How slow IS your computer?

Monday, June 25, 2012

So slow that I did the laundry waiting for my yahoo mail that's dedicated to SP to open.

So slow that I took a bath waiting for the bonus wheel to download.

So slow that I ate a sandwich (100% whole wheat bread) waiting to answer 3 trivia questions. (I missed one.)

So slow that I did a word puzzle while trying to give one spark goodie.

So slow that I give up!!

I NEED A NEW COMPUTER!!!!! TIME IS PRECIOUS!!!!!!

    Same with mine. We tried a few things and no improvement.

    So I bit the bullet and got a new one. Now I am flying! Chris emoticon

    Maybe you can have someone out to check it out? My FIL did that and his is better.

    I have a problem with mine too! When it's not going slower that molasses in January, it totally disregards my "send" command! Doesn't it realize I put a lot of thought into my clever, smart-alecky responses, and for it to censor my replies by not transmitting them, just jars my preserves! You're right, it's time for a trip to Best Buys to replace this blasted machine! (Hope it's not reading this...it may decide not to send it to you....shhhhhh, let me know! emoticon

    Mine is fairly new, but still slow. I need to do some serious cleaning out on it.

    I also have Windows XP, but I also have Norton Security and all my scans are clean. I believe I need additional memory, which will cost about $200. Might as well bit the bullet, I depend on my computer for so many things, shopping, paying bills, etc. But it has been sooooo frustrating to deal with lately!!

    My computer too has been really slow. I am unsure if it is a virus or if I need a new one. I got my tower in 2006 and am using Windows XP. I am thinking of getting someone to have a look at my system to see if they can figure out what it might be and then I will act accordingly.

    Oh boy! Too much patience required for that slowness! Hope you can fix the problem or afford to get a new one - good luck! emoticon

    Sounds like a virus. Also it's funny about speed. I am attached to the IT department (non technical) and my "users" complain about 5 seconds!

    My laptop apparently got a virus, so it is slow and the wheels will not even come up. Thank goodness it did not effect my desk top, but will have to take it down to someone & have them clean up the virus without losing all my other information. I hate having to get a new one and trying to get all the information installed.

    That is way to slow,I only have the lowest high speed and my pc is not that slow,is it time for a cleanup? Or retiring your pc for a newer model that is faster.Hope things speed up soon for you,life is to short.Best to you!

    I deal with this every day - and there is NO way I can afford to get it fixed or replaced. I thank God every day that I can access it at all. I do Coach Nichole's desk workout waiting for pages to open....

    Been there, done all that, got the t-shirt and everything. This too shall pass and you will come into the light, only to be frustrated by all the ads.

    Good luck emoticon emoticon

    I can remember when that was lightening fast! But, now, it is way too slow to be useful. Time to upgrade!

    That is slow. I blame my pokey unit on the fact that the
    phone company has been working for 3 weeks getting
    fiber optic accessibility out to the rural areas. So they
    have been tinkering around and it takes forever. You
    get to the point where you wonder if it will ever be
    the same as it was.
