My computer is seriously dead slow! I've tried  ccleaner, ashampoo win optimizer, HP optimizer and AVG tuneup - all to no avail - AVG is my antivirus software (fully licenced)

Is 'Restoro' safe to use? it seems such a risk .... can you possibly help me?

 

Thank you

A case of deja vu as the only thing that has changed since your previous thread here is that you have got rid of McAfee and installed possibly the most resource hungry AV program that is out there, AVG and Norton being the two most renowned resource hogs.
 
You have not upgraded your RAM as was advised in that thread and your present AV is most likely what is using up almost all of your RAM.

Memory Usage 78 %

 

 

 

AVG is my antivirus software (fully licenced)

 

 

Sorry but you have wasted your money, Windows own AV Defender is one of the best that there is, it costs nothing once you have paid for Windows, it doesn't cause conflicts with Windows and it does not use up all of your RAM.

 

 

Question for you, has the RAM in this computer ever been changed, the CPU is limited to 2133MHz so shipping the computer with 3200MHz capable RAM would be most unusual.

Save your cash and stick to upgrading the notebook and getting rid of AVG, AIOs are basically a notebook MB placed in a screen then mounted vertically, you have nothing to gain really as you will just be spending your windfall on something that has very little to no upgrade path.
