Hi. I have an older computer. It's runs well enough for what I use it for. However, most times when it wakes from sleep, it runs extremely slow. It takes many seconds for things that normally take less than a second. Can anyone point me in the right direction so I can start troubleshooting this issue?

 

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Jason

If you think this is Malware related you should open a topic in the Virus, Spyware, Malware removal forum here.

If you think it is related to the age or the computer, that is, software or maybe hardware then you should open a topic in the Operating Systems forum appropriate for your machines OS, that is, Windows XP or Windows 7 etc.

That's the problem.

 I have no idea why it's doing it. I don't think it has to do with the age of the computer and I always do virus and malware scans. So, I'm back to asking for ideas of what to check.

You still need to go to the appropriate forum.

 

Please refer to my post. In particular this part:
 

" you should open a topic in the Operating Systems forum appropriate for your machines OS, that is, Windows XP or Windows 7 etc."

That is, start a topic in the forum that answers questions about the Operating System your machine has.

Fine. I did that. Even though I don't know that is an issue with the OS.

It's not that it might or might not be an issue with the OS. It's that the techs need to know what OS it is. Otherwise they don't know how to approach the problem. :)

Can someone end/remove this thread? The conversation has been moved elsewhere.
