Hi, i got a brand new acer aspire E1-522 with windows 8.1 a few days ago, i downloaded some stuff(nothing that i didnt have on my old laptop) and its been running really slow ever since.
When i browse the internet(google chrome) i keep getting ads popup in new tabs, it takes a good 3 seconds for words that i have typed to come up, sometimes google chrome just shuts down, programs that i open take a while to actually open and then they usually end up non responding.
i dont know much about laptops so im not sure if this information is necessary but it has
- AMD dualCore Processor E1-2500(1.4GHz)
- AMD Radeon HD 8240 with 512MB Graphics System Memory
- 15.6" HD LED LCD
- 4GB DDR3L Memory
- 500 GB HDD
4-cell Li-ion battery
please help, any help would be fantastic but if the answers could be a little more detailed would be great.

You are welcome! Glad it worked for you!
This needs to be done on every off-the-shelf (store purchased) computer; Dell, HP, Asus, Sony, etc. Manufacturers install all types of third party programs in order to subsidize and lower the cost and the price at which the products are offered for sale.
