My laptop is running slowly, what should I do?
It takes more than 5 minutes to boot the computer and applications run very slowly.
Check in Task manager > Startup to see what is starting when you first turn on your laptop and that are running in the background. The less programs, except for the ones you that you really need , the better. Also check for non Windows processes that you don't need.
If in doubt, just disable them do not delete them. Also if you're not sure what they are, "Google' them to find out what they do.
If you have installed a 3rd party Anti Virus program (A/V) ensure that you have turned off Windows Defender. You don't need them competing and using up resources.
This may also be of interest to you.
What version of Windows are you running? Sounds like you may have a lot of programs running in the background. Try turning off some of your background programs by clicking start and typing msconfig in the search bar in the start menu and then press enter. Then click on the startup tab and disable all the programs that don't need to be running. You may need to restart your computer. It should help your computer start up quicker.
Also you may want to up your virtual memory as well. To do that click start, right click computer, click properties, click advanced system settings, under performance click settings, click the advanced tab, and click change for virtual memory, uncheck "Automatically manage paging file size for all drives", and then click custom. Enter a custom paging file size that is larger then what your computer is currently set to. This should also help your computer to run faster as virtual memory is like adding ram to your computer except it uses your hard drive as ram.

well, my laptop (Acer ES 11), bought two days ago, has 8GB RAM, I run Windows 10, and when I open about 10 tabs in Opera, everything becomes jumpy. I mean, I get that the answer is not to open so much tabs but still. what's the use of the computer if it doesn't allow me to do it? and still, I thought 8GB RAM is a lot. I don't play games nor any stuff like that. I deleted the stuff acer put at the beginning (their whole software which I found useless). is there any way to optimize funcionality of this computer?
