Help for an old Laptop


Recommended Posts

Looking to try to help an old laptop. Question: Does reducing the number of processes running help performance overall?

Task Manager shows 65 processes running which seems high for basic Internet browsing and occasional email.

Hi; What are the pc specs and what version of windows do you have running?

65 sounds fairly reasonable but there maybe some background stuff we could turn off.


If it's just for internet and email it might be worth looking at a Linux install - Mint Lite is good for old laptops.
