    Computer Crash and so slow that I can't login.


    Specs
    Windows 8.1
    MSI Motherboard
    i5 intel core processor
    GTX 660 2gb graphics
    8gb RAM
    1 TB Hard Drive


    Problem



    So basically, I was playing a game called ARMA 2 OA with some friends and then my computer started going really slow. I did the standard ctrl alt del, however, nothing happened. My system became very slow to the point where hover indicators and clicking wasn't receiving any responses. I then decided to hold the power button until my computer restarted. After I waited for a full minute I started my PC back up. It loaded as normal as over but when I went to type in my password, the characters were slow at showing up on the screen and stuttering. I pressed the login button and it went on a "Welcome" loop for about 10 minutes. I restarted my PC and waited longer. This time when I try to login halfway through typing my PC freezes and takes me back to the colorful start up screen where I click it and try to login again. It continuously freezes over and over every time I do it. Thank you for reading and please help I would like to get back to gaming
