This is Viral. I am using an Acer laptop model ASPIRE 4736 since the last seven years. There haven't been much issues with it. except for the battery and that's it. But recently, when I was learn R programming, I ran a script accidentally( Copy Paste) which was meant for a octacore processor on a Core 2 Duo processor(2.2 Ghz, 800 MHz FSB). The function was basically stop all the computing functions of the machine and give the script the whole processor to run to analyse the data. I had to make some changes in the code to fit my Core 2 Duo processor but I just Copy Pasted the code and it ran successfully. But, after that, my machine takes a lot of time to start and has become really slow. I have already stopped that code and ran Glary Utilities as well as cleared the registry using CC cleaner but none of them helps. My Chrome browser is also not working properly and also Google has stopped giving out updates for Chrome browser. Everything takes a lot of time to start considering the machine as well. It takes almost 7-10 mins for the machine to start and then 2-3 mins for the browser to open and this is creating a lot of problems. I don't know what to do in this case or is my machine permanently screwed. There's already a heating issue which I solved by buying a coolpad but now this new issue. I don't want to upgrade to a new laptop as I already have a office laptop which is really fast. I tried disabling some processes which weren't required during start process but that dint help as well. Please help me out with this issue as I really can't working on such a slow machine with the browser also causing a lot of problems. Whatever details that you require, just let me know and I would help you out with it. Please help.
