Minor problems turning into major headache!

Hi...my computer has ran perfect since the day I purchased it until about a month ago I decided to try to watch a movie (DVD) on it! I put the disk in and the message pops up on what action to take and of course after pushing to play the movie the movie doesnt play! So I went into the settings and tried to figure it out and still haven't but, I have managed to make the matter worse and have NO idea how! My laptop is running extremely slow, almost half my programs wont work like they are supposed to, and I can't get it to connect to the wi-fi/Internet (if it does it doesn't even work the way its supposed to!) On top of a few other things! Should I just reset my laptop or what should I do?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

@itsme_85 , Tara , You may have picked up a virus or malware, run your anti virus/malware protection, do a scan of whole computer. If that does not pick up a infection that is causing the issue, try a system restore to an earlier date when the computer was working good. If that does not fix it, you may have to do a fresh reinstall to get rid of the problem. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

@itsme_85, Tara, I personally use AVG anti virus free edition and MalwareBytes Anti-Malware free to use, that is all I have on my computer. I will post a link for you to check out various free virus/malware protection and if you would like to try one or two do so and if you do not like them just uninstall/remove. Some times they may pop up and try to get you to upgrade, I always just decline and stay with free version. Hope this helps. http://www.techradar.com/news/software/a...

==Thank you so much for your time==

Thank you for taking the time out to respond to my problem! I ran the spyware/malware protection that is pre-installed on my computer and it does in fact say that I have a few issues that need resolved but when I click to fix them it directs me to buy this kind of protection and that kind of protection and I for some reason can't help but to feel as if it is just a way for some company to make extra money for nothing...anyway so my question to you is do you think it would just be best for me to just simply back-up my pictures and all other things I need and just do a restart?

Again thank you for your time and im so sorry to have taken so much more of it!

Thank you and God Bless!!!
