My computer is so slow, I can barely stand to work on it.  It runs fine in safe mode, which is what I'm using to access this forum.  I'm running Windows 7, Home, Service pack 1.  I have Avast anti-virus which doesn't detect any problems, and I've run Malware bytes which also doesn't detect any problems.  I run defrag about once ever 6 months, but I don't install or uninstall a lot of programs, so it only every shows about 6 - 8% fragmented.  I have gone through my uninstall list and have eliminated anything that doesn't look usefull or installed on the system.  The only question I have on these are some E-machine programs that look like I don't need them, but they were there when I first got my computer and it ran fine then.  Can anyone help me?

Welcome to BC !

 

Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the

Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.

After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.

CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download

 

 

After running CCleaner...post the three lists mentioned below using CCleaner:

 

Open CCleaner and click on Tools. Choose Startups. On that page you will see a list of Windows Startups and at the top tabs for each browser and Scheduled Tasks.

At the bottom right of that page you will see a button when clicked will allow you to Copy and Paste the list of Windows Startups and Scheduled Tasks into your next

post. Please do that.

 

Open CCleaner and click on Tools. Choose Uninstall. On that page you will see a list of programs installed on your computer and at the bottom right of that page you

will see a button when clicked will allow you to Copy and Paste that list in your next post. Please do that.

 

Download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.

  • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
  • Double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Click on Scan button.
  • When the scan has finished click on Clean button.
  • Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
  • Please post the contents of that logfile with your next reply.
  • You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.
