    On my laptop which I have windows 7 I did a cleanup by hitting f8 and then going in safe mode and then malware to clean up my laptop. Can I do the same to my desktop that has windows vista .. why I did that was my pc was running really slow , laptop is running great now . Just wondering if I can do that on desk top. thanks

    should be able to do that on your desktop

    also have a look at the startup programs - they use memory and will slow performance

    start>
    on XP - RUN >
    on Vista / W7 - Search Bar>
    type
    MSCONFIG
    got the startup tab

    compare the programs to this database and see what you want to keep running
