Is Your Laptop Running Slow?

Apr 22, 2008
There is nothing like the speed of a brand new laptop. Everything works fine, and fast, just like it should. But over time, your laptop begins running slow. Programs don't start as fast as it once did, and sometimes it even takes a while for it to start up. Let's see if we can fix that.

Your laptop needs to have maintenance done to it periodically. These are not difficult things, and are also items you can do for yourself. Sort of like changing the oil in the car. Although it may not seem like it needs it, you should still do it. Computers are the same.

If you really do not have anything on the computer of important value to you, then you could just reformat it. Just grab the CD that came with the computer and put it in. This will then run and completely erase everything that was on your computer. Yes, everything!

The most likely culprit for the slow laptop is an error in the registry files. But, the problem is most people have no idea where these files are, and really do not even know they exist.

The computer runs on a basic set of instructions. These instructions are contained in a section of the computer known as the registry files. If you know what you are doing, then you may be able to find the problem and fix it. But if you don't, and you change the wrong thing, there goes the computer and you will be reformatting the hard drive.

Registry cleaners are the names of programs that can be downloaded and installed on your computer. These programs will scan the registry and give you a list of all of the problems you have.

A registry cleaner will basically run a scan of your entire computer, including the registry, and find all of the errors. Then, you just tell the software to fix them, and it does.

The benefit of a windows registry tune-up is that you can do it yourself, because most registry cleaning utilities are easy to use. All you need to do is, install it, run the program and let it find and list the errors for you. Before letting the program fix the errors, choose the create a back up option, just in case something should go wrong, and then click fix registry and you are done. The program does the rest for you and you wont have to suffer from your laptop running slow again.
