I have a Toshiba Z830 ultrabook, Intel Core i5, DDR3 6gb. When I download a long file my computer becomes sluggish and slow to react to anything I may do. I tried changing the power settings to High Performance but that hasn't helped at all. When I had Windows 7 installed on my laptop its performance was not degraded while downloading a large file.

Uninstall third party installed antivirus and firewall programs to see issue resolved.  Try different web browser to download a file.  Ask for malware infection check at Am I infected? What do I do? forum. You can follow my instructions at my tutorial thread to boost performance of Windows OS url link for the tutorial thread is below.
