Hello, guys please help me. I have had this problem many times with my new computer ( h9-1000cs), but every time this problem got resolved by itself after couple of days. This time the problem didnt resolved itself after a week. Basicly, one day when i was starting computer it suddenly started to be slow. It takes approximately 15 minutes to start up (normally it takes about 15 seconds) and when it does it is terribly slow. I cant play games or watch videos because it is so slow. Thanks

Thank you for response. I bought my computer a year ago. I am not sure if i did it correctly but i dont see any yellow exclamation marks or unsigned drivers. I deleted the preloaded security program and installed avast antivirus. Also, I dont have Trusteer Rapport running on my computer.

Yes, thats my computer. I am connected to the internet by a wire, but i dont think thats the problem because internet is running smoothly, only the windows is slow.

Thank you I tried that chkdsk, but it didnt do anything. I will try to reboot it in a few hours when i will go to sleep. My windows defender was already disabled. I have microsoft security essentials along side avast. I have java and flash up to date and old ones have been deleted

When you say chkdsk didn't do anything did it just show up as 'clean'? Had someone's laptop recently with similar problem of slow booting and general slowness. After a lot of faffing about found that the Sata connection on the hard drive wasn't quite true. Reconnected it and the laptop was fine.

Thank you for reply. I am not saying it came up as clean. I didnt really had time to read the whole report because it disapearred after few seconds.I think it corrected some errors, but it is still acting the way it was before. I am not really sure what Sata connection is. What am i supposed to do?

As this is a problem that you've had before, which has then mysteriously cleared, I would be inclined to check ALL your physical connections inside the desktop box. And while you're there give it a good clean with a paintbrush and hoover nozzle to rid the cooling fins and fans of any dust build up (which can cause overheating). Power off (but power lead connected to provide an earth), remove and replace all the connections to the motherboard and drives (both ends - the aim is to clean the connectors), and gently prise out and slide back each of the memory modules (don't forget anti-static precautions, ground yourself first). Same with graphics card, and give that a brush as well. Don't forget the case, psu and processor fans (it may be as well to check these are all working). It won't do any harm and has worked for me in the past when I've experienced an intermittent slowdown.
