I'm not a real tech savvy person so forgive me if I'm clueless or not providing enough info.

It's been like this for a while now, at one point it took a while to start up. Like logging into the account, booting up was fine. It's just when logged in it gets slow. Then it continues to be slow loading everything up. It used to be it'd be slow for a while then eventually it'd get fast and there'd be no problems. It's the same thing now, except it's constntly slow (but tolerable, not so much video or music since it sounds REALLY glitchy) and will act normal for about 10 minutes max. Then it gets REALLY slow and glitchy, like the mouse cursor isn't smooth or anything and it nearly freezes. Is it an infection? I have SUper Anti Spyware free and Malware Bytes free, I've done quick and full scans but really nothing pops up except the adware.

I have an Acer laptop, WIndows 7, so if there's anything that could help me out I'd greatly appreciate it!

Do you have an anti virus app installed and if so, have you done a full system scan with it?

If by app you mean a virus scanner, yes, Super Anti Spyware and Malware Bytes, both free versions, earlier I have done a full system scan. Nothing popped up and the problem persisted.

Neither of those is an anti virus application. I suggest you post in the Am I Infected forum on this site. Let's rule out (or in) malware before we go further.

I'd run ccleaner slim and the built in disk cleanup.

Unfortunately, neither of those actions will effect the issue the OP is having.
