    WE need a bit more information first: How much RAM do you have? Are you running a lot of programs in the background? Are you using a HDD(last time defragmented) or a SSD? What kind of CPU do you have( AMD, INTEL, ARM(Which are slow anyhow))?

    It seems I have lots of RAM. I think it was another ADware problem. I ran Windows Defender and I eliminbated 8 adware programs. I can't get rid of geekbuddy though.
