When I restart my computer, everything works great and efficiently.  However, after a couple days my internet browsing, plex usage and downloading start to slow significantly.  When I restart my computer again, it works normally.    


I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium


Dell XPS 8300


Intel Core i5-2300 CPU @ 2.80 GHz


12.0 GB RAM


64 bit operating system


Samsung SSD EVO 500 gb




I ran rkill, malwarebytes, adwcleaner and hitmanpro.


Adwcleaner and hitmanpro found some items and I cleaned it.  (sorry didn't save the logs; regret it now).


I added 8 gb of RAM as well.


I dusted the inside of my computer.  


Still seem to be running in this pattern of restart computer.  Works fine for a couple days.  Then plex usage, internet browsing and downloading really slow down.  


Thanks for any help with this.
