Computer running slow and programs hanging
  

Recently i have upgraded my windows XP to windows 7. Windows 7 is really an awesome application and i like it very much it is quiet faster than windows XP as well as windows vista. But to my surprise two weeks after upgrading my system it ran absolutely fine for about two weeks and then my computer became slow and some of my programs started hanging.

Before suggesting any solution to this problem i am willing to know the configuration of your system. Since you have upgraded from windows XP to windows 7. As far as i know the windows 7 is a 64 bit operating system and it requires resources greater than what is required by windows XP. For example it requires at least 1GB of RAM where as windows XP can continue to work on 2562 MB of RAM.

You may have problems with your registry. The register can control all aspects of your computer from the wallpaper to how your computer loads and runs programs. If you ever experience with fixing your computer, then touching the registry can cause further damage to your computer.

Remember that computer receives no slowing over time, slow is indicative of software problems, which then runs around the register of computer which is very easy to set and manage an online search that takes only a few seconds.

To improve the performance of your system you will have to upgrade your system hardware including RAM. Try to buy a new hard drive with minimum of 250 Gb hard disk space. 2 Gb of ram will be better so i would recommend you to install the same on your system as soon as possible. Hope that this will help your system to perform better.
