    I need advice for why my PC is so slow. I have anti-virus and i'm not getting any viruses or malware. Im not sure if it i the specs or another problem. I mainly use it for gaming and i'm barely managing to play games. Please respond. Thank you.

    The APU line from amd is NOT for gaming; it is a basic use processor ie running office, email, etc.
    You are never going to run games with the onchip video. If you really, really want to run a game, then at the very least you are going to have to install a real video card. Even then, it will not run modern games at high res.

    I agree with the above, however is it slower then normal for everything or just gaming. If everything, we can look at a few things.

    I agree with post #3.
    The processor and graphics in your computer does NOT have the speed and "horsepower" for quality gaming.

    We also don't know how well you maintain it and what's installed in it, so that can have a negative impact on speed and performance.
