Hello. I need help from someone who knows what I need to do.... My Compaq CQ60-615DX Notebook has just all of a sudden started running really slow for the past week. It all started last tuesday when I tried to log off and it had to install 22 updates. After the updates I uploaded some Zumba DVD's to my hard drive and then a DVD burning program. I thought the slowness was due to the Zumba and DVD burning software so I deleted the Zumba stuff from my hard drive and uninstalled and deleted the burning software. It was still running super slow. Then I did a full malware and virus scan and the malware found a couple things that it asked me to put in quarantine, so I did. After that it still wasn't working right so I did a system restore to before the time when it installed all 22 updates. It is working a little better but I can still tell something is not right. Basically what is happening is it takes a long time to respond to commands. Like I will click to open a new page for web browsing and it takes a full minute to open it up (or longer). Basically whatever I click on it takes a long time to respond. This is not normal for my computer. And sometimes it will work fine for a couple minutes, then just start randomly being slow again. I thought maybe it was my internet connection but my husband is on his laptop not having any problems and he was sitting right beside me. What else can I do besides a defrag cuz I am about to try that now? I have also emptied my trash can, deleted tons of stuff from my download folder, cleaned up my hard drive by deleting cookies and whatnat. I am not a computer savy person so anything explained in plain english instead of tech talk would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.
