I've played Flight Simulator X on my laptop for over a year..and loved it. Two months ago I was forced to stop because my laptop is now extremely slow. My dad things FSX ruined it. I miss playing it. I'm getting a new laptop in a few weeks..so my question is.. would FSX actually slow my computer down and give it viruses? Can I still install it on the new laptop..and if I do..is there any add-ons or anything I can get that would prevent me losing another laptop
Any information is helpful
FYI, if your computer is more than a couple years old, that may also be the problem.
So throw off the bowlines.

No Boing Boy, FSX did not and will not ruin your laptop or give it viruses. It might slow down your computer while it's running, and all computers invariably get slower as you store more information and install more programs, and introduce more background processes. Data becomes fragmented and your computer idles at a higher processor load, with less free memory.
You could probably fix up your old computer with a good drive formatting.
Also, all the additional mods and aircraft might bog down your PC. I had that issue in the past!
