Are you sure you don't have a virus? What anti-virus programs have you run? Keep in mind, the changes ccleaner makes(ex: the registry) can sometimes make things worse. Its recommend to stay pretty much out of there, unless you understand what its doing, or need to change something with the registry.

I've tried running malware bytes and crappy bit defender and it just been generally slow since i got it, do you think it could be related to my CPU temp? that generally is like about 136 degree's Fahrenheit, also i ran GMER and it didn't pick anything up, but i had a file i thought might be a virus, the kind where it shows up in the "start-up programs" list but when you delete it, immediately shows up again, but i just deleted the real file it was listing and it went away. but i am really to the point of smashing it with a sledge hammer, :thumbsup: burning the pieces of it, and pissing on the ashes, so any suggestions would help.

Well...138 degrees Fahrenheit is about 60 degrees Celsius.

I'd say that that this is warmer than I would want my CPU temps...generally, I would be concerned about anything in the low 50s and up. I consider heat the prime enemy of any system.
