Hi , i am not a newbie nor am i a guru.

These things to try will not harm your computer. Have you downloaded the latest versions before ?  I am taking for granted that you have.

Have you tried logging into your browser as an administrator ? ( If you are the administrator of your computer ) i don't know your operating system , but have you run all of your " clean " programs such as your Anti-Virus , Malware , Adware , Spyware , etc. ?

Did you manually download MSN updates if you have Windows 10 because there was a huge issue of problems. if you have auto-updates set to let Windows update automatically then it's not that.

Have you recently downloaded updates on all the programs you have ? Please remember these are just things i check when something starts running differently then it did a minute ago or hours earlier or from the previous day ?

Today i started my pc and found it running very slow. I went into my programs ( in the Control Panel ) and found Avast Anti-Virus in my programs. i did not download it , so it came in with some other program or a new version to a program i have and i deleted it and also deleted it from my registry and my pc started running normal again. Again , these might mean nothing to your issue because i am not a wizard on solving computer issues , but i do just fine with what i know.

I see no one else has yet to suggest things to do , but there are experts that can tell you immediately what to do. I just gave you things to try that will not harm your computer , but always remember that any changes you make to your registry by mistake or just to try and fix issues to see if they work can bring massive problems where you will need an expert to fix it as it can very easily shut you down.

Hope i helped you a little and best of luck. i am sure others will send in their answers and it's very possible what i told you might mean nothing. just tring to help you. Don Barajas   : - )
