Help with Glitchy Computer
by BucklerTN - 4/16/12 10:06 AM
I built my own comp last summer and up until now it has worked flawlessly. However, it is currently running very slowly. Here is a breakdown of the main issues:
-Web Pages load slowly half the time (like a snail)
-ES:Skyrim closes unexpectedly quite frequently (I'd say it averages 4 times in an hour of play)
-Entire computer will run slowly while the mouse shows the comp is working (takes 30 seconds to minimize web page, etc)
-Once when it was running slowly I went to shut it off and went to the blue page that says "Logging Off" where it stayed for about 15 minutes then changed to "Shutting Down", which I ended up shutting down manually after waiting another 20 minutes.
The two only two things of significance that have happened recently (concerning my pc) is that I have been downloading several mods for Skyrim and my comcast internet said I needed to check for a DNS Bot malware. Skyrim ran glitchy after installing a particular mod, but still ran glitchy after uninstalling that same mod. And I went through the fix it procedure for the malware and my comp came up clean.
So any ideas on how I can get my baby up and running smoothly again? I know this isn't a lot of info to go on, but any help would be appreciated.
