Hey hows it going?
Been having some issues as of late with my laptop acting sluggish. I use Google Chrome, so at any given time I do have around 10 tabs open at once, but Im not constantly using them. A couple tabs will be 2 different email accounts, so its not like every tab is using large bits of data, like Id guess YouTube, Twitter, or Facebook to be using since they are constantly refreshing.
Everything on my laptop is factory. I havent updated or improved anything.
As of right now, my hard drive is 685 GB. I have 573 GB free, so its not my computer being bogged down by a full hard drive.
I have the free AVG for virus protection, havent had an issue with virus's in years... that I know of
I also have and use CCleaner at least once every couple weeks.
Ill try to give some examples of the problem Im having. For instance before coming to this forum I was on Facebook. I was going to comment on a friends post, but I couldnt click anything on the page. I couldnt "Like" "Comment" or anything. Like nothing was clickable. Almost like it was an offline page or something.
Or sometimes just randomly the touch pad mouse becomes unresponsive. Like the computer is just froze and unresponsive for 7-10 secs, sometimes a tad longer.
Its not a huge deal, but something Id like to correct if possible.
Any idea on what the problem is or how I can fix it?
Im thinking about buying a cooling station off Amazon pretty soon, because I noticed it does get super hot. Especially on my lap or on my couch where it cant get air and breathe. Could this be causing laggyness due to overheating?
Also, I download and watch a lot of Youtube, Twitch, and such. Should I be concerned with AdWare or Malware?
Would disk defragging help?
