decline of user-abused laptop performance

September 1, 2010 at 11:28:33
Specs: Windows 7
a few weeks ago i accidently unplugged my laptop without shutting down the system, and, i've done this several times, when i checked my physical memory, it says physical memory available: 2595
physical memory total:3950

is shutting down the laptop or unplugging the laptop without shutting down the system affect this? and i feel the difference, before the shutting downs occur, my laptop runs fast, but, now, it's not too good, do you all have any solutions?

Unplugging a computer instead of shutting it down will not reduce your memory. What it could do, however, is cause configuration files or registry entries not to be completely clean that could affect performance potentially.

Its much more likely that you've installed programs that have stuff running at startup.

On Windows 7 you can run MSConfig (press the Windows key and R to bring up the run dialog) and go to the startup tab. Remove things that you don't need to have started up.
