My computer is extremley slow.

I do not understand much about computers, so I can't really explain\pinpoint what could have caused this slowness. I have my laptop for 3 years now and I have never taken it to the store to get it checked up\fixed. I have downloaded antiviruses, but recently my free trial has expired.


My brother said that perhaps someone here could be of help, so I thought it was worth it to make a thread. Thank you!

Suggestion - Have a look at the Startups page. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups/


Also, in the Download section there are free  Anti-malware, -spyware, -virusware... bunch of Good programs to find the solution.

Please provide more specific information on what you mean when you say the computer is slow.
Slow to boot up and get to your desktop? Slow to load the desktop? Slow browsing?
Anything else?

A good place to start trouble shooting is here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/87058/slow-computerbrowser-check-here-first;-it-may-not-be-malware/

Try the suggestions then report back here and let us know if things get better.
