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.
