I know that kind of feeling you feel when it takes like 5 minutes to open just an app.
Well, this is another common computer problems people face in their daily lives.
The root cause is usually due to the duration of how long you have been operating the PC. A computer that is older than 2 years will experience this, regardless of their specifications.
FIND RESOURCE-HUNGRY PROGRAMS;
With your system full of programs, there will definitely be one or two programs that use lots of your resources, for instance, a ram.
To find out,
a) Open the Task Manager. You can right-click your taskbar and select the “Task Manager” option or press Ctrl+Shift+Escape to open it. On Windows 8, 8.1, and 10.
b) Click the “CPU,” “Memory,” and “Disk” headers to sort the list by the applications using the most resources. If any application is using too many resources, you might want to close it normally — if you can’t, select it here and click “End Task” to force it to close.
DISABLE STARTUP PROGRAMS;
Autostart programs during system startup can be the major reason why your PC is slowing down.
On Windows 8, 8.1, and 10, there’s now a startup manager in the Task Manager you can use to manage your startup programs.
Right-click the taskbar and select “Task Manager” or press Ctrl+Shift+Escape to launch it. Click over to the Startup tab and disable startup applications you don’t need.
Windows will helpfully tell you which applications slow down your startup process the most.
SCAN FOR MALWARE AND ADWARE;
Day-to-day usage of computers can make you accidentally catch malware and adware.
