I dont know whats wrong with my computer! Its slow, IE8

Customer Question

I don't know what's wrong with my computer! It's slow, IE8 constantly has to close, and videos are choppy when playing (if they play). I have vista on a 6 month old compaq presario. Is there any site out there that can scan my computer and fix it for me for free?

I would like to assist you regarding this issue.

Open the run box. (to open run box press ** Windows key + R)

** Windows key lies between Alt & Ctrl button



hit ENTER.

It should open the System Configuration Utility window.

Click on Services tab.

Put a check in the Hide all Microsoft services checkbox.

Click on Disable All button.

Click on Startup tab. Checkmark all the entries and then click on Disable All button.

Press OK button and then Restart button on the following window.

Let the computer restart.

Once you're back on the desktop, you'd get a window for System Configuration Utility. Put a check in the box Don't Show.... and then press OK button.

Let me know if this improves the condition

please download & install Firefox from the link mentioned below.

Install it. Firefox is a web browser like Internet explorer.

You can do all the things with firefox that you do with internet exploer.

But it is more secure, much faster & easy to use than IE. Try it.

Let me know if you are having same problem with firefox also.
