If your laptop is moving slowly, there are several things you can do:
- Check the power settings and change them to high power. High power will run the battery down more quickly, but will give you much better performance.
- Load and run Malwarebytes. Often malware will run in the background, slowing everything down.
- Remove unused software.
If this does not resolve the issue, it may be time to take your laptop to your local computer specialist.
