    If your running Windows 10, it could be that it is trying to update itself in the background. That will slow down everything. Just leave your computer on and let it do it's thing.

    If it isn't, I would recommend running the following free tools

    Junkware removal tool (JRT)

    https://www.malwarebytes.com/junkwareremovaltool/ --> look near the bottom for the download link

    Adware cleaner (ADW)

    https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/

    Malware Bytes (It's free, but you have to pay for the "premium" version)

    https://www.malwarebytes.com/

    As for antivirus, I would just stick with what comes with Windows 10 which is Windows Defender. Or, if you have Windows 7, use Microsoft Security Essentials which is also free.

    If you have Windows 10, there is no need for anything more than Windows Defender. Sensible browsing and knowing what you plug into your PC is even better than any antivirus.

    ive tried many antivirus programs and i find that AVG is still pretty good also ESET but what people have said already the stock ones that windows comes with is your best bet that's my opinion.

    A quick google search reveals that AVAST Antivirus is the best antivirus program period, I have personally been a user a AVAST for years now and I would most definetly recommend using it yourself!
