How do I check what is slowing down my computer?

1. Check your computer’s disk usage: Press to open the Task Manager and look at the Performance tab. This will show you the percentage of disk usage. If it is consistently high, your computer may be running slowly.

2. Check your computer’s RAM usage: After opening the Task Manager, click on the Performance tab and select Memory. This should show you the amount of RAM being used and the amount of RAM available. If your RAM is almost full, your computer may be running slowly.

3. Check for malware: Malware is a common cause of computer slowdowns. It can slow your computer down by using up your system resources or stealing data from your device. Use a reputable antivirus program to scan your device for any malicious software.

4. Check the startup programs: Too many programs running on startup can slow down your computer. Press to open the Task Manager and click on the Startup tab. Go through the list and disable any programs that are not necessary.

5. Disable visual effects: Visual effects can take up system resources and slow down your computer. To disable the visual effects, go to the Control Panel > System > Advanced System Settings> Performance Settings > Visual Effects. Select “Adjust for best performance”.
