    Computer Webroot Report

    Webroot analyzed my system and found the following:

    Hardware: CPU is underpowered and impacting performance

    A large number of temp files (I just did a disk clean) have been found

    An active process has a memory leak (what the heck is that?) (IE/Microsoft)
    An active process has a possible handle leak (what???) (Firefox)

    What am I supposed to do?

    Well for one thing don't get too upset about it. System analyzers like that should be taken with a grain of salt. Unless you're doing a lot of CPU intensive tasks like editing/rendering video or using autoCAD or photoshop or Bitcoin mining etc you probably won't notice any difference with a higher powered CPU. Certainly not for normal web surfing or watching youtube or using Microsoft Office etc.

    Memory leaks can cause a browser or other program to bog down after a period of time and use up RAM unecessarily but none of these things would be remotely related to the speed issues you talk about in your other thread.
    Don't believe everything you think.
