My Gateway laptop model ML6720 has become painfully slow. I took it to the garage and spent alot of money to have it cleaned up but did not see a marked improvement. I am willing to pay for a good program that will return my computer to the speed of its glory days, but don't want to waste any more money on something that only makes minimal improvement. Any suggestions? I read in this forum to try RegCurePro. I ran it and it shows many problems that it can fix. Should I go ahead and purchase or is there something better for the money-maybe even free!

I would bet my money on just reinstalling the OS rather than purchasing a registry cleaner. :lol: What particular part is slow? Internet? Opening Programs, booting? Any particular issue leading to the problem?

Try downloading Speccy and then install the program. To post and publish a snapshot of your PC.
. In the Menu bar, click File -> Publish Snapshot
. Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard
. On your next reply, right-click on a empty space and click Paste on reply box then click Post.

Download MiniToolBox and select
List Last 10 Event Viewers, List Installed Programs and List Users, Partitions and Memory Size.
A notepad will open then copy-paste the report on your next reply.
