Ok so recently my PC has been acting weird. Like slow weird. Suddenly I can't play videos on YouTube 100% smoothly like I could before. At first I thought it was just a bad connection so I decided to try lower quality vids instead of the 720p I always use, but it's still laggy and choppy. Even on 360p. The family PC in the living room is fine of course so I doubt its some kind of connection thing.

Also I can play any video on YouTube on my Vita and it runs it beautifully. I'm also noticing some FPS issues with games. I have always known to not have anything run in the background when playing games but sometimes I leave the Stat Tracker for my fantasy football league in the background while I play Terraria and I couldn't even enjoy it because of how laggy it was.

And Terraria NEVER does that I play that 100% smoothly all the time. Even with Stat Tracker on. Also Sonic and All Stars Racing: Transformed I've noticed some FPS dips that haven't happened before either.

Honestly it's the videos that really annoy me atm. But if there's something simple that I can do to clean up my PC I'd greatly appreciate it.

I use Google Chrome. I also use the Turn Off the LIghts extension for videos. Idk if that matters though.

Edit: Ok now I'm worried I got a virus because I just played Terraria again and it's not smooth anymore. Got quite a bit of lag. Wtf is going on...
