why is my computer soooooooooooooooo slow?

Post by flashthedeveloper on 8th November 2012, 6:48 pm

I have an HP Pavilion dv6000 (ok so it's about 3 years old now) in front of me and it's hardly ever been used. Seriously, it's only been used for surfing the net on the odd occasion and has about 4 family pictures on it.

The o/s is Windows Vista Home Premium (I know I know!) SP2 and the av sw is McAfee.

When I say it's slow, I mean slooooooooooooooooowwwww especially when surfing. Even when using the control panel it seems to take an age to load.

I just uninstalled Firefox and and installed Chrome. It seems to be a little bit faster but not much.

Any ideas guys?

If you're connecting via a wireless connection, maybe the wireless connection is poor. How's the signal strength?

It could be reason Not sufficient hard drive space,Left over programs and awful files,Data Corruption,Missing Windows updates or outdated drivers.Make certain your computer and processor is not overheating. unwarranted heat can origin a important decline in computer presentation .
