Hi there. My computer has been lagging very hard recently and checking the Task Manager I have noticed that I am using at a minimum roughly 3GB of memory and my CPU usage is fluctuating between 25% and 100%. Any thought about why this is happening? Not to mention that multiple games which I have installed that have been running perfectly fine for months prior are now failing to open. Thanks!

what is the total ram of your disk? if it is 4gb then maybe the games you have installed require more powerful ram such as 8gb ram or 16gb ram.

I scanned everything but unfortunately the Zemana Scan kept on crashing at around 33% so all I could do was resolve the files it had found to be infected by then.

what is the total ram of your disk? if it is 4gb then maybe the games you have installed require more powerful ram such as 8gb ram or 16gb ram.

I've had 8 GB of RAM since I built this PC in 2012 and haven't had any problems running any games.
