My computer run slow - Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook


Answers :

I would install Microsoft Security Essentials and run a scan after downloading all the updates. If you are running Windows XP, you can also run Combofix before installing Microsoft Security Essentials.

\015\012If you have Norton, Mcafee, or any other antivirus software, ad scanners, etc., it would be a good idea to uninstall them before installing Microsoft Security Essentials.

\015\012If you don't use System Restore,\015\012it is a good idea to disable it by right clicking My Computer, click\015\012properties. On the System Restore tab, check the Turn off system\015\012restore option, and click Ok.

\015\012If this doesn't speed things up tremendously, try installing more RAM, or replacing your RAM with larger sized sticks.

\015\012Combofix and Microsoft Security Essentials can be found using Google.

There are many reasons can cause computer running slow, like out-dated hardware, spyware or virus issue, or software problem. For different causes, you need to perform different operation.
Follow the four steps and have a try:
1. Check the RAM. Adding memory is always the most effective method to get faster speed. But if the memory is already at the maximum that the mother board can support, you need to do other job.
2. Scan for spyware or virus. Get an anti-spyware program and check virus or spyware. They may eat up a lot of system resources.
3. Software. Get a professional registry optimizer to scan and fix registry errors. With time, all registry can be full of errors that will cause system crash, freeze or slow performance.
4. Defrag hard disk using the built-in system tool. Click Start>Accessaries>System Tools>Disk Defrag. This can speed up opening files.
