My laptop has been slowing down lately when running any application, even internet explorer. I've done multiple virus scans that found nothing. When I restarted my computer to do an error check, it kept getting stuck on part 4 of 5 at 34%. Whenever I open the C drive folder, and the folder itself tries to load, but the bar never fully loads and the computer fan comes on, and I usually have to restart and just avoid opening that folder.

Hi,

Check the harddrive functionality, seems that the Harddrive is going bad...
See this link on how to perform a test on a Dell laptop...
