    Default Laptop running slow

    Hi people I'm laptop is running really slow, I can't have iTunes and Internet explorer running at the sametime, when I switch it on it takes abt 5mins before I can use it, it just takes ages to do anything. What can I do to make it run abit quicker? I've ended all the programs that I don't run. Thanks

    Uninstall any programs you don't need
    Download and install a program called CCleaner, go to the tools section and run registry cleanup.
    Download and install User Profile Hive Cleanup tool from Microsoft - just Google it.
    Run defrag on your hard drive

    I'm an IT tech and I perform these 4 steps on most customer's PCs and it speeds it up no end. There are further more advanced steps that I perform but if you don't know what you're doing you can go drastically wrong so I won't advise them in public forum!

    If you are familiar with msconfig command, run it after you have uninstalled any unwanted programs.

    Programs listed in startup will slow down your pc and the boot process.

    Also try starting it in safe mode and do a virus scan.

    run spybot search and destroy
    run regseeker from softpedia
    run disk clean up
    run defrag.

    job done.

    dont format, total overkill at this stage.
