My formerly quick-to-respond PC has, for some time, been frustrating me hugely as it takes GREAT PATIENCE on my part, waiting for most tabs, or pages in programmes, to respond.

It's been to the PC doctor and pronounced "well", so should be behaving better.

Internet browser is Chrome: many times even when there aren't many URLs open, it tells me "Page Unresponsive" with options to Wait or End Page.
We have Office 365 on all our devices. On many occasions either Excel, Word or Power Point will not open withouth the message "Not Responding".

I've developed the habit of now re-booting at least twice a day and clearing the cache daily, but really feel this should not be necessary.

Virus scans are conducted regularly. All unnecessary apps have been uninstalled. There appears to be ample space on the hard drive (116GB of 465GB).
We are sourcing external drives and USB to remove content off hard drive.

Any suggestions please?

You may also want to keep the Task Manager open and watch the performance tab to see if anything jumps when these situations occur. If you watch the processes tab, you can set one of the columns to show highest usage first in the list. If some utility was acting up or consuming resources, you might see it.

There have been some folks showing 100% cpu utilization on at least one core for just an audio process.

Une autre requête. Quel programme antivirus utilisez-vous?
[/CITATION]
Oui c'est bien la bonne question, un bon balayage complet avec symantec (Norton antivirus)
Et pour les Trojan, adwcleaner le meilleur !
