I've had my laptop for about a year now, its specifications are as follows:
- Intel Core i5 processor
- 4 GB memory
- 640 GB HDD
- 2.26 GHz
- 1 GB Graphics
- Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1
It used to be fast, for example when switching on the laptop it would start and I would immediately be able to play music without it stalling or something. But now it does, it's not a big problem, it's just frustrating sometimes. I would start up my laptop, then open up my windows player but will take time for music to play. It's as if it freezes for a minute or two before commencing to play that song or video from my files.
I bought an Avast anti-virus last year and it's always up to date, so I hope it's not because of a virus or other malicious software that might have made their way to my laptop.
So my question is, is it normal for laptops with that high spec to be slow and freeze sometimes?
