Default SLOOW computer

Howzit going,

What if you do all kinds of regular computer maintenance : spyware, scandisk, defrag, temp files and cookies and antivirus, but then one day, your computer without any reason began to load windows so slow, between the startup page until the desktop is 'totally loaded'; as in the computer is no longer loading any services or programs?

What could be a cause for this?

Thank you

Do you have a registry cleaner? A registry cleaner may help AND if you messed around with any registry settings it may make your computer slower.

Default Re: SLOOW computer

some of windows startup files may be damedged. try putting the windows disk in and repair the startup files. this won't reformat you HDD so don't worry.
