Windows 7: Computer all of a Sudden slow and Choppy

Computer all of a Sudden slow and Choppy

Hi guys My computer this week decided to be really slow. So slow in fact that as I am typing this message the words fall behind. Forget video just a garbled glitchy mess. I run win 7 clean install and firefox mostly. I have a Gateway NV52 4GB of ram but even scrolling the page down is glitchy. IDK the issue. I have scanned using Morcosoft items as well as avast not sure what else to do.

Thanks guys!!!

Do a complete malware scan with Malwarebytes and see if that shows up anything. Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware download

Doing that right now. If I find the issue Ill remove it and post what it was. Strange thing is my cpu usage is well below 50% so it has to be something other than over running, cleaned my computer so no over heating.

Could it be the flash update? IDK can't do any video or music just read threads and news.

I don't think it would be flash.

May not be malware, but that is a good first step.

Just did the antimalwarebits and found nothing. Here's what I found: If I restart the computer, everything is FINE. Perfect. However If I log off and let my GF log in under her name and then log back into my name everything is very slow. I have to restart the computer and then everything is OK, weird, I haven't a clue.

Hi, I ALWAYS download these programs when I install new windows on any computers.

1. install CCleaner (CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download) and clean up registry.
2. install Defragger (Defraggler - File and Disk Defragmentation - Free Download) its not necessary but it helps.
3. Use google chrome. it is faster than firefox for sure.
4. run antivirus. I use avast antivirus. its free.
5. delete unnecessary programs.
6. stop unnecessary programs to run at startup.

If your computer is still slow, i suggest backing up all your data to external hard drive and clean install windows.

Cheers!
