What are the specific topic about computers?

Not sure what are referring to or what you need.

Web Design and Programming

Writing your research paper on web design or programming can also include both subjects, depending on your knowledge and your own preferences.

Some web design languages include HTML, CSS and PHP, all popular coding languages when building and operating basic websites.

Many free tutorials and resource guides are available online that include coding and instructions.

Some programming languages for the computer include C++, C, Visual Basic and Java.

All of these programs vary in their abilities and extent of creation.

You can choose one subject from web designing and one from programming to write your research paper on and combine them effectively into one paper.

Because every computer coding language has an array of subtopics and research points, you can decide which topic you want to be primary in focus and which you want to be secondary.

Searching and Using the Internet

Using the basics of the Internet is a skill that develops after extensive Internet use and use of related online tools.

Learning how to properly use popular search engines is a skill that is growing in demand as the number of people on the Internet grows.

Writing on various search engines such as Google, Bing and Yahoo allows you to compare each of the systems, or you can write on a specific search engine website and how to use it properly.

Shopping Safely Online

Shopping securely online is a growing demand as the number of online stores grows and payment options expand to allow nearly everyone the capability to shop.

Many online stores and websites use an "SSL" (Secure Sockets Layer), which allows shoppers and visitors to the website to browse safely while entering their personal information and financial data.

Learning how to verify if an SSL is in use on a website would be a valuable skill to all shoppers.

Avoiding Viruses and Malware

You can write your computing research paper on viruses and malware, along with spyware, which all circulate the Internet and sometimes programs themselves.

Malware, spyware and viruses can all slow and infect users' computers, eventually ruining them entirely if they are devastating enough.

Virus programs, their prevention and browsing the Internet safely are all valid topics when writing on malware and computer viruses.

Hope this helps.

My computor is taking a long time to get onto web site

Hi there,

Usually this occurs due to various reasons. I would suggest a few steps to troubleshoot the issue.

Open the web browser you're using to browse the pages. Check for the tool bars that may be installed.These toolbars gets installed automatically while downloading any applications or files in the Computer. If any toolbars are installed please uninstall them. These toolbars can slow down connecting to the internet.

In order to uninstall these toolbar, perform the below steps:

1. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Add or Remove Programs.
2. Under Change or Remove Programs, check the presence of the name of the toolbar in the list of installed programs.
3. Please uninstall the program from the list and check if this resolves the issue.
After performing the above, I would recommend you to restart the Computer once before you access the internet.

I would also suggest that you try deleting cookies, history files and temporary internet files.Please view the below article to view the steps:

I would also suggest that you disable the Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6). Please refer the below article to view the steps:

Also try using different web browsers like Firefox, Safari, Opera etc., and check if the issue still persists.

I would also suggest that you boot the Computer into Safe mode with Networking option. Please refer the below article to view the steps to start the Computer in "Safe mode with Networking" option.

Please check if the browser is still taking a lot of time to open a web page. If the web page open normally, then I guess it is required to upgrade RAM of the Computer.

Please check whether the issue started after installing any application. If yes, try uninstalling the application and check if this resolves the issue.

If the web page opens slowly, then I suggest that you reinstall the Operating System.

If you are using "Internet Explorer" as your web browser:

  1. Open Internet Explorer
  2. Goto "Tool"
  3. Goto "Internet Options"
  4. Under "Browsing History", hit "Delete"
  5. On the next box hit "Delete All"
This will delete everything in the search bar.

If you are using "Mozilla FireFox" as your browser:
  1. Open FireFox
  2. Goto "Tools"
  3. Goto "Clear Private Data" or "Clear Recent History"
  4. Select all checkboxes
  5. Click "Clear Now"

That will clean you right up. You can also download a program called "CCleaner". After you browse the web, run that program and it deletes all of your searching and browsing history along with temporary files left behind from the browser

There are a few things you can do to help your computer to run faster. First is do a disc cleanup. Go to "Start", "All Programs", "Accessories", "System Tools", then click "Disc Cleanup", it'll walk you through the rest.

Next go to the control panel and remove programs that are taking up space that you don't use a lot. Browse your computer and delete old fiels saved on your computer you no longer use.

Also, change your start up programs. You could have a lot of programs opening up when your computer starts that you don't use. Go to the control panel, click "Performance" and on the left hand side you will see "Manage start-up programs" and Disable programs that you aren't using often so they won't boot up everytime you reboot your computer.
