Windows 7: Windows 7 x64 slow and hangs, ctrl+alt+delete error

14 Oct 2015   #11

Windows 7 64bit

Sounds good. Do you guys have any other advice on speeding things up and optimizing? Can I get rid of any services listed there?

Also, I was having problems with Panda AV, now I want to find one that isn't too intrusive or heavy. Any advice on a good, free, AV program?
