I haven't been using my pc much over the past week and have noticed that it is now slowed down to a crawl. Every programme I open, if and when it opens, comes up as not responding, including the internet and email and just in typing this my digits are 5 or 6 behind me, that's when my cursor doesn't disappear, or jump back to another position.
Don't know if this is malware or what the problem would be. I tried to copy & paste a few web pages into word yesterday, but the graphics didn't come with the print as they usually do. I had to save them and copy & paste them from the pictures folder instead. As a result, somehow, I have a diabolically overlarge graphic on my desktop which was part of one the webpages. Don't know how it got on the desktop, but it sure is a pain in the b*** to look at and makes it almost impossible to see my desktop icons.
It has taken me 15 minutes+ to type this, instead of possibly 5 minutes, so that gives some idea of how slow my pc is at the moment.
Any more information needed, please ask.
Thanks for reading and in advance for any help offered.
