Slow PC

Causes of a slow Computer:

There are many factors that cause a slow responding computer. It may be overloaded with too many programs, even if you are just using the computer for basic functionality such as web browsing and email. There are a lot more services running in the background. An average new computer with no extra software has about 40 services running, and if you were to launch your internet browser then you would be adding an extra service to that figure. (Press alt+ctrl+delete to view processes).
When you purchase a computer they come with lots of trial programs such as McAfee antivirus, Norton online backup, games and programs. These can add on average 15 extra unnecessary processes to the computer.
