Hello, I have been having an issue with one of my computers for a while now. I get lockups with various programs such as photoshop, indesign, corel, excel and a few others. I also have issues with the computer being unusable for about 15 minutes after reboot. I run Avast for virus scanning and frequently run malwarebytes. I keep up with windows updates as well. I recently did a boot time scan with Avast and found a few trojans. I then ran many other programs listed here such as adwcleaner, jst, rootkitremover etc. When I scan with everything I have now comes up clean yet I am still having the odd issues. They have been slowly getting worse over the last 2 years since it was built. The computers specs are as follows:
256 corsair force ssd
128 corsair force ssd (for Abobe scratch disk)
By now I would have just formatted and started from scratch but that is currently not an option. I am wondering where to start beyond what I have done already. Thank you in advance.
Also, I just noticed by poking around in the Avast Component Status I found that it has blocked 124,593 viruses in the last 30 days.
