I currently own the following desktop:
Pentium Dual Core CPU E5500
I bought it in 2010 and it has served me well. However, in the past year, this PC has slowed down greatly. Even though I have plenty of memory, it takes forever for some pages to open, and whenever I'm on Facebook, that site will freeze after about 10 minutes. Even local applications take a long time to open.
I've done all the usual maintenance - scanned for viruses and malware, cleaned my cache and registry, etc. But none of this had any impact.
I want to keep Windows 7 as I have no interest in the mess that is Windows 10. Best Buy has many refurbished PC's that are in the $200-$300 range and have a lot more memory than my current one. I also want another desktop.
Has anyone used a refurbished PC in the past? What do I need to look out for?
