By "clean up" do you mean finding and removing any malware? If so, try Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (there's a free version) and/or Superantispyware (also free).

If you're talking about getting rid of unnecessary junk that was preloaded on the computer, try PC-Decrapifier (also free). It will list the preloaded garbage and you can decide what to remove. For other unneeded stuff (temp files, etc.) try CCleaner.

Have you tried a system restore?

Can you remove/uninstall anything?

What started or caused the issue, when was the last time it was working fine?

Does it sound like a hardware issue, like memory, or some software failing or caused this issue?



I don't know if I can help you but doing the above and the following will be a good start.

Please download MiniToolBox, save it to your desktop and run it.

Checkmark the following checkboxes:
List last 10 Event Viewer log
List Installed Programs
List Users, Partitions and Memory size.

Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
