Hi Ketti 101,

 

Thanks for contacting us today. It doesn't sound like the memory would be the bottleneck causing the sluggishness. When you pull up task manager how much CPU usage are you seeing? How much memory is being shown used there? My guess is it's either the CPU or the hard drive. If it's the hard drive you could look at replacing it with an SSD and you should see some improvement there.
