Hi, I'm here in lue of my brother since he's not home. His computer has overnight without actually being used (But it was running) almost halted to a complete slowdown, it's struggling to do even the simplest things, such as browsing the web is a pain, it is loading slowly and choppy, it can't run games without massive lag and some websites, including microsoft is having troubles downloading items, I was trying to eliminate vcredists as a problem and directx.

Now I'm stumped and I can't really make out what the problem is, I initially thought it was a virus, I did a PC reset and kept nothing on that drive, booting up I'm still having the same issue, but monitoring the computer through both taskmgr and the resource monitor and I can't say that it appears to be a hardware related issue.
I ran chkdsk /f through CMD as an admin as well, didn't seem to come up with any issues neither.

I'm not sure what else to do, but I know the people on here have managed to solve some gnarly things and now I'm coming here asking for help.

Any ideas on where I can begin? 


Additional information, before doing the reset, I also tried doing a virus scan (Using a trial version of ESET NOD32 v9), granted very slow, I still tried.
it seemed unable to read any data, even the boot sectors, as if something was blocking it.

Thanks in advance.

Please start by running these free hardware diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html

IMO the memory and hard drive diagnostics are where you should start - but please attempt to complete them all.
