    If Mark’s suggestions fail to make your computer run faster, install and run http://www.ccleaner.com/ (use both cleaner and registry repair tools) and then http://www.defraggler.com/ (defragments your computer’s hard drive).

    You should also consider installing the latest service pack (a special kind of update) for your version of Windows. Let me know which version of Windows your computer is running, so that I can direct you to the correct service pack.

    If my suggestions fail to make your computer run faster, you should consider reinstalling your operating system and software. To maintain optimal performance, I usually reinstall the operating systems and software on my computers at least once per year.
