Be careful when installing or updating applications that may install a toolbar by default unless you deselect the toolbar option. This may slow down the system.



Computer3 Check what programs are running in the background:

Some programs start automatically after the computer boots. These programs keep on interrupting the system’s functions. Uninstall or deselect the applications you don’t need at the time of working.

The temporary files and history should be deleted to allow your browser to function faster. Also, check how much RAM your system allows you, and upgrade it as most laptops run on not more than a 1 GB RAM.
