My game is really slow

Solution 1 - Check for system updates
First check whether there are any Windows updates or program updates running in the background as this can cause games to perform slowly.

If there are Windows updates available, perform the update and try playing your game again. It is also a good idea to close any programs running in the background.

Solution 2 - Uninstall/redownload your game, then change the player profile
First, uninstall and then redownload your game as this may already help. Most games have different player profiles built into the game. If your game is not progressing or is running slow, then changing the player profile within the game may already solve the problem.

Solution 3 - Update your Graphic Card driver 
In some cases, games can perform slowly or display incorrectly when your graphic card driver becomes outdated. The most common drivers are AMD RadeonGeForce and Intel. Click on the name of the driver you have (if known) and follow the steps to update this.

Note: Intel users - Some PC manufacturers can modify Intel's drivers to add or remove functionalities. This means that if you have a branded device, it's recommended to download the latest graphics update from your manufacturer first, then through Intel. 

The most common PC manufacturers are Acer, Asus, Dell, HP and Lenovo. Click on the name of your PC manufacturer and follow the steps to update update your driver there first.
