    Default Suddenly PC has got very slow

    Hi all,

    So by no means do I have a bad PC. I'll start off with the specs i3 6100, 1050 ti, 8gb ram. Yesterday it was working like a dream and now suddenly when I boot it up I get really weird slow downs and even to the point of when I go on YouTube that is stuttering so badly. It's not buffering it's just pure stutter/lag.

    I don't really want to do a full system reset does anyone have any ideas?

    Many thanks in advance!

    It may be downloading an update (Windows 10 1809 was re-released this Tuesday), but check the hard drive for bad sectors; HD Tune has a free version that can do that

    I'm also thinking it must be a HDD problem, diagnosed it first.

    It might just be the Spectre/Meltdown fixes stuff
    A Virus that is either malicious or just mining coins
    or as you suspected a dying HDD/SSD...
