Computer is running super slow and programs crash???

by Dageee / June 11, 2015 3:10 PM PDT

Lately my computer runs super slow. When I boot my computer it takes it's normally time of about 13 secs. Most of the applications that start when I log on start fast such as Skype and my GPU tweak and steam. But after they are down loading the computer badly functions? I have tried a memory test and a hard drive scan nothing found wrong, I also downloaded a SMART application to test the life it was good as well. But I have noticed when I start CSGO at the start of my boot everything seems to run as normal just a tad bit slower, I can use Chrome again, stream Netflix Hulu ect. Without it crashing on me. But sometimes every thing will stop responding for a while. This has been going on for about 6 days now and is getting worse, sometimes I can't even get CSGO to open up. I also scanned do virus and malware nothing showed up any help would be greatly appreciated.

open command line and type this:
sfc /scannow
sigverif
driverquery
after that run msconfig - > boot tab - > advanced options -> number of processors and choose 4
after that go to startup tab and turn of items that you do not need on startup on your everyday basis

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
