What are the reasons to system becomes slow? please give me right suggestions. i am unable to solve this problem. And is there any good tutorial videos for my problem please send the url link.

Systems usually slow down over time because the user installs programs that run constantly even when you aren't using them. If you look at the right side of the taskbar, you'll see icons for volume and probably an antivirus program that you need running - but often times there are other programs there that are slowing down your PC, such as updates you need to install or games. If that's the case, then changing the settings of those programs so they don't run in the background and closing them will free up more system memory and processing power, and your computer should run closer to the speed it was at when you first purchased it.

If you have any specific programs you find that you don't know how to disable, just let me know!

Why is my mac slow

Is it slow in general or in certain areas.For instance is it slow processing or slow connecting to the internet.
In your Utilities package, you have an Activity Monitor which may help you detect what is happening.
You can try an app like Disk Doctor and/or Memory Clean which could help.
You could also run an anti-virus app like ClamX and/or Bitdefender.
Hope this helps with your problem.

How can I remove an application from my macbook

Uninstall apps

You can uninstall apps you got from the Mac App Store, from other websites, or from discs. You can't uninstall apps that are part of OS X, such as Safari and Mail. Apps downloaded from the Mac App Store: Click the Launchpad icon in the Dock, hold down an app's icon until all the icons begin to jiggle, then click an app's delete button >. If you later want the app, you can reinstall it from the Mac App Store.

Will having too many processing program will slow down my Mac?

Maybe, or probably. Well, there are a number of reasons that may causing a Mac computer running slow, but generally two factors: hardware part & system part. For hardware part: I guess it's OK if your Mac is not that old. For system part: there might be a lot of junk files, caches, registry errors... out there which largely slow down any Mac machines. about 80% slow Mac caused by this reason, if so, try cleaning the system.
