Hi everyone I in the past two days windows kept pushing updates and then my computer began to lag when I was looking at my desktop like everything was running at about 5fps and being generally slow and laggy. I have scanned for malware = nothing, I scanned for viruses = Nothing, CCcleaner = Done 

Does anyone have any suggestions to help me here

I would say a vary fast and effective way to see if its a hardware or a software issue, you should get your windows 7 installation CD and do a full re install of windows. you can backup photos songs ext but do not backup programs. Once you have a new windows installed used it as if it was never slow. if it is still slow it's a hardware issue that can be your CPU, GPU, RAM and so on tell me how it works out for you

Thank you. I was trying to avoid that situation but now after doing a full re install everything is working perfectly and faster than ever. You were a huge help
