How to speed up my TOSHIBA Laptop

by shiva4sap / March 14, 2009 8:16 AM PDT

I am having TOSHIBA Laptop with Vista.
Vista & MS Office are registered. And some more are un registered like pdf etc., So it is much time taking to open MS office files. A month before it was running good.

So, now my Laptop is running very slow. I am getting "Get Genuine Office" even though it is genuine office. While i tried many times to validate it, but it is not taking as validation.

Mcafee Antivirus is also not updating when i am trying to update and scan my Laptop.

I am using Skype and gtalk etc., functions in it. Is they create any problem. Kindly help me to speed up my Laptop

Thanks in Advance

Could the Genuine Office Trail be expiring?

Also tell what you do for Malware.

-> Again. No off the shelf Toshiba comes with Office. They come with a Trial Version that is "Genuine."
