Hi Margie, Welcome to Gethelp!

Below are steps for Windows users that can help speed up the computer or determine why the computer is running slow.

Reboot -   If your computer has not been rebooted recently, make sure to reboot it before following any of the steps below.

Background programs -

One of the most common reasons for a slow computer is programs running in the background. Remove or disable any startup programs that automatically start each time the computer boots.

Delete temp files -

As a computer runs programs, temporary files are stored on the hard drive. Deleting these temp files can help improve computer performance.

First, we suggest using the Windows Disk Cleanup utility to delete temporary files and other files no longer needed on the computer.

Free hard drive space -

Verify that there is at least 200-500MB of free hard drive space. This available space allows the computer to have room for the swap file to increase in size, as well as room for temporary files.

Scan for malware -

Today, adware, spyware and other malware is a big cause of many computer problems, including a slow computer. Use the free version of Malwarebytes to scan your computer for adware.
