Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
Why my system become slow in booting and reading startup programs, it has no virus when I scanned it. I was confused...... , will you please teach me how to improve my system to read fast! especially on booting. Thanks for your response. ([email protected])
Hi, This is Ravi Verma. I shall like to tell that the system goes slow down because of many reasons. Some of them are:
1). Registry is overloaded by waste entries.
2). Windows/prefetch file is overloaded by waste data files.
3). So many tasks are running.
4). Computer Configuration is low as compare to the Softwares installed in it.
5). Virus Problem.
6). Spyware in Registry.
So, for the Solution of above problems one by one please read the Following Text...
1). Use an appropriate Registry Editor like uniblueregistrybooster or tuneup etc.
2). Empty the Prefetch folder of Windows directory. Windows/prefetch.
3). Goto start->run-> and write msconfig and press enter. In the opened dialog box goto startup tag & declick all those tasks which are not needed to you. Because these tasks run with startup and use your processor.
4). Upgrade your Computer.
5). You a good Anti-Virus. To recognize that virus is in your computer the best way is goto Mycomputer->menubar->tools->folderoptions. if Folderoptions is not showing in your tools menu bar it means that your computer is infected by a malicious virus.
6). use better spyware remover like unibluespywareremover.

Here's a few tips you can try to fix your slow startup problem. First of all you want to disable any programs that are in the startup menu that you do not absolutely need. There is no sense in waiting for programs to load that you don't use on a regular basis. Or if you are not sure which one is slowing your startup. You can disable them one at a time.
If that did not help, you can disable your Windows sidebar. You'll also want to remove any icons from your desktop that you do not absolutely need. The same goes for your task bar and quick start menu. All of these will slow down your boot time.
Check to make sure your anti virus program is not scanning at startup. Some programs are set to scan. When windows boots, by default. You will also want to do a full anti virus scan to make sure you don't have a worm or any other type of virus that is working in the background slowing your operations down.
The biggest reason for a slow boot time is a corrupt or damaged Registry. The registry will become corrupted from installing and uninstalling programs. Perhaps you have loaded programs onto your new Vista computer and were not compatible and then uninstall them. They leave behind files, which Windows tries to reference on startup. Since they are no longer on your computer. Your system goes through a long search trying to find them. You need to clean and optimize your Windows registry to eliminate any bad or orphaned files.
You can do this manually if you are an experienced computer technician. It is not recommended for most users. Windows does not have a built-in tool for repairing, cleaning, or optimizing your registry. You will need to download and run a third-party registry repair program to do this.
A good piece of software that will do this for you with a click of the mouse is a wise investment for any computer. You will have it for years to come, and can schedule it to do weekly maintenance. This will keep your PC fully optimize and running fast. It's like giving your computer a tuneup.
