My Computer Has Slowed Down!

Last Update: October 10, 2021

Does anyone know how to fix a computer that has slowed down?

I'm trying to create some landing pages with Thrive Architect and it is taking ages for the page to load every time I press a key.

Any help will be appreciated - Thanks!

Have you downloaded a bunch of "free software"?

That software is never free. It's got loads of other programs attached that can do exactly this. They spy on you, affect your search results, change the ads that you see, and so many other nasty things. That's why it's always worth paying for software you want to use.

If you've got any on there, purge it as soon as possible. Even more may be hidden in your hard drive, so you may have to get it professionally scanned.

Yes, I've got free software...As I'm not tech savvy and don't want to break anything, I'm taking my computer over to where I bought it for them to check it over.

Thanks for your feedback though...

Make sure to tell them that. Hopefully they have someone on staff who is good at finding all the hidden stuff that could be on your hard drive.

Hey Stella, first, if you're using Chrome, try Firefox or Edge and compare results. If anything changes like a noticeable speed change, clear your browser cache and try again. If still nothing changes, you might have a sneaky virus hanging around like Zoopie suggested. Do a virus scan and try again. Oh and another thing, do your testing with no other tabs open. Chrome lags big time with multiple tabs open. These are basic steps but hopefully you'll get good results.

Sounds like a virus. What virus protection do you have. Run a scan. And do what Jeff said as well. Good luck.

Run a scan? It looks like I'm taking my computer back to where I bought it for them to look it over.

I'm not sure, but have you cleared your cache, Stella?
