Help! My computer is running very slowly today, it couldn't even run flash games on a high fps rate. Please suggest what to do.
I don't have that much money! Don't make me buy stuff that is so expensive, ok?

Hi Glitzchs, welcome to the Forum.

Have you tried shutting down the computer & rebooting. This sometimes clears a bad start up. Have you had any power outages while the computer has been on?.

You may have bloatware and what have you on your computer. On the bottom of the screen towards the right do you see a lot of taskbar icons?

Have you scanned your computer with anti-virus/adware removal software? If not try the following:

SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition

AdwCleaner - Free Adware Cleaner & Removal Tool | Malwarebytes

Malwarebytes Download - Free Virus Scan & Virus Protection Tool | Malwarebytes

I'd go through all of your installed programs and uninstall the crap you don't need or use. Use Revouninstaller and chose the advanced setting to uninstall of a program you don't need or want. Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Free and Full Download - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems

Looking at your CPU, that looks like a percentage number of it being used. Right click the task bar below and select Start Task Manager. Now under the Processes tab click it until its ordered so that the higest CPU usage is shown first. What process/s is/are using the most CPU resources?

Well I don't know about this site, seems to censor the image upload URL and imgur doesn't work right now!

Attachments here look like crap as they are combined with no space. Top image is of the taskbar you right click on your desktop at the bottom screen.

Hi F22 Simpilot! Thank you for your warm welcome <3
My highest cpu usage is the browser (opera), if it is closed everything just stays 00.
yes, MSI has bloatware (MSI super charger and some stuff)
I scanned my computer with malwarebytes a couple times (free version) but I uninstalled it because it's process has the highest cpu usage along with the browser.

Go to Accessories, System Tools. Run the Disk Cleanup utility. When it says how much space it can gain, check the boxes for temporary files and Recycle Bin. Let it run, when it's done, reboot.

Does that help?

wither 2,

It can only clean up to 473 MB. (Clean System Files)
I always clean my recycle bin whenever I delete something so this won't help.
I always clean the temp files too and and use Tron's (Tron fights for the User) temporary internet files cleaner.
Yeah that won't work.

Can you please and go back and do everything I said in post #3. Report back after you do all that I mention. I'm trying to help you. If what I say doesn't help after you do EXACTLY what I say, then we'll move on to other things. First try this and then we can look at hardware and what not.

Note that I said "Temporary Files," not "Temporary Internet Files." When you select the former and Recycle Bin, the amount of space it can recover is much larger that the initial report (473 MB). You just won't see anything that tells you how much it recovers. It's strange that running it on a drive with lots of free space often helps. I do see you mention temp files but I don't know which Temp folder you're cleaning.
