I'm new here so please bare with me.
A few years ago I was quite hands on managing my computer issues, and competent enough to resolve some basic problems. Now unfortunately I'm not as competent as I purely don't have time to maintain it.
So the problem I'm having is relatively new and it's been building up for a few days before I've decided to post here.
I'm having issues at times rebooting the computer, with it taking forever to switch off also. The other issue is chrome seems to be crashing alot lately, making me think there is a problem and malware infection on my computer. I've had problems where ctrl alt delete doesn't work, and even task manager is freezing. Antivirus doesn't suggest a problem either.
Now, if anyone could tell me a series of steps to diagnose the issue and any methods to correct it i'd be highly appreciative. I used to enjoy doing this, but now I don't even know what basic utilities I should run to ensure smooth running of my computer!
This may have been posted on the wrong forum, for which I apologise.
