Hello user898, can you please follow my directions below so we can gather some much needed information about your computer system, which will make it easier for us to help you?
  • Go to Piriform's website, and click the big download.png button.
  • Next, click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version.
  • You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.
  • After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
  • Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):

  • Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot
  • You will see the following prompt:
    p22004371.gif
  • Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard
    p22004372.gif
  • Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the p22004370.gif button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.
  • Congrats! You have just posted your specs!
Once you have posted your Speccy snapshot, it will be reviewed and a reply will be offered to you as soon as time permits.

Your Speccy reports that your hard drive's transfer speed is 3.0Gb/s so that's not bad.

 

By the way, just be careful with using any registry optimizers or cleaners and be careful with what you do with CCleaner, I advise against any modifications using either program to your windows registry. Deleting the wrong keys can render your operating system non-bootable and none recoverable.

so 50-30 mb/s transfer speed is normal on what you said 3.0gb/s? and if the operating systems messed up like and what you said, reinstall will fix os?

Reinstall is a last resort! If you look through that report you posted with the link above, scroll down until you see STORAGE. That is your hard drive, read the results listed below where it says hard drive, to make it easier for you, I'll post it here below, this is what it says about your hard drive.
