Some of the most common reasons why computers or the internet slow down is due to having too many processes running at the same time. Having multiple applications running  and multiple browser windows open have the effect of creating multiple processes . The best way to keep your computer is only open what is needed to complete the tasks you are working on.

A computer will work better

if it is given time to completely start.

It is always possible to start using your computer as soon as it starts up but the computer will slow down completing the tasks you are trying to complete to finish the processes it must take to finish the startup.

 

~Slow Down~  Things will work better.

IT'S NOT

ALWAYS

THE INTERNET

Often what seems to be slow internet isn't.

When you are submitting answers on learning websites such as Galileo or K12 you may run into issues waiting for your your answers to submit or move on to the next question. Be patient. Most of the time there are thousands of students accessing these sites at the same time. The learning site can become overloaded with incoming data. Do not submit your answers over and over. Doing this will freeze up your browser and cause you to restart your computer.

IT'S TIME TO RESTART

Often computers freeze or quit working right.

Sometimes the best solution is to just restart your computer. Problems such as the mouse or track pad is not working right or a program stops loading or maybe you can't get a internet connection at school or at home. The most simple solution in most cases is to restart your computer.
