Hello,
the computer start quite fast and seems to run normally for a while, then start to have difficulties to open some programs(any) or switch to another internet page or site and pretty soon don't respond anymore, if I wait enough time then it put itself together and run again. I checked everything: memory, M.B. and cpu temps, try to restore it to previous time, but don't want to do it, any previous date. It seems to me that the processor may be not running correctly. Any idea vould be welcome . Thanks.

Check your internet connection first. It sounds like you are losing connectivity.

If they are OK, then update and run your antivirus program. Re-reun it until it shows no virus or malware are found.

Look in the Taskmanager (right click on taskbar\taskmanager) see which process is using up high CPU-Memory ussage and if it's unknown search the net for information on the process.

The processor is probably ok.. the problem is most likely caused by a virus/malware infection.

Run several scans with; the installed antivirus, with an online antivirus, with antimalware and antirootkit applications, previously deleting all= user, system and Internet temporal files (use CCleaner for a quick & efficient cleanup), disable startup programs, use "Autoruns" to disable hidden processes... and depending on the scan results you may want to replace the installed antivirus with a more efficient & secure antivirus.
