ASUS Laptop Runs Very Slow Windows 10

"Hello, all. I bought a brand new ASUS laptop and it was working perfectly for about 2 weeks. I have installed numerous games and an antivirus. It was always running fine. I have made no changes recently and barely any browsing. While playing football manager, after about 30 mins, the laptop froze for perhaps a minute before seemingly working normally again.

Now it seems to intermittently go very slow and unresponsive. The laptop is almost unusable. How can I solve this slow performance ASUS laptop with Windows 10 OS? Thanks in advance."

Why Is ASUS Laptop Slow, Unresponsive or Freezing

Is your ASUS laptop running slow on Windows 10? Does it keep freezing when you surf the Internet or work on a project? All laptops run slow over time, an ASUS is no exception.

If the performance of your computer keeps dropping, for example, hang up more often, ran much slower than it used to, you'd better watch out. You must figure out why is your ASUS laptop so slow. The reasons could be as follows:

  • Virus or Malware
  • Slow on Startup
  • Running Out of Disk Space
  • Windows 10 Automatic update

Solutions to Speed up the ASUS Laptop

When you have known the reason, you can start to fix the ASUS Windows 10 slow issue as soon as possible. 

Solution 1. Remove the Virus or Malware

hen a Windows computer is caught by malicious viruses or programs, it will act up and slow down. The solution is also pretty straightforward, run an antivirus scan and remove any threats it might find.

Solution 2. Optimize the Startup

If your ASUS laptop or PC takes 60+ seconds to log in the screen, you'd better optimize it.

For Windows 7, Vista, or XP user:

Use this utility called MSConfig to tune up Windows startup. 

For Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 users:

Right-click on the taskbar, then select "Task Manager" > "Startup".

If a program shows Enabled, that means it will automatically run when you start up your ASUS laptop. Disable or uninstall those you don't need. The fewer Enabled items you have, the faster your PC will boot up.
