Pardon me if I use the incorrect terms , but I'll do my best .

My computer was purchased about 2 years ago & has been excellent up until about a month ago .

I will include all info i'm aware of & let you sift through to see what's relevant .

I've included a screen-shot of my system & will try to explain as best I can .

I've been told to use only windows defender & firewall & have no other protection .

I let windows do all the updates & cleaning automatically .

I've never run any "cleaner " of any sort until yesterday when ( after reading this site ) downloaded & ran SuperAnti Spyware ( free ) .

This ^ helped greatly ! 

Is there any other " cleaner " i should be using ? 

 

Problems :

1) Web pages load slowly ( until I used the above cleaner ) 

 

Any help will be greatly appreciated & if I failed to include something , please feel free to speak to me as you would a 2 year old . Because when it comes to this kind of stuff , that's what I feel like .

Download, update, and run MalwareBytes Anti-malware. It's an on-demand (this means it does NOT run in the background, it only runs when commanded) anti-malware scanner that is a good complement to Windows Defender. It's found here ... http://www.malwarebytes.org/antimalware/ . Just download the Free version.

 

Now, your video card is low-end, but if you're not doing heavy gaming, it's more than adequate.

No, not a gamer .

I do however use Pinnacle studio 15 for making videos & the video card seems adequate for that .

 

One other thing I've begun to notice is , if just sitting "idle " with mouse cursor on screen , randomly the little working wheel thing will appear , rotate for a bit & then disappear .
