What should I do if my computer runs slowly after installing Windows 11?

1. Check your system for viruses and malware: First, make sure that your system is free from viruses and malware. Run a full scan with your trusted antivirus software and fix any issues it identifies.

2. Update all drivers: Outdated drivers can cause performance issues with Windows 11, so make sure all your drivers are up to date. Download the latest drivers from the manufacturer’s website.

3. Check your hard drive for errors: You can use Windows’ built-in tool to check your hard drive for errors and fix them if necessary. Open File Explorer, right-click on the drive you want to check, and select ‘Properties’. Click on the ‘Tools’ tab, then click ‘Check’ under Error-checking.

4. Clean up unnecessary files: Remove any unnecessary files, such as temporary files, log files, and duplicate files. Use a disk cleanup tool or use Windows’ Disk Cleanup tool (type ‘disk cleanup’ in the search box).

5. Manage startup programs: Some programs can slow down your computer’s startup process. Disable or uninstall any of these programs if you don’t need them.

6. Add more RAM: If your computer still runs slowly, you may need to add more RAM. Check your system documentation or contact the manufacturer to find out the maximum amount of RAM you can install.

7. Disable visual effects: Visual effects can decrease performance. To disable them, type ‘performance’ in the search box, select ‘Adjust the appearance and performance of Windows’, and select ‘Adjust for best performance’.
