I'd like to see if my computer boot process could be improved. It is slow. I was wondering if I have bad files from browsing the internet. What can I do to remove those files. I have a lap top, Gateway NVG2, that runs Window Vista. I was wondering too if I restore my computer from a previous date if that would help remove the unwanted files. I didn't know how much work that would be or if there is any easier process that would result in increased performance on my computer. Also, how much work is rebooting from a pervious date? How many pieces of software will fail? Will my computer not work if I restore from a pervious point?
Also my fan runs a lot.
My CD drive doesn't work. I think that is a spearate problem. I think it may need to be reconnected inside the machine. Could that be causing the computer to search for that drive and if it doesn't find it right away or at all the boot takes extra long? Can I disable that drive?
I do have a free statistics program, R, on my machine. Do I need to remove that program before I can get help on this website?
