Hello, do you know the specs of your machine?

Machines can slow down due to a number of reasons such as old hardware trying to support new software.

System start up crammed full of programs which slows down the start up.

Drivers out of date etc,

3 basic things to start off trying are as follows;

1) Disk cleanup, go to start/programs/accessories/system tools/disk clean up.

Complete the process.

2) Defragment the system, also found in the system tools folder.

3) Shutdown some start up programs,

Click start, then run and type msconfig and press enter. Now click on the start up tab on the window that appears.

Here is a list of programs that are set to load up at the start up. Disable any you don't need to load up.


There just basic things, I can help you more when I know a bit more about your system.

No, Microsoft is the manufacturer of your Operating System. For specs on your computer, run Everest and report back with specs that jimmyavr requested. The link that Basementgeek suggested is a great article on things you can do to speed up your computer

Hey there,
Give this a go: Get yourself a can of compressed air and Clean your pc of all dust, especially the cooling fans. Then delete as much junk as possible ie, old programs, files etc...Then run a good system defrag, although the in-built defragger is a bit slow. Diskeeper do a good defragger and i think they do a free trial at their website. oh yeah and do a good virus/ malware scan before you defrag.
