Hello

My Note 2 has suddenly started to slow down and lock up.
It is 4 months old and been perfect until today.

I have scanned the sd card, no issues.
Cant find out how to scan the machine itself.

I have deleted one of the two apps that AVG identified as 'malware', both games that had been fine before.

I regularly close down apps through the task manager

any hints???
help please

How slow?

Remove all widgets and if if you running tw try another. That will remove some slowness.

How do you kill apps. Use the one in settings and kill apps. You don't need third part.

If you are using Chrome? Uninstall it!

TW is samsung launcher. Well if it takes 30 sec to do something stuff like removing widget won't help. That can fix lag that is about one sec. Some of the standard widget are heavy.

I think some process is ****ed up. Restore?

Go on xda.
r00t it.
Make a Titanium Backup and a nandroid.
Do a factory reset from the Settings.
Format your SD card.
r00t it again (if lost)
Do a Titanium Restore.
Everything should be iOS smooth, if not, look at the data you backed up.
....when feeling adventurous flash some custom roms

I don't think it's possible to build a device lagfree. All devices has it. Even powerfully computers.

You do know the processor is just a very small part of a device. There are so many curatorial to consider as well.

Thanks all so far.
I just did a force stop on TW and lost all my homes screens - no big deal. But by losing the widgets it has speeded up considerably.
I will give the device until tonight before doing a factory reset.

I was tempted to just copy all the files to my pc and then back again rather than try a backup as I have bad memories of these on past HTC devices. Bujt we shall see

Also, where should I look for alternative ROMs and any suggestions?
