Thread: Optimization Made Simple?

  1. #1
    Ok, heres the deal, my computer continues to grow slower, no matter what i do. Ive tried to delete files, both with add/remove program and the hard way, sifting through folders. Yet now when i try to do a simple shutdown, programs lockup and unless i sit and play the "click game" the pc won't shutdown.

    Basicly im looking for a program that will actually help me, lol. Ive tried to format the HD, but i keep getting an error saying it can't run in safemode. Is this some sort of XP crap?

    btw im running a 2.6 P4, 512DDR 160HD GeForce FX 5200 256MB

    intresting


    Have you run antivirus software recently?

    When was the last time you defragged your HDD?

    Have you used a registry cleaning app such as window washer or JV16 power tools?

    I scan about once a week, i defrag every two weeks or more if needed. Oh and yes ive used windows washer 5.0...

    Im sure the problems are all linked to one insignificant thing that is creating a domino effect.First one to figure out what gets a cookie, lol.

    Nope don't think so.
    Sounds like user error.
    SpySweeper is an excellent program, far better than Spybot IMO.
    Have you looked on the FastTrack network?
    Ultra WinCleaner is a good app for general maintenance.

    Bite the bullet, visit BlackViper, then reduce the unwanted startups to a minimum.

    You may be best served by a simple format and reinstall at this point.
    Then make a bigger effort to maintain your system.
