I have a relatively new computer.  Bought it last fall.  It has windows 8.  Recently it has been running very slow.  Web pages run and load slow.  Sometimes the cursor, moves slower than the mouse, making it continue moving after i quit adjusting it.  I opened task manager and noticed that the Disk Space is 99% full, but I dont really see anything that looks like it should be full? I dont know if there is a virus or some other problem?  I am not terribly tech savvy, but I know enough to follow directions that I am given, if they are specific enough.  Thank you for any help or suggestions you can give.ZCIirq7.png

Hi

Your disk is not 99% full. What you are looking at is how busy the disk drive is.

Try shutting down Chrome and seeing if other programs run OK. If they do then you probably have picked up some bit of Malware in Chrome.

You can get rid of a lot of nasty stuff in chrome be resetting it.

Go to the "Customize and control Google Chrome" button. It is under the X button in the top right hand corner of the window.

Click on 'Settings'

at the bottom of the next screen click on 'Show advanced settings'

Then look for the 'Reset Settings' button at the bottom of the page.

I closed chrome and the disk space changed to 14%.  I then opened chrome and reset the settings as directed.  But the disk space usage is still up at about 90%.  A little better, but still very slow.
