Generic information...

There are many reasons why a PC's performance fades; it may be an overloaded hard drive, overworked CPU, malware, unnecessary data, or you may have unnecessary programs running in the background.

Troubleshooting steps...

* List all the Security software you have ever had installed & currently have now on your computer please.

* Browser addons can create problems.Check how many you have on your various browsers. Is each & every one really needed?

* Go to search, type device manager and look for any yellow warning markers

* Download and run SuperAntiSpyware or Malwarebytes - do a full scan after you update.

* Run an antivirus scan

*Type event viewer, in search (by start button) and look for errors that may show the cause of the problem.
Critical errors have red in the left column.
When you find them you want to look those that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the problem.

* Make sure that you are not over heating.

* If overclocking, restore to original

*Clean boot. You may discover what is causing your problem.
