Computer very slow

This can be a number of things but usually over time the system gets clogged up with junk stuff. The best thing is to save all that you want to a separate drive then reinstall operating system ie windows.

Remove Unnessary Startup Programs

sometimes when you install programs, the program sets its self as a start-up program. this slows down your computer.
so to get rid of these safely i use CCleaner

after installation run the program and select tools and then Startup

make shure that you don't remove stuff like
Video card software
also all windows files won't show up on the list so you can't make your machien unbootable.

the best part of this program is that it removes junk files

Why does it take a very long time to open a laptop or file?

If you posted the Acer Model and the OS you are using it would be helpful. If you are referring to a slow Boot and slow running I would start by Cleaning the junk from your machine and disabling startup and running processes. Run a Full scan with your up-to-date Anti Virus. Run a Full Scan with Freeware MALWAREBYTES: Uncheck the Trial Pro version, you want the freeware version. Run a FULL Scan, delete ALL results, reboot. Download freeware CCLEANER to clean the junk from your machine, in the TOOLS section, STARTUP section, Disable ALL unnecessary startup programs, reboot. With out knowing your OS I'll give you a Windows 7 procedure to increase speed:,2817,2364937,00.asp This is a start, you can also add more memory, faster HDD, etc. As the computer gets used more and more software and junk is added slowing it down, get rid of the junk and unnecessary startup programs.

Computer running slow, how can I reboot and get rid of extra junk

Run a defrag on all your drives and clean up temp files. There is a free utility that cleans up pretty good and it's called CCleaner.
It's very important to defrag the HDD though.

Well, generally speaking there are a number of reasons that may causing a Mac computer running slow, but commonly two factors: hardware part & system part. For hardware part: I guess it's OK if your Mac is not that old. For system part: there might be a lot of junk files, caches, registry errors... out there which largely slow down any Mac machines. about 80% slow Mac caused by this reason, if so, try cleaning the system from:

Presario V5000 -- Junk from BEST BUY

Well Colleen, I thank you for writing this as detailed as possible, You can always run a disk cleanup, (Start > My computer > Right click C: > Properties > Disk Cleanup, Under General Tab)

That will get rid of junk, Or you could Defrag the computer
(Start>My computer> Rightclick C: > Properties > Tools Tab > Defragment now)
Defrag will take all sorts of junk in a file and sort them in a folder, giving your computer more memory, You could also manually delete everything by going to the root of it all, Or you could buy more memory.
