I’ll click on the Applications folder to go there quickly and I’ll double click on Etrecheck to launch it. ok because we know this is safe. Start a test by clicking on the start Etrecheck button. Depending on how many files you have it as you might take a
few minutes to maybe twenty to complete the test. Let’s analyze my results. Yours will be different but the program does a great job ofexplaining what it finds good or bad there’s a lot of information here I’llhighlight the ones that have to do with the slow computer the first one is your computer’s memoryor RAM. If you don’t have enough to carry out what you’re asking your computer todo your computer will be sluggish we need to find out if RAM is a problemfirst and if it is if we could upgrade the amount of RAM we have
I’ll scroll down the report to memory usage section I can see that Google Chrome Helper is taking up a lot of my availablememory the next bit of data to help us is the virtual memory informationwhat we’re looking for is the amount of cached RAM to be less than the amount offree RAM and in my case it’s not what do we do with these two bits of info then theeasy fix would be to make sure you don’t have Google Chrome windows open that you don’t need so close any tabs and windows that you’re not using regularlySecond, I use Google Drive heavily on my desktop to sync my computer’s files witha hard drive in the cloud, Google Drive.
I could turn this service off and see ifthat reduces the amount of RAM Google Chrome Helper is using. If that didn’t workor even if it did I would then check to see if I could upgrade the total amount ofRAM I have in my computer RAM is fairly inexpensive and easy to install for lessthan $100 I might be able to get more RAM and solve my problem. To checkand see if I can add more RAM handy link at the top of this report I can see thatI have 8 gigabytes of RAM and that’s all my laptop can handle so adding more RAM isn’t an option for me. I’ll close all open chrome windows I’m not
using and see if my computer becomes faster, if it doesn’t I try to disable my Google Drive syncing to see if that helps speedup my computer there’s one more quick solution to help speed up your computerif your issue is your browser that we’ll cover shortly. The next important piece of information in diagnosing a slow computer is the top processes by CPU. If you don’t need aprogram running that is go ahead and quit that program.
