PC Suddenly Very Slow After a Crash
So, a few days ago, I woke up to find that my PC had crashed. Naturally, I reboot it, only to find out that my PC's performance speed was drastically slower upon starting up. By that I mean that opening programs takes forever, opening more than 2 tabs on any browser would freeze and crash the browser itself, stuff like that. Needless to say, it's pretty infuriating. My next instinct was to try system restore and check for viruses afterwards, but it was all to no avail. Does anyone know what may be causing this, and how to stop it?
I recommend running malwarebytes, never know if it's a nasty virus running havoc in your system.
EDIT -- Just noticed that you said you ran anti virus.
FURTHER EDIT -- Like smog0 said, I would check your CPU, RAM usage and core clocks to make sure that they are running at the speed they should be. Run chkdsk, maybe your HDD is on it's way out the door.
