I don't know squat about computers. All I really know is that my computer is very slow opening web pages and have done every thing that techs told me to do with no results. I was wondering if I took my pc to pc shop and had it put back to where it was when I bought it back in april would I have the speed i had then?
I don't care about having to reinstall the programs I have on it. I just want the web to load like it did back in april. I have to disks that came with it but am afriad to do it myself in case I screw it up to point I have to have it repaired I use dail up
Thank you for what ever advice you can give me
David

Welcome to BC!
Unless other computer functions, such as opening other applications or files, booting, or shutting down are abnormally slow, then most likely it is not your operating system that is the problem.
My suggestion would be to post about this problem in the Web Browsing Forum; Members would need to know what the techs told you to do so they could eliminate those areas. The problem could be, for example, a hardware issue (modem, connexion wires), caused by malware, or just a poor ISP connexion rate; we would need to rule out any steps you have already taken.
Regards,
John

Thank you for replying to my post.
I scan my hard drive for errors and defrag. weekly and keep all temp folders cleaned out. These were suggestions that other techs gave me to do. I noticed when I turn on my pc I get this error
<windows root>\system32\hal.dill needs to be reinstalled.
How do I go about reinstalling this. Not sure if it will help but am sure it needs to be reinstalled.
thank you
David

Which operating system do you have?

here is the download spot for the dll file. Put it in the system32 folder in windows.
renam the old into hal.old if still present

To register the .dll for the Active Directory Schema, type:

regsvr32 hal.dll

I was unable to do what you suggested. I am very new to computers and really don't understand how to do things. There was another reply to my question which was to use my windows disk to reinstall that dill. I believe this work because I know longer get that error message. Thank you for all your help.
David :thumbsup:
