Hey GF family, hope all is well.

SparkNotes:
- Lenovo T430 running Windows 7 is lagging a bit
- Windows are usually slow on minimize/maximize
- Usually run less than 3 programs at a time (Firefox, NotePad, Spotify)
- Malwarebytes/MSE/CCleaner scans are all clean

Stats:
- HD: 112GB free of 282GB
- 12GB RAM
- i5-3210m CPU @ 2.50 GHz

Any advice on how I can make this laptop run more seamlessly?

Thanks.

Is it a Hard Drive or SSD?

Try defragging it.

how many firefox tabs, what is your RAM usage, cpu usage? might look at your startup processes (msconfig) and prune your unneccessary startup programs, you'll have to do a bit of googling if you're unsure what programs to uncheck

Sounds like your out of memory though you should have plenty.

Open task manager, go to performance tab.
At bottom right, it says "Commit (GB)"
Is the value higher than 12?

Then that's really not your problem
