I too recommend Dale franklynn.  He was wonderful in sorting out my laptop.  He does it online, so quick, and he lets you watch what he does on your computer.  I never recommend anyone, but he was fantastic.

good luck,

If it's slow starting up it's possibly got a lot of programs or utilities scheduled to boot up on startup. It would be worth getting someone to check this out for you. If it is generally slow it's worth clearing out as much as possible from your hard drive and then de fragmenting it. My laptop sometimes runs slowly and that is because it is downloading upgrades automatically leaving less memory and processor power for the programs I'm using.

Have you a) used the disk cleaner recently or b)used the disk defragmenter;

Both of these will speed your computer up by gettig rid of rubbish and restoring files to their correct place.

Do not do a system restore unless you have saved stuff on an external hard drive as you could lose saved work or documents

Hi M, have you tried to do a system restore to the date before you noticed it was slowing up.My laptop did the same after an update so i did a SR and alls good now.If this works you can then look at the updates to see which one caused the prob.

Good luck,

Jon

Thank you Chrispy,

I don't have a problem with Chrome as I don't have it. It is something that has or is slowing down my computer and it is driving me mad not knowing why !!  Thank's for your reply. Mervyn.

Hi Agente,

I don't need an engineer, I just need advice ! If i need an engineer I have a very good one in Corlay. At the moment I'm on vacation in England which gives me time to relaxe !! time to try and get my laptop up to speed. I must say without success. It seems the computer tells you to do things which in fact it can't do !! It will be alright on the night when I get back to Brittany and if need a bofin, I have one very close to me. Thank you for your reply.

 Regards,  Mervyn.

if you have chrome click on the three bars to get the menu. select settings/advanced settings /reset factory settings. this will clean chrome up and remove so called bloatware
