Computer running slow!

Post by Hellblade on Tue Mar 24 2009, 03:52

My computer is running way slower than normal Sad
It is really annoying Evil or Very Mad

The main things affected are MSN and IE.

Like last week, I started downloading the latest verson of MSN via the web installer, now I was seeing if Microsoft were good like with the VB.NET Express Editions where if you cancel, it doesn't undo all changes and just continues where it left off but it didn't so it undid the changes then, I opened MSN and it installed the version I currently have again, and the next day is when I started noticing my computer slowed down kind of (It was at night when i di after canceling and going onto MSN again, I went to bed)

Anyone have an idea on how to fix it?
I think something like this happened before and I posted on some forums about it / how to fix it. I remember I asked my dad and he said to reinstall XP but I don't remember if that worked.

I would recommend destroying Microsoft.
However it may or may not fix the problem.

Get ToniArts EasyCleaner and clean up the registry, delete all shortcuts, and clear duplicates. EasyCleaner does that built in after scanning the computer. Have a go. It is the main speedup tools I use on a PC.

I just used CCleaner to clean up my registry, it seems to be abit better now (probably because most of the errors were microsoft stuff) but I will get that ToniArts EasyCleaner soon.

EDIT: I got ToniArts EasyCleaner and have just done the registy cleaner for now, it found like 457, way more then CCleaner would ever find Wink

Some can damage your registry which can ruin your system.

especially if you use a registry cleaner which was designed for XP and not tested on Vista that can also cause problems.

when you use any product which changes a lot of the registry I would recommend looking it up before you download and use it.

I reinstalled WinXP and so far, it seems to have solved the slowness.
The bad thing is when reinstalling XP, it down grades IE to IE 6 and WMP 11 to WMP 9 or 10 (not sure what one as haven't looked)

I downloaded IE8 as I thought, I'd have to install IE7 anyway (I still have installer on PC) and i think it installed faster then IE7 would have Smile

Yeah, it's faster to install because you have the option to install / download updates, where as IE7 just downloads them / installs them without asking Evil or Very Mad

IE8 is much better than IE7 Very Happy

You can't install IE8 on Windows 7 though, it is funny.
You can through MS Update, luckily, but...
We use the BETA on Windows 7, and trying to use Windows Vistas installer downloaded from MS Download center gives a message like this "This version only works on Windows Vista or newer", I actually shouted "WTF" but more in words rather than as a abbreviation when I read the error message. Crappy MS.
Get Safari 4 instead Wink

Haha, yeah MS are really bad at some things. I got WLM 2009, the latest version and it doesn't show my contacts and I did what MS said to do if it happens and it didn't fix it, lots of people have that problem so I don't see why MS don't either fix it or take it down so it can't be downloaded, I downloaded the offline installer - 134mb or something like that, complete waste of time :@
I downgraded to 8.1 (The 8.5 / 2008 installer said I wasn't connected to the internet when clearly I was and IE8 worked so it must have been, I acually laughed it where as with WLM 2009 not working I think I did what you did but I probably didn't shout it Razz)

Haha, yeah.

Microsoft doesn't fix up bugs until the next version of things normally, which is dumb
