Goto Strart and then Run

Now right click My Computer and go to properties tab.

goto 'Advanced' click on 'change' and increase your virtual memory to 2048 in both spaces.

To quickly restart windows press CNTRL+ALt+DEL
inside task manager you will find all the open applications .
right click on each applicaion and click on end process tree then ok

Close all your apps like this and you will find your windows a lot faster and now you can reboot or turn off your windows as usual from start button.



There are many things that might cause your PC to run slowly. It could be a fragmented disk; fragmented registry; a virus, trojan, or spyware; high CPU and/or utilization due to too many programs running; high disk I/O; or something else.

To check your CPU and memory utilization, run Task Manager. You can start Task Manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and then clicking on the Task Manager button. In Task manager, click on the Performance tab and check CPU Usage and PF Usage. PF Usage is an indicator of memory usage. If one or both of these is high, click on the Processes tab, and sort the columns by CPU or Memory to see what processes are consuming the resource. If you are not sure what the process "Image name" is for, google the name and you should find what the process is for.

If your CPU and memory usage are reasonable, then you may have a different issue. Even if you running anti-virus software, it may be beneficial to scan your PC with another scanner to check for viruses. No anti-virus software is 100% perfect at catching everything. Here are a few good free online virus scanners that you can run to check your PC:

My laptop hangs when i open a progamme and see movie, my laptop is Dell vostro 1088, i installed new version of bios, but still hangs... i also format several times..how will solve this problem


You mentioned opening a program and watching a movie and it hangs, remove one stick of ram and see if there is a difference, if no! remove second stick and put back the first and test again, if this solves the problem the memory needs to be replaced.

My computer is hanging


there are many reasons why computers hang, i will site some
examples and possible solutions:

it hangs probbly because you open a program or application that
is out of the capability of your pc, refer to your computer specification
and compare it to the specification require of the program or application you might want to install or run in your computer.

Another thing, computer might hang because it has full of junk files, something like temporary files saved from internet, there might also some registry values in your pc that is not needed and causes some
error or trouble that leads to hanging. All of this junk files and registry
should be cleaned or deleted. Try to download and install "CCleaner"
from Filehippo.com.

Hope all of this will help to everyone...Thanks
