Hi, How much ram do you have? That's the first culprit. Press ctrl+alt+del and open task manager and check your performance tab to see how much of your computers resources are being used. You will also see what is running and how much ram they are using. You can r-click any of these and stop them from running, but, unless you know what exactly they are, you could freeze your computer. You should be able to recognize things like winzip, and crap like that that you don't need pre-loaded into memory.
If your cpu and ram usage looks high, you probably need to do an in-depth system cleaning...
Check your page file (virtual memory) settings, and google any of these things I'm talking about if you are unsure. Don't do anything without researching and knowing what you are doing, and more importantly, how to get yourself out of a jam if you get into one.
Startup programs, services you may not need loaded. I'd do a disk cleanup, scandisk, then defrag., uncheck programs not needed in msconfig., also check in msconfig., services running after you check box the "Hide microsoft services".
Manually clean your internet explorer cache and temp files along with all your windows temp files. I'd clean my prefetch folder and keep the last three days of files.
There is so-o much more you could do, just remember to do a backup, make a restore point before tweaking anything, and save a registry backup.
Good luck and keep us informed!
Can any of you members think of something right off that I've overlooked?
Thanks in advance you all!
