I am publishing a summary record of basic steps you can take to solve this issue, and briefly discussing the three most frequent causes : malware, uncontrolled applications, and insufficient care, because many readers write about their computer responding slowly.
Maybe the greatest contributor to a poorly performing computer is malware. Generally this is associated with downloading an application that includes spyware, by not having browser security settings large enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by failing to install security areas regularly.
Stage 1. Revise the explanations of your anti virus and operate a complete scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Solve any unfixable problems. Notice that some infections require additional steps until they can be removed; typically a websearch will find specific instructions or a special removal tool.

2. If the slowness is abrupt, and you’ve recently downloaded an application, the issue may live there. Test this by totally eliminating it. A user will usually perform a internet search about the application before downloading it because in most instances, any possible difficulty with malware or inferior performance will have surfaced.
Stage 3. Adware and Spyware can drastically impact your personal computer’s performance, and these are around the World wide web.

Then use Window’s Disk Clean-up to delete temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
