Laptop is running slow - PC Desktops

Answers :

Hello khrisvalerio,

There are many reasons why a laptop could be\015\012running slow, usually its a lot of junk that has accumulated over time,\015\012fragmented HD, HD errors, viruses, etc.

The first thing to do is to empty\015\012all the contents of the TEMP folder. One way to do this is to open\015\012Internet Explorer, Click on Tools > Internet Options > General\015\012Tab > Under Browsing History, click the delete button.

Next,\015\012you can click on My Computer icon in desktop, right click over C: drive\015\012and in the General tab, click on the Disk Cleanup button. After this,\015\012go to the Tools tab and under Error Checking, click the Check Now\015\012button. Once that is done, go to the section below, which is\015\012Defragmentation and click that button. This may take a while, depending\015\012upon the size of your hard disk.

I would also recommend you do a\015\012full virus scan with your AntiVirus software with the latest updates.\015\012All this should help you get the PC going faster.

There are two tools available on the net, which I would really recommend:
\015\0121. RegistryBooster 2
\015\0122. SpeedUpMyPC 3
Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post\015\012them here. Please do not assign a rating until you feel your problem is\015\012resolved. I will try my best to help you further if need be.

If\015\012you are satisfied with my solution or have no other questions, please\015\012close the problem by assigning a FIXYA rating for my solution. I would\015\012be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!
