For a while now my laptop (a toshiba qosmio x770) has been running very slowly. I open something it takes quite a while to open it, usually if I'm watching a movie (not online) with either VLC or MPC it stutters sometimes till a point where even windows stops responding. Haven't tried running a game in ages as it started to be impossible, even football manager lags a lot although it used to run BF4 at high settings before.
Using the perfomance bar in task manager and another program I noticed my disk was running quite oddly, every second it changes from 0% to 100%, back to 0%, and always this loop, even if it is idle. Yesterday it was even impossible to open a movie file as it just completely stopped while opening.
Anything I can try to check if the problem is really the disk or anything else?
It has loads of space, wouldn't be because of that for sure as I cleaned it quite a lot.
Ccleaner is a must hve for me. In reality after I run it it gets a bit faster but not for long. Actually every time I open my laptop I kinda have to run both Ccleaner and Avast otherwise it barely works.
Hi Nramos, a couple of housekeeping tips , run dxdiag and then type memory diagnosis into the search box and let the program run. You could also run super anti spy as this sometimes finds bits that anti virus misses. If you run antimalware bytes and it finds anything you must rerun the scan until it finds nothing , this is because spyware and pup's have multiple segments to them.
