Lately I’ve been using my desktop computer more often. We got our Laptop two years ago and I let myself fall into the habit of using the notebook pretty much 100% of the time, however lately my laptop has been slowing down and it’s becoming frustrating to work on it.
My desktop computer on the other hand is nice and fast! We did a memory upgrade last year and well I guess the computer chip is faster than the laptops as well even though the Desktop computer was purchased in 2004. You’d think it would be the other way around with the laptop being faster … not in this case!
The main reason I had started using the desktop computer more often lately is because I purchased some programs that don’t seem to work on the laptop. I have something wrong with my .net framework installations on the laptop. They’re installed for programs that need them, but the programs won’t work, so there’s got to e some corrupted files or something else going on.
I guess I’ll have to completely remove all the .net framework installations, clean the computer up with a net framework cleanup program that I downloaded a while ago (through Microsoft) and re-install. I’m just worried that some programs will crash badly when I remove the installations and then I’ll have even more trouble.
So for now I’ll just have to use the software that I purchased recently only on the desktop!
I am enjoying working on my old computer again though. As I said earlier it’s so much faster than the Laptop. Even blogs and websites I visit seems to load faster. Now if I could only get my laptop working close to the desktops speed I’d be happy.
Does your computer make you frustrated with it loads programs or websites slowly?
