This could be due to the startup programs in the system tray of your computer.
1. Click 'Start'
2. Click 'Run'
3. In the 'Open' box, type: msconfig
4. Click OK
5. Click the 'Startup' tab at the top of system configuration utility
6. Go to google.com with each of these 'startup items' and check to see if they're essential for the operation of your computer.
i.e. qttask is quick time media player - obviously not essential to have running when your computer boots up. Uncheck that from the list.
Hope this helps,
hey everyone thanks for checkin out the post,
my computers been running unusually slow lately. it was running fine up until about a few days ago.
what had happened was i was installing adobe CS3 updates when my computer crashed right in the middle of it.
ever since then my computer has been taking forever to load anything. even the mouse has trouble keeping up and stutters. also, the battery light turns on and off rhythmically about every second.
if anyone has had this problem or knows how to fix it id greatly appreciate it. thanks.
