1 > My Computer acts sluggish, slow. My computer is even stalling in receiving messages – it has been in an idle position because it’s slow. I know I need to get a new computer soon. In the meantime, because you are the king of computers – can you suggest something I could do to speed things up? Right now it is trying to receive 69 messages and besides a bad ISP connection, too much mail. I have been on the phone for over 2 hours now with my internet, web server people. They said that because my junk mail and inbox was overloaded (too full), this was causing the emails to backup and not come through. They set me up with Mozilla Thunderbird email account so I am using this now (until I can clean out my other accounts)
As you know there are 2 ways to access your emails..
– One way is directly on your home pc..
– and the second one is at the remote server initially..
at leasy a few times what you may want to do is screen the email at the remote server first and next the screened mail you like let it come to your home pc.
Next I use at least 4 different emails..
-I use one my main contact one..
-I use one solely where I know that the people will send me junk mail..
-I use one for the close, personal persons, a confidential one
-I have one as a spare, for rare important contacts..
It also could be that your existing email software is corrupted.. reinstall it.. http://email.about.com/od/outlookexpresstroubles/qt/et_reinstall_oe.htm
2 How can I speed up or improve my Home PC Microsoft computer Performance overall
More free advice..
1 Slow computer… check your internet service and do see how fast it really is.. do a speed test – measure it.. see http://www.speedtest.net/ or http://www.internetfrog.com/mypc/speedtest/ or http://www.acanac.ca/speedtest/ and first make sure no other programs are running in the background..
Many Internet service providers really do not give you their full advertised, promised speed.. or they falsely slow down your speed, cap it during peak periods.. if that is the case phone and complain to them http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/05/18/on-how-to-deal-with-it/
2 Slow computer.. the number one reason the average person has about 300 virus on their computer still and no one program removes them all…. try this free program http://www.safer-networking.org/
3 Slow computer.. increase your memory on the motherboard http://www.pchardware.co.uk/install-computer-memory-ram.php

5 Slow computer.. add a larger and faster hard drive .. preferably an external one, they are almost the same price these days. http://computer.howstuffworks.com/adding-a-hard-drive.htm
6 Slow computer.. as for “Can I go into Perhaps into tools or do something so the speed is sufficient, could I get a program such as a TuneUp Utilities system optimzation utilities suite; In my own view all this mostly is a myth, it does snot really improve much, and it is not possible or practical at all.. for me this is mostly a rip off, many of the software that claims to fix it or it really tends to do you harm your computer rather as well if you do not know what you are doing.. so do use with caution.. Here you can try these free programs http://www.snapfiles.com/get/puranutils.html or http://www.snapfiles.com/get/comodocleaner.html or http://www.snapfiles.com/get/nirlauncher.html or http://www.snapfiles.com/get/freemiumsys.html or
but I would for sure Install a registry cleaner.. see http://www.freewarefiles.com/AML-Free-Registry-Cleaner_program_37067.html or http://www.snapfiles.com/get/eusingregistry.html
7 and maybe try this a PC Tweaker.. http://www.snapfiles.com/get/windowstweaker.html or http://www.snapfiles.com/get/mztweaker.html or
