Sounds like you're a packrat
and I suspect you already knew this could cause computer slow down, since you stated, "deleted all movies/programs I dont need".
Go to My Computer.
Right click on C drive.
You will see a pie chart showing how much of your hard drive is used, and how much is available, as well as the total capacity of your hard drive.
Is your hard drive more than half full (used) ? Please reply back on this
Just curious, did you "uninstall" programs using Control Panel, Add/Remove or did you actually "delete" programs?
For future reference, there is a free program called Revo Uninstaller that not only uninstalls programs, but will search and find leftover files and registry entries left behind.
You can get the free version of Revo Uninstaller here:http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninst...e_download.html
Another way to clear some space on your hard drive is to turn off System Restore, and check your settings on how much space (percentage of your hard drive) you allow System Restore to use. When you turn off System Restore, it deletes all restore points. If yours is set on "max", you could reduce it to a lower percentage. That will limit the number of restore points available. After you turn off System Restore, go to to My Computer, Right click on C drive, hit Properties. See how much more space is "available" on your hard drive. If you want to turn System Restore back on, go to Control Panel, System, System Restore tab, click to take the checkmark out of "Turn Off System Restore" and hit Apply. Then hit OK to close.
Use CCleaner regularly, and you will see that each day, the free version of AVG collects approx 50mb that can be deleted.
Other factors in your computer running slow are unnecessary processes running, using up system resources.
I notice in your screen capture it shows "wkufind.exe" running in Task Mngr.
This file is not necessary and can be turned off. (It goes to Microsoft Picture It.)
Click Start, Run, type in msconfig and hit Enter.
Click the Startup tab, and check to see what items have a checkmark next to them.
A checkmark means that item will run on boot.
The more stuff you have running, the slower you will go.
You can remove checkmarks from Startup items, then hit Apply.
You will get a message that changes will take effect after next restart, and it will give you the option to restart the computer right then, or at a later time.
Upon the next restart, you will get a message that you have used System Configuration Utility......you can close it (ignore it).
Removing any unnecessary items from Startup should help somewhat with the problem of your computer running slow.
I also notice that you have a "rundll32.exe" running in Task Mngr.
It's worth looking into further because while Task Mngr shows the "processes" that are running, it does NOT show the command lines.
Process Explorer is a free program that WILL show the command lines.
You can download Process Explorer from: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb896653.aspx
When you run Process Explorer, click View, Select Columns, and put a checkmark next to "Command Line".
Then you will be able to see the command line for rundll32.exe.Please reply back with the command line for the rundll32.exe.
I also see Apple Mobile Device running in Task Mngr.
Do you have an IPod/iTunes ? My son does, and I am very particular about extra/unnecessary things running on my computer. I explained to my son that when he needed to use it, he could run it, but I wasn't going to have it running on boot, slowing my computer down.
Another thing that could be using up alot of space on your hard drive is old Windows Update files.
Go to your Windows Explorer.
Go to Tools, Folder Options, View tab. Make sure yours is set to "show hidden files and folders".
Then open your C:\Windows folder.
You will probably be surprised at how many folders there are, named
$NtUninstallKBxxxxxx$ (x's are numbers) and how much space they take up on your hard drive.
(You can Right click any folder, hit Properties, and it will show you the size of that folder.)
If your Windows Explorer does not show a column heading called Date Created, you can Right click on a category title (like Date Modified), which yields a pop up menu, where you can click to add a check mark next to Date Created, so you will know what date each folder was created.
If you delete any of the folders named $NtUninstallKBxxxxxx$, you will not be able to uninstall those particular Windows Updates. If you are certain that you will not want to uninstall those Windows Updates, you can choose to delete the $NtUninstallKBxxxxxx$ folders that are several years old. You can choose to keep only the last six months of them, or the last year of them.
Please note, this only applies to folders named $NtUninstallKBxxxxxx$.
After you turn off System Restore, run CCleaner, and get back some space on your hard drive, run a defrag.
Do you also tend to download alot of music and store it on your hard drive? You may want to check the folder size of any Apple folders, iTunes folders, etc. My son had several gigs on my computer of all his stuff.....music, apps, etc.
Anything that you want to keep can be burned to a cd. I would say (personal observation) that if your computer has slowed down to the point that it is an issue with you, to get it back to running as fast as you want it to run, you will need to be very strict with yourself (or any others who use your computer) about what gets downloaded/installed/saved on your computer, as well as very strict with only what is absolutely necessary is set to run on boot.
Please report back with whether your computer is running faster after removing items from Startup and turning off System Restore.
Hope this helps
