Windows 7: New Core i5 Laptop is not that fast after start up

12 Aug 2010   #11

Windows 7 Home edition (64 bit)

Yup i did set up a home group to link my computer with another one but unfortunately it didn't work.
Anyways, Thanks for the help. I really really appreciate your help.
I will probably follow your instructions. I think if there is less improvement, than i should cope with it rather than wasting my time on tweaks etc. Plus these tweaks can sometimes prove to be fatal.

Many tech enthusiasts find a clean-copy DVD of their OS version and reinstall using the OEM Product Key on the COA sticker on machine. Any installer can also have all versions unlocked using the ei.cfg removal tool.

Make your Recovery DIsks or save a Win7 backup image of the entire HD first so you have a path back to factory condition.

The installer is mostly driver-complete, with newer arriving quickly via optional Windows Updates. Any drivers then missing in Device Manager can be found on the Support Downloads webpage for your model computer or device.

Install programs slowly over time to gauge performance after each. Don't let any programs write themselves into msconfig>Startup as they become freeloaders on your RAM/CPU and can spy on you. I only allow AV and gadgets.

Use a lightweight free AV like MS Security Essentials which works perfectly with Windows 7 Firewall.

When it is finished, clean and order the HD perfectly using state-of-the-art free CCleaner then Auslogics Disk and Registry defraggers monthly.

Then save a Win7 Backup image externally so you never have to reinstall again, just reimage the HD or replacement using DVD or Repair CD.

In the meantime, uncheck everything in msconfig>Startup except AV and gadgets. Use a lightweight free AV solution like MSE or Avast 5. Uninstall bloatware using Revo in Advanced mode, then check if system files were damaged by bloatware by running sfc /scannow.

Clean and order the HD using CCleaner and Auslogics defraggers.
