There are many reasons causing a PC to slow down performance. The outdated hardware or poor system maintenance is the major reasons. If possible, try to upgrade hardware configuration such as add more RAM, Processor etc.

Otherwise use the best antivirus software to diagnose the and clean junk files. This method surly will increase the speed of your computer.

Reason : The reason many systems start running slow as more programs are installed is because many operating systems start unnecessary programs(or services as the case may be) while the computer starts. The best example of this is starting the Printer and/or Wireless service even when we may not use/have a printer &/or wireless

Solution : As i am acquainted with only Windows and Linux i can provide help on those.

1. In Windows XP/Vista/7/8
go to start menu right click my computer-> Manage-> services and applications -> services. <Caution>
2. Google the service names on Internet and see if they are needed by your system
3. Mostly people without printers can stop permanently the printer service (spoolsv.exe) service (u can start this when needed).
4. Stop all the unnecessary processes permanently.
5. start the processes if required by some programs.

For Linux go to system monitor and do the same as above.

P.S.
In windows use antivirus such as avast(takes only two minutes to update and does not hog the computer down) along with a firewall such as ZoneAlarm(beginners) or Comodo (for advanced users)
these will keep the pc running free of viruses and malicious programs.
Use ccleaner to get rid of unwanted files.
Regularly defragment drives with tools such as Ultradefrag or Defraggler.

P.P.S. All these files for windows are regularly available for download with updates at www.filehippo.com.

You are Welcome.

I have a strong feeling that your computer has virus/malware - the usual reason why your computer speed is slower than usual. Try installing reputable free antivirus program to get rid of viruses out from your computer system such as AVG and AVAST.A free antivirus program is great, who does not want free right? However, they do not do a complete job. In case you need support optimizing your slow computer and/or getting your computer to be completely clean from harmful viruses, feel free to contact https://www.techienow.com/ -call 8889683244 :)

I am facing slow refresh in desktop


Hi md, it appears that you may have standard VGA graphics driver installed which would cause the slow refresh rate and since you know which model you have try going to Sony website and dowload/install the correct graphics driver for your unit.

My dell is runing slow


Hi,
The most common causes of a slow PC is:
a)It has been infected with viruses and/or spyware
b)You have too many programs or apps installed on your PC which are running in the background and slowing the tasks you are busy with.

Install a good anti-virus program such as AVG free edition. You can download it for free from www.avg.com
Once downloaded run a full scan to detect viruses and spyware which may be slowing your PC down.
Also uninstall any programs which you are not using.

Best wishes,
Graemevm

HI,
Go into safemode again and download this link just click on download now to get the latest malwarebytes and run it on your computer then after delete the quarantined files and restart your computer this should make it faster again if tstill the issue is slow then you may have to re-format you windows just to make sure everything runs fine again removing a virus is not that easy depends if it detects the virus, malware or spyware that is slowing your system down.

try Malwarebytes it worked for me an many as I know if it does uninstall it and format everything.

I hope this helps.

Might want to check the ram. That will always make a PC run slow, but if you have a sufficient amount of ram I would say a gig for running xp. Then re-formatting and re-installing the OS will make the computer faster. Also some PC have a built in recovery partition.

Keyboard is reacting slow


Hi

I think you have a sticky key problem. Go to control panel/ accessibilty options/accessibility options and then confirm all the settings with some friend. Fix your settings in the control panel. Especially all the keys like sticky key, togglekey and filter key. Try them out.
