I have noticed after a few weeks my computer is running slower than before. So, I checked my internet speed. When I would it check before, it used to show approximately 96-99 megabytes of internet speed. But, in the last couple of weeks, it now consistently shows approximately 48-52 megabytes.
I had my provider check the system, and the system shows (with the techs computer) 101 megabytes. So the problem is with my computer, and not my provider or modem. I have run sfs/scannow, and it showed no integrity violations. I also ran chkdsk, twice, and when the program finished, it seemed everything was OK with that procedure? Frankly not sure if there was a problem with chkdsk it would say something or not. But, nonetheless it didn't show any error messages, and allowed my computer to restart. Frankly, I have run that program before hand, and it really didn't do anything to help performance of my computer. But, when I ran it this time, it's duration was about 20 minutes, where as before, it took for ever to complete? So I'm curious about that. But, I guess is it what it is?
I haven't added any programs to my computer or haven't done anything in the last few weeks to seem to warrant my computers new found slowness.
Does anyone have any suggestions, as to what may be going on? My expertise level with computers is not that of a wizard. So, please bear that in mind with your helpful comments. Thank you!
