i cleaned up the laptop.Maybe clean out all of the junk in your temp files and defrag?
Processor speed and RAM have very little to do with Internet speed, if you want to browse the net faster, you'll have to pay for a faster internet connection.My old laptop had Vista Home Basic with 1/2 gig of RAM. I thought I would be burning up the 'Net with 7 Premium and 3 gig RAM. Seems slower to me. And it locks up at least once a day. :steamed:
A clean Install is always the best as it prevents any old garbage from ruining your new Windows 7 installation.Upgrade
Make sure you check all boxes when doing disk clean up. Also run Spy Bot Search & Destroy which is free and works great:wavey:Maybe clean out all of the junk in your temp files and defrag?
I didnt think it would be any faster. I thought it would be the same.Honestly, anyone claiming the W7 is slower than Vista on the same machine must have upgraded from Vista to W7 and hoped it would get faster.
W7 is dramatically pared down code compared to Vista, it is optimized to run on the very same hardware as WXP and it handles resources better than both of them. The preceding is a professional technical evaluation, not conjecture.
If your machine is actually running slower than before the possible reasons are legion but, I'd be willing to bet it all started with an upgrade disk.
You can't make your pinto faster by dumping all the parts from a Ferrari in the engine compartment and closing the hood. Start fresh, back up your data and load W7 all by it's lonesome, it's a matter of night and day.
Also, when you upgrade you leave all of the buggy little glitches behind that you had been dealing with on your PC. Sometimes that's no big deal, sometimes it's a nightmare to figure out and fix.
Are you saying your internet is slower or are you saying your operating system is slower?I didnt think it would be any faster. I thought it would be the same.
Hell, it may not even be my OS. It may be something with my provider or something else . Its only a little slower.
