So I started having problems about a week ago. Long story short, the computer effectively froze, everything took forever to happen or never happened at all, and I had to force shut down several times. The long version can be found here: http://www.geekstogo...down-immensely/, which never got a response after several days.

Nevertheless, I began encountering a few more problems over the last few days, such as Windows Explorer crashing every time I clicked "New Folder" in the period of a few hours. Computer also "froze" again without the external hard drive attached. Made me think maybe the computer's just gone crazy on its own whenever I open or do something that may take up plenty of memory/CPU. (Opening really old videos with crappy resolution = no problem. Opening today's 720/1080p videos, even those downloaded from Youtube = problem within several videos.) So, hopefully I could get some advice to see if it's anything I can quickly fix on my own regarding the OS before jumping back to the conclusion that my laptop is infected with something.

Many thanks!

Hi :welcome:

Sorry for the delay, but because you have started a topic in the Malware Removal forum, we can't help you now here. Please post a note about your Malware topic here, providing also a link to it.

When someone from the malware staff will declare that your machine is clean, then we may move on to some more investigation here.
