    :idea:Low RAM + Slow CPU

    Low RAM + Slow CPU + Windows Update + Watching Online

    Watching live using interent browser could be disturbing, sometimes...


    RAM-memory 1 GB, CPU-processor 1,4 GHz ...it it really not too much to run more processes using a lot of ram-memory at the same, what to do? Deactivate Automatic Windows Update.

    @ Go to > Strat/Run Windows Icone > Control Panel > Windows Update.
    @ The action is set by default ''check for updates automatically'' > change-it to ''do not check for updates''.
    @ In that window click on ''change'' > set ''do not check'' (ignore warning that it is not recommended)

    It is not enough just to set ''check for update at the time you wish'' because the process is still active also when inactive = is asking windows-update-server if something now is there; dunno why, it simply does.


    @ maybe you run Skype, it needs cca. 20.000 kB
    @ maybe you have open a FB/Twitter, it needs a lot of capacity of ram to keep open the content of these social-media-sites
    @ when you are watching online or any clip/movie on You Tube, it temporally eats up to 500.000 kB
    @ at the same time could start antivirus-update, it temporally eats upto 300.000 kB
    @ at the same time could start windows-update, it temporally east upto 600.000 kB

    the ram-memory is close to die beceuse is running over capacity (100%) not for a short time but for longer, do not be surprised if in that condition and usage the updated process takes 10 /or more minutes. You will be not the first with the ''blue screen'' = emergency swithing off.

    Compare the difference when auto-update is on:

    You are watching online = eating a lot of ram-mamery, suddenly an update processe starts at the same = ram is not happy with that = browser is freezing /or you could lost the connection to the server pushing to refresh the window.
    When the day is really bad, also antivirus-update will start as well..., all these processes are eating 100% of RAM-memoty = goodbye movie.

    Compater the differnence when auto-update is off:

    System update is needed then rememebr to run-it manually. When the process is done, here stucks the second small problem...,
    when you start updating: checking / installing the processs could stuck not eating a lot of ram but is alive: eating cca. 30.000 kB. Is is not too bad and you can close the process in the Task Manager but, !!! you have to know which ''svchost.exe'' is guilty = what you usually do not know, well then...

    Cool Do not run windows-update manually while working on computer not face mentioned problem afterwards.

    Rolleyes Run windows-update manually when you are going off: check for updates - install - switch off.

    When you forgot and/or not have a time (checking for update may take upto 10 minutes), nothing bad happend, usually you get just a fresh windows-defender database, system update is not so offten, but remember to check for updates next time.
    It is really not good idea to be lazy and ignore this process for-ever.

    Angel I am trying to be gentil/soft instead of using more explicite warning, i.e. not runing updates is looking for troubles and/or you may ask for help but do not be lazy not doing your best just ignoring warnings.

    When switching off the Automatic Windows Update you get a bubble-warning - every time you switch on the computer - simply ignore, warning will disappear by itself. :WinkExclamationShy

    Do It Yourself not to be forced to buy new computer for low components. With this simple recommendation you can also be a hero of the day, shining like a diamond among classmates, especially among girls.
