    This did not really fix my problem. I am now getting locked up when I am on the internet and the connection time is still slow although a little better than before. I am getting constant error messages which tell me program is not responding.

Type MSCONFIG in Run box on Start Menu.
Go to StartUp tab. Uncheck any programs you think you do not need.
You can always put them back later by checking the box again if you find you do need it.

How to clean up start up processes


Questions about optimize start up:
How to remove program from start up?
My computer boots very slow? How do I clean up start up processes?
Windows startup very slow, how to fix it?

Why clean up start up processes?
Windows Startup program will load the default programs or processes you add to your computer. The test result shows a new system only boot within 30 seconds. As you install antivirus program or other applications, it becomes very slow. Sometimes, the startup gets bloated not due to your computer behaviors. Malicious software is prone to add useless processes on startup without your known. You are not aware that your computer becomes more and more slow until serious computer problem occurs. Don’t ignore a slow start up, it is the root of Blue Screen and computer freezing.

How to clean up start up processes?
The first thing you should do is to remove spyware or adware from your computer. I prefer to AVG, it is a free anti-virus program. If you want to clean virus completely, you need boot in safe mode and disconnect your Internet.

Hok is a professor with over ten year’s computer experience. He suggest us use ErrorFix. This is a pc optimize tool which can clean up system registry entries, useless program, start up processes and junk files. With this program, your computer will be obviously improved. Just a few clicks, you can remove processes that slow your computer.

What’s more to speed up your computer?
Do not download Peer-to-Peer Download Software! Maybe you are using some software such like YouTube Downloader. These are probably some of the least likely contenders for system-slowdown but they are popular on the internet. Those kinds of program can take up memory space and damage your computer. Also they can automatically add itself as your start up.

Slow computer, tried all options


I'm confused when you say "eating 100s of mbs of data while on internet within a hour". Please clarify.

First, go to Start,, Run,, and type in the box msconfig
The "Startup tab" will show all your startup programs (the ones checkmarked). Examine those for any unusual ones listed. (I keep my system clean with only about 4-5 startup programs). If yours is a long list that will slow down your system.

I'd also run a disk check. Right click on C drive, select properties, tools, error checking, checkmark "automatically fix file system errors". It will run on reboot.

Then install Malwarebytes from their own site, update malware definitions and run a scan. Afterward, the ones best to help you would be on a forum such as on Malwarebytes, as it can be a long involved process to determine if your system is free of malware.
BTW, when was the last time you did a disk defragmentation? Do that also, but I have a feeling you have hidden malware on your system.

My laptop is running very slow on the internet, A box has appeared to say that there are 49 open connections. What are these and how do I find them .


I would suggest doing some house-cleaning using some Freeware programs. CCleaner: http://filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ In the TOOLS section, STARTUP , disable ALL unnecessary startup programs. Malwarebytes: http://filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ Make sure to UN-CHECK/UN-TICK the Trial Pro Version during the install, you want the freeware version. Run a full scan. Also, take a look at these tips: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/10-things/10-ways-to-speed-up-windows-7/
REBOOT YOUR LAPTOP after these procedures.
In IE locate the TOOLS Icon (Top right Gear icon), open Internet options, Programs tab, select Manage add-ons, disable/remove ALL Toolbars in Toolbars and Extensions, select Search Providers, disable ALL except Google. If you haven't already download GOOGLE CHROME and try to load the same website, any difference? Are you using a Secure Connection? Home? Wireless? Wired? For further suggestions reply to this post.

Acer 4620 slow internet connection


Can you be a bit more specific? On IE? Download Google Chrome, use it from comparison . I would assume you need to trim down the Add ons on IE? Open Control Panel, Internet Options, Programs tab, open Manage Add Ons, Toolbars and Extentions, Disable/Remove ALL toolbars and unnessary extentions. In Search Providers, Remove/Disable ALL unnessary Search Providers, set Google as default and check the two boxes in the left bottom. Run a FULL Scan with freeware MALWAREBYTES: http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ In the install UNCHECK the TRIAL PRO version, you want the freeware version. Run a FULL Scan and Delete ALL results and reboot. Use CCLEANER at : http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ This freeware program will clean the junk and free up disk space. In the TOOLS section, STARTUP section, Disable ALL unnessary startup programs. Is your Internet connection Wired or Wireless? If wireless , is it Secured? Have you contacted your ISP?

Yahoo.com & mail account is notwork properly is working is very slow


Is your internet connection very slow, or are only www.yahoo.com, and www.mail.com very slow, with the rest of the internet pages loading at normal speed.

If internet is very slow the fault can be either with your machine or the internet service is slow. Most internet services become slow at times. Maybe in the after noons or public holidays service might not be good. If your machine has slowed down after some time there are many things to do to speed it up. You can use free programs like cccleaner, from the internet to clean the computers registry and remove junk files. Defragging your cmputer can also help speed it up

If the fault is not with your internet connection, or computer but only these email accounts consider the following possiblities.

are you unable to log in because you have forgotten the logon password?
Or are you able tolog in without difficulty, whereas emails and folders take a long time to open.?

www.mail.com gets a slowness problem which gets better when you enable java and javascript on your browser. To enable javascript in internet explorer go to
tools>internet options> and click on SECURITY tab and choose CUSTOM LEVEL
scroll to the bottom, make sure ENABLE is selected for ALLOW ACTIVE SCRIPTING

Install java from www.java,com for mail.com to open faster

also in www.mail.com choose the USA option or Intermational option depending on whether you are inside or outside the USA


In the case of www.yahoo.com well in my case someone hacked it and it was slow because someone was messing around with it, but after "they" left things are more back to normal.
