Computer wont run any programs and everything runs super slo

Has happened for about 3 days now rendering my PC completely useless it's so slow. I would click on a program and it would light up as I clicked it but then fade back to its original state seconds later. If I wait like 20 minutes it would open but it still wouldnt load. Everything keeps saying (Not Responding) every. Single. Thing. It takes forever to load everything but most the time they dont ever load. If I open Mozilla it just sits on a white screen and opening programs like battlenet it would open after a long long time and when I went to start a game it would start but never load just sit on the very first black screen the game has. Running it in safemode seems to be alright and safemode with network it works better but still will have moments of extremely long loading in Mozilla. These doesnt seem to apply a whole ton to files and start menu but it does apply to my task manager and some other stuff it will take a super long time to load the page. I noticed my webroot antivirus has been up for about a month (something I didnt notice till now) but they still offer scans and it came back negative when I tried it but it also no longer provides me firewall and etc so if this is an issue I'm wondering if rebuying my subscription would help so please lmk....ALSO I keep getting an error message telling me "please confirm whether to support this VGA card!" The only thing I can click is ok so I dont know how to fix this. Someone said delete oc_guru and get msi afterburner and I did that but because of the current state of my PC I cant seem to run it. So again if this is a cause let me know I'm not sure if this has to do with my driver or not but I've tried a number of things this includes:

•Safe mode Cmd Prompt "sfc /scannow"
(Came back with no issues)

•system restore AND safe mode restore
(Tells me I dont have a system restore period but I've done it before)

•updating drivers
(Was already up to date)

•rolling back drivers
(Not sure whether or not it worked)

•and quite a bit other things but not any I can remember off the top of my head.

I dont know much about specs
(Especially since it's kinda hard to check)

But what I do know is I have
AMD Radeon TM R9 380 series
Windows 7 64 bit pro
If you need something else let me know
