    Audio is distorted and computer is slower


    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. However, after doing the command Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth and then doing sfc /scannow, it appears the corrupt files have been repaired or eliminated. The problem of the distortions and slower computer still exists. I have attached the sfcdetails.txt file from the sfc scan with the corrupt files and a screen shot of the SFC results right from the command prompt. Thanks in advance to everyone who responds.
