Hello- I need some help- I have an older computer- not ancient but old. Really trying to not toss it. The cursor, and some programs have been lagging badly and I can not seem to find the problem.
long sotry short- all temp files gone, several anti virus programs and scans say it is good, recently cleaned up all useless programs and attempted to disable a lot of the unused services. Still have the lag. Any ideas?

Could you got to and get us the specs? go to http://www.piriform.com/speccy get us the specs?

Can you use a crtl shift esc and look to see how much ram you are using in taskmanager and how many processes you are using?

System is a little older but it should run most basic programs. What programs are you having issues with?
Are you having this issue in safe mode?
Open taskmanager and see how max out your cpu and ram is idle and while opening programs.
