    PC is slow, found fix but only for short time period


    Hello,

    So i have a problem that my pc is very slow in almost all situations. I found a fix, but it works for short time period.
    So the fix is freeing up ram space with advanced system care program, but it only works for a while. I need help.

    Are your specs for "My Computer" accurate, specifically 8GB GoodRAM DDR4 2400MHz? Debugging memory consumption issues is difficult and time consuming, so I'll leave that to the real experts (@zinou, @essenbe). Might you be open to throwing more RAM resources at your system? If so, you might want to consider upgrading to 16 MB or more RAM on your PC. Not that expensive and will definitely improve runtime/memory availability characteristics. Looks like you could insert 2x8 GB (16 GB total: ~$130) or 2x16 GB (32 GB total, what I run on my top-end rigs; ~$180) for not too much expense.
    HTH,

    Freeing up ram utilities are pointless. 8GB is more than enough for general tasks. If you are barely doing anything and your RAM is full it means your OS is bloated. A RAM freeing up utility won't solve the problem. Try to debloat your OS. Open the Task Manager and see which process is taking the most memory.

    Either bloated or a "memory leak" somewhere and that usually doesn't show up in Task manager.

    Your PC should be fast in almost all situations. Only thing to add is SSD.

    Check for possible infections (coinminers). Run ADWcleaner and Malwarebytes, and edit your hosts file:
