The lag that you are experiencing is most likely due to lack of available memory. Try clicking on start, then click run. Type in "msconfig" without the quotation marks and then press enter. Click the "Start Up" tab and that will show a list of programs that are starting with windows. Uncheck any of the programs that you do not need running all of the time, this will greatly help speed up the computer. I also recommend that you scan for spyware/adware. As for speeding up the internet, the only thing you can really do is switch to a faster service. Choosing a different browser that is slimmed down (Opera) may help a little.

It would be helpful if you listed your system specs. That is quite an old laptop to be running windows 8 on and you might need to upgrade your RAM. The original system specs say that laptop shipped with 512MB of RAM so if you haven't upgraded, you should.

Good Moring,

1)start your antivirus while log in safe mode and run a full scan
if virus is found remove it and start windows normally run a full scan afterwards
2) if no antivirus is install, i would recomend you to reinstall the OS

Something is running in the background that is using processor time. Try shutting down NORTON (disconnect from internet first) Open several windows, play a game and play some music to stress the processor a bit, see if it is still happening. If it isn't Norton is your problem. Before I switched virus programs and ditched Norton, I had a lot of this going on. Norton seems to do a check every few seconds and I was never able to discover a way to turn that off. If you can handle the "techs" Call them and ask them to help you fix this... otherwise... Get another anti virus solution. (I use AVAST internet security)
