Hi all,

So last night i was playing some battlefield 3 before i went to bed everything went smoothly and no problems. I turned my computer off before i went to bed. Again no problems. This morning when i woke up i turned my computer on as usual. It booted in around 20secs and was usable. I went to click on chrome and it was really slow to open (never happened before). Then everything started to slow down dramatically. I continually got the error of explorer not responding.

I tried to copy spybot off a usb and was getting speeds on 1.25kbps.. then it would fail and i would have to restart windows through task manager.

Not sure whats going on, need some direction. Cheers.


Specs:
Windows 7 Ultimate on 128 ssd sanddisk
Motherboard: Asus z87-c
CPU: Intel i5 4670
Gpu: Asus GTX 770
PSU: Cosair GS 600
1 tb westurn digital storage.

I would like you to check your RAM first.
Do exactly like it says in this post (don't Download anything, just use the method on "Here's How")
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/715-memory-diagnos...
(Run standard test)

If you will get even 1 error, you got faulty RAM, if no errors come back to thread and rapport :p .
Cause it could as well be a Virus, to many intensive programs on start-up, or full SSD.

Gday KryssNova,

While waiting for a response i ending up restarting my computer and it lead to me a screen regarding that windows could not locate the user files. It wouldnt let me log in. I booted in to safe mode tried to follow a tutorial on youtube however this didnt work as multiple errors were appearing.

Im going to try reinstall windows as i cant log in to perform those tests.

By the way my ssd has got 80gb free and my ram is GeSkill sniper 16gb (2 sticks).

Cheers

If you or someone didn't delete your User Files.
Then yes, it is more than probably a Virus.
After re-installing Windows, I would advise you to get a Anti-Virus, and not browse through web-site that are dangerous.
Also get an Add-block (in your browser), it usually blocks pop-up windows and adds from website as well as some Malware's.
Keep your Windows 7 updated (monthly), there are lot fixes that patch holes in security.


If you already have an paid anti-virus then use that one, if you are using free anti-virus.
I would strongly recommend using :
AVG Free Anti-Virus
ZoneAlarm Free Anti-Virus + Firewall


Edit: You still should check your RAM after re-install though, cause it could be faulty memory that makes data corrupted. Then also you should check your HDD or SDD (whichever on you have your Windows) for errors.

Cheers, still it would be good idea, if you tried to check your RAM and HDD for errors.
Since a flawed RAM or HDD, can just make data corrupted any-time, and you will be stuck with same problem again.
I leave that suggestion to your own leisure.
Just google, HDTune for program to check errors in HDD, and do that method from website I posted before, if you want to check integrity of your RAM.

Take care.
