Computer performing way below expectations all of a sudden

Hello, My computer is performing way below expectations as of recently.

I have done almost everything from a system restore, chkdsk, /scannow, scanned for malware with my premium malware bytes, and still no solution to be found.

Running tests saying that my CPU has high back ground usage but task manager has nothing running in the background.

Computer is laggy, choppy, and the processing times for each program has tremendously decreased.

Any help is appreciated

Computer Specs:

Windows 10 "Pro"


ASUS Sabertooth Z97 Mark S

Nvidia Geforce GTX 980

HyperX 16GB RAM

Temperatures for all hardware (CPU) are all in great standing as well.

Everything in Disk Management is showing health (C:, Disk 0 partition 2, Disk 0 Partition 5, New volume (D:), and Recovery.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
