Lag whenever I load browser or games

  Andre.w 17:18 30 Jul 2018

Hello! I apologize if this is posted in the wrong part of the forum; this is my first time using something like this.

My pc, for the past two weeks, has been lagging every time that I open either my browser (I have tried several browsers to pinpoint whether it was specific to one type) or any game.

I have tried several methods to reduce lag and examples of this are as followed; SFC, scanning for malware (in safe mode and out of safe mode), closing unnecessary programmes that run at startup and using cache cleaner. Overall, nothing has helped.

Information that is important is as followed; AMD Phenom II x4 840 Processor 3.20 ghz. 32 bit with 8gb ATI Radeon HD 5400 Series

I apologize; I'm not the best with computers! Thank you to anyone reading this.
