Windows Vista was not running, but finally is, but is now running incredibly slow

Q: Windows Vista was not running, but finally is, but is now running incredibly slow

Ok, for the past few weeks, I had been getting a message that said a resource was missing, but I stupidly never wrote down what specifically was gone. It said that it could not open the Dell Dock because of it and windows explorer was running slow at times and restarting periodically. It did this for about three weeks, then, two nights ago, the computer froze, so I reset it, and it started on the green bar then black screen loop.

I tried running it in safe mode, no dice, and all other alternate boot options. It would hang up each time. Finally, I was able to get the system restore wizard up, this was earlier today, and reset the system to how it was 4 days ago. It actually opened Vista, but in low res mode and everything is painfully slow, except for the internet, which runs at normalish speeds.

Are there any possible causes or solutions for this?

I have a Dell Inspiron 530, and Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit.

Preferred Solution: Windows Vista was not running, but finally is, but is now running incredibly slow

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello, to whomever is willing to help.
 
I seem to have a major system slowdown, on a normally bulletproof desktop.

hi . i recently reinstalled my vista os. due it being a dog and corrupting all over the place.however when i reinstalled, i was given the option to choose some updates. so what the hell ,i install about 49 updates. most being security fixes. and now my laptop runs extremely slow.
on starcraft battle net, ppl swear at me saying, **** you for the lag.
And its all thanks to microwank. if i could get a refund i would, but sadly that is not the case.thanks ya nazis.

anywho, i went to my updates and uninstalled all the updates . then i click reboot to complete the operation. but funnily enough, the computer crashes and stayes at black screen. and i have tried to uninstall updates multiple times. then when i click the power off button and reboot. im back with all them lovley security updates that i just so need in my life and also to be prepared for a nuclear fallout.No matter how hard i try uninstalling and rebooting, it just wont work.

Also, i have 100 % cpu usage. im wondering if this can be any program that was awakened when the updates infected my comp.on my task manager.it says cpu usage 100% but it dosent list enough apps to cover 100%..
so please if anyone would know how i can make my comp run smoothly and quickly.
pleae would anyone have any advice.thanks for reading

A:[SOLVED] Vista running incredibly slow after update.+cant uninstall updates.

Click start > run > msconfig
click the "startup" tab
uncheck everything except your antivirus
restart your computer.

Right Click "Computer", select your main drive, right click, select properties then tools. Defrag the main drive. Even if it tells you it doesn't need it, defrag it anyways.

Run a Registry cleaner, you can get a good one from here: http://www.ccleaner.com/download

clean the junk files and repair the registry. Restart again and give it another whirl.

Hi, my dell xps laptop has just started running incredibly slow. It takes up to 10mins to boot up and often hangs when opening a program or file until I have to switch it off and start again. Can someone please advise me what I can do? I am running Windows 7. I have 8gb of ram.
I know I only have about 20gb of hd space left, but this has been the case for a while now and it's only in the last week or so it has started running this slow.

Hey Guys,

My computer has all of a sudden started running very slowly, and I'm on a relatively fast system. It has been working fine for a while now, and all of a sudden it's doing everything at 1/50th of the speed it used to. I'm looking at the task manager now and it's saying it's using 15-20% of the CPU and 1.25 of my 4 gigs of ram consistently. This is much higher than normal and I'm not sure what's wrong with it. The programs using the most Ram / CPU at the moment are svchost.exe and internet explorer, both of which are using about 100 megs of ram and almost no cpu. Random items on this list are spiking CPU usage (explorer.exe, audiodg.exe). I'm on Windows 7 Professional and not really sure what to do here. Again everything is working (except for firefox for some reason) it's just going really slowly. Any ideas on what to do immediately? I'm debating reformating because I haven't since Windows 7 came out - but I'd rather find another solution. I'm thinking maybe a memory leak, but not sure how to track one? Any help is appreciated, thanks :)

*Note - ran chkdsk through DOS and am now running it as chkdsk /r/f at a friend's advice

A:Windows Running Incredibly Slow All of a Sudden

Hello and Welcome to TSF!!!

Well, 1,25GB for today's modern operating systems like Vista or Windows 7 is not odd at all I must admit...
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate and it takes up to 1,1GB right now...
Also, since you have 4GB, it cannot be lack of RAM because system has enough on the side...

Tell me do you have Anti-Virus software??? Did you scan your system???
It might be infected...

Since when system started to be slow??? Did you install or perhaps uninstall some software???

Keep us posted...

This may be a bit of a challenge, but I am trying to help my parents fix their computer remotely. All I know is that apparently the computer started running very slow 2 days ago, and they can't do much of anything.
 
I have TeamViewer installed to help them with issues from time to time, and I have spent close to 3 hours on this now. 
 
Computer is a Toshiba laptop with AMD E-300 APU with Radeon™ HD Graphics 1.30GHz, 1024KB Level 2 cache / 2GB RAM (I swear it had 4GB, but is showing only 2GB) and a 300GB HDD. Running Win 8.1 64Bit.
 
In any event, I have run a full virus scan (Viper) and a full scan with Malwarebytes and neither detected anything.
 
However, I can barely get around on the computer. If I open chrome, I get the page crash error, or it just loads ultra slow and I get a "not responding" message.
 
I attempted to get into msconfig.exe which took an enormous amount of time (like 4 minutes) and once I did, I looked at what was starting up at start up. Nothing unusual there.
 
I attempted to do a scan on the hard drive, and it said I didn't need to do one as Windows detected the drive as ok. I ran one anyway, and after 10 minutes or so it told me Windows couldn't determine a problem, and a full scan was needed. I passed on doing that for now as it will want to reboot, and scan before any remote software can load where I will be able to monitor it.

A:Windows 8.1 64bit running incredibly slow and programs stop responding

I do a lot of work remotely be it via RA or TeamViewer for  clients & others.  Sometimes there is a limitation on what can be done remotely.  Anyway, that said...
1. I advise, initially the RAM should be checked, even swapped out w/ new.  It would be silly for a 64-bit machine to have less the 4GB RAM since an x86 can't/doesn't use more than about 3-3.5GB, x64 will.
2. Is the HDD making any unusual noises.
3. How much free space is on the drive.
4. What events  or activity was there 2 days ago?
5. Do a System Restore.
6. If #5 changes nothing, put it back to Factory.
7. If #6 changes nothing then it is, indeed, a hardware issue.
8. How old is the laptop?
Cheers,Drew

So as of today I turned on my computer as normal and everything is running incredibly slowly. Everything takes forever to load and stops responding within a few seconds.

I managed to open the System page and under Processor it says "Not Available" and the same for "Installed Memory (RAM)"

All I have tried is restarting the computer, shutting it down and turning it off for 10 minutes. I have no idea what to do. I also managed to open cmd and try to run sfc /scannow but it said "Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service"

I cant think of anything that changed between last night and today, I havnt downloaded anything... Please give me some advice!

Hi

My partner has an acer one notebook running windows vista. Recently it has started running extremely slowly, it takes ages to do anything. It will not play video at all (youtube etc) and when trying toplay one using crome a message comes up to say that shockwave had crashed. Also when you first boot up the netbook there is a message saying the application failed to initialise, contact customer care. Although it doesn't say which application.

Could these be due to a virus?

I have an HP Pavilion p7-1235 running Windows 7. I’m not a gamer, and my computer is not overloaded with excessive software. I largely use my desktop computer for word processing, banking, and basic Internet searches. My virus programs are System Mechanic Pro and Malwarebyte Pro.  About 8 months ago, I started having issues with my computer running everything incredibly slow, from opening a program to running the Internet or even moving my mouse across the screen. I noticed that it happened after my computer completed some standard updates. I ran several full scans and found a few minor problems, but the computer still ran incredibly slow. Finally, I restored my computer to an earlier restore point, and my computer sped up.  A few months later, the same problem occurred. Again, I found a few issues and removed them, but the computer still ran slowly. I had to restore it again.  A month later, it happened again, and I went through the same process.  Now every 3-4 weeks the computer slows down considerably, and the only way I can fix it (at least for a few weeks) is to do a restore.  Obviously, I’m missing some virus buried deep in my computer, but System Mechanic Pro and Malwarebyte Pro isn’t finding anything major. What other steps can I take to fix this problem once and for all?

This just started a few weeks ago.. I have a Dell inspirion 1720 lappy.. If I go to you tube, try to watch vids, it takes for ever to buffer. Also my photobucket, impossible to upload pics to it, or view a big group of pics at one time.. Ebay, wont even let me upload pics for my auctions.. I thought it might just be my internet connections, but I also notice when I go into my own personal albums on my PC, it takes them time to load on the screen, also with vids that I uploaded onto my PC.. I am running Trend Micro security, the latest version. I thought I might have to do a registry clean on this thing to help out, but after getting it, it seems it doesn't or hasn't helped... i am not a PC genious, lol but fig if I had a virus the security should have picked it up, for the most part kinda have a idea about what is what.. I have done system restores, defrag, even though it is done automaticly...Any ideas?? Thanks much

A:My Laptop is running incredibly slow, what could it be??

I thought I might have to do a registry clean on this thing to help out, but after getting it, it seems it doesn't or hasn't helpedBleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons: Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry. Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another ma... Read more

Hi there folks.

I am posting this on behalf of my dad. His computer running really really slow. I have done a lot of the things in Glaswegians "computer running slow" thread but even that took me ages as going between files and folders was so slow. His hard drive has plenty of room and when I look at his CPU usage by pressing ctrl alt delete it is sitting at roughly 10%

My computer has always had a somewhat long boot time (around 5 minutes), but once it boots it has been lightning fast. I was recently trying to fix the long boot up time issue by messing with MSCONFIG and turning off certain start up programs. Not only did doing this NOT help me, but now my computer is running incredibly sluggish. Programs take much longer to open, physical memory is around 75-80%, I have huge amounts of lag when trying to play world of warcraft (where I've previously had none), and I have a ton of processes (75+) running including multiple SCVHOST's that i dont remember having before. I've tried a system restore and I've also tried to restore my MSCONFIG configuration, yet nothing is helping. I've run malwarebytes and it turned up nothing for viruses Please help!

Also wanted to mention I have 6GB of RAM so a lack of RAM is definitely not an issue. I am running VISTA Home Premium 64bit.

And one more thing; my physical memory is around 75-85% constantly whereas before I mucked with MSCONFIG, it was around 40%.

A:incredibly slow after running msconfig

I also want to mention that when I was in MSCONFIG I also went to the "Boot" tab, then advanced options and put the number to two. I believe I could have chosen up to 6. However, now my only option is 1. Is this causing the problem?

Help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

The Lenovo S41 I've had for a little under two years started running incredibly slow one day out of the blue. I checked the CPU through task manager and after the initial login, the CPU never runs above 20% utilization at 0.48 GHz. I've run the Lenovo Solutions Center but haven't found anything wrong. Reseting my OS and updating the BIOS has not fixed the issue. A few days before it started running this slow, I noticed that I heard small clicking noises coming that I had never heard before. Is it possible that my CPU fan has stopped working and therefore my CPU doesn't run above 20% to not risk overheatting? The Lenovo Solutions Center did not mention any diagnostics regarding the fan, and the online diagnostics on the fan through the Service Bridge said ModuleNotSupported. I ran the OneKey Optimizer Dust Remover for the first time and heard nothing whirring up and no dust coming out. How can I find out if this is the issue, and if not, any ideas on what it could be?

Hi aryali97 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
As the diagnostics may have not picked indicators for possible hardware failures, you may need to open it up to inspect the source of the audible clicks. Emerging issue usually reveals as slow performance and noises at first before it progress , so having backed up your files would be advantageous.
 
You can download the hardware manual for the disassembly guide if needed from the support site using your serial number or better yet have it checked by your IT department or local service center specially if there are palpable hot spots and warm air from the vents that was not usually so.
 
Hope this helps answer your query and guide you how to proceed next. 
Update us how it goes.
 
Regards 
 
Edited note:
You may try further fan testing and tools from here .

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should not have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Before you do anything else, please create a folder for HijackThis and put it in a permanent folder (like C:\HJT) instead of the Temp folder. This is required because HijackThis will create backups and we don't want them to be deleted.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that Display the contents of System Folders' is checked. Windows XP's search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that Search system folders, Search hidden files and folders, and Search subfolders are checked.

The Temp folders should be cleaned out periodically as installation programs and hijack programs leave a lot of junk there. Download Index.dat Suite to clean out all the temp folders. Do not run it yet.

Download CWShredder and click on Fix (it will automatically fix anything it finds for you). If it asks if you want to delete a certain random file, choose No and post that filename here.

I would appreciate your assistance. I have a relatively new machine, HP, 4 gig RAM, 500 GIG HD, flat panel, canon 4-in-1, wired keyboard and mouse. Running Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit. I'm going to try and give as much detail as the sticky posts requested.

For approximately a year now it has run perfectly (after an initial two hard driver crashes - when I had gone 30 years without one).

Several days ago, there was a half-second power outage and the computer turned off in mid-use. When I initially rebooted it ran very very slow. I rebooted again and this seemed to fix the problem. Went back to running lightning fast as normal.

A few hours later, in the midst of being used, it suddenly came to a screeching halt. I rebooted again. This time, on the screen where you choose which user to log in as, there was a momentary video glitch (black lines running from left edge of screen towards the right, about halfway down the screen). This only lasted for about a second, but has never happened before. At first the mouse worked fine, and then as I moved it toward my login button it began to move jerkily. Stopping in one place, then a fraction of a second later jumping to another location where it also hung for a fraction of a second, etc.... Rebooted again. Same problem. Rebooted again, this time selecting a prior saved configuration, one from directly before the power spike. This appeared to solve the problem for a few hours, althoght the Norton anti-viru...

I have a handful of fairly serious problems so please bare with me!
I am running windows 7 and recently suffered the "setting up personalized settings" failure where my computer would only load this page andnothing else.  At first I believed this to be a virus (where as I now believe it to be a windows update, as it happened to my partners computer and was quickly resolved with another update), and was desperate to clear it so blitzed it with antivirus scans (malware bytes, spyware s&d) and attempts to clear it.  Eventually, the problem ended HOWEVER my desktop now loads as normal but is cripplingly slow (it takes roughly 7 hours for me to do something that would usually take 15 minutes), and now am also unnable to load safe mode due to a crash on loading CLASSPNP.SYS.  I believe im my haste to fix it i have deleted some key system file.  I have attempted to run /SCANNOW in the command pannel to check and fix for errors however have only got this to run once and took roughly 24 hours to get to 37% where it crashed.  In desperation i tried to install ubuntu but encountered an error in installation.  Sometimes when shutting down i get an error about windows not being able to run command prompt as i am running too many 32 bit programs.  On top of this, my laptops fan doesnt seem to be running!
Please advise me as to what i should do, re-install windows? press on with ubuntu? throw the laptop in the bin?! thanks

A:Serious problems after update - incredibly slow running, did i delete something?

Try this:  http://www.maximumpc.com/how-to-repair-a-faulty-windows-installation-without-reformatting/
If it doesn't work, then you may be looking at a reinstall of Windows (backup the system first).
 
If the fan isn't running, that could be causing a lot of problems (due to overheating).
I'd suggest starting with some free bootable diagnostics (outside of Windows):  http://www.carrona.org/initdiag.html

I know there's a sticky around here about posting a thread that only says "my system is running slowly," but...

This system (my son-in-law's,) has become virtually unusable and I have tried every standard method I've ever heard of - ATF cleaner, SuperAntiSpyware, MalwareBytes, Secunia PSI, Vipre Antivirus scans.

There is a standard 15-30 second wait between any two given actions on this thing, including typing more than 20 or 30 characters of this post. My first implulse would be to just do a doc-dump onto an external drive and reload Windows to factory-new, but I haven't the faintest clue where the system discs are and I'd like a solution that's less-Draconian.

Recommendations?

Hi
 
Can anyone please offer a bit of advice? Interent explorer is running incredibly slowly, on my friends HP Presario CQ61 Notebook, it is taking ages to load a page, to be honest the whole laptop has completely slowed down. I have run Malware bytes and removed any potential infections and I have run the windows disk clean but no joy. Google chrome is marginally faster but still not usable. 
There is a toshiba laptop, a desktop and tablet all connected to the same wifi network and they are all running fine. I did a broadband speed test on the HP and the Tosiba. The HP has a ping of  2123ms but the Tosiba is 92ms.
The HP is newer than my Tosiba and it is running windows 7 64 bit, it has 2GB ram.
Any advice or pointers would be very much appriciated.
Many thanks

A:internet explorer running incredibly slow on HP laptop

Hello itter! Do you know if you have any browser extensions or add ons running on your internet browsers? That can slow down your load times a lot.You can click the settings icons on both IE and Chrome to find out.For IE: Click the settings icon in the top right and click "Manage Add-ons"For Chrome: Click the settings icon in the top right and click "Settings", then on the left sidebar click "Extensions" If there's anything weird, remove them. Also you could try resetting your browser settings in both Chrome and IE. Have you tried running other virus and malware scanning programs, such as Hitman Pro or Adwcleaner? Malwarebytes doesn't catch everything, but it catches a lot! Sometimes you need a second opinion and Hitman Pro is one of my favorites. However, I've found that Adwcleaner can find certain things that both MBAM and Hitman Pro can't. Also, you could run CCleaner if you haven't done that and use their temporary file cleaner and registry repair. You can find quick links to these programs at <Link Removed> I'm not sure if I can post that link for you or not (if not I'll remove it), but you can download and try those programs for free and hopefully it will help you out. Let me know what you find out.Edit: Link removed to a website that has not been previously approved for downloads. ~ Animal

It might have to do with the graphics card that you have, seeing as the other components in your computer are 100 percent OK with Vista's requirements. You should try to switch off all the fancy effects in Vista and see if that brings your performance up or not.

Hi,
I'm having quite a few issues with my computer and just don't know enough to know what to do or where to start with what the root problem(s) are...or if this is even the right board to post to! I just want my computer to a point where it runs well again and to keep it that way.

Here's some info about my computer. I hope it's helpful to start with:
Windows Vista
Dell Vostro VOSTRO_200
Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E7200 @2.53 GHz
3 GB RAM
32-bit Operating System

Here are the biggest issues lately:

1. On startup, the fan runs really hard and fast...almost like an engine revving up. It also does it if the computer has gone to sleep after inactivity. If the screen is left on, the computer will wake itself back up after a period of time and the fan will rev like it does on startup. This doesn't seem like a good thing...but I have no clue what to do.

2. Recently, I've been deleting old photos and files that aren't needed and using Slim Cleaner+ to clean up my computer to help it run better.

I updated my firefox and went to reboot my system...and it didn't want to reboot. I had to hit ctl/alt/del to get to the option to go to boot system and managed to get my computer going that way.

I am trying to help a friend. Her computer would hardly boot yesterday, but after 10 minutes or longer, it would load. Programs hardly run and if they do are impossibly slow to run. Windows task manager keeps popping up. It won't close. We tried to set the registry back to an earlier date, but it won't take. My guess is that is a virus. She had AVG anti-virus running now it won't run either. Any thoughts? Any reliable online site which could scan the computer?

Hi,

My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 510m with Windows Xp ....

It is about 5 or 6 yrs old and quite well used..

Unfortunately it is not running very well lately...

and it is slow at loading webpages at times...

but in particular on websites like yahoo..

I am lately having problems sending emails...

and running videos say on youtube in particular if I have
say more than 3 or 4 webpages open...
Often it will not play video if I have been using the computer
for sometime...

I even have problems posting on even on here....or other forums..
I often have to copy the wording ,open another page and paste.
and post on the 2nd page...to send a post..

Im not sure if it may be my wifi...or my computer....
although wifi appears connected.

Sometimes my computer crashes when using Adobe flash..

I have ran several Antivirus and spyware malware programs over the last few months..
such as Trend Micro...and Avira, Malwarebytes and Spybot...

My Disc is quite full..so this may be one of the reasons why I am having problems...
BUT I have had it almost full in the not too distant past and it had ran reasonably OK..
and I did not have the problems with yahoo or sending emails from yahoo...

sometimes the computer just freezes up completely..and I cannot turn it off as usual..
so I have to switch it off by unplugging it..

It runs reasonable if I only have a few webpages open..and usually after I have reloaded it.

BUt it takes a long time to reload...and I get somethings that show up that... Read more

Ok guys, I purchased this laptop a few months ago so its not getting old or anything, I decided to format the harddrives (C) and install Vista again because of a virus.

I then installed all of windows updates and drivers i could find on dells website. (I'm not sure if i missed one).
Before the reformat, I could run the windows Aero theme and run many programs without a freeze and multi-task alot. Ever since the reformat, even after reinstalling the drivers (to which i know of), i have to run the theme at (basic) and turn off all aero themes and make sure i only run one program in the taskbar. Whenever i watch a video on Media Player it stutters every 1-3 minutes basically freezing then replaying after 6 seconds.

All i know is i could do all of this stuff before reformatting and theres no reason it shouldn't be doing now.

This happened to me last week so i decided to reformat and install Vista again, it happened again after a few hours. The weird thing is that it comes and goes, it'll either happen after a random time or straight away from start up. it usually happens when im watching a video, its like the memorys full.

Also, i only used the discs dell provided and the drivers on dells website throughout all of this.

The drivers i installed were:

Video (Intel Media Accelerator)
Touchpad

Here are the specifications of the laptop.

Vista 32bit
Dell Inspiron 1545
2 Hard Drives
(C = 75GB free out of 134GB) -(D = 3.69GB free out of 13GB) (OS on C)

Hi everyone, I'm looking for some advice with the day-to-day running of my laptop, now nicknamed the Craptop.

It is quite a dated model now, Acer Aspire 5735, running Windows Vista Home Basic SP2. It used to be pretty speedy when it came to YouTube videos and other media, but it is now pretty awful, with videos constantly stop-starting and jumping.

The whole system seems to run a whole lot slower than it used to, what sort of things should I be trying/looking for?

Any help appreciated

I have tried to go through all of the steps listed for a computer running slow and for the Malware removal but I'm having no luck. I have a fairly new Windows Vista machine that runs with 80% or more CPU usage even just after startup.

It is impossible to use some programs that we really need to use on this machine (like AutoCad) and the others are just so slow that we avoid this computer.

I have two other computers both running Windows XP that are much faster but this is the newest computer and it's very frustrating not to be able to use it. Maybe I need more RAM or something like that but not being a computer whiz I don't know what to do now.

ANY help you could provide would be GREATLY appreciated.

Hi All,
I have a friend at work with an Acer Aspire 5100 laptop running Windows Vista Home Basic and AVG Free Version.
Vista is running so slow it’s not funny. IE: to open the pictures folder will take about 45 – 130 seconds and then to open each photo it will take up to 3 minutes.
The first thing I could find is it only has 512mb RAM shared with the graphics card so I have ordered 2 x 2GB DDR2 667MHz RAM Sticks for her.
I should get them Monday or Tuesday.
Is there anything I should be looking for that would slow vista down so bad?
The other thing is that Acer have split the 80Gb HDD into 2 x 35Gb Partitions, I was thinking of reformatting the HDD back to just 1 x 78Gb Partition.
Does anyone have any theories on this matter?
Thanks for your help and comments
Andrew
