Hi, got a PC running Win 7 32-bit, 4GB RAM and had just over 50 programs installed. 6 of the programs weren't used anymore so I un-installed them with Revo. I then re-booted and defragged the HD. Now the PC takes nearly 13 minutes to boot and nearly the same to close down. Thunderbird and Firefox now take over 10 minutes to open, Facebook freezes after a few scrolls down and will not close.....just get the message "not responding". Everything worked well and fairly fast before the un-installing....what should I now do? I have a dual boot with Windows and Debian, and soon I will be upgrading Windows to Win 7 64-bit. I will be off-line when using Windows ( most of my programs are 32-bit - Photoshop, Autocad, Sonar, Soundforge, etc., - and I hate Win 10), and for on-line I'll be using Thunderbird and Firefox in Debian. There are reasons why I cannot upgrade at the moment, so I just want to get Win 7 working as fast as it used to. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
