    Default Slow Computer....Urgh!

    Computer is running super slow. I ran updates, did a spyware/malware check, did a defrag, and used cc cleaner...minimal help.

    Anything else Im missing to stop the sluggish performance?

    What processes are running in the background? Open taskmanager and see what is using your RAM and CPU.

    Is there a numerical range that will help?

    If you're still slow, try this free one. ONLY check the top row of boxes (4), and security defense, and defrag. 6 boxes checked, total.
