Hello All,

I have been reading your stickies for a month or so. I found them so helpful that I decided to register so that I might express my gratitude.

I have no serious issues with my computer, but it has not ever been fast. I only bought it in January. It is a Toshiba Satellite (laptop) C655. The specs are...
intel b960 2.2ghz
4 gb RAM (plus readyboost 16gb class 6 sd card for my cache)
500gb hard drive
Win 7 home premium 64bit

I bought it for school (over the internet). Initially, I attributed the poor performance to buying a cheap computer and library wifi. After performing many of the steps in the various stickies (like de-crappifying a new computer) I found the speed to be better. I still blame library wife, budget processor, and low rpm laptop disc for some performance issues; however, it just is not as bad. In particular, using google chrome browser and uninstalling various toshiba apps has shortened boot time and load times.

Its funny, when I went to walmart, I thought I had found a real bargain. The last computer I paid for had a whopping 1gb hard drive, 3.5 floppy, and processor speed was measured in hundreds of mhz! How things have progressed.

Thanks Again,
Chris

Yeah, I read most of the stickies. My laptop is much quicker now. I had no idea that the factory software slowed her down so much. It's really nice to have a listing of utility downloads that do not contain malware.

Thanks again,
chris
