My PC is running slower and slower and it downloaded the PC Speed Maximizer program and ran a scan saying it has 2044 errors to correct. Is this a scan or a reliable program? I have run my Norton and ensured there are no problems there. I also checked my Mozilla program and made sure I had the latest version for my desktop.

Any program claming to clean your PC is a scam, maybe CCleaner (the only real pc cleaner) should help.

Also if your pc is slow check for malware.

You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:

PC Speed maximizer is crap registry cleaner that shows exaggerated error report (e.g. it treats items in browser cache as "problems"). You should uninstall it. Also, it comes with hijackers usually. Use CCleaner if you want, though there is little point of using them too much. In most cases it won't create noticeable speed improvement.

A slow computer is frustrating. Read this post for emergency tips to troubleshoot your slow computer.

The OS constantly reports running errors? Computer freezes or even gets crashed every now and then? Here in this post you will learn some emergency tips to speed up a slow PC and what is more important, get a plan for such issue.

What Cause a Slow Computer?

Frankly, many aspects can affect the computer running speed and performance. To make it clear and logic, I will simply present you with some common computer errors and the main reasons related in most cases in the list below.

If the computer is clean from any virus infections, common computer issues and corresponding reasons are here to stay: Retarding responding of the entire OS to your movements ---Lack of disk space (This scenario can result from junk files, excessive unnecessary programs installed, too many tasks processing at the same time, comparatively low configuration of the computer.)

Sudden OS freezing---too many tasks processing at the same time

Occasional OS errors and slow OS running--bloated registry files or registry errors or incompatible programs installed

OS crashed---serious system errors in terms of either software or hardware

Programs unable for normal use--- incompatibility or the program consuming overloading system resources

Black screen or blue screen---software errors or hardware errors

Data Corruption. Adware & Spyware. Not enough hard drive space. Left over programs and bad files. Missing Windows updates or outdated drivers. Computer is overheating. Unnecessary Startup Programs Running in the Background. Hard Disk Fragmented & in Need of Being Defragmented. Hard Disk Errors May Be Corrected with "Check Disk". Hard Disk Needing "Clean Up". Windows Registry Issues Viruses. Anti-Virus Security Programs. Your PC May Need More RAM. I suggest you a software solve all your problem of slow pc as mentioned above.
