 Hey everyone. So, I'm new to this site. I specifically joined in hopes of getting some help with a problem I've been having. I noticed about a month ago that my computer started lagging out of the blue. By lag, I mean substantially slower clicking on icons, opening folders, certain programs running slowly(mainly ableton live), and a much slower response time in general. I didn't know whether this was due to hardware or possibly malware/virus. I have used just about every possible malware and antivirus program and checked my computer for hardware problems to no avail. Then just a couple nights ago I noticed some pesky little program called spigot had arrived. I think these two issues are probably unrelated but now I can't remove spigot! I have done all I know how and need some help. Thank you so much in advance. I can't wait to have my computer back!

Maybe this would be some help for you?




Also check what is starting up when you login using Msconfig.exe (Press the start button, type Msconfig, then navigate to the startup part)
