This is for a friend, she is thinking to install windows 7 on her laptop but it is already running quite slow. Would windows 7 run better, worse or just the same? She mostly just uses it for surfing the internet.

 

She has an eMachine E525 (http://www.cnet.com/products/emachines-e525-2491-15-6-celeron-900-linux-linpus-2-gb-ram-160-gb-hdd-spanish/specs)

 
CPU: Intel Celeron 900 / 2.2 GHz
RAM: 3gb ddr2 533 MHz

IMO...the intelligent thing to do...would be to try to determine why a system with 3GB RAM...is running slowly, rather than hoping that a change of operating system will address or cure whatever is wrong.

Well it lags because the CPU is full, don't know if its just to slow of a CPU or something is on the computer taking up CPU.

Do you think this machine would run better on a windows 7 or better to stick with vista? Also if there are any easy to do speedups please feel free to suggest, although I'm quite a newbie in this stuff.

nox03,

 

I will let Hamluis diagnose the contents of your MiniToolBox report (he's much better at that than me), but I thought it worth alerting you in the meantime that your Speccy report appears to be showing that you currently have two different Antivirus programs active, both AVG Antivirus and Microsoft Security Essentials.

 

Having more than one antivirus program installed/active at the same time can cause many problems, to include both a degraded ability to screen for viruses (the two AV programs are busy fighting each other rather than looking for viruses) as well as often causing your computer to run more slowly than normal.

 

Recommend you keep whichever antivirus program you prefer (either AVG or MSE), and then uninstall the other.

 

Best wishes.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Using more than one anti-virus program is not advisable. Why? The primary concern with doing so is due to Windows resource management and significant conflicts that can arise especially when they are running in real-time protection mode simultaneously. Even if one of them is disabled for use as a stand-alone on demand scanner, it can affect the other and cause conflicts. Anti-virus software components insert themselves deep into the operating systems core where they install kernel mode drivers that load at boot-up regardless of whether real-time protection is enabled or not. Thus, using multiple anti-virus solutions can result in kernel mode conflicts causing system instability, catastrophic crashes, slow performance and waste vital system resources. When actively running in the background while connected to the Internet, each anti-virus may try to update their definition databases at the same time. As the programs compete for resources required to download the necessary files this often can result in sluggish system performance or unresponsive behavior.
