    I have an Hp Laptop - I always assumed it was sluggish because - the specs are not that Great - But it does its job.

    I have Avast Anti virus - what a Piece of Crap. so anyway I was watching Football today and my laptop starts acting weird chrome can't open.Windows becomes slow as hell.
    freezes alot - I manage to get it stable for a little bit and I start searching for a better anti virus. I figure the problem is malware,adware and spyware.

    So I downloaded Ad aware - because I read on an anti-virus forum its pretty good.

    Anyway I did a scan and it detected I had like 12 pieces of malware and I removed them.

    Holy Hell - Now my lap top is like 5 times Faster and internet is Epicly smooth.

    its very bizarre to me

    so if your laptop seems slow the problem might be malware like mine.

    I am sure others have had the same experience.
