All of a sudden my laptop is so laggy after startup to the point where I can't open anything. If I try to open something it'll open but then seconds later become unresponsive

Blow out the case and use a cooler. This often happens if they get too hot.

If it's laggy on start-up, that means you've either got a TON of start-up apps, you've got an infection, or like i7Baby said, you're overheating.

Try typing msconfig into your start menu search bar, and disable your start-up programs. See if this helps any, and let us know the outcome.\

My next guess would be a hard drive problem. Run command prompt, and type /chkdsk r

See if that helps, and let us know!

So I cleaned the case and disabled start programs and ran command prompt with no problems found. The problem actually seems to be when I open my browser ( google chrome ) that seconds later everything becomes unresponsive and I have to force shutdown with the power button. Internet explorer being my other browser seems to be working fine. Everything is running smooth it seems until I open google chrome. The problem actually started with google chrome being open then all of a sudden everything became unresponsive. I'm not sure if google chrome could be the problem?

Try and uninstall Chrome, then restart your computer. Do a clean install of Chrome, and see if the issue persists. Hope that works!

And in addition to i7Baby's suggestion, you should run an anti-malware occasionally, too. I recommend Malwarebytes
