Computer is randomly EXTREMELY SLOW.

I tried to scan for viruses but there seems to be an error and scanning takes a very long time because of how slow my computer is right now. I can barely move my mouse without it freezing constantly, programs literally take 5-10 minutes to start up, and it just annoys me how slow this is. I don't think there is a program using too much memory and I am currently scanning my computer for viruses but it is EXTREMELY slow. The framerate is very slow. Any tips on how I can find the problem faster or stop this?
