issue ofmemory when Windows Vista runs so slow. Many old computers came with 512 MB ofRAM and on such PC's Windows XP runs well but if you want to run Windows Vistaon such a PC you should have at least 1 GB of RAM for smooth performance. b> Clean Out Viruses While surfing the internet somemalicious applications are downloaded and installed automatically in oursystem. These malicious applications decrease the performance of any operatingsystem, Windows Vista run so slow due to these infected files. To get rid ofthese malicious applications you must download and install a powerful Virus andSpyware cleaner. Run a full PC virus scan and remove all the viruses, malwareand other infected files. b> Clean Out Registry Windows registry contains registrykeys of all the applications that you run on your PC and there are some entriesthat result in corruption in the registry. Corrupt registry problem cannot befixed by scanning your PC for viruses and spy-wares because registry errorscannot be detected by antivirus. For this you need a good registry cleaner andPC optimizer such as reginout.

There's alot of reasons your pc is running slow, could be, not enough ram, could be Registry errors or virus. Vista will start slower tahn other Win version because it runs so many things at start up. Do you have virus protection and /or a registry cleaner? Do you know how to clean and defragment your discs? Let me know at "add a comment"

Glad to HELP YOU!

I'd suggest you - FIRST OF ALL - to check if your SYSTEM is meeting the Vista requirements:
- 800 MHz processor
- 512 Mb of RAM (at least)
- DirectX 9 class graphic card
- 32 Mb of graphics memory.
If all above are met than you can also do (to SPEED UP your computer):
- defragment your hard drive
- remove all unused shortcuts and files from the desktop
- setup your system for NO ANIMATED WINDOWS and choose STABILITY from
START > CONTROL PANEL > SYSTEM > ADVANCED SYSTEM SETTINGS.

GOOD LUCK!

Vista is slow


The slowness of Vista depends on the components that you have for the computer. Did you buy your computer with Win Vista installed? If you upgraded your computer from XP to Vista, you have to make sure that it is covered by the system requirements of Vista.

If you have a brand new computer with Vista installed in it, then there could be a little glitch on the program. I've used different kinds of Vista (Home Premium, Vista Business and Vista Ultimate) but none of them worked slow. If that's a brand new computer, I would suggest to contact the manufacturer or the reseller.

Have a great day!

How to remove Vista Basic from the Toshiba L30 Notebook


Ok heres what I did to remove Vista and Install XP.

Remember when you do this you will loose everything on the computer so back up all you documents, pictures favorites and anything else you want to keep. Remember also that you will be starting with a fresh install and will have to install ALL your programs again. A good idea is to find the XP drivers for your computer before you do this. The Vista drivers WILL NOT WORK

First of all you need to get Vista off of the hard drive. I used partition manager and deleted the partition. Then I formated the hard drive as a Promary drive with an NTFS file system you can use 32 bit file system but NTFS Is more stable, faster and can cope with huge file sizes.

Then you need to boot with a windows XP bootable installation.
Thats it your done, just install xp, wait till it gets done and the fun begins.

Vista really slow even after clean install with 6400 AMD 9800GX2 and 2GB ram and m2n32-SLI deluxe


Hello,

Vista is faster when it is clean install. the only reason when computer come to very slow when the hard drive is defective. or there is a hardware that defective also. please remove some hardware one by one and test. like CD?DVD ROM and others,

REfix also the memory and then obesrved the computer, if all the suspected hardware were remove and same performance maybe you need to replace the harddrive:
