Speeding Up a Slow Laptop

If your laptop is moving slowly, there are several things you can do:

  1. 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.
  2. Load and run Malwarebytes. Often malware will run in the background, slowing everything down.
  3. Remove unused software.

If this does not resolve the issue, it may be time to take your laptop to your local computer specialist.
