Having problems with your Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop ?

My computer is horrible it is so slow even while typing in a website to go to it acts like it can't keep up and i type slowwwww

Answers :

Possible reasons are :
Case 1:
You have just less memory RAM(ex:256 Mb ram) and u have many applications opened during startup and many services than the threshold.
Use msconfig(XP) or Gpedit.msc(Win Vista or 7) and remove unwanted services and startups.

Case 2: You would have recently visited any wares sites or any misleading sited which would have uploaded a spy virus.

Case 3: Trojan and worm32 presence in your system.

Case 4: Missing system files too.


Either try to increase RAM size in a situation like "case 1".

Or do a clean check of your system for virus using antivirus AND a ant - spyware virus.(Note antivirus and Anti spywares are different. So use both).

Or re-install the windows.(I recommend this).

If any problem after this , let me know.
Ok, download this programs if you can, ccleaner, spyboot search and destroy, atf cleaner..
put you computer in safe mod ( when booting hit f8, or f2, --it is based on you bios in most cases it is f8) you will come to list view of how to start your pc chooes safe mod on the top..
coputer in this mode should run faster.. check the speed, run ccleaner, spyboots annd atf cleaner.. after that run defragment tools, also check you computer for viruses...
restart computer and it will start normly .. see if there are chenges in speed...post me back after that ..
