This might be in the wrong category..please movie it if it is.
I have the Windows 7 ultimate.
My system is as follows:
i7 920 Processor
ASUS P6x58D Premium
12GB DDR3 1600 dominator
(2) 1 TB Samsung drives with RAID 0
(1) 2 TB Hitachi hard drive
(1) 2TB samsung spinpoint Hard drive
Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 5750
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-650TX 650W

Since about 2 weeks ago my system has been laggin a lot with my editing software. Or pretty much anything.
My son did OC my rig about 2 months ago but everything has been running smooth till 2 weeks ago.
I notice when I open up a couple windows of the internet and maybe clicking in explorer I would notice some "flashy" "blinky" or whatever you might call it when I put the mouse on a program or an explorer window. Then I noticed my programs started to really lag , even when starting up windows. Takes awhile for me to open up my programs now. I ran Malwarebytes and Avira and took out some viruses with Avira but none with Malwarebytes, used cc cleaner, took our programs I wouldn't need.
I don't know what to do now. Any suggestions? I want to flash my Bios with a update from ASUS that I just found and wont worry about my little OC to 3.6.
Please if someone can help me out on this. THank you

Open Task Manager and check for any applications or processes that appear to be using large amounts of system resources. Are you sure the system is virus-free now? Sounds like you may still have a malware problem.

^True, check the system temperatures. Slow response and instability could be caused by overheating.
