Hey there. Sometimes if you are unsure as to what is causing your computer to all of a sudden be slow and sluggish it might be worth running a hard drive diagnostic tool. If you rule out a bad hard drive then it might be a good idea to format the hard drive and reinstall the operating system if you think it isn’t just one specific program causing the problem. To that end I have done a video that will show you how to use Seagate seatools to diagnose your hard drive and give you as close to a definitive answer as to which direction you should go in.
