www.filehippo.com
Get CCleaner otherwise known as crap cleaner.
www.majorgeeks.com
Get findjunkfiles.

You probabley have a lot of useless files on your system that has been accumilating over time. Also check the msconfig for what all starts up when you power up.

What do you mean, when you "reset" your computer? Do ya mean a clean install of the Operating system, or ya have turned it off/on?

You reinstall the entire operating system? as in windows XP?


well after you do that how many programs are you installing on it.

what types of programs.

you should stop them from running at startup via msconfig (start/run/msconfig)

tab over to services and edit the services that are unneeded IE. Adobe speed launch, ect...

required services would be antivirus and firewall services.
