  • Windows Vista puts up-to-date makes pc and slow down the browser issues any help?

    OK first turned off im not a computer genius or an irritable person. but I have two PCs, one runs windows vista that in recent years its got terribly slow with each update and in particular some of them it becomes a bit slower, I noticed. I would like to install the updates of the browser windows 7 and all this reallycan help speed that my old pc can run games online and pc itself can run faster but I need to install these make the updates. my browser and pc so slow it is literally an analysis sometimes or just stops. It does not help the games that are played in particular in the form of online browser. I'm really at a loss what to do. I completely erased the HDD and reset to factory settings that makes my pc running at a pace that is very nice but not fast enough for some games online that work 7. is there something that you have out there which can remove all glitched updates and only installs the updates that really are needed and will not clutter up my pc or do my pc slow as a snail again.  or a list of important updates only that you need just to move to 7 with duty to update ALL updates. When I deleted the hard drive at the factory, it runs great. then it is better in a few years. I don't want to end up with the same problem. again and again... or end up not being able to play my games online, because the software cannot be updated. When I tried to update my software back again once to a crawl even AFTER I had just wiped out the hard drive {not to mention I had to whipe it again to get the updates to do works back} so obviously, as I suspected it was the windows updates that are a malfunction of my pc. I have even higher speed dsl and it works like a charm on any other pc very well and runs on this pc as well when his shattered fine if not not not my net access is make my browser. I'm really at a loss here.  I hope someone out there can help publicize me updates anyone can help me and those that I should avoid because it's very frusterating. God bless you and thank you for your time. Sincerely of Becca

    Welcome to the Microsoft Answers site.

    Well first thing to note - if you have Windows Vista, it is a forum for Windows 7, then you might have more luck in the Vista forum.  But second, you noted that you have installed the SIMS 2 Deluxe and the Sims 2 Apartment life and the SIMS 3 pets.  There are no SIMS 3 pets yet (only SIMS 2 Pets).  So who could have thrown people.

    So now REALLY tell you putting a SIMS 3 disc in?  If so, you must install the program first and sometimes automatic execution does.  You can, however, open a Windows Explorer (press the Windows key, key with the Windows Logo on it, down and self-tapping letter E - keep the E or you'll have a whole bunch of windows to the top).

    Then go to your CD/DVD drive and double-click it.  It can start the car then run.  If not, then you can right click on the drive icon and select EXPLORER and then find the file named SETUP.  If you don't see what he, or see the files, then make sure you have a valid PC version of the game and do not have a MAC version (my kids have committed this error several times while getting the library software).

    See if none of this helps and then after return. Bob Larson Access MVP

    Depends on hardware configuration required on later operating systems, and also find out if the manufacturer of the laptop computer is supported and provides drivers for operating systems later as to whether it is possible or feasible to upgrade or not.
