Hi all,

Ive been noticing my PC has been running quite slowly recently and performed a SPECCY analysis on my system. On a separate forum I was told that the issue surrounding my PC's poor performance was because of my HDD.

Here are the results of the scan: click here advice on whats wrong with my drive and how to fix it would be much appreciated.

Kind regards,

What maintenance software do you run on your PC?

When last have you defragmented your HDD? How much space is left on the drive?

From what I see you have quite a few programs that run on start-up that sit in the background to perform updates, etc. You can stop the ones you don't use often or don't need to run automatically which should help speed things up.

The SMART status report from your Speccy is GOOD so why do you think its a HDD problem?
