    PC lags after gaming for 2 years

    If your card was damaged then the performance would be the least of your problems. Try doing what basher has suggested. Laptops tend to suffer form heat problems, especially if they're clogged with dust.

    Has anyone tried Win 8.1 Preview

    I'm running the "official" version at the moment. I like it so far, a definite improvement. Although, there's no way I would pay for this much needed update. A ton of customization options have been added.

    Think my comp has malware..

    With all due respect, I strongly suggest against using this software. At first glance it appears "fishy". It will probably nag you into buying it. Just use free software or, like David Bailey has suggested, do a restore point or a refresh.

    I encourage you to install Malwarebytes in Safe Mode, then do a full scan. That should resolve your issue.

    VLC now being targeted by Movie Chiefs

    People tend to resort to piracy when the delivery is bad. For example, people in certain countries cannot buy or watch certain things so they resort to piracy to get the content they want. If the delivery system is good, then piracy tends to decrease. Source.

    Creative Sound Blaster-Z Headphone Audio

    I gave up on that sound card centuries ago. Drivers were absolutely terrible in addition to the insult to software programming that the control panel is... I have no idea how anyone can deal with that. I thought about getting a different sound card but don't see why I should bother. The...

    Curious, why use three different scanners to accomplish one thing? One complete scan with Malwarebytes should accomplish what you want.

    Win 8 pro slowing Down

    A disk defrag won't produce very noticeable results today. Our hard drives are fast enough not to be bogged down by "clutter". It's worth trying though... How much free space does your hard drive have? A hard drive can slow down when there isn't much free space available on the hard drive.

    Win 8 pro slowing Down

    I agree. I would hesitate to do that unless I covered all possible options. Honestly, aside form a clean install, I'm a little stumped. Hardware is fine, running processes are good. I don't believe you have an infection that you're not aware of. Another guess I would consider is you running...

    Win 8 pro slowing Down

    Everything looks okay... your running programs are not an issue then. Take my previous suggestions into consideration. You can still try to check for a computer update, and a complete computer scan with Malwarebytes.

    One more thing, if you wish to test a piece of software without compromising your computer's security, try out Sandboxie. With that program, you can run software in an isolated environment.

    The discussion is still about exploiting a third-party's software (FlyFF). This is not allowed I believe. The best suggestion I can give in this situation is for you to avoid anything to do with these programs. Those comments and "reviews" are very easy to engineer. You're asking for trouble...

    If you don't mind, can you post a screenshot of you task manager? Like so... Looking at your hardware, your computer seems powerful enough. This is not a hardware issue. Check to see if you have any additional updates in Windows Update. Are you able to install Malwarebytes? I don't trust...

    Minecraft Server Help?

    Hello Sammy37796, apologies for the delayed response. Not sure about the other stuff, but port-forwarding is interesting... it "opens" ports for things to go through. Think about it like a valve that lets water through. First, you need to have a static IP address (address that doesn't change)...
