  • IT depends on why it's slow. There are a few things you can try, though:
    1. Run a virus and spyare scan - fix any problems found
    2. Defragment the hard drive
    3. See how much hard drive space you have left - you may have maxed your harddrive space, especially if you store a lot of music or pictures. You might consider investing in an external hard drive for storage.
    4. See if you can add more RAM memory.
    Hope one of these works for you.

  • you can download "ccleaner" , it's free and will clear cookies, history, temp files, etc... you should also get a good virus & spyware program

  • depends. See first poster. If it's just old and you are used to a faster computer somewhere else, then there's not much you can do.
