When i got it back in February it was snappy with everything but now it is starting to stutter on tasks that it should never stutter on like opening the right click menu within Windows Explorer to make a new folder or launching a game through Uplay or loading webpages. Is wear and tear really happening this fast?
Insufficient RAM and a lot of running applications . Defrag your hdd . Use CCleaner .Delete the content of this folder- C:\users\admin\ AppData\Local\Temp (admin is the user here) . Turn off some background applications . Scan for viruses and malware . Try the Balanced power plan and make sure max processor state is 100% (current power plan)
