    My computer has been running super slow lately. I found another thread with a similar problem and followed the first steps given by blues_harp28. I ran the security scan and AdwCleaner. But my reports are probably different from the other thread so I thought I'd start a new thread. Below are my results.

    Close all open windows first, then double-click AdwCleaner.exe to load its main window.

    Click the "Scan" button, then allow the scanning process to finish.
    (Note: Several seconds may pass before the scanning process starts, so be patient.)

    Click the "Cleaning" button, then click "OK".

    Allow the cleaning process to finish.

    When it's finished, click "OK" in each window that appears.

    The computer will restart.

    When the log appears during restart, save it.

    Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the ENTIRE log here.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    Go here, then click the large blue "Download Now @ Author's Site" button to download and save TFC.exe (Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer) to your desktop.

    After it's downloaded and saved, close all open windows.

    Double-click it to load its main window.

    Click the "Start" button.

    If there are a large number of temp files or if there are multiple user accounts, the temp file deletion process may appear to freeze and may take a few minutes, so don't interfere with or abort it.

    After it's finished, restart the computer.

    Advise how many temp files in MB's were found and deleted.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    Click Start, then type MSCONFIG in the search or run box, then press the Enter key.

    When the small "System Configuration" window appears, click the "Startup" tab.

    Write down ONLY the names in the "Startup Item" column that have a checkmark next to them.

    If the "Startup Item" column isn't wide enough to see the entire name of any of them, widen the column.

    Submit those names here in a vertical list.

    Make sure to spell them EXACTLY as you see them there.

    You appear to have a Dell Latitude E6320 laptop.

    If that's correct, it supports up to 8 GB(8192 MB) of RAM.

    It has Intel graphics that has a large amount of RAM dedicated to it.

    Since it's running Windows 7 64-bit, you might consider maxing it out with RAM.

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    Right-click COMPUTER, then click Properties.

    When the system properties window appears, look at the Installed memory (RAM) line.

    Advise how much RAM it has and how much is usable.

    That's about 5.26 GB of temp files that were deleted and reclaimed as hard drive free space. (y)

    -------------------------------------------------

    Uncheck these startup entries:

    Intel(R) Common User Interface

    Intel(R) Common User Interface

    Intel(R) Common User Interface

    Google Chrome

    InstallShield Update Service

    AcroTray - Adobe Acrobat Distiller helper application.

    Adobe CS4 Service Manager

    Adobe Version Cue CS4

    InstallShield Update Service

    QuickTime


    After you're done, click Apply - OK/Close - Restart.

    Run the computer for awhile and make sure everything is still working okay.

    Advise if speed has improved any.

    Okay, that's good. (y)

    When you get around to it, get these programs up-to-date.

    18.0.0.194 is the most current version of Adobe Flash Player for Internet Explorer and other browsers.

    39.0 is the most current version of Mozilla Firefox.

    Ok I unchecked the startup items you mentioned and I updated flash player and Firefox. I've noticed it definitely starts up much faster now. So far it hasn't gone into "slow mode". So it seems better now. Thanks!!

    I thought there was maybe a sticky thread on here somewhere on maintaining your pc and keeping it "tuned up"? I was looking for that but couldn't find it.

    I'm glad to hear that, and you're welcome. :D :p :)

    There are other entries in the startup list that possibly can be unchecked, but I'm not familiar with those programs and don't know if you need them to load and run.

    Oh ok I'll have a look through it again. Is there a good check list somewhere that I could go through to clean up my pc every so often. Or I suppose I could just go through the above steps again if it gets slow and lagging again.

    There is no single checklist for maintaining and keeping a computer clean because everyone uses a computer differently and everyone doesn't use the same tools and procedures.

    A lot of good information for maintaining a computer can be found here, so all you need to do is browse through some of the threads here.

    You can also ask us questions if you're not sure about something.

    By doing this, you can create a checklist over time that works for you.

    Actually just thought of one more question...I often have lots of programs open at the same time. Like for example I keep Outlook open so I know when I have new email, I often have Photoshop, Dreamweaver and Chrome all open too because I work between them. But I know having lots of programs open like that can also slow my computer down. But I don't want to have to keep closing and opening them while I work so do you have any tips on that?

    I've never used Adobe Photoshop or Dreamweaver, but I've heard they're system-hungry.

    I also have never used Google Chrome, but I've heard the same about it.

    If you use and keep several programs open at the same time, that's definitely going to have an affect on speed and performance.

    Personally, I never open and use more than 1 or 2 programs at a time.

    As I already said, everyone uses a computer differently and has different habits.
