You know the search function in Windows? You click the icon in the bottom left corner, type something in, and results show up. Like in this case for example, Paint: https://i.imgur.com/9Ei7kOT.png
Well, I can't click my way into the program anymore! In order to navigate the results I have to use the directional keys on the computer, and in order to open the program I have to click Enter. If I try to open the program by clicking with the mouse, it just doesn't do anything. It's like it lags up.
Sometimes it doesn't work what so ever though, not even by clicking Enter, because it lags up in some weird way. The rest of the PC is functioning like usual, but the search field doesn't respond for maybe 20-30 seconds. And it certainly wasn't like this in the beginning when I first got my computer, a couple of months ago. Then things were running really smoothly.
So here's the question: Is this some type of virus perhaps? Or is it just Windows being Windows?
I've scanned by computer with Windows Defender, Malwarebytes, and even MWB Rootkit scanner. But I've come up with nothing. If it's a virus, it must be a really advanced yet pointless virus.
