There could be a number of reasons why your laptop is running slowly. If you have the internet, then the chances are that your laptop may have picked up a virus. It is always a good idea to install some anti-virus software onto your computer before you access the internet. Anti-virus packages will warn you every time there is a risk on your computer. They will also do scans for viruses every so often.

Another reason could be if you are running too many programs at the same time. Try shutting down some programs and see if that helps.

If it is your internet that is running slow and you have a wireless network set up, then it could be because the signal strength is slow. If you have a router, try placing it somewhere more central for a better signal.

Your laptop may also be lacking the sufficient amount of memory to run a certain amount of programs. Try installing some more memory onto the laptop.
