What is the operating system? Windows 98, Me, 2K, or XP.

    The first thing to check for is spyware or virus.

    Then if the computer is clean, try to see if you can disable some programs from startup, sometimes you have too many programs competing for the system resources in your computer.

    We can then go from here.

Kohls website also crashes all the time on my dell inspiron laptop

Are you running ABP or Ghostery on your browser? Those extensions are designed to streamline your browsing experience by removing ads, but can actually slow it down or even freeze it on merchant sites like Kohls. Try pausing the extension and reloading the page. You might also have some bloatware slowing you down. Try click Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools and running Disk Cleanup. Or go to your Control Panel and into Programs and Features and check for any software you don't remember installing. You might want to also download a free malware removal tool like Malwarebytes and run it to check for any potentially unwanted programs that might be running in the background.

My laptop is sort of running slower and I wondered if it was because my space is almost full on my laptop? And I also wanted to know if I can do anything to make it go back to normal. One other thing is...

First of all, simply delete your browsing history and cookies. Websites will sometimes download cookies or copies of their pages to your hard drive for faster loading later. The unfortunate thing is that this can slow down your pc. Using your browser, delete your browsing history, cookies, and all offline content.

If your computer takes a long time to boot up, take note of how many programs you have loading on start up. Pay attention to the bottom right of your screen and watch the icons. Having a large amount of programs loading on start up will make your boot times considerably slower. Open these programs and tell them not to start on start-up, or simply delete them if you don't use them.

Sometimes spyware or other malware will be downloaded to your computer and can adversly affect performance. I suggest downloading a spyware deleting program like Lavasoft's AdAware. It is free and reliable. When you use it, make sure that you update the definitions each time to make sure you search for the newest spyware. Try running the tests at least once a week.

My laptop running slow and net browsing very slow my configeration windows7 original ,320 gb HD,3GB memorry

There are several reason for the computer to be running slow for the start please try restarting the computer to safe mode with networking (Steps given below) and check if your browsing speed is better. If your internet browsing speed not better in safe mode with networking then you need to contact your ISP to complain about slow speed.

If it is working fine in safe mode, then some of the software (example: Antivirus / Internet Security / Firewall) is slowing down your computer. Please try removing it. Also try reducing the color scheme, use a non aero theme and see if your comptuer is working fine. If so your processor is not able to take the load of windows 7 visual effects aswell as other programs running in the background at the same time

My pc is slow run

Free up disk space. A hard drive that is close to being full will drastically slow down your computer. You can clear up space by deleting temporary internet files, empty your recycle bin, remove programs that you do not use, put important files on an external hard drive.
Another way to free up disk space is to use "Disk Cleanup" on your Windows PC. To do this, click "start" and go to "Accessories", go to "System Tools", and click "Disk Cleanup".
Scan for Viruses, Adware, and Spyware. These nasty programs can slow down your computer worse than anything. I would recommend purchasing software that can remove all three of these common problems.
Don't automatically start up programs when you turn your computer on. Close any programs that you do not use that open when you start up your computer. These programs will run in the background and steal RAM (Random Access Memory).

Internet connection is too slow and browsing is too slow. How can i set to a faster browsing solution or any software to be download to make it faster to browse into the internet

Download Malware Bytes from and run the quick scan.

Also, Go to the Control Panel and to Internet Options and delete all cookies and temporary internet files.

Do you have anti-virus software? Make sure you run that periodically. If not then AVG free is not bad.

Also bare in mind the time of day will affect browsing performance as well as what else you are doing at the same time (such as downloading or running other programs on your pc).

Hope that helps

Acer extensa 4420 iyr old upgraded to 4g /160g. Its slow surfing. No programs really. I run mcafee and use tune up, cc cleaner, spybot. Will a more expensive in ternet package make a diff ?

Is the laptop generally slow or only the net browsing is slower? McAfee and Spybot tend to slow down the system.
Try other AV programs., Avira is best, very light on the system and high virus detection rates.
Hope this solves your problem. Thanks.
