    I would uninstall the parts of Yahoo that you do not need. If you do not use Yahoo Messenger, then uninstall that.

    I recommend that you go to and get AD-AWARE and SpyBot Search & Destory. Install, run, update and scan your computer with both programs.

    This double whammy will help keep you safe and running faster.

    Good luck and Happy Computing!

    Working with a slow computer can be time consuming as programs/ applications take a long time to start. This problem is more pronounced in computers which have been used for 6 or more months. More information at

    open task manager and see what is taking up all the memory in proceses.. then go into msconfig and go to the startup tab and disable stuff you dont need. Download adaware from and run a scan..
