My Tablet is extremely slow

When I first got my tablet it was fine. I downloaded a few games, some other apps and an antivirus app. But over the past few weeks it has become extremely slow and not okay. Whenever I'm done charging it I can barely get the lock screen open because the lag is so extreme. Sometimes I can barely type, sometimes I can barely open apps. And I did download an antivirus app called SecurityMaster to keep this from happening. But it says that I have no viruses. It sometimes gives me notifications on about the RAM and says to boost it to keep it from lagging. But I can barely do that sometimes the lag is so extreme. Any suggestions on what to do to fix this?

Hi @zzzach ,

Try uninstalling the A/V app and then check the performance of the tablet.

It may be using a lot of resources constantly checking for things that aren't there.

Try starting the tablet in "safe mode" to check its' performance.

Not sure re you tablet but press the Power button to shutdown the tablet and when the option screen appears press and HOLD the shutdown option. When a new option window appears select restart in safe mode.

If the performance in safe mode is OK then a downloaded app is the cause of the problem.

The trick is to find out which one.


Thanks jayeff

It turns out it was the antivirus app that was slowing everything down. I uninstalled it and everything runs much more smoothly now. Thanks you very much.
