I have this same issue. Only thing that seems to help once I’ve closed everything is to clear cache, etc in chrome then restart the pc. It’s only temporary though, but better than the pc dragging everyday

The computers are fine. It’s the bloatware and redundant security programs IT loads onto them. Go to the performance tab; How many processes are running when you are doing nothing?

Well, we complained enough about the unending and random updates and that finally got fixed. Maybe if enough people complain USLT will take notice and focus on fixing the most important tool we all use every single day.

Go to spark and search for “The Great Suspender” chrome extension. You’ll be able to install the PwC approved version, any tabs not used in the last hour will be suspended and free up RAM. You can also selectively suspend any tab, it’s a lifesaver.

Mine overheated to the point it seems to have burnt out the connection with the speakers/audio, just spend 4 hours with support - the poor lady was so apologetic and perplexed but software wise it is a-ok - hardware issue !!! Was so hot this morning I cld fry an egg up where the keyboard connects to the monitor (battery/fan area)

Mine bottle necks everyday at around 330 for the latest “knowledge burst”. At least I got rid of all the accounting apps. Those daily updates were a huge pain.
