I few days back my computer hit some trouble. Certain files necessary to boot and operate windows suddenly did "not exist." I figured it had over heated and maybe had some hard drive damage so after checking out the heat sink I tried a fresh install from the bios recovery options to see what would happen. It seemed to work fine but then after uninstalling some bloatware and reinstalling my wireless adapter (usb) it started going really slowly and everything I tried to use would just go none-responsive. The boot time was also ridiculously long. I checked the hard drive with no errors found and the same with the memory. When it goes none-responsive it's not using an inordinately increased amount of ram or CPU. It looks like it's idling normally, not maxed out at all but it freezes none the less. I tried reinstalling windows again with a similar result. Works fine straight away, no apparent hardware errors to be found and running smoothly. The second time I installed a favorite classic game, age of empires two, before installing the wireless adapter to see what would happen. It would freeze momentarily and intermittently during play, on a fresh install of windows and having only uninstalled some obvious bloatware. Then I tried installing a different USB wireless adapter to try to run the windows updates and the same thing happened as before. All of a sudden my computer is so slow and freezes so frequently that it is just unusable. What the hell?
