Anybody have a suggestion for getting a 5 year old laptop to run faster -- other than buy a new one? LOL! Thanks in advance.

Have you tried cleaning all programs out of your start up menu? Ran a disc clean up or a defrag? Those are good places to start. I hope these help. If you need any help, let me know.

Awesome! Great to hear daisybun. My old computer wouldn't go far enough back to do a system restore that would make a difference. I'm glad to hear you got it done!
