PostSubject: Slow PC or Laptrop?   Wed Jul 03, 2013 6:59 am

My PC was suffering from all kinds of problems which are provided by down loads and hidden trojans and made it run slow.I spent a day looking for a Free programme that would address these problems and testing them, sad I know but I was not a happy bunny!"
Anyway the best PC cleaner that did the job and for free is "
Wise Care"
which I found to be impressive as it made my PC run a lot faster and it is safe to use.My "
Start up"
used to take ages around 2 minutes and now it is only 1 minute and programmes now run faster.So if you are suffering with a slow PC or Laptop then it won't hurt to give this progamme a go.

crap cleaner is also good and free, I also have the free version of AVG which is excellent, I always run crap cleaner everytime I shut down so there is no build up of 'crap'

Cheers

After you have run your cleaner/spybot programs, a defrag can't hurt and will usually help things. I also use the free AVG and find it very good at selective weeding.

ON A LIGHT NOTE.....
Bazz any weeding programmes can you send them to Dougie please Garden is like a forest again he just cannot keep up with it, he says he can sit on the balcony and literally watch the weeds growing

Very good idea re defrag will start doing that now T

Just a coincidence but I cleaned a friends laptop yesterday which was now taking a good 'FEW' minutes to boot up.

Anyway, long story short version:-
Turned out to be a 'O2 Dongle' he had installed fairly recently and the only thing I can presume was as the PC was starting it was instantly looking for the dongle, but because it was not plugged into the PC then obviously it could not find it until 'EVENTUALLY' it gave up looking for it.

Removed the dongle software, (which he never used anyway) and the PC was back to booting within a minute.

Still on a dongle problem.
I also have a O2 dongle (but never actually used it) but I also remember after trying it, I then had to go back into my network settings and re-change some information that the dongle software had taken over, text change as below.
''When finished using the O2 dongle, make sure to re-enable 'Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings' in:-
Network Connections >
WiFi Connection >
Properties >
Wireless Networks...''

************************************

If anyone is running short of space on their (normally) C: drive, then reduce the setting for 'System Restore' from 12% down to about 6 or 7%, the chances are that going back that far would not be needed and more often than not restore points going back that far will not usually work anyway.
Also disable the restore settings for all other drives/partitions, except for the operating drive/partition because they do not do anything anyway except take up space, System Restore only needs to be set for the operating drive/partition.
