Why is my computer running so slow?

This can simply be divided into 3 possible reasons.

  1. It is possible that you have the likes of viruses and spyware present on your computer, this constantly runs in the backgroud taking up you computer resourses.
  2. You may be expecting too much from your computer.  If you computer is a few years old and you have been out and bought some new software or hardware then simpy adding this may be just a little too much for your computer, slowing it down for other tasks like checking emails or using the Internet.
  3. The final posibility is lack of maintenance on your computer, just like your car needs to pay a visit to the garage to keep it running fuel efficient so your computer needs some routine maintenance.  See our section on Checkups to learn more about how we can help you to get the best out of your computer.
