Hello, even now as I am typing, the text doesnt appear until like 5 seconds after I type it. I have went through the virus section of this forum and found there was nothing on my system. Let me list a few of my problems. When I first start my computer and log in, if I quickly go to the internet or notepad and type something, it will type the letters one at a time very slowly. It does this for 5 minutes after every startup. Also recently my computer randomy just becomes slow. It may take 10 seconds to switch to different programs, typing becomes slow, bringing up task manager takes 30 seconds. Yesterday my computer hung for like 10 minutes and I could not do anything until it sorted itself out. And like just selecting a different tab on my browser or a different program, will say (not responding) on the top constantly.


So I literally dont know why this is. I am thinking I have a major bottleneck somewhere because most of my components are really good.


I have 12gigs of ram, a nvidia gtx 980 ti, an I7 x990 cpu, and am using windows 7.


Technically my computer should be running like a dream, yet it doesnt and I dont know what to do. Is it maybe time for a reinstall?

Actually, I may have fixed it... Apparently windows updates was turned off and i had 72 to install since january. Everything seems to be fine now. I underestimated the power of microsofts updates.
