I do not know why I keep having problems!!! :thumbsup: This morning when I got up, my laptop was loading REAL slow including the boot screen, even the sound on my computer is choppy. I am currently running in safe mode with Windows Defender, Malwarebytes, and Mcafee virus scan running. I have used CCleaner and ATFcleaner and used the defragmenter and the problem still persisits. I will try the chkdsk / program when I am finished scanning my computer to see if it is a hardrive problem. Can anyone please help me futher with this? I will ask my friend and the Computer Solution center on campus for help too.

Sincerely,

Myron Mason

If your computer seems to be slow, read Slow Computer/Browser? Check here first; it may not be malware. There are reasons for slowness besides malware - i.e. disk fragmentation, disk errors, corrupt system files, too many startup programs, unnecessary services running, not enough RAM, dirty hardware components, etc. As your system gets older it becomes filled with more files/programs and has a natural tendency to slow down so cleaning and regular maintenance is essential.

That usually means you don't have enough ram and you have too many programs running in the background and your free hard drive space is too low and you have too much data stored, all these should be fixed.

well the scan said my ram is fine it is 512 MB and I cannot increase it or my graphics since this is a laptop. I already turned off programs from running in the bakground, I already freed up my hardrive space too. So all of that should be fixed.

here's another guide for increasing system performance, it's rather rough and extreme but effective

especially for a low ram machine

not sure about the source tho
