Hey GameMaker,,,

Computers don't get Old and Tired and therefore run slower.
Your PC should be able to run Just as Fast Now, as it did when it was New!!! You did not mention how much RAM you have???

Systems get Cluttered Up, over time, and they generally retain all that Clutter, without proper periodic Cleaning. Also, people keep adding more and more Processes, Applications, and all sorts Automatic Update Processes, to everything, and eventually you just filled the 1 pound bag with 2 pounds of Crap!!!

Don't know what all you have, for software but, here is what I think you should do:

1) Download & Install CCleaner latest Copy, from here: http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

2) Download & Install MalwareBytes, from here: http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/...

3) Run CCleaner and allow it to Clean Everything;

4) Run the CCleaner's Registry-Cleaner, allow it to clean everything and make the suggested Registry backup;

5) Run MalwareBytes, Full-Scan, and allow it to delete everything it finds;

6) Update and Run MSE, Full-Scan, and delete anything it finds;

7) Run CCleaner again, and go into CCleaner---> Tools---> Startup. Then look at all the listed Start-Up Processes and Applications, and Disable Everything you are not using or that you don't want or need.

8) Re-Boot the System, and see and let us know where you are at???

Just my 2 cents...

TK...
