Having problems with your Computer Utilities & Maintenance ?

Every time i turn on my computer will take longer start up,,,,


Answers :

Hello there and welcome here

You need to do following steps :

1.Uninstall programs you do not need anymore :
remove the software in Add and Remove programs in Control Panel, reboot the computer

2.Use Ccleaner

Please see my article here on how do you use Ccleaner :

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3581476-how_to_use_ccleaner_to_keep_your_compute



3. Install Updates:
you find the updates in Internet explorer under the feature Tools (Windows Update), select it and follow the instructions on the screen, then choose quick search here and install the updates it find. You need to run it until Windows Update write "there is no more updates/ 0 updates".

4.Then you can try to disable programs that start with windows, use this tool for doing that (Autoruns):
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx
ONLY DISABLE THE PROGRAMS YOU ARE SURE ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE OTHERWISE WINDOWS WILL NOT LOG ON.
In the program there is a tab called "logon", press on that; these are all the programs that start together with windows. the programs normally make a icon next to the clock but that means that they use many of your computer resources without the need for that, many of these programs you can simply start on the programs folder in the "Start" menu, they are not needed to be run every-time you log unless you know need them all the time.
Simply disable those those programs you ARE SURE THAT YOU DO NOT NEED. Example on programs that not need to be run is : itunes, Quick time player and others.
When you have done all that you simply restart the computer, you should already see the notice of the speed difference now!!!.

5.For cleaning of the registry, please see this article. Note the programs are all free and safe:

http://dottech.org/tipsntricks/10887

6.Check your drive/s for errors. Highlight your hard drive (normally it is C:), you find it in My Computer, right click on it and choose properties, select the second tab and choose "check this drive for errors", apply all the possibilities and press ok and restart the computer. Let the program run

If the computer does not run faster now !, then maybe you have virus/ spyware on and need to be cleaned with all the possibilities you have to find antivirus and antispyware programs, Note there are a lot of free programs doing that ex : AVG FREE, superantispyware, ad aware free, Comodo free etc

Hope that helps
IF NOT then try to return here
Have a nice time over there
