I just recently upgraded my computer with 1 more GB of ram and a new power supply and was experiencing great performance. However things randomly started goin wrong one thing at a time. Some webpages started requiring me to click for active x control which they never did before and some even crashed when I did click. My task bar is having errors too such as not allowing me to unminimize an application using right click and sometimes if I have more than 1 browser up I cannot bring up a page thats already maximized while I have another one maximized instead it just starts blnking orange on the taskbar. Also when I open a new application it no longer is automatically selected it also just starts blinking orange in the task bar. And finally a game i was playing without any issues before(battlefield 2 online) is now having huge frame rate issues and lag issues that it was not having at all before all this started to happen. My first thought was malicious software but neither spysweeper nor mcafee found anything for me. Any help would be much appreciated.

Go through the "slow PC troubleshooting checklist" pinned to this forum:


If you have already done these things, then it may be a hardware issue with the new RAM. Please let us know if the checklist helped.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
