Hey guys,
I'm using a Dell Latitude D610 laptop I purchased a year and a half ago through a college laptop program Gettysburg College offers (I'm a sophomore!). Unfortunately, this baby has been used for hours on end every single day and holds a lot of my school papers, pictures and favorite tunes. Every two months I burn these documents onto CDs and delete them, so as to free up space (and I still have well over half of my hard drive free as shown to me when I right-clicked "C:/"), but my computer is still starting up VERY slowly. I've gone into MSCONFIG and requested that only the very important programs (AIM and my mailbox, basically) start up when I turn my computer on, but it's still really lagging. I've AdAwared it and checked for viruses AND defragged and still nothing. I would really appreciate it if some nice being out there could help me out; my slow computer is making me late for classes and just really stressing me out. Thanks!

Hello and welcome to Geeks to Go!

Hmm.. did you try doing disk clean up and defragging?

Also, clean your temporary internet files and clean out those stail cookies :whistling: }

If those are not clean, that will slow up your computer badly.

I have done all of the above. Still not speeding up my startup time. I don't appear to have a virus, either...

Which are malware related?

Unfortunately, I listen to all my music on ITunes, and the new version requires Quicktime to work.

Any suggestions?

Ditch Symantec its garbage. It hinders far more than it helps.

The easiest solution since you have backups is to format the Hard Drive and start over.

Sure, there are ways to fix the problem that you are having, but for the most expediant solution with the best performance gains, nothing beats a format/reinstall.

Make sure if you do this to get all the Windows Updates.

Also use pretty much anything other than Norton or McAfee for AV, make sure you have a decent firewall too.

And never ever ever ever use Internet Explorer..

Ok, im hoping your not using more than one AV at a time...If so, thats the problem! You should only run one AV at a time. They dont get along to well.

And like deathninja said. Norton 06 uses alot of resources and is notorious for slowing down your system. Norton came out with 07 version now. I have used it at work and they have fixed ALOT of the problems they were having with 06.

Before you do anything drastic (like reformatting) try to get your hands on norton antivirus 2007 or (if youre running two AV's at once) uninstall one.

It is not secure.

If you like web delivered viruses use Internet Explorer.
