guys this is my first post here ...
my computer is really messed .. this is gonna be long so lets start ..

okay a couple of days ago i was playing on my computer i turned off the computer and went to sleep .. next morning i woke up ran the pc .. everything is normal .. except that my pc when it closes does a small sound something like "techhh"
its normal and it was there since the day i bought but this only happens when i shutdown but what was unnormal that this happened when the pc was running that morning .. if this happened when a game is running the game lags or crashes .. if its a movie then the movie will stop or lag ... if it is a program then the program will stop .. i did not pay much attention and kept living my life normally :D

now yesterday that sound happened while i was playing css and the computer crashed i turned it off and went to sleep i woke up today and found that the pc is SOOOOOOOOOOO slow ... really i mean it .. its not like the normal slow no .. IT TAKES 1 HOUR TO START .. just to start ... 1 and half hour to run firefox .. what the hell??? games does not even run and my computer opens after half an hour!!

i mean guys thats not normal at all .... this is my laptop that i am typing from .... please help .. is that a virus or hardware / software issue or what ?? ^^ thanks

It could also be infected.

What do you have installed to stop/remove infections?

What have you run?

Have you tried booting into Safe Mode?

Avast is very good.

You are going to need someone with good skill level to help you, it will probably get much harder from now on.
