Question

My PC recently has been working really slow for some reason

By Will6181 ·
Hi TechRepublic members!
I have an issue with my PC. Hope you will give me an advice.
I've been using Asus laptop for about a year for ordinary stuff (Internet, word etc) Recently, I've noticed my PC to work slower than usual.
I've downloaded a file about at that time. Do you think this could be an issue?
I'm looking for good advice on how to make my PC work as it was before.
Thank you!

Slow working PC

Your pc is working slow, it might be because you are running many programs at a time, so they might have been using processing power and decreasing your PC's performance. You can check this by clicking the CPU, memory, and disk headers for sorting out those programs which have been running on your pc and how of your PC's resources they have been utilizing.
You can fix your slow computer by uninstalling unnecessary programs, or by deleting browsing history or installing SSD or if you think that the downloaded file is creating issue then you can consult with a security expert and can carry out website malware detection.

I've checked CPU and it was only my Chome as a running program

What do you mean by 'security expert'? Should I run my antivirus?
