Very slow on start up

Uninstall any unwanted software by using control panel, ADD/Remove Software. move any photos, mp3s etc to a CD or external drive.
install and run some anti spyware software like ADAWARE (free download) then
click my computer right click your C drive
left click properties click tools tab click defragment now click defragment button (and leave running for a few hours) this will place all your framented files which slow down disk read access into sequential (single part) files

finally to make a real difference add more memory (thats RAM not hard disk)

hope this helps Richard

When playing online games, my computer runs really slow, and at least once a week i get a pop-up stating that the virtual memory is low - how do I fix it?

The easiest way is to add more RAM memory. More RAM = faster computer.

Go to WWW.CRUCIAL.COM and run their SCAN MY COMPUTER option.

This will tell you excatly how much RAM you currently have installed in your system as well as how much room you have to add more if you want. It will tell you all the specs you will need to buy new RAM memory sticks and easily upgrade your computer's performance.

Good luck and please post back if this was helpful or if you need further assistance.

You didn't say which version of Windows you have or how old your computer is. (1)If you have Windows XP or Vista, when you first got your computer you should have made a Restore Disk backup, and have done this periodically. You can go to the first Restore backup and do a System Restore, which will take you to an previous setting or you can do a clean install by saving your data, and reinstalling your Operating System. ( 2)The only other option you have is to add memory to your system, if it can take it. If you have the minimum amount of memory, the system will have to divide a;; it's memory into 2 or more tasks, thus slowing it down; adding more memory will speed it up. How much more you can add to your system should be explained in your manual or go to the manufacturer's website and find your answer there.

Computer is very slow.

McAfee virus software is a memory hog. You need to add more memory to your pc. It uses pc3200 memory. This computer has a memory capacity of 4gigabytes. The memory slots are numbered this way......starting from the memory slot closest to the processor>
one, three, two, four. 1 and 2 work together, 3 and 4 work together. So if you buy just 2 gigabytes......put them in 1 and 2. This will help. Sounds like the virus software is doing a full system could do a "quick"scan and do a "full" scan once a week....

Add Memory

it depends, you will want to check the type of memory first, and make sure you are purchasing the correct type. Also, if you have memory slots that are different colors, you will want to put the memory in two similar colors. also, i would advise buying a set of 2 1gb sticks of ram that are dual-channel capable, and removing the old memory. Otherwise the old stick of memory will significantly slow down the speed the new stick can run at. Memory is extremely cheap at, you can get 2gb ddr2 ram for under $30.
