There could be a lot of reasons. It may be old, it may have a lot of spyware on it or a virus, it may be fragmented, it may have very little space on the HDD, etc.

To get it to run a little faster download, install and run CCleaner and Malwarebytes. Those two programs should help fix a lot of problems. If it's still running slow download and install a free defragger and run that.

Get rid viruses


Hey Camry, if you believe your computer is running slow due to viruses then run an antivirus program. I recommend AVG AntiVirus (it's also free). Before you download it make sure you uninstall other antivirus programs on your computer if you have any. More than one can really mess with your computer. Once you download it, scan your computer. Then scan for malware (most likely you have malware and not virus). Download Spybot or malwarebytes (this should not interfere with AVG) and scan for malware. Then just restart your computer and hopefully it goes a little bit faster. I say little bit because usually there more problems than just malware issues. Such as not enough space on you hard drive. Delete things you do not NEED. Freeing up space can really improve the speed of your computer. Also, if your computer is getting hot (if you feel it or you hear your fan running full speed) I suggest you get a laptop fan. My laptop has no virus or malware and only has half of the memory used and is 5 years old (Dell latitude) but when it gets hot (my average temp for dual core: 75 degrees C). This really slows down my computer. You can download programs that will tell you the temp of your laptop. Also make sure you shut your laptop down once in a while to clear the RAM.
Sorry it is so lengthy but there is so much that one can do to make the laptop go faster. I hope this helps you though, if it does not give me your feedback. Good luck. - Joe.

Hey, ever since my system upgraded to explorer 9, it has been really slow, why is it doing this, i just bought my computer a week ago and i dont download anything, so what would be the reason for it...


If you are on a router with other computers if someone else is using Torrents it will slow down all the computers on the network even if you are not downloading anything will slow it down, Explorer 9 go to control panel then add remove programmes and un-install it. before you un-install explorer 9 make sure you download google chrome by using this link www.google.com/chrome as its faster than most browsers out there and will speed up your computer too.

The first thing I would try to do, is to download the latest drivers from the website and see if that helps.

if the computer is going really slow, you might also have spyware or virus, you may want to check for that.
you can download spybot search and destroy at www.safer-networking.org
or spybot at www.lavasoft.com
they are both free
you can also d/l antivirus software at www.eset.com good for 30 days

Everythimg is slow


Beatriceccc: This can frequently happen when Vista runs on a computer that's hardware just can't keep up with it. I'd like to have you try this for me. Click on your start menu, then "Right click" on "computer" in the left column.This will take you to a page, that will give you something called the Microsoft Rating. If you can comment back to this post with the details of the overall rating, as well as the specific categories, we'll be able to provide better assistance.
Was this computer pre-installed with vista? or did you upgrade from XP? What is the model number of your machine? All of this will help us to help you.

Slow slow slows down my computer!!


Normal 0 There are a number of things that can cause the computer or the camera to freeze up or slow down.
First I’d check to see how much memory is installed in the computer. It takes additional memory to operate the camera.
Hope this helps. Bud

Fan Running, computer heating, task bar disappearing, everything is slow


It sounds like you've already started doing some things that can help you discover what is causing this problem, and that's good, but before I offer any more ideas, can you please tell me two things:

1. How much RAM (memory) does your computer have?

2. How much total hard disk space does your computer have, and of that, how much is available?
