Answers :

Well, unfortunately, as time goes on with any computer the hard drive accumulates gunk from mostly new programs and the internet. There are more start up things going on in the background, more spyware and malware that you can't see, you probably have a virus somewhere, and there's so many indexes and so much data fragmentation that it becomes slower than slow. All in all, it's your hard-drive's fault, nothing else on the lappy is to really blame.
\015\012
\015\012If you have a rundll error, then that could be being caused if the file was removed by another program (most programs share .dll files.) during an uninstall, or for possible registry or even hard disk sector errors.
\015\012
\015\012There's a few things I can suggest as more or less temporary fixes if the hard drive (physically) is not the problem.
\015\0121) Get something like AVG free (google it) and run a virus scan, along with getting Lavasoft Ad-Aware (which is also free and removes malware gunk). Also a program called Spybot, again free, will allow you to make changes to windows start up fairly easily. You can use that to turn off stuff that well, you never use (just don't turn off stuff with anything saying windows or system or you'll run into *very fixable* issues :P )
\015\012
\015\0122) Another issue is Free disk space, this is important for defragmenting, bad sectors, page files, and seek times (so it need not plow through a bunch of addresses to get to a file you want) The advantage of free space is most noticable at 25% free, but is best (though not as noticeable) at 70%, by that point it doesn't get better. Here's how to do it.
\015\0122 a) Remove extra stuff, (if you're running XP) go to start, accessories, system tools, disk cleanup. And remove all the **** that's there. Also be sure to go a few tabs over (top of the window) and delete all the restore points (don't worry, it won't delete your very last one), this frees up a huge amount of space taken by windows to make disk images.
\015\0122 b) DEFRAG, it is important to do this if you never have before. Over time your hard drive begins looking like a horrible game of tetris, fix it up by going to (if you are running XP) start, accessories, system tools and disk defragmenter. This will give you a bit more free space while making your hard drive more organized, and a fair bit faster (I'd say 2-15% ranging).
\015\012
\015\0122 c) Simply put stuff you don't use onto backup hard drives (where free space matters very little as opposed to the main drive of the computer) or delete it if it's never used. Games especially take up tons of free space, and since their files are typically loaded into ram and the pagefile anyways....it wouldn't be bad to move them to externals.
\015\012
\015\0122 d) google Pagefile defrag, and you'll find a handy free utility for defragmenting the pagefile (since the normal defragmenter doesn't do it since it's actually using the pagefile for most of it's work). Helps organize.
\015\012
\015\012The permanent solution for this though.....unfortunately, is to back up ALL your important data, format your hard-drive, and re-install your operating system. Starting from scratch is the permanent way to do this. However....
\015\012
\015\012NOW, if your hard drive IS a problem, then we're going to have to do some other things.
\015\012If doing all of the above (Except the reinstall the OS part) didn't seem to do anything, then your hard-drive might be having some troubles (especially if it's making odd noises.) To test to see if it IS the hard drive, you need to go into your diagnostics. Usually pressing the Fn Key and the power key at the same time when the lappys been off for a while will get you there, just follow it's instructions to test your harddrive sectors for read write issues (known as bad sectors) if there are some....
\015\012
\015\012The permanent solution, Get a new hard drive from your manufactuer. You can clone the hard drive using Norton Ghost (not free....) or another free application (just search cloning free into google), and that will give you an exact copy of what you have on the old hard drive to the new one.
\015\012
\015\012The temporary solution (which I'm currently doing :P ) is to go into my computer, right click on your hard drive, click properties, go to tools, and run the scandisk application. Set it to automatically fix errors, and then when it asks you to reboot the lappy do so.
\015\012This will go and check your hard drive for bad sectors, then it will 'try' to read the data on one, and put it onto a new sector that's free (which is why free space is so important with bad sectors.) then it will mark the bad sector as unuseable, and after the procedure the lappy will reboot, and should work much better.
\015\012
\015\012This can fix a lot of troubles....for some time, until the problems happen again (which knowing hard drives they will) and it can't be done constantly because eventually the drive is just on the brink of utter doom
\015\012
\015\012Only proper cooling, or a new hard drive, can solve this kind of issue for good.
\015\012
\015\012This was a long one :P But hope it helped.
\015\012Stay spicy, and happy lappying!! :)
