Hey all. Lately my computer seems to be lagging quite a lot. Somtimes when i turn my pc off then on again it goes back to normal, but then after a while goes back to being laggy. Help from anyone who knows what to do would be greatly appreciated. :thumbsup:

:thumbsup: to BC :trumpet:

Have you considered it may be malware causing this or something else? Read this: Slow Computer?

Look at that page (Slow Computer?) and that should help you out - if it doesn't report back here :inlove:

(Oh yeah I almost forgot :flowers:, tell us if that page helped you :cool: )

How much free space on the C: partition?

Can you post some system info?

Open up the Task Manager, click the Processes Tab and see if you can identify any process that's using a lot of CPU (except for the System Idle Process).
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

Thanks for going through that article :thumbsup:

Also, was there anything you may have doesn't hat could have impacted on your computers performance? IE: Did you install a certain program before it got laggy?

Also, could we get your CPU? (I am assuming it is good since those specs of your Hard rive and RAM are decent :flowers: )
