Answers :

The most common reason for slow processing speed is insufficient RAM memory.

Increase the RAM, if RAM available is no more than 512MB, then it must be upgraded.
\015\012
\015\012Check also your hard drive state. If you have less than 1GB free, that\015\012will slow down the system. Go to\015\012Start>>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk\015\012Defregmenter and do a Defrag of the hard disk.
\015\012
\015\012If you have at least 1 GB RAM, and you took care of the hard drive,\015\012then you can check the process starting up on their own and remove the\015\012useless one, or spot mala-ware that can affect speed. You can use a\015\012software like Hijack This, and search on google te function of each\015\012process started on the list reported by the software.
\015\012
\015\012You can download Hijack this here MajorGeeks | If download does not start, then click at the top of the page, where it says Click Here If It Does Not.
\015\012Be careful if you delete the wrong files using this software you can harm the system, and Windows may not work properly.
\015\012
\015\012If you think you have malaware you can also install Spy Bot, and do a system scan. Download Spybot from The home of Spybot.
\015\012
\015\012If all the above does not work, and there is no malaware, then you usually reinstall the system.
\015\012
\015\012Check also the bios settings, BIOS can downgrade the CPU speed on default , even if this is uncommon on recent BIOS.
\015\012
\015\012If a computer is still slow with a fresh system and enough resources\015\012then it is one of those rare occasions when you have an hardware fault.
\015\012Hardware that can cause slow down is: RAM CPU Motherboard HD Video card.

Some tips on procedure can damage your windows installation. Do not\015\012download Hijackthis software and do not change BIOS settings and do not\015\012touch hardware unless you are sure of what you are doing.

Too slow We bought our computar about 2 years ago and it is really slow. There seems to be plenty of space left on the C-drive but the D-drive is almost full. There are also a lot of program always running when I check the task manager but I don't know how to stop them or what I need and don't need. Should I get more memory? Or try to delete things? I don't want to get a new computar because the one we have isn't that old and it works fine otherwise.
