Hello I am new here not sure how things work here but i am hoping someone here could help me fix my problem. I have a few computers and mainly use this one (lenovo G50-45 with Belgian French keyboard). Yesterday I did a reset of the PC and it seems it only made it worse. Google chrome keeps freezing and crashing, everything else i use is really laggy and i don't know what is causing this problem...I thought some problems were the cause of the problem but i dont have any of these programs downloaded after the reset and it is worse than before the reset... If someone could tell me where the problem is coming from and how i can fix it i would really appreciate it. Cheers

go to safe mode with networking active. download either malwarebytes anti-malware or comodo internet security. update to max and full scan.

it is not a reset until you format c: then reinstall windows. after that, the malwares from your other partitions jump in and reinfect. that is where malwarebytes and comodo comes in.

oh really? I find it really strange, i had problems because RAM consumption was too high before and that happened after an in place up grade, now i did the reset and i get even more problems....!!! It seems the more i try to fix the pc, the worse it becomes..now you're telling me that my pc is being affected by other partitions? which partitions? I only have c partition and my drive G: is an external hard drive and it is on...I have a lot of cracked programs there but i dont know which one is causing the problems, maybe it is something else, idk....

 

I am not denying what you said, i just wish i had some feedback from some professionals as well and tell me in details and more accurately what needs to be done since the inplace upgrade made it worse and the reset only made it even worse than it already became.....everything is so slow and laggy....i cant even believe it

who is to say i am not a professional or an expert? to see which services use up most of your power. open task manager during the usage spike, right click on svchost.exe, the one that has high cpu and ram usage, click on go to services.

You mentioned that the RAM consumption is too high in your computer. The culprit here is the malwares/virus. First of all, enter in the Safe Mode with Networking. Now, uninstall any unwanted programs from your windows. In case your PC is infected with Malwares, you'll see unwanted programs or even unnamed programs. Remove them and then install any Anti-Malware program. 

 

Scan all drives in your computer with the Anti-Malware/Antivirus program and then clean the virus/malwares if found any.

 

Now, reboot into the normal mode and hopefully you can use your computer without any lag.
