First, your software should be perfect:
  • Remove all Viruses (Malwarebytes, JRT etc)
  • Remove all spyware
  • Remove all unnecessary software and files
  • Clean your PC (use CCleaner for example)
  • Update Windows
  • Update Software
  • Update drivers
  • Clean your register (CCleaner, Wise Registry Cleaner etc.)
  • Defrag your register (Wise)
Now restart your laptop and check your hardware
  • Defrag your harddrive (Defrag)
  • Check if you have sufficient disk space left
  • Check if you have sufficient memory (RAM). You should at least have 4GB, 6GB is better.

Thanks, 2 viruses found. How do I know how much RAM I have?

My Computer > right-click and choose Properties. In the System Properties window, the system will list the total Installed memory (RAM). You can also see it in the top of the CCleaner window if you have that prog.

What does it say?

You can usually upgrade your RAM. Upgrading is usually easy; finding the right memory stick requires some homework, but is not too difficult either. Here's some help:
