Re: how do I uninstall jaws from my windows 10 laptop?

See what your RAM use is.  I don’t know if it accounts or partly accounts for the slowdown or not.  You can see how much RAM is being used in the Windows Task Manager.  Those who use Windows 10 can tell you how to frind out.  I don’t use Windows 10 and the interface may not be the same as in Windows 7.

Have you checked to see what apps are running in the background?

With that little ram any extra app running that doesn’t need to be should be turned off at startup unless it needs to run for some reason.

An SSD could help you too.

By a few apps, I mean a few browser tabs, the mail app, the weather app and Messenger. You look at the task manager and you can  just see the system is taxed to above 80% or more in ram usage.

4 gigs isn’t really enough these days.

I hope you meant gHZ and not mHGZ processor lol.

Your 4GB of ram is probably the problem.

I have a Surface Pro first generation (which I’m writing on  to you right now),  and it really can’t handle more than a few apps running at a time with JAWS running.

It’s fine for basic tasks, but anything complex would not work well on this particular PC.

If your ram isn’t soldered onto the board, you might be able to upgrade the ram. However, knowing your processor speed would help. One other question. Do you have any idea if it’s a 64 bit or 32 bit of windows?

If I were you, and I did absolutely nothing else, I would  upgrade that ram past 4 gigabytes. Because 4 gig is a very small amount for Windows 10 with screen readers running. Unless you’re doing just very basic tasks.

Not off hand.  It's an HP, 4 Megahertz processor, with 4 gig of ram, not quite sure what exact type of ram it contains, origintally came with windows 8.0

No, my sighted cousin said that it was not this slow before he handed it over to me after the upgrade from 8.1 to windows 10.

I have a  question..

, was it always this slow?

Is it slow for others without the screen reader running?

I have a laptop that originally came with windows 8.1 and that my cousin upgraded to windows 10 when windows offered the free upgrade.

 

I have jaws and NVDA installed on the computer and I have had one member of this list remotely enter my system to help me configure thunderbird to be used as my email client.

 

I noticed after my cousin gave me my computer back, with the upgraded version of windows 10 on it  that it was slow, like someone reading braille by letter by letter, but after they read the first letter, they have to check their learning braille books for the next letter one by one, on and on until they have the complete word spelled out and then they move on to the next letter.  I can click con a link  or option in the various windows or what not and walk away from the computer for about 2 to 3 minutes and  I will hear the computer just starting to do what I want it to do.

 

even the person who helped me remotely said "man, your computer is exceedingly slow"  have you degragged the hard drive.  my answer:  yes, several times.

 

I have removed apps, programs, ect and to no avail.

 

so, I  have asked here on the list and have had some luck from gene and perhaps 2 or 3 other people with helpful suggestions or websites to look at.

 

my cousin who upgraded the computer from windows 8 to windows 10

said that it was probably the screen reading program that was slowing my system down.  So, I wish to do a test.  I wish to remove jaws  and run NVDA on it to test to see if jaws is the issue.  yes, I know, I know, why would the premier screen reading software company cause such a slow down on a system, but the whole "resetting" the computer to a "fresh copy of windows 10" did nothing to fix the issue, if I did it correctly via a webpage from the virge that gene had posted to the group. 

 

I do not wish to start a debate between members regarding resetting in windows 10 and restetting iin earlier versions as the word has ddifferent meanings in different versions of windows.

 

So, bottom of the line,  how do I remove a program from a windows 10 computer?

 

Thank you.

 

Regards,
