I have an old laptop (Dell Inspiron I6400 - Vista Business - 2.00 GB of RAM - 32-bit operating system) that I am using for a business computer.  I am running QuickBooks through a remote server.  Lately, the speed when working through the server and also when searching the internet has become ridiculously slow.  I contacted AT&T thinking our DSL might be the problem, but they had me run speedtest and determined the speed was fine.  Any help would be greatly appreciated as this is affecting my productivity.  Thanks!

Hi PmSmith,

 

I doubt if AT&T is the problem. It sounds like your server (business computer) may be the problem. Try running a registry cleaner on it and see how that does. I've been using RegDefense at work for the past 2 years and it works for me. I wrote a review for it here: www.speedypcgeek.com

Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons.

Why you should not use Registry Cleaners and Optimization Tools


Be sure to read Microsoft's support policy for the use of registry cleaning utilities in that topic...Microsoft does not support the use of registry cleaners.

There are numerous programs which purport to improve system performance, make repairs and tune up a computer. Many of them include such features as a registry cleaner, registry optimizer, disk optimizer, etc. These registry cleaners and optimizers claim to speed up your computer by finding and removing orphaned and corrupt registry entries that are responsible for slowing down system performance. There is no statistical evidence to back such claims. Advertisements to do so are a marketing ploy intended to goad users into using an unnecessary and potential dangerous product. I would not trust any results such programs detect as problematic or needing repair nor recommend using the options to fix them.

Further, these types of junk optimization programs are often bundled with other software you download and most are considered Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) so they may be detected or even removed by some security scanners which specifically look for PUPs and adware.

If you have downloaded and scanned with a registry cleaner, any detection results should be viewed with suspicion.

If you have been using such a program routinely...there is no telling what damage it has already done to your registry and other areas it purports to clean.

If you want to improve computer performance, please read: Slow Computer/Browser? Check here first; it may not be malware

Thanks!  How do I know what programs I need and which one's can be deleted?  For example, I have an "Adobe Flash Player 10 Plugin", an "Adobe Flash Player 16 ActiveX" and an "Adobe Reader 9.1".

How to detect vulnerable and out-dated programs using Secunia Personal Software Inspector. This is a FREE security tool designed to detect vulnerable and out-dated programs/plug-ins which expose your computer to malware infection.

Calendar Of Updates is an excellent resource to check on a daily basis for updates to popular programs.

It is not the amount of software installed that affects your performance...unless disk space is an issue.

It is the number of programs installed which add start-up entries which load when Windows boots. Almost all applications you install want to add a command to startup when Windows loads. If you allow them all to do this, the result will impact system performance. The reason for this is that all of these programs use a portion of the system memory and resources which leaves a smaller percentage for other programs once they are opened. These programs then compete for and use available system resources resulting in poor performance and a slow system. Many of these programs are not needed and disabling them can save resources and improve overall performance. When needed, they can be accessed via Start > Programs or an icon on the desktop.

Windows System Configuration Utility is one way to check a computer's list of startups but it was not intended to manage the programs that run when Windows starts.

Please refer to Slow Computer/Browser? Check here first; it may not be malware. Scroll down to the section titled " Check for any unnecessary applications loading when Windows Boots" and use a Startup Manager. If I tell you specific programs to remove, you will not learn anything.

Can I delete any of these?


Personally, I would get rid of:
  • Adobe Reader 9.1 - Outdated, you need to update it anyway;
  • Google Toolbar for Internet Explorer - You can use Google as your default Search Engine in Internet Explorer, no need for the toolbar;
  • Java 7 Update 76 - Outdated, you'll need to download the latest version from Java.com if you want to keep on using Java;
Since you're using Google Chrome, I would also get rid of Adobe Flash Player 17 ActiveX and Adobe Flash Player 17 NPAPI. As for Java like I said, I wouldn't reinstall it if you don't need it, since having Java installed is one big security hole in a system.

Just from experience having been on VISTA for about 6 years the Vista Operating System is naturally slow to begin with and also the more you have on the computer expecilly with a small HD can effect speed as well.
