The problem came last week. I always leave windows update activated and to automatically download and install updates, the thing is that las tweek I was in my pc and it became to lagg A LOT. So i was like... Mmm let me restart it... And in the restart button it said: "Update and restart" so well, I left the computer install ONE update that took about 1 hour to install. After finishing my computer was slow as hell for loading at startup (Never had this problem before). So I was mad and I made all these st*pid stuff of cleanning my temporary files, etc. etc. and for the last thing I made an optimization of the HDD with Raxco Perfect Disc. It was "better", but after using my pc for a couple of hours (I always close it when I don't use it and wake it up when I use it again) it extremely laggs as hell, even if I press Ctrl + L Shift + esc it takes like 40 seconds to load the Task Manager (It opens but freezes for like 40 seconds). This happened just after windows update. Whats wrong!? Since that day I have never: *Never installed a program *There are no new tasks or programs at startup *I don't use an antivirus that laggs my computer (just W Defender), but please, don't comment it's a virus because it's not *Never updated a driver or software. I haven't install anything since that day. *Don't tell me I have to make some maintenance because I already did it. *Leave windows update waiting for a patch: My computer installed again another ONE update that took about 30 minutes. Didn't fix anything. I disabled Windows update and I gained a lot of "performance" since that. The problem is very annoying. If I'm in the facebook app of W8.1 it crashes and freezes. It really takes a long time to try to get back to the Start Menu. If I'm in youtube (Using any browser. I use IE, Comodo or Firefox) a message appears every time and crashes my video. The reason of message: "Shockwave Player crashed" and any of the browsers craches too. When I play Minecraft or Lord Of Shadows 2 it laggs, making like pauses in the game movements, It just freezes, JUST FREEZES! The music player of W8.1 app crashes and can't close it. It keeps playing music :/ Windows explorer sometimes takes like 30 secons to open a FOLDER. Why is this happening? I don't want to spend hours reverting in System Restore Point or make again a Clean installaton of Windows. I have a lot of programms and stuff to backup. :(
