slow computer
« on: January 08, 2012, 05:47:53 PM »
I have a compaq sg3 220uk computer running Windows 7 Home Premium. I don't have a lot of programs on it. The hard disc is about 1/4 full. recently it seems to have become very slow. I use Firefox and these days it can take over a minute for a proram or change of program to appear. Just now it took ebay nearly 2 mins. to load. I have used Windows clean up program but it has made no difference. A broadband speed checker showed a download speed of 7mps. What can have happened.? I am sure this slowness is fairly recent.
Kindest regards  to Corinne
