Hey Everyone,

Just trying to find some answers and get my computer running at the best performance it can until I can afford to upgrade it or just completely replace it. My computer is old, but I'm not in a position financially to just go out and get a new one. This is all I have, and I know I can get jobs and generate income using it, so I'm spending my time fixing it up and trying to get rid of whatever's slowing it down. If I had the money, I would probably purchase some quick-fix software online, but I don't. So I'm FORCED to do this all on my own. We'll see how it goes. Hopefully I do enough research before I just start trying to fix it with this download and that download. I wish I could just type out exactly what kind of computer I have, what programs I have on it, and then poof, a step by step instruction manual gets generated and mailed to me. That would be cool. But then I'd have to wait for it to arrive in the mail...and someone would be out there having to print it and mail it to me, and who knows what would happen in between the time they mailed it to me and me actually receiving it. So here I go. Good luck to everyone out there. Hope everyone's enjoying their life, and that at the end of all this, I'll be able to write about my experience and help other people with the same problems as me.

Welcome to BC!
I would avoid any kind of "quick fix" software; using such can sometimes do far more harm than good.Above all, stay away from any registry changes---muck about there can really ruin your operating system.
