Possibly the greatest factor to a badly performing computer is malware.
Stage 1. Revise the definitions of your anti virus and operate a complete scan of your drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems.

Step Two. You’ve recently downloaded an application, and if the sluggishness is unexpected, the issue might dwell there. Check this by fully removing it.

Step 4. Review apps that self-launch on startup. You computer may become a arena for your attention. Many programs, for instance, install a fast-launch feature that enables them to be opened quickly; other programs will contain an automatic update feature that requires them to be running in the background. Each of these decreases your launching Windows and each needs a little bit of assets while your computer is running.
