About six months (roughly) ago my computer slowed down significantly and I started getting a lot of "virtual memory too low, please wait while Windows fixes" (obviously I haven't written down the exact message, but I'm guessing you get my point)
Programs take FOREVER to open. If I have Explorer and Outlook open, it takes a long time to switch from one application to the other. It takes FOREVER to open a new tab in explorer. . .
Well, it is slowly driving me insane. Please help me. I run McAfee and have run all the scans it offers. I also downloaded and ran Webroot Spysweeper and Advanced System Optimizer. Nothing major was found and it certainly didn't help.
My computer is a few years old, is it just out of date? Do I need to update memory? RAM? What? (PS- those words "memory" and "RAM" etc. . . mean little to me other than I know the computer needs them. . . )
Thank you so much for your valuable time.
