Why is my computer so slow?

Computers can seem to run slow for many reasons.  However, their are many things a user can try to determine the nature of the slowness and what factors are causing it.

Computers that are very old can be expected to seem slow next to a brand new system.  However, an older system can be optimized to perform to the best of its ability.

Here are a few common places to look for the reason your computer is slow:

  • Lack of Memory
  • Hard drive is too full
  • Hard drive is too fragmented
  • You have a Virus
  • You have some spyware that is slowing your system down
  • You have your settings up too high

I will elaborate on the above places in the future and give tips on how to determine if you have a problem.
