    Hi, you need admin rights. Right click the Command Prompt icon and select Run as Administrator. After that follow the instruction above!

    Hi Jessica,
    The best way to speed up a Windows OS is to uninstall junk from it. Go to the section where you can uninstall programs and Windows features and uninstall the ones which are useless to you.

    Another way is to empty your Internet cache and those files left by old programs. A good application for this is ccleaner

    Also, visit my freeware section (http://www.webtlk.com/tag/freeware/) and look for utilities to speed up your PC.

    By the way, a good trick to make your machine faster is to turn off Windows Aero theme and defrag (again, visit the freeware section) your Windows regularly.
