I use a Dell Inspirion M5010 and the past few days, it would slow down significantly for no reason. I've run multiple virus tests and my laptop is clean. I've cleared things like temp files, and made sure that I defragmented my drive, etc. I would be able to just play games or even just browse around and watch videos no problem, and out of nowhere everything would either slow down or not load at all. I thought it was a wifi problem after I made sure my pc was clean by restarting my router and reconnecting but my pc would still be slow. After a while, it goes back to normal, but these lag spikes are very annoying. Does anybody know what the problem could be? I use TWC as my internet provider. I also use Firefox and Windows 7.
It doesn't happen at set times. It happens randomly at different times throughout the day. Sometimes it lasts a few minutes and sometimes almost 30. And like I said, it even happens when the only thing I have running is Firefox.
i understand your problem because I have seen the same situation then my friend suggest me to install Optimo Pro software.It is very beneficial for removing unnecessary junk files and invalid registry entries. You can also install it.
