I’ve yet to find a lag free PC so as it stands with what you wrote so far there’s nothing to fix yet.
That aside I find a lot of older PCs with cranky HDDs that cause issues. That or some other hardware issue. But here you didn’t tell enough.

Did you install Kali in a dual boot option with Windows, on another hard disk than Windows or by replacing Windows?
And what slows down: Kali or Windows?
I didn’t know there are wrong and right versions of Kali for 64-bit hardware. Where did you download it from, what version exactly and what other versions were available that you didn’t install?

So which version did you use?
by the master2 · about 2 years, 8 months ago
From what I can see there are 3 of them one titled Installer, the second Live and the last is called Net Installer.
How did you prepare your computer to install this distro?
What are the specifications for the computer you are using?
The list goes on and on but if oyu have Windows Installed and are using the Live Version it’s going to be very slow as it runs from a Optical Drive or Thumb Drive and the computer needs to access this slow drive for everythign related to the OS and this type of access is SLOW.
What you need to do is blow away any previous install of an OS and install Kali from scratch and install it to the Base Hard Drive ideally a Solid State Drive which is the fastest drive available but also very expensive so it all depends on what you have.
If you want to run this OS Virtually it’s going to be slow as it is running on top of your Base OS which I’m assuming is some form of Windows so the Base OS has to do it’s thing and then the Virtual OS only gets access after the base OS jas finished doing whatever it’s doing so the Kali OS is always running behind the Base OS and never has direct access tot he Hardware it always works through the Base OS and this really slows things down.
If you have installed it tot he computer itesel with no other OS running or installed was it a blank Drive or did you make it work on a Windows Partition? Linux Partitions are very different to Windows and normally need 3 different Partitions for it to work. If it’s not running on it’s native partition type it’s going to be slower than if it is running on what it was made to run on.
Also how was the drive partitioned if it’s running on it’s Native Partition? Partition Sizes are important and if you overrode the way it wanted to partition the drive you may have severly limited the available drive space which is causing it to slow down.
As for which to use that all depends on what oyu have available. Forget the Live Version and if you have a limited Internet Connection use the Installer version as this has all of the bits on it.
If oyu have a lot of available bandwidth and a decent speed internet you can use th Net Installer which just has the basic bits and downloads the rest from the Internet which may result in a better install or most of the drivers installed but it may also result in it not installing as the Net Installer may not have the necessary Ethernet Driver to make a internet connection to load the OS and it’s Drivers.

The installation requirements for Kali Linux will vary depending on what you would like to install and your setup
1. you can set up a basic secure shell server(SSH) with no desktop, using as little as 128MB of RAM and 2GB of disk space.
2. if you opt to install the default desktop and at least 2048 MB of RAM and 20 GB of disk space.
There are the following assumptions when installing Kali Linux:
Using the amd64 installer image.
