I'm 99% positive I don't have a virus.
I've been having problems ever since I switched my old cpu and motherboard with another set.
My last build was:
G.Skill Sniper series 8GB(2x4)(RAM)
AMD Athon X4 760k (CPU)
ASUS A88XM-A (MotherBoard)
Nvidia Geforce 750(GPU)
I had no problems leading up to the switch, I just needed a faster rig.
I switched out the CPU for an Intel i7 4790k "Devil's Canyon", and the motherboard out for an ASUS Sabertooth Z97 Mark 1.
At first, it booted up fine and I had no issues. Since then, the computer has started to degrade. Yesterday I noticed I needed a new windows Product Key. I was able to get a new one through windows support this morning without any issues. Surprisingly, I began to see freezes. At first it was just Windows Explorer, and it would crash upon saving and loading files. Now I literally have to wait every 30 seconds for my computer. It works fine until I click or type something on the keyboard. I have tried to do diagnostics for My SSD(Which holds Windows 7), my HDD(Personal Files), and RAM. All which came up clean. Every program needs excessive start up time, and will wait 2 or 3 minutes to start. Once up and running however, I've noticed some programs run completely lag-free for a good while. For example, I can Open 'FL Studio', it will take 2 - 3 minutes to open, but will run completely smooth past that, including opening and saving files. now I was sure this was a RAM issue. I made complete sure that the RAM was in the optimal position on the motherboard, and that it was secured, which all came up clean. Sometimes upon booting, it fails to recognize that windows is on the SSD, and sometimes, it just fails to boot. If anyone has any insight to my issue, or has any questions regarding missing content to the problem, please tell me!
