My computer seems to be running slower then before, and i was wondering if theres thing that i can do to "speed" it up?
like for example, everquest 2 i have seems to get more frame lag now...

I already searched for spyware, there is none. Maybe its just has a lot of stuff on it? so is there any programs that can kind of "clean" my computer?

:whistling:

use Tune Up utilities trial 2006 to speed up the overall performance of your machine. Also make sure your drivers are up to date.

Does your computer take a long time to startup?

There are so many things you can do... for starters

START>RUN> type in %temp% and delete everything in that folder... usually you can feel it speed up immediatly in application using.

There are various other things you can do. Let me see if I can find my own post, and I can get your machine cleaned up a bit and runnin a bit faster im sure.

i did windows clean up, used the program called CleanUp! and that cleans A LOT.

i also have the TuneUp's RAM thing so i can free up ram before i want to play everquest 2, so i think its fine. but i only have 512, and i need to get a new comp.

Before you go out and buy a new computer, please post all your system specs here. We might be able to help you upgrade your components to make it work faster than buying a new machine
