I told you how to get to the programs, defragment the c partition, and you simply run disk cleanup on the c partition too.

Just run the programs.

Yes that is Diak cleanup, just let it run. After it runs make sure all the check boxes are checked then click ok and delete files.

Then defragment the hard drive 4 or 5 times.

I've been trying to download that and do the disk cleanup for the past 30 minutes- just for an idea of how slow this computer still is...

Would I be able to clean my disk and defragment my hard drive in safe mode? My computer seems to have run much quicker whilst being in that.

How many Important and Optional Updates did you install? Have they completed yet?

I could have already gone over your PC for you.

laptop slow
My daughter has an acer laptop with windows 7 home premium. It is really slow. She does not appear to have any malware(malwarebytes antiwalware). She uses AVG free and it shows nothing. Her hard drive has more free space than used. What else can I check to help her out? Thanks, Debbie
