Yesterday morning, my two year old laptop (Dell Inspirion 1501) just started lagging while I type, sometimes by 5-10 seconds. This started after my boyfriend (whose screenname I am using) did a full Defrag and cleaned out my Temporary Internet Files. My computer had been slowing down while playing Sims 2 and watching videos on Hulu beforehand, hence why he did the Defrag and cleaned out the files. Now, everything runs more smoothly, but since then, everything I type, no matter if it's in Outlook, MS Word, IE, or Firefox, follows 5-10 seconds later. Needless to say, I'm getting very annoyed.
I did a full scan with Anti-Malware Bytes and Microsoft Security Essentials and they found nothing. I also did a Windows Update - nothing.
I have not downloaded anything recently, at least not knowingly, so I am at my wits end.
If I have left out any information you think would be helpful, please let me know.
I look forward to solving this problem with your help
