My laptop has become slow. I have done all of the System Checks and all indicates Passed. I regularly run Norton and Malware checks. I went into Task Manager and disabled programs I don't want to run. Recently, I ran an sc /scannow and no problems were noted. I was going to go through some steps using the Virtual Assistant (I have used this before) and I get the message: 403 - Forbidden: Access is denied. You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.
Lately when I am using the laptop, it will just stop and goes to a blank screen and I have to close everything. It never did this before. Maybe needs more RAM? It only has 4GB. The laptop is not longer under warranty.
