This is my first post...I'm afraid I'm one of those "help me!" types when it comes to computers. I can find my way around, and have even upgraded a few graphics cards and sticks or RAM, but I get lost easily when it comes to troubleshooting.
I've noticed my laptop, a Samsung QX410, has been behaving strangely lately. At first I only noticed it while browsing, but it has had moments where it slows to a crawl, and then minutes later tries its best to catch up. I suspected it was the internet connection at first, as I would spend ages waiting for the simplest of pages to load, but as the issues progressed, I noticed that the same problem was happening with other, offline programs, seemingly all at once. That is to say, if I'm browsing and everything slows to a crawl, I'm unable to minimize the window, or open any other programs. The computer isn't frozen at this point, but it certainly is stuck.
Assuming it's not a coincidence, I noticed around the same time as I discovered the above problem that my computer updates itself every time it shuts down. It tends to take quite a few minutes.
I suspect this is some sort of stuck driver but I have no idea how to check.
Thanks in advance, SevenForums.
I've added system specs in hopes of that being able to help you help me. Let me know if I'm missing anything
Some info on my uses of the computer:
It is my daily use computer. I use it for school and for my photography. When it's not in my backpack it's hooked up to a printer and a scanner. I use it heavily for processing photos (Adobe programs). I don't do much file sharing, but I do download files from time to time. I use Microsoft Security Essentials as my Antivirus.
