Performance Issues with my Sisters' Laptop

My sisters' Laptop has become really slow. I am running ESET Online Scanner to see if it detects any viruses. After that, I will run SFC. Any other suggestions?

Well, with no spec.'s for it its kind of hard to predict any performance increases. You can't go wrong following this tutorial.

Optimize Windows 7

Make sure you've ran all your malware/A.V. scans first of course. A fresh copy of Ccleaner and instructions on how to use it and how often couldn't hurt either.

Haha, well, after removing all that cr*p, you SHOULD see a pretty good increase! I would definetly run a scan from Malwarebytes and/or Superantispyware though. Just to be safe.

The specs are nearly identical to mine, except hers has a different graphics card.

The only difference is that hers has an Intel Pentium processor.

Run that sfc/scannow, and Malwarebytes/Superantispyware for sure. Then Ccleaner and instructions, then lesson on how not to click yes to everything when downloading.
