  2. Additional Details:
    Im pretty sure its not a virus cause ive learned from those in the past so i killed my computer with antivirus software and all the scans say my pc is clean.

  1. Here is what i would do; change your performance to 'Max FPS', flip your open GL to 'on', change your render distance to 'short' when in jungles, normal at all other times, play on peaceful, move slower, and make SURE EVERYTHING EXEPT Minecraft is closed

  1. I haven't played Minecraft yet,but I believe you have a virus on your computer! Its the first thing that popped into my head AND is the most probable.

  2. You most likely need a new update (for minecraft) if you don't have the newest one. If it's already the most up to date version of minecraft, I have no idea. It may also be because your computer is having trouble.

  3. Dude, it might just be your computer or Java. Here's some things to check:

    1. Update Java. Always helps with games like Minecraft.

    2. Update/Clean your computer. Unwanted/unused files can take up space in your computer and slow down Minecraft.

    3. Get a new computer. If your computer is now used for things like school, work, etc., then it's probably other projects in there that you might have typed/done on a computer, or it's not capable of running computer games.

    4. Viruses. If your comp has been bombarded with viruses in the past, then it's most likely the reason you Minecraft version is so laggy.

  4. Well your computer might be getting messed up. Or since Minecraft saves so often your save could just hold too much information for your computer to hold. Sorry to say this but you might need to start a new world.

  6. Um.. Is your minecraft old? Try updating it. Are you bulding to fast on creative? Do you have a lot of stuff? Is there a lot of pistons moving things? Do you have a bunch of people on your server?

    If any of these things are true I think you know what to do. Like say you have a lot of pistons moving. To much movement can cause lagg it hapend to me with my roler coster. I had TNT at the end but there was too much movement.

  7. 21 dollars?
    a minecraft account Minecraft is bought from Minecraft.net for $24.95, unless you bought it earlier on, you have an illegal version
    But assuming you bought it from Minecraft.net, the account is still fine and the problem is with your computer
    So if you have a legal version, you should be able to play minecraft on almost ANY computer
    if it is a legal version, and it is the same on any computer, then I cannot help you

  8. Theres a few ways. One is click on the start menu, right-click computer, click properties, and it will open up your computer specs. If your GB of RAM is pretty low, consider upgrading to a new computer.

    But if your computer specs are pretty good, with a high GB of RAM, try updating your Java. It helps with games like Minecraft
