Computer running slower that usual?

Hi,
I want to know why my computer isin't running as fast like it used to when I first bought which was about 6 years ago.
I ran a scan with both anti-virus and anti-malware both came back negative for infection. Here is how much my HD has:

Views: 162
Size:  12.4 KB

It's nearing to the full mark everyday I use it. Help on this important issue please?

Has it been clean installed or are you still running the factory bloatware installation?

re-install windows 7

I used the clean install option since I upgrade from XP. No, I was not using Windows 7 6 years ago, I was using XP, I upgraded to 7 I believe this past summer.

why it's running slower than 6 years ago ... because now you are running windows 7 on 1Gb of ram - on a p4.

try loosing some progs - use ccleaner to tidy up your system ... run scandisk and finally defrag the HDD.

it will make some difference ... but think about another Gig of ram (ideally 2)

I did the above tasks I believe a few days ago and I still have the same lag effect afterwards. The idea about doubling RAM for me is kinda out of reach since I don't have the money to do it at this moment.

As a quick fix do you have access to a stick drive or sd card that you could set up as readyboost?

Yes I do, What will this program do? Do I lose information?

Not all drives will allow this feature but if it's a quick drive it should work nicely. Insert drive, go to my computer and right click on the drive, left click properties, click on readyboost and choose all of the drive or a portion to alot to readyboost.

Just use the available balance or transfer all data off the drive and use the whole thing!
