i have a computer for a business. its has two user names one for the company and one for leisure. the company has over 400 lotus wordpro documents and the leisure one has mozilla firefox installed on it and a couple of ram optimizers but for some reason it has gotten really really slow nothing i do will quicken it up. its really frustrating can any1 help me plz before i take it into a repair shop.
I recently downloaded a ram freeing software (MaxMem by AnalogX) and, whilst it did it's job OK, it also stopped the computer from closing down and switching off properly. I also got the feeling that as it was always running in the back ground it must be using some Ram and CPU itself thus helping to slow the computer down slightly. It is now relegated to an icon on the desk top ready for use only when needed. Crag2k5, have you checked in Msconfig lately to see what programs you have running all the time?? Some programs may be running un-necessarily and causing it to slow down.
Go to Start\Run and type MSCONFIG press enter go to startup tab top right check box's to see what programs that do not need to start at boot. If you remove the tick it stops it starting at boot. You can restore the above after if you find you need it. DO NOT REMOVE AV or FIREWALL
