Everything was fine with my laptop and 2 days ago it started lagging horribly. Taking forever to bring up Firefox and load google, then taking even longer to load a webpage. I am needing some assistance in what I can do to see what the issue is and how to clean up the computer.

 

Last night I did a disk defragment, a disk clean up and ran a 360 total security scan. Currently in the process of running a malwarebytes scan as well.

 

Thanks for any and all help.

Could be a virus... Could not... Not very much info there... Try running in Safe Mode and see if it's faster... If it is then it may just be a program hogging resources... If not it may be a deeper issue... Let me know the top processes when you start your computer and how much resources they are hogging...
