    Default Games Quit Slowly

    I want to start this off by saying that this thread isn't only about games quitting slowly. It also has to do with how my computer acts after they close. As of recently, all of my Steam games have been taking at least 30 seconds to quit. I will press quit, then the screen will freeze for a while until it quits. Once it quits, my browser works very slowly for a while. Any help would be appreciated.

    I'm not sure the best tech people here come to this sub-forum.

    1. Scan for viruses
    2. Make sure your hard disks are under 80%
    3. Test your RAM
    4. Check if you have all the latest drivers

    Is your profile set as admin? Have you installed many new progs recently? Do you have multiple antivirus progs running (a big no-no)?

    how fast your your internet upload speeds? a lot of steam games use cloud storage and sync saves and other stuff on closing, if you internet speed has dropped it could be extending this process.

    And I have to add, my game lags quite a bit. Does that have to do with the internet or my computer?
