    Hello and welcome.

    First I would run a full updated scan using your Anti-Virus..

    Download and run a full scan using malwarebytes here is the link, and use the free version. Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download

    It this comes back clean then I would defrag, Disk cleanup, uninstall anything you really don't use, download CCleaner and use it about once every 2 months BUT do not use the registry cleaner this is where if you don't know what your doing you can cause a lot of problems.

    Go to Start and type in msconfig...

    If you have too many things checked they will cause your system to be sluggish.
    Uncheck items you don't want to have opening at the start up.
