Slow performance

By Bull173312 ·
Computer has suddenly gotten very slow.
Mouse pointer is very very slow responding.
When typing IMs some letters will be omitted from text.
Pictures come up only partially and in blotches.
It could be coincidence but I noticed theses things after trying to install some printer software. (HP printer)
Thanks for any help you can offer.

Are you running any Virus Scan software? If you are then you should update it and do a scan on your system. Many times viruses will cause the computer to go very slow and perform abnormally.

You can also go to for a free online virus scan of your computer.

If you have not already, you should also run the defragmentation utility for the hard drive.

Go to HKey_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/microsoft/windows/currentversion/run
Delete any values on the right that refer to HP software. This is starting some type of monitoring software on your system every time you start up, & it's not needed.
