Hi,
 
First thing you should do is to troubleshoot your software first. Install antivirus and scan your computer on errors, 
remove them if it is not necessary files. Heal those important files if not then put in the vault or freeze it, so it would 
no longer spread. Clean your cookies and also your Internet history remove all unnecessary files from the beginning of time. And lastly, reinstall your Operating System if it's not working maybe you have many corrupted files in your operating system. Second is to check with your hardware if it still accommodate your hardware part to your application. Your applications are new and your hardware are old. If your computer is old then you should stick what's the old application don't install new application which your hardware cannot supported it.
 
Thanks,

So you have several computers and all of them started running slowly all of a sudden? Or what exactly is your situation. Are they networked together or are they stand alone? Some of the possible causes as to why your computers may be running slowly are because of the following reasons:

  • The computers may be running on low memory, and therefore you will need to upgrade the memory of the computers.
  • If the computers are on a network, then the server may be having problems and therefore affecting the running of the computers. Therefore you should troubleshoot and fix any problems with the server.
  • There might a virus infection that has spread though the computers on a network and therefore slowing down the processes of the computers.

You can just try restarting the computers first before you go ahead with other troubleshooting steps and see if they will be fine.

There are a number of reasons as to why a computer can run slow. The first and always to start with is to know exactly how much RAM (Random Access Memory) your computer has. There are different sizes available. The only thing is to know what model your computer uses and then buying the right size for your specific need.

Most motherboards will use DDR or DDR2 memory modules. But some latest models of motherboards are designed to use DD3 which is faster than its precedents. You have to open the inside of your computer/laptop to physically check what type of memory your motherboard uses. By the look of your eyes, its not easy to know whether you are using DDR or DDR2 memory until you align both DDR and DDR2 alongside each other.

All the same there is free software available for download that extracts most of the system’s information and describes for you what you RAM type you need to upgrade your computer. Its available he (http://www.gtopala.com/#axzz2iKMFYKA0).

The other reason why your computer would run slow is because of viral infections. Run a full antivirus scan and clean any infected files.

Also, try a disk cleanup and disk defragmenter and your computer could speed up. Regards.
