I don't know what operating system your using but with Windows just turning off auto updates can simply boost your laptop performance. However you will then need to do manual updates periodically. This link may help.

Your laptop may need what is called optimizing but I would just try turning off the auto updates for the moment.

@Eddie it's difficult to diagnose, because you've not provided any useful/essential information....

Are you running Mac or PC? What OS? What's the spec of the laptop?

What (exact) version of VDJ are you running? What skin are you using?

Are you playing audio or video files? From an internal or external drive?

Are you using a controller or external audio interface? Which one?


The more info you provide, the easier suggestions can be offered.
