My computer was running fine a couple of months ago but has suddenly become extremely slow and freezes constantly when I even click on one thing. I posted in the malware section and they told me to post here. Here is the link to my previous post:

I have already
If you could help me, I greatly appreciate it!

(I have already taken the steps in the pinned "slow computer?" forum.)

Try removing Spybot and AVG and use the removal tools http://www.avg.com/ww-en/utilities. Download free Avast or Microsoft Security Essentials.

Try downloading Speccy and then install the program. To post and publish a snapshot of your PC.
. In the Menu bar, click File -> Publish Snapshot
. Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard
. On your next reply, right-click on a empty space and click Paste on reply box then click Post.

Thank you for the fast reply.

Deleted both programs and downloaded Avast. Here is my Speccy scan:

Is it slow even when your computer is just newly booted or on late sessions? Check your hardware temps. or thermal events for it may be running on the high side. When was the last time it was cleaned internally? Run the Windows error checking tool and try defragging your hard drive and clean your cache files using Ccleaner.

It is pretty constantly slow, even when I first boot my computer. I have tried to limit my startup programs and have also defragged and cleaned with Ccleaner. I'm not really sure what else could be wrong. It seemed to be running fine a couple of months ago. How do I check the temps?

Run the Windows error checking tool also and run a diagnostic test just in case and use the WD test for Windows and check for any errors. What program did you used in the startup tweaking?
