I have a Panasonic Let's Note series notebook PC and I'm using Windows XP. It is a Japanese model similar to the North American Toughbook equivilent. For some time now I have been experiencing terribly slow operating speeds. I have been tremendously frustrated with it. Aside from possible occasional issues with my ADSL service, the problems seem to be with my PC. I can say this because I have another laptop connected to the same provider and I do not have the same problem. Someone suggested that I run a spyware program (Super Antispyware Free Edition). I did and it seemed to help a little. I have been running it regularly bt I haven't noticed much improvement. In fact, it seems to be back at square one -- a snail's pace! I need SPEED. Can you suggest anything? What can I do to significantly improve the overall operating system of my PC?

Hi capper, Welcome to Geeks to Go!

Take a look at this article by Artellos. What makes your machine slow? It provides ways of maintaining your system and/or improving performance/speed.

If you still have problems after that,

It is possible that you may have a Malware issue. Malware advice can only be given by Staff Members and such subjects can only be discussed in the Malware Forums. START HERE...and post a new topic stating your problems HERE (No where else). When you get a clean bill of health from the Malware Staff, if you are still having problems, come back to this topic. Someone will be more than happy to assist you.

Be sure to ask questions if you have trouble with any of the instructions. Good Luck!
