Hi all. I'm Diana...from Chicago area....not sure what else to say.
I just bought a Dell Inspiron 15R and I am trying to figure out why my laptop seems soooo slow even though I have a better system than before. I am in the process of figuring out which programs to keep and which to remove (because Dell seems to install a lot of junk on their computers), figure out which startup programs I am running and what I can delete, and keeping on top of the processes that always seems to be running on my Task Manager.

Info on my computer can be found below. Any help would be appreciated!

Inspiron 15R with Windows 7
Intel®Core™ i3-350M 2.26Ghz / 3M
4GB Shared Dual Channel DDR3
500GB 5400rpm

I turned off all Windows/McAfee security features and am now just running AVG Internet Security 2011 (full program, not trial).

Hello and :thumbsup: to Bleeping Computer.

Be sure to check out the New User Orientation and the excellent Tutorials.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
