If you’re like me, you feel that the cutting-edge features and layout of Windows 10, awesome as they are, are missing something. What precisely that “something” is can be difficult to describe, but I can safely say that Windows 95 had it.

Although Windows 95 was released less than 25 years ago, it feels as though an entire century has passed since I was able to experience the operating system in all its unimpeded glory.

Your computer’s been running slow, hasn’t it? I’m sorry to hear that, but it may be time to face the facts and find out whether your laptop is simply old and slow, or worse, infected with a malware. These threats are more common with increased age of the computer, and often dictate whether you might as well purchase a new system.

 

The chances of your laptop being infected by malware are probably lower than the chances that it’s just old and slowing down with the times.
