I reinstalled my OS several months ago.
Out of nowhere, my laptop has slowed down to a crawl.
I thought it was that C drive was fragmented...but there is nothing to defrag...0% fragmentation. Why is it never fragmented??
OK, I have THE worst internet connection there is (hughesnet), but
I do not have any other choice living way out in the boonies.
Now, I tolerate the internet being at a crawl (dial up would be faster),
but my laptop is super slow even to paste something into a WORD
document, to open pics, to browse ANYthing in explorer, etc.
I literally sit here watching the circle spin and spin for over a minute (that is why I thought the laptop needed to be defragged),
for each thing I wish to do (non internet related).
I have ALWAYS used the following programs even on my MUCH
older desktop that runs Vista and never had this kind of slow down.
BTW, I do not like MS Security Essentials, and do not have it on my laptop.
Here are the programs I have used and 2 newer ones:
CA- PC tuneup (newer one I am using and like it)
Jet cleaner (newer one I am using and like it)
Now, having used these programs (not the newer ones LOL), I have used for years and years, never had any conflicts, so I really do not know what else can be wrong.
Even when I type in WORD or even notepad my laptop cannot keep up with the words. I have to stop and wait for the words/letters to appear.
Any help would be appreciated...thank you.
