Is your computer running slow?

Have you found that your computer has recently started running slow? If so, this could be for a number of reasons. If you have recently upgraded to Windows 10 then you may be lacking in memory to allow it to run along with any other programs you need. Windows 10 uses 2 GB of RAM for the 64 bit version meaning laptops that only have 2 GB of RAM will then have to reply on the hard disk drive space to run other programs.

If you have an anti virus installed on your PC the likely hood is that this will be running all the time and may take up another huge chunk of the RAM. You cannot do without this software but you may suffer with slow speeds and your computer locking up from time to time.

You do not have to run Windows 10, but if you want to then I would strongly recommend upgrading your RAM memory to as much as possibly to speed everything up.
