I have a PC that is fairly old but still works. However, recently it has been running very slowly and having a hard time doing basic things like watching Youtube videos. I would have to let the video load and even then it would sometimes be choppy. Another issue is that it sometimes lags when opening menus (start menu; right click, etc.) and takes forever to open some programs like MS Word, Photoshop.
My question is would it be worth it to upgrade the RAM or should I just get a new PC all together?
I have done all types of scans from virus/malware to cleaning using CCleaner. I have defraged. Nothing seems to really work. Thanks in advance.
