Welcome,

Can you tell us how much RAM is installed and the amount of free space on your HDD?

Thanks

 

Dick

Start Windows Task Manager and take a look at which processes are hogging your CPU and then post them here.

Please download and install Speccy to provide us with information about your computer.  When  FileHippo opens, click on Download latest version in the upper right pane.
 
When Speccy opens you will see a screen similar to the one below.

Click on File which is outlined in red in the screen above, and then click on Publish Snapshot.
 
The following screen will appear, click on Yes.

I hope you don't mean that you are going to send the Speccy link through a PM to me.  You need to post the link in your topic. 

 

By the way, my user name is dc3.

Latigre,

Since you said you are having minimal processes that are taking your CPU usage up to 100%, you really do need to start Task Manager and tell us which processes are taking up the largest percentages of your CPU.

That really needs to be your first step here.

I disagree, the information the Speccy will provide can reveal a great deal and eliminate some possibilities.

Well, I didn't say that Speccy wasn't going to be useful--it probably would be.

However, based on the OP's description of the problem, the simplest and easiest FIRST step is to check Task Manager--the few offending processes should be plain to see. Based on the results from looking at Task Manager, he could install/run Speccy. That was my point, and I stand by that.

Please run chkdsk /r
 
Open Search and type in cmd.
 
When this is displayed in the result box right click on it.  At the bottom of this window click on Run as administrator.
 
When the Elevated Comman Prompt opens type in chkdsk /r and press Enter.
 
You will receieve the message "CHKDSK cannot be run because it is in use by another process.  Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts?  <Y/N>".
 
Type in Y and press Enter.
 
Restart your computer to start the scan.
 
This will take a while to run, please be patient and allow it to complete the scan.
 
When the scan is finished please download and run ListChkdskResult.
 
This will open Notepad with the results of the chkdsk scan.  Please copy and then paste this log in your topic.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
