Okay, so I got home, and clicked my mouse to bring my PC out of sleep mode. Windows 10 was on the usual sleep page with the date, some random background picture, etc. But when I clicked, it stuck there for like 15 seconds before it went up and off the page. And then I waited... and the login box didn't appear for like a minute. So I shut my computer down and restarted. While it was restarting, a little text thing came up under the blue windows icon, saying something about the discs, and that I could cancel it if I hit any key in X amount of seconds, so I did. I got to the main screen again, and it was a little faster, but still took like 30 seconds just to sign in. Now, after I sign it, it usually takes like a minute for all my programs to start up and be fully loaded and running. This time, it's been 10 minutes and they STILL HAVEN'T ALL FULLY LOADED. Several times, it said Windows has stopped responding. I tried opening task manager, and it took 3 minutes to open, and then immediately stopped responding. When I did, it said CPU was at 0%. It has finally loaded enough for me to be typing this post, but there are still background apps opening up while I'm typing. Programs that should've loaded 10 minutes ago. Help? What the hell is going on?
My PC is a Dell Studio XPS with Intel Core i7 from like 2009. I get that that's old, but even so, it has NEVER taken this long to start up until today. I don't think it's a virus. I use Vipre Antisecurity, so it probably would've detected it. in the meantime, just to be safe, I'm going to quickly download Hitman Pro and see if it detects anything.
