    a computer is too slow


    Hello,
    I guess there's a virus or something like that that slows the computer.
    what shall I do?

    That's a very good idea. Viruses can make the computer really slow. You should scan your PC.

    If no virus is found,why don't you try sfc /scannow? To do that,open a command prompt with administrator privileges and type:
    sfc /scannow

    Let us know about the situation.

    thanks for your reply.
    I ran 'sfc /scannow', it failed, so I followed some tricks and it was done successfully.
    I'm defragmenting it now, I'll restart and tell you later

    Do you have an anti-virus program?
    There's lots of good ones free online.
    When my PC starts acting up I run Malwarebytes, Superantispyware, an anti-virus remover then Ccleaner.
    All are free downloads.

    If this doesn't fix the problem I do a System Restore setting my PC back a few days before the problem started.
