    Windows 8 laptop is so slow but new!


    Hi Guys, I've had terrible performance from my Windows 8 laptop, so much so that I cannot watch youtube on one tab whilst using another tab to google search. What happens is a massive blurring of the audio and a slow down and freezing of the laptop. I have good specs on my laptop (6GB am) and know the performance is inadequate- someone please help! I have a screenshot of the Task Manager for help troubleshooting. Regards, Attachment 53404Attachment 53405

    Make sure that all your Windows Update are up to date.
    Consider updating to Windows 8.1
    Uncheck any programs starting up unnecessarily in the StartUp tab and what anti virus program are you using and how much RAM do you have.

    I have 6GB RAM and I use Kapersky. Even uninstalling the anti virus has no effect on the performance. To be honest, I don't want to upgrade to Windows 8.1- I did that once already but did a factory reset due to issues with the laptop- and it set everything back to Windows 8 again....

    How do you find out what is in the start up tab?

    Thanks

    So, is this problem common with Windows 8?

    Click the Start tab in Task Manager.
    What issues did you have when you went to Win 8.1, perhaps we may help you with them.
