I'll just jump right in, my laptop has been running a tad slower and has been hotter and louder even when not in use. Fairly often getting brief hang ups as if it's trying to process the info before letting me proceed. i.e. using any program, like browser or file explorer even will often result in a brief moment of locking up and stating [Not Responding]. Typically this occurs when starting the program or periodically throughout.
I've upgraded to windows 10 hoping it might alleviate some of the issues but no such luck. What's the easiest way to start testing different avenues for PC recovery? I've run some of the HitmanPro, CCleaner, Malwarebyes recently and it seems to help briefly but quickly goes back to loud fans running and sluggish response.
Thanks in advance.
