Could be that you installed 8 and carried files and apps over from your old Windows installation. I had a few problems with this so did a clean install and then loaded my programs.

having been to 3 stores and played with w8 on their displays all of them had slow computers i was wondering if w8 is generally slow or just bad set up in stores.
