Is it the internet that runs slow or everything? either way, go to the following site:

click on the link that says "Scan Now. Its Free!" it will do an online virus scan of your computer, and this should get rid of any viruses you have. You may have to install Java for it to work. If so, it should provide a link to install it. If it doesnt, google "java software" and download the software. it may also be a RAM problem (not enough computer memory) but thats probably not as likely if your computer is new. Also, you can go the task manager and delete all of the processes that you think arent needed (such as itunes, etc. make sure that your user name is under the user name column for each one you are deleting, and DO NOT delete the "explorer" process or any system processes). And this may speed up your computer as well.

Not responding programs

Your computer is possibly infected by virus or malware.
Boot up into safemode with networking by pressing the F8 key as the computer boots up. Now if you can go online download and install advanced system care 8 which is free and do a full scan of your computer.Afterwards reboot your computer and see if it is running better.

Very slow my computer vista..pls help me

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

Computer very slow ,won't print,forever to load pages, have corrupted files

Several things can slow down the computer: overheating, spyware, not enough RAM etc. If you know for sure you have corrupted files were they corrupted by a virus? You may need to reinstall Vista.

Is it slow when you boot up in safe mode? To boot into safe mode hit (usually) F8 while it is booting up. Let it completely boot into safe mode and then reboot again. Now is if it is behaving better.

To get rid of spyware download the free Spybot Search & Destroy from the net, run the update and then run it to dectect and get rid of the spyware. Spyware tries to send info which can slow down everything.

Overheating - does it feel hot? Is the fan running and pushing air?

If it worked fine before it is unlikely you don't have enough RAM. Windows itself needs at least 256mbs to run well without running other problems.

Again if you know files are corrupted, if they are windows files, you might need to reinstall vista.

I have an Acer aspire 5715-4713 Windows vista hp from 2007. It has become really slow, and i dont know if i have any virus, cause i use nod32. pls help

you may have spyware in addition to a virus, if any. download malwarebytes from and after installing it, update it to the most recent database and scan your computer. Secondly, click start, and from the run line type msconfig and enter. Click the startup tab, and uncheck any programs that you don't want to start automatically every time you turn your computer on (they will still be installed).

Slow process

there could be programmes running at startup that you don't need at that time, go to start-run-type "msconfig" click on "startup" tab, uncheck any startup items you don't need.
Before doing this, its a good idea to backup your registry so that if problems arise, you can restore to original.
A highly recommended backup utility for the registry is ERUNT, just type ERUNT into google for the details.
Also you should run an anti-virus scan to check for any malware.
