    Urgent - Problem with laptop slows down

    Hi everyone...I am new here, just joined I am glad to be part of this great forum...

    I have a Lenovo Idea-PC laptop that I bought a year ago..It came with high specifications as follows:

    OS: Windows 8 64-bit (6.2, Build 9200)

    Intel (R) Core (TM) i5-3210M CPU @ 2.50 GHz (4CPU)

    8 GB Ram

    Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000

    GeForce GT 635M 1 GB

    Hard Disk 1TB

    Direct x 11

    It has been working fine since then; however, yesterday when I was watching a video on Youtube, I noticed that the video lagged or froze for half a second or so and then resumed...At first I though there was a problem with the Adobe Flash, but when I played a number of videos (HD and lower quality) the same problem occurred...

    I noticed that the video starts to lag or freeze for less than a second after playing any video for 1 minute and 8 seconds.

    I am not sure where the problem lies, I've tried to do a virus scan with my Kaspersky software, the results were positive.

    Can you please help me out cause I am unable to figure out where the problem resides..

    Thank you

    Thank you for your reply...In fact I have opened the Task Manager and under Disk it shows that the activity almost hits 100% although I did not open anything except for Google Chrome!!!!

    Any thoughts?
