Computer suddenly freezing

Please help!

My laptop (Compaq Presario CQ60) has suddenly gone very strange - the performance has significantly degraded in a matter of hours. I tried a system restore to a few few days ago, but it doesn't seem to have helped. Also, I just restarted the computer which took an incredibly long time to do - and the computer has loaded at a very slightly lower screen resolution - but everything seems to be running a bit better now.

Could someone advise me on what I should check first to try and get the laptop back to normal?

Many thanks!
Tom

Sounds like you've picked up a nasty. I would do a deep scan with Malwarebytes to start with and see what it finds.
