    faster than when new or just faster.
    no PC is fast enough, buy new one>?
    speed is relative metric.
    no PC told at all, not even a clue. wow.
    but in general, lets say you said my old PC is now slower than when new.
    1:all PCs with HDD go slower as the hdd ages.
    2:same for HDD near full or full.
    3:OS is corrupted (none told) as it ages it gets that way, for sure opening email attachments or visting bad web sites.
    4:PC is overheating all PCs slow down when too hot to save them selves from damage, CPU logic hard.
    answer #2:
    my PC is not slower than , now, wow. clear no?
    get SSD drive.
    add more RAM
    fresh install that unstated OS.
    get faster CPU
    and or a faster GPU (desktops) no PC told so the PC field is wide no?

    last , are all things slow or just gaming.
    no statement of what is slow. PCs do 10,000 things, are all slow?
    all mouse clicks slow? (is there a mouse?)

    NO PC told at all nor what options are in it.
    (size of ram, is PC with SDD< or slug HDD)
    how old is the PC, ? 1 year 10 years what"?

What is happening with AOL? I have been having lots of pop ups, slow computer and AOL telling me they are having problems? My computer very slow?

Is you computer slow when using software offline? If so, it is either AOL or your internet. Don't judge the speed strictly by going to AOL. Go to Speakeasy Speed Test and test your internet speed. If that shows your internet is running at the speed you are paying for, it si AOL having trouble. You don't say which browser you are using, but most browsers have an option to block pop-ups. Make sure it is on.
Run a virus scan on your PC to see if it is infected. Also defrag your hard drive to speed it up some.

Computer too slow to play song

Computer memory and processor speed are the things that make a computer too slow for music playback. Also check your system for routine maintenance. Use the Computer Cleanup utility in Windows. Although this will help, the system may not have enough memory or processor speed to playback.

Runs slow on video downloads

Hello Sir,

downloading speed depends on internet connection not on PC specification.

If your transfer is low then downloading will also be low.

Take note that source from which you are downloading also must have reliable connection.
