    Need some help reviving an old PC


    Hi. My aunt asked me to give her laptop a once over because it wasn't 'working right'. Yeah, no kidding. Its slowed to an absolute crawl. Its been like that for a long time apparently, she just never bothered doing anything about it.

    I did the basics, uninstalled a lot of garbage, updated whatever I could, that sort of thing but it's still slow af. Not really sure haow to proceed. Any ideas what usually causes this sort of slowness? I thought maybe the AV but even jpegs take ove half a minute to open...

    Help. TIA.

    Windows 7
    Core i3
    4Gb

    :)

  2. Unlink an old android phone from my pc

    I go thru the suggested steps: Start - Settings - Phone - Unlink this PC.

    When I first open the "your phone" screen the old phone is listed. Not sure if the phone listed is suppose to be selectable or not, but my is not. When I select "Unlink this PC" the phone listed is removed. When I select "Add Phone" the old phone still
    shows. I have removed the old phone from my Microsoft Account. I have rebooted after unlink this pc but I still cannot remove my old phone.
