And it didn't reduce the number of running processes when you rebooted?

Closing firefox and photoshop should not have reduced your processes by >10. If you're running 50 processes and it is still sluggish, it might be your processor, or possibly a slow hard drive...

Windows 7 has a snipping tool that cuts a bit of your screen into a PNG or JPEG, quite easy to use. Start typing snipping into the start menu search and it should come up.

I would bring it back for another ..with Intel CPU ..

You should not have to deal with problems like this, specially with a new laptop ..
Do it ...while you can ..IMO...

If you have the install media for photoshop and you can do a clean windows install, your system would run much faster. Part of what is causing your problem is all the extra factory installed bloatware that came with your computer.. Most of the "features" that came with your laptop are nothing more than a new interface to a function that already exists in windows. The other part of your problem: photoshop loves lots of memory. The more the better. Whenever you have that running, everything else is going to be slower... Working with several images simultaneously or batch editing is best done on a much more powerful machine.

whats better an intel processor or an amd i dont wanna spend extra on a i3cpu because of the store im forced to get my pc from my old pc broke so best buy is giving me a new pc to replace my old one im not going to spend extra money on a pc with a more updated processor so they can screw me out my money later so without includeing the intel i3cpu which processor is better when it comes to intel and amd i plan on editing photos in photoshop playing a few game like fallout new vegas and starcraft2 and I also want to use it for making music

There's nothing wrong with AMD processors. In fact, according to the passmark cpu value chart, AMD pretty much dominates the top of the list for performance/value. Almost all of their processors are less expensive than an intel CPU of comparable performance on their benchmark. You just ended up with one of the slowest ones available. Intel, however, currently has the fastest available CPUs..

That said, if you can return your laptop, do so and when you look for a replacement, get detailed specs and research them all before spending any money. If you can't return it for a refund, get a clean windows 7 disk with no bloatware. First ask the vendor who sold you the laptop.. If they won't give you one, contact the manufacturer. It may be worth it to spend a little money if you have to buy a DVD, but most manufacturers will provide a clean install disk if you are persistent enough, though they sometimes charge a nominal fee for the DVD itself. The graphics card, while not the best one available, will help make up for the weak CPU if you do a clean install of windows and minimize the number of processes that are running.
