Why is my computer slow

Every time I boot my computer on, it comes on just fine. Then I try to pull up a file in windows explorer or I try to go onto the internet and it just goes SUPER slow. Why is that? Do I need to install a SSD?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi @cedarj ,

What OS is installed in the PC?

How much RAM is installed in the PC?

Have you checked what programs may be started when you first boot the PC?

If Win 10 installed, right click on taskbar and select Task manager > Startup to view.

Google the programs that you don't recognize to see if they are necessary to be run at startup.

If Win 7 installed, type msconfig in search box on desktop.

Have you done a virus check or a malware check to see if malicious software is not hogging the memory etc?
