Windows (10) is being unbearably slow

January 7, 2017 at 12:43:14
Specs: Windows 10 home, AMD athlon X4 860k Quad Core Processor/8gb
I left my computer running overnight one night and the next day it was unbearably slow so I reset it and it still was. Like nothing opens at all. So I've looked at error messages and such and there was nothing out of the ordinary. Under processes there was nothing taking up a unordinary amount of CPU so we're kinda stuck. We were thinking it might be a driver issue but we don't know. I've also done a system restore to before it started happening and it's still being slow and did virus scans with malwarebytes and AVG before and after the restore and nothing came up. I have a very fast computer too. Thanks beforehand!

A lot of people leave their computers on 24/7. What do you mean - "reset it"? And what is slow - everything or just the internet?

Run Disk Clean Up.
If by reset you mean restart, try shutting down for a minute, then restarting.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Run these two programs too as they often find malware that doesn't show up with MalwareBytes Anti-Malware:

AdwCleaner:
https://toolslib.net/downloads/view...
(blue "Download Now" button on right).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Use the "Scan" button, followed by the "Clean" button.

Junkware Removal Tool (JRT)
https://www.malwarebytes.org/junkwa...
(blue Download button).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run JRT. It might appear to have stopped at times or flash the screen but sit tight until it has finished.

Keep the logs and run MWB again afterwards.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
