Default Re: my computer is really slow how can i make it run better

like i said above yu probably have virus or spyware so best bet reformat and (easy with restore disks ) and then install anti virus and firewall

plus that commp is fine for email internet and word processing , not too good for gaming but yeah the specs look fine for the above just reformat

Lol, you ask what you can do to make it better. THey say reinstall windows. You reply, i don't think i want to do that. Great.

Go upgrade to 1 gb of RAM, and get a new CPU. If i remember correctly, i think that the amd64's fit into the same socket as a sempron. You'll see a spike in performance.

Do this (and if you can upgrade to 1GB of memory)

Routine System Optimization (by LambofGod)

1. All Driver updates (examples www.ati.com , www.asus.com )

2. Windows Updates ( www.windowsupdate.com )

3. Full anitvirus scans with a program such as

AVG antivirus
http://www.download.com/AVG-Anti-Vir...g=pop.software

4. Full spyware scans w/ 2 diff spyware programs such as

Ad-aware
http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-SE-...g=pop.software

Spybot
http://www.download.com/Spybot-Searc....html?tag=list

Windows Defender
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...PdOIPuUQ%3d%3d

5. Msconfig the startup (go to start, type *msconfig* go to the startup tab)

Now disable all the services that you do not NEED to have running. For example Adobe speed launch ect…..

You can also go to the tab services, then check the box *hide all Microsoft services*
And disable service there that you do not need

(this will not get rid of the programs, just stop them from starting up)

6. Disk cleanup

Go to Start, programs, accessories, system tools, disk cleanup.

Select the drive you want to clean.

After it scans the drive select all the boxes you want to clean files out of.

(usually all of them)

Click ok.

7. Check disk

Go to start, run, type “cmd”, make sure you are on your root drive (usually C:\), type “chkdsk /f”, type “Y” .

Then restart your system

*if you are not on your root drive type “cd C:\ “ assuming C:\ = your root drive*

8. disk defragmenter

Go to start, programs, accessories, system tools, disk defragmentor.

Select the drive you want to defrag and press “defrag”

(this may take a while)
