Download then run Speccy (free) and post the resultant url for us, details here, this will provide us with information about your computer hardware + any software that you have installed that may explain the present issue/s, this includes your choice of AV software AVG which is a known hog on system resources that slows down a computer while not being as good an AV programme as it once was.

Thanks for the answer.
While trying to open my published speccy link i have twice gotten a fatal error. The first time KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR and the second time PFN_LIST_CORRUPT. The KERNEL error is about the third in just a week.

Two things of note from the Speccy results: Your pagefile is set too high and you are running low on free storage space on the C: partition that has Windows on it;
Partition ID: Disk #0, Partition #2
Please note that in order to avoid data corruption and/or mechanical HDD failure for data only HDDs you must always have a minimum of 10% of the HDDs overall storage capacity available as free space and between 20 and 25% of a HDDs overall storage capacity available as free space if the OS is on it, the free space allows for information to be copied to and from the drive efficiently and it reduces the risk of the OS being overwritten/becoming corrupted by a simple task such as installing a Windows or a third party software update.
Not having the above can render a computer inoperable if the HDD concerned has the OS on it due to the MBR (Master Boot Record) becoming damaged/corrupt, please see information @ http://pcsupport.abo...sterbootrec.htm
Open My Computer. At the top right, there is a search field...type pagefile.sys and click the search icon. In the search results, right click on the file (pagefile.sys) and choose Delete...confirm the deletion.
Restart your machine. A new pagefile will be created automatically when the machine starts, please check the size that has been set.
If you have something to add while waiting for a reply use the edit tab – bottom right of the dialogue input box and this will ensure that no information that you provide is overlooked (this can happen if your topic has more than one page)

Thanks, i could not find the pagefile.sys, but manually set new virtual memory. I also freed up disk space as recommended. Thanks.
My disk runs quite much better now, and the freed up disk space seemed to be the most critical factor.

Aye the virtual memory moves data from the Ram to the paging file and in turn moving data to and from the paging file frees up the Ram allowing it to complete the task/s that it has been set, perhaps I should have explained this earlier
Glad to hear that things are running better but give it a couple of days and then let us know how things are, unless you need to post back sooner that is
You are welcome btw
