I hane an Acer Aspire V3-571G with i7 3610qm and 4 gb ram and GT 640m. For quite some time (months by now), this laptop is very slow. At startup, i hear the win7 start sound after 15 secs i am in desktop, it takes from 5 to 30 seconds for the icons to appear, navigating and responsivnes is slow...
I gave it a scan.. no viruses. Mybe cuz i use a bad antivirus? Windows Security Essentials? I tried disk defrag... I close all background application.. I dont know what to do.
I feel like my old laptop with intel pentinum dual core is faster then this...
Run a virus and spyware scan with another program, very often just one product won't fix or find everything. Install and run Malwarebytes (you only need the free version) and also download the Avira Antivir rescue boot disk and run that. Just boot off the disk and run the scan.
Guys, i tried Malwarebytes and it found 94 viruses. Its faster now, but do u have any more tips for speeding it up?
A few things,
Unistal any useless taskbars from your web browser.
Delete any files you dont use anymore.
Unistal any software or anything that you do not use or seems suspicious.
The virus were the major problem, and it seems they are fixed.
Keep a good antivirus like Avast, and scan with MB maybe once a month or every two weeks, and you should not get any big virus often.
