    slowness in computer usage.

    Hi John,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I appreciate if you could answer a few questions to narrow down to the issue.

    • What is the make and model of the computer?

    • What makes you think that system is running slow? Is it when you are trying to run application?

    • Did you install any third party security application?
    From the screenshot that you have provided, I understood that it’s not the issue with the disk usage. The slowness might be due to the memory usage.

    As an initial troubleshooting step, I suggest you to run maintenance task and check if it helps.

    • Press Windows key + X from the desktop.

    • Select Control panel and Select System and Security.

    • Click on Troubleshoot common computer problems under System and maintenance.

    • Now Run maintenance task under
      System and security
    Hope the information helps. Let us know if you need further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thank you.

  5. That is a quite big ask! But here you go:

    For the most part, I can successfuly speed up my Acer computer which I had since 2012 use following methods:

    - do a thorough system cleaning

    I use CCleaner to clear up the trash and uninstal unnecessary apps and tools in the system. I believe developing a habit of cleaning trash on a regular basis is quite important for keeping the system light and fast.
    In addition to that, I remove all the unwanted files in C drive and avoid setting the C drive as the destination of various downloads.

    - keep drivers on the system up to date

    I use SnailDriver to scan and update the outdated drivers on the system. Outdated drivers can result into various issues on a computer which include a slowdown of the system performce, so I am always happy to see my drivers are up to date.

    Hope this helps!
