Running Windows 7 Pro on an HP 4545S laptop. It has 4 gigs of memory.
It boots to Windows 7 quickly. After I start the applications (see attachment) the laptop runs slower and slower.
I suspect swapping is the problem but I am not a Windows expert.
I have attached snapshots from the Windows Resource tool which I hope will be useful.
The laptop is attached to a Small Business server 2008 domain.
I have run Malwarebytes several times to be sure there are no virus problems.
The Anti virus (TrendMicro Worry Free Advanced) shows no problems.
I have changed the performance system settings to Windows Classic.
In "Performance Settings" I have selected "best performance".
The laptop manual says the maximum memory is 8 gigs.
Before I spend money buying memory, I want to make sure the problem is swapping and not something else.
