My computer is running slowly and with a number of seemingly-random bugs and tics. It freezes from time to time, applications can fail to launch, etc. I ran registry recycler, and malwarebytes, and deleted a bunch of unused programs, but I'm still having enough issues that I'd appreciate some advice.
While writing lectures in Open Office, my computer freezes often, and Open Office crashes probably once every hour of usage. I already erased Open Office and reinstalled that program, same issue.
I have an ASUS S400CA, x64-base, Intel (dual core?) i3-3217U @ 1.80ghz, Windows 8.1 (version 6.3.9600 build 9600).
I suspect I do have some viruses, but perhaps I'm just having performance issues. I'm running Registry Recycler's defrag program tonight, but I'd appreciate any advice.
