    Sound is Distorted and Computer Running Slower Than Usual


    Hi everyone,
    Lately my computer has been distorting sounds and been going slower than it used to. When I restart the computer, the amount of distortions/small sizzling sounds is at a minimum, but it increases as I continue to use the computer. I googled how to fix this and one of the suggestions was to run a system file checker. The result of the scan was that I have some corrupted files that the computer could not remove. I also go a sfcdetails.txt file that showed all the information in the scan. I was wondering if someone could look at this and tell me how to find the corrupted files/what I should do to remove the files. I have attached the sfcdetails.txt file and a screen shot of the SFC results right from the command prompt.

    Use this command Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth in the elevated command prompt then run the sfc /scannow command again.

    I did what you suggested and it seemed to have gotten rid of the corrupted files or at least fixed them, however, the problem still remains. Thank you for your response though.

    Temporarily uninstall Kaspersky reboot and see if any improvement, you could reinstall Kaspersky latter if you wish. I see by your specs you are running Windows 8, is this Pro or Standard, you may consider updating to Windows 8.1.

Solved CPU running at ~80% when computer is idling in Performance & Maintenance
Hello, I have had some issues with my laptop running very hot even when it's not used. I figured out that it was because of my cpu running at around 80% all the time. This of course, is causing a cpu idle temp of around 65c and a quickly depleted battery. The computer (a Sony VAIO SVS1513C5E)...
