Re: computer slow after start up.


I know at least two male Vals in our little town of 6,000. They do exist just as there are male Ashley's or Taylor's, female Deryl's and so on.
And then of course we must never forget the boy named Sue *smile*

I can count on one finger the number of Val (men) I know of--you got it, Val Kilmer!

Ok, just keep smiling! Just an older lady! [The only problem is, I don't act like a lady should!}

Hi i'm a female, and very new to Jaws and computing, so wouldn't like
to tackle this on my own.

For a start, wouldn't know wherre to start!


Thanks to each and everyone for the time and trouble you all take.

Val.hink all you guys and gals have been wonderful in all the
assistance you give me, and wished you were nearer to me.

Hi Jonas,

I think the statement "it's easy to do" is very subjective and it's
not something I would ever tell somebody without first knowing what
their abilities are.
Maybe from your point of view and level of knowledge it is easy to
do, but many of us on these lists are often above average in
knowledge and experience. You do, however, need to ask people like
Val at what level they are. I don't know Val, but from reading his
messages and some of the replies he received I gather that he is in
Scottland and that he is an older gentleman who may not necessarily
have been a computer user or at least not a blind computer user for
that long. If this is the case then installing Windows from scratch
or even making the installation media might be beyond his abilities.
Personally I find it quite easy as well and as a Jaws user for 29
years NVDA just does not cut it and I might as well use Narrator if I need to do an installation without sighted help.
In any case, if the speed of Val's laptop is not satisfactory and too
slow for what he is willing to put up with then he will probably need
to ask somebody else to help him with this or, if that is not
possible, he may have to go to a store where somebody can do it for
him and hopefully without charging an arm and a leg.

What i really need, is someone who is experienced in these things, as
i'm only a novis, and have never attempted anything as big!

Some laptop manufacturers install a lot of what's generally known as
bloatware. Only way to really get rid of this and start with a clean
slate is to make a Windows 10 USB installation stick, make sure you
have all your data on an external drive or in the cloud and then
reinstall Windows 10 from scratch including deleting all partitions,
re-partitioning and formatting the hard drive or SSD.
Once you are done reinstall Jaws and instal the applications you want.

! I have now removed eset Nov32, but there are still quite a few
things on here which i'd be frightened to remove. One of them is
Levono settings, another is Levono companion. I've also got office
365, and some others which were on when i got the computer.

I have tried N.v.d.a, and this seems to be a bit quicker at starting
up than Jaws.Hi
