Could you download Revo Uninstaller (free) and use that to uninstall the problematic programmes. The re-install the programmes and let me know if you still get the same problem

Could you go to DriverMax and download the small programme and install
Then run the programme and allow it to check your drivers
The free version allows you to update two drivers per day
When you have run driver max and it takes you to the driver page could you post the link to that page and we will then determine the order in which to update your drivers

Once done then retry the programme to see if the error still exists

When I start up the computer its fine. But as time goes on, the computer has this sort of grind where YouTube videos are in lag mode but they've finished buffering. The Same could be said for the games I mentioned Portal, The Sims 3 & Bejeweled 3. Let's Just try to fix that because I would really like to play Portal and the lag is killing me.
Thank you for all the other help though.

Subject to no further problems
I will remove my tools now and give some recommendations, but, I would like you to run for 24 hours or so and come back if you have any problems
Now the best part of the day ----- Your log now appears clean
A good workman always cleans up after himself so..The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset System Restore points:
- Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, paste in the following
- Then click the Run Fix button at the top
- Let the program run unhindered, reboot the PC when it is done
Run OTL and hit the cleanup button. It will remove all the programmes we have used plus itself.
We will now confirm that your hidden files are set to that, as some of the tools I use will change that
- Click Start.
- Open My Computer.
- Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
- Select the View Tab.
- Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Do not show hidden files and folders.
- Click Yes to confirm.
- Click OK.

- For a few moments the system will make some calculations

Download and run Puran Disc Defragmenter
For the first run I would recommend a boot defrag and disk check
Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programmes:
Malwarebytes. Update and run weekly to keep your system clean
Download and install FileHippo update checker and run it monthly it will show you which programmes on your system need updating and give a download link
It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.

There is ONE more question:
When I try to use Windows Update, I get an error code saying that I dont have administrative rights. How can that be when I'm the only one who uses my computer?
