    Hi Everyone,

    Wow! feels good to be back on the forum after almost a hiatus. Anyway, i can see so many new and different usernames as Admin and moderators. Well guess that how it goes. Change, the only constant.

    Anyhow, so as the topic reads, i recently bought this Lenovo Laptop, primarily for web-surfing/ browsing purposes but inspite of that the system is too darn slow. Even listening to an audio file is a problem (stopping in between) when simultaneously done with chrome open.

    Please find attached the system configuration and let me know if anything else is required.

    Look forward to some help from the experts.
    Cheers!

    I happened to notice a post on this thread that apparently disappeared later. Anyway, the user asked me to run CCleaner 64 bit. Just for the record, i have that software and i use it but still the system is slow to an extent that when chrome/IE is open, bs player/vlc cannot play smoothly and other functionalities get slow too.

    well if your computer is that slow I think you have to look into other factors apart from Ccleaner. there could be only 3 area for this kind of slowness, check your task manager(resource monitor for performance) to see which program is slowing or eating up memory second use a tool to check your hard drive if is failing on you already(I use Disk info) the third one is overruled since you have almost 4GB of memory but you can also verify your memory usage and lastly it could be a virus(which you already know this forum can help with that) one of these areas should help you find the slowness!!!
