1/27/2018 1:40:46 AM My computer has been running slowly and lately struggling with loading programs. Used to be I could turn it on and almost immediately go about my business. Now I have to wait a little while for it to wake up. Note: Purchase date of this PC is actually a little difficult to pinpoint. The case is original but I've been replacing hardware over the years as technology updates.
