My computer has been really slow for about three months?

I have had my Dell Inspiron 1501 for about three years and has been really slow here lately, I have had it fixed a couple of times. Yet, it is still being very slow. Also when I start my computer it tells me that it can not read my battery, and to press any key. Another thing it is having a hard time charging as well. Is there something that they have messed up on it or is it something I have done.?

Is this a good question?

There are lots of little things that slow down a computer, mostly it is programs that are running, but day to day clutter can slow your computer down too.

A good thing to try is to download a good program like Ccleaner or Reginout. I personally Use Reginout because i don't believe on free products.

It will analyze your computer, and clean up all that it can safely clean, inducing your registry.

It works well, and is 100% reliable.
