Default is my computer is running slow

I have an Asus and the task manager shows so many applications; a lot of them are ASUS. 31% of my memory is being used.

I don't know much about computer but I'm gradually learning.

How do I know which ones are necessary and which one's aren't? I don't see the disable option.

My computer is running slow even though I rarely download anything. I just have itunes, antivirus and firewall.



Processor: Intel ® Core i7 CPU @2.20GHz
Installed RAM: 8GB
System Operating: 64 bit

Maybe it's my internet? My desktop is fine though.

It's especially slow when watching videos like ESPN, youtube..etc. The player crashes often. My flash player is up to date.

When I'm surfing the web, there would a plug in error asking me if I want to stop the plug in.

Your computer probably has a lot of "bloatware" which was software installed by asus when you first got the computer. You can try deleting some of those programs and see if it speeds your computer up.

Another solution would be to check if all of your drivers are up to date, especially your graphics and network drivers. They are the most important and usually causes freezing and general unresponsiveness of the computer.
