How much memory do you have installed? I would download the SpySweeper trial and run a scan. You can uninstall it when your done. I would do the same with Microsoft Defender. Its free from their home page. Also, run a free Trend micro online scan in safe mode with networking. Run msconfig and remove some startup programs that dont need to start up. Post back results when complete.
