Slow Running computer

Discussion in 'OT Technology' started by VenusGirlTrap, Jun 21, 2003.

  1. My computer has been running really slow latley and I heard that defraging the hard drive can help this situation. How do I do that?

    Thanks in advance!

    start menu---> accessories---> system toolss--->disk defrag

    may take quite awhile if youve never done it. and it is very possible that it is the cause of your problems. but theres also many other things that can make a system run slow

    good luck :bigthumb:

    yeah, post up if it helps or not. Could be a host of other things (lack of memory, virus, etc)

    What I would do is download a computer "optimizer" that will clean out unneeded registry entries, delete useless and old temporary files, etc... I've done it a few times on my Windows side, and it really helps.

    If its a older system, theres your answer, but if not, it could be a virus also. And do what Penguin said also
