My 6 year old laptop was getting slower each day. Had a Technician clean up my computer using several programs, ccleaner, etc. It ran much faster for a while, then back to being slow. My tech mentioned my HD was just getting old and needed a new Hard Drive. I read lots of info on a SSD, so I installed one.
I was surprised. Was like I had a new computer. All Aps. Loaded much faster.
