Hi Judy,

can you post the make and model of the machine your using? Also was Windows already installed or did you install it yourself, if so was it a upgrade or custom install?

Some things you could try.

Ccleaner: Will remove old files and clean temporary folders.

CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download

Auslogics Disk Defrag: This will tidy up your hard drives although if your using SSD's don't use it.

Disk Defrag - Best Free Defrag Software For Your Hard Drive

Malwarebytes: Excellent at search & Destroy regarding malware.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - CNET Download.com

Make sure your Windows is fully updated by using the Windows Update utility found via the control panel. It's set to automatic by default but it's worth checking.
