Question about Computers & Internet
You have something hogging your PC resources and or a virus.
To start. Start the PC but before it starts to load windows press the F8 key to get the pre-boot menu. Select Safe Mode and it will boot into windows with only the core functions running.
Go to control panel add/remove programs and remove all uneccessary programs. You should also try and keep 10% of your hard drive space free.
Go to run and type in msconfig then press enter
Go to startup tab and untick all unneccesary items.
Go back to Run and type chkdsk/f
This will force a full check disk and fix after restarting.
Once you can boot into windows even if it is still slow, ensure you have a good antivirus. You can get a avast home for free from www.avast.com
Install this and run a full system scan.
Then download Spybot Search and Destroy from www.download.com and install, select immunize and then, update and do a full scan which could take a while if you have loads of files.
Then do windows updates.
After most things, right click on My Computer and properties, then system tools and then deframent, run a degragment on C drive and then all other hard drives.
The whole process is probably going to take you around 2 days withthe scanning and defragmenting.
Alternatively if you have backups of your data, you can format your drive do a clean re-install of Windows Operating System.
