What OS? Hardware? Internet hook up ? What (if any) security software installed. A little more information might help.
Ive spent the last few weeks trying to figure out why my pc has slowed down so much since it was purchased about 2 years ago. When i open nearly any program it takes about 5 seconds to even appear then sits at not responding until it manages to load properly. Gaming has been affected by this, as textures cannot load fast enough and cause massive FPS drops. Especially in SWTOR.
So far ive ruled out the following.
Hard drive errors/fragmenting
I could use help figuring out what is wrong, and perhaps some programs to test my hardware performance and see if something is causing the slow down. I take pretty good care of my PC and clean it regularly inside of Windows and inside the actual tower. Its starting to really bug me that i cant find a cause.
