Computer running incredibly slow as of today. Windows apps not respond

So as of today I turned on my computer as normal and everything is running incredibly slowly. Everything takes forever to load and stops responding within a few seconds.

I managed to open the System page and under Processor it says "Not Available" and the same for "Installed Memory (RAM)"

All I have tried is restarting the computer, shutting it down and turning it off for 10 minutes. I have no idea what to do. I also managed to open cmd and try to run sfc /scannow but it said "Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service"

I cant think of anything that changed between last night and today, I havnt downloaded anything... Please give me some advice!

Hello LiteralEdit,

See if your able to run System Restore. This may or may not help. But, a good starting point.

Apparently I have no restore points so I guess thats not an option.

I managed to fix the problem with my processor and memory no showing but apart from that everything is still running incredibly slow and almost every application stops responding.

OK, sounds like Malware has infested your system.

Let's try a Clean Boot, to see if doing this will speed up you system.
