Hello. About 2 months ago, I purchased a Dell Inspiron laptop. - 2.50 GHz Intel Core i5 Processor - 6GB RAM - Windows 8 (64-bit) When I bought it, it was very fast and had no problems whatsoever. However, about 3 weeks ago, it began to slow down, and has since then only been getting slower. When I start up Chrome, it takes several seconds for what I type in the address bar to appear. Opening windows, right-clicking anything - not always, but the majority of the time is quite slow. I cannot think of anything that has happened to cause this - I have always been very cautious with what I download and it was more of a gradual thing than an immediate change. This happens even if I have nothing running in the background - I opened task manager, and nothing seems out of place. I disabled some startup programs I did not need or care for, ran Disk Cleanup, used CCleaner, used PC-decrapifier to delete unwanted programs, I used MalwareBytes (both a full & quick scan), Avira, and SuperAntiSpyware. None of the anti-virus programs even detected anything other than a couple minor threats, which were of course removed. It's not my internet either, it's like this no matter what I am doing. Now I'm pretty good with computers, but at this point I am at a loss of what to do. No one else uses this computer but me, it was not psychically damaged and has not ever had anything spilled on it. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? It's still so new and the specs are quite good, I was able to run graphic intensive games on it with no lag before, but now it's a hassle even when the settings are low! I just can't imagine what the problem could be.
