    Download and run Crucial's System Scanner.

    Take a screenshot of the results and attach it in your next post.

    If you can't get a screenshot, post the following information:
    • The type of RAM installed.
    • How much RAM is installed.
    • Total amount of RAM slots.
    • Number of RAM slots occupied.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    I also strongly suggest you uninstall PC Cleaner Pro and install one of these free alternatives:

    Microsoft Security Essentials

    Avira Antivirus

    Avast! Antivirus

    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    PC Cleaner Pro advertises a "registry optimizer" as a main selling point for their software, so below you will find TechSupportGuy's board-wide policy on such "registry cleaners."

    I am using MSE right now. I do not know exactly why PC cleaner pro showed up as my antivirus. I might do a cleaner manual uninstall to fix that.

    See attachment please,

    Use Revo Uninstaller to uninstall it.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    Download and install the Revo Uninstaller (Freeware) from here.

    Run Revo Uninstaller and select the program to remove (one at a time), and click the Uninstall icon.

    Now, select: Advanced
    [​IMG]

    Click Next, and follow the prompts.

    [​IMG]
    Click Select All, and Delete to remove all Registry items, folders and files listed by Revo.

    If asked to restart the computer, then, do so.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    Order 2 of ->THESE<- if your system is a laptop.

    Order 2 of ->THESE<- if your system is a desktop.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    Installing these will max out your system's RAM to 8GB.

    At which point your graphics card, then processor will be your bottleneck for gaming.
