Hi,

Check Your computer with:

1. Nod32 online

2. Spybot - Search and destroy

    Informations how to install and use Spybot You will find here.

 

Do thing written below:

1. Clean cache with this program.

2. Defragment your disk.

3. Check this HP document with title "Some Software Applications May Cause Windows to Startup or Operate Slowly".

 

If this won't solve Your problem then:

1. Write down Your p/n number which is under Your computer and looks like this.

2. You've got this problem from the begining or it happend on last days?

A PC speed up software can do the following:-
• Optimize your Internet settings.
• Free up hard drive space by deleting junk files
• Cleaning out history files
• Increase your system memory.
• Disk defrag
• Clean your registry, fixing any PC errors.

 

I am using SpeedyPC Pro http://www.anysoftwaretools.com/speed-up-pc.html and it works fine for my HP Pavilion 1012 (Windows 7 - 32bits). Hope it helps.

i need to speed up my computer its real slow

I know having a slow computer could be really annoying! I hope you solve your problem.
Your computer could be slow as a result of a few reasons. So, I'll give you some tips.

1-Defragmentation

Try defragmenting your hard disk.

2-Virus

You could have a virus. Scan your computer with a good antivirus.

3-Disk Errors

This could also be caused by bad sectors and disk errors, so you should run a disk checkup.

4-Clean System

Also try cleaning your physical drive that has the system (usually drive c).

5-Fix Registry

A last resort would be checking your registries but that isn't advisable.
Anyway, you could find more details here: http://www.techyv.com/questions/my-laptop-running-so-slow-i-need-help-fixing-it
Good Luck!
