Hey, I am using a fairly old lenovo laptop, (7th gen core i3, 4 gb ram, Win 10 home). Can any one suggest me a good PC clean up or utility app which can make the system run at least a little smoother. There is a lot of delay, especially in opening apps and folder, which to be honest, was not there before. And No, I cannot format the computer :-\ . Any help is welcome. Thanks o)

The behavior that you describe can be a tell-tale sign of impending hard disk failure. Given the age of the device, this may be a real possibility. I would check that first.

If your drive is not the issue, look at what is auto-starting when you login. You may have some unnecessary applications auto-starting and consuming needed resources. Also, some anti-virus applications can be more invasive and resource hungry than others. There may be lighter options available.

and another off-topic question... This is the KDE forum, so please have your question at least be about something related to KDE software or applications


Currently running Kubuntu 20.10, Plasma 5.19.5, Frameworks 5.74.0, Qt 5.14.2, kernel 5.8.0-38, AMD RENOiR Graphics
FWIW: it is always useful to state the exact Plasma version and distribution when asking questions, makes it easier for us to help ...
