    This could be as meaningless as saying "Sorry, we had a glitch, please try again", or it could be more serious.

    However a system restore is not what you need to fix a slow-running computer. You need to clean your cache and temp files along with registry errors and other gunk that build up after long periods of use.

    One of the best things for that would be downloading this:

    Download and Run this cleaner immediately and then once a week there after, or so, depending. Be sure to click RUN each time you see it and not SAVE.

    To use it, click Analyze, then Clean and you're going to be amazed at the difference when you're finished. There's nothing to worry about, it's not going to harm your computer in any way.

    Good luck. ~m~

    You didn't mention what OS you have. Anyways try this :

    Method 1

    If you have any security softwares installed, disable them temporarily & check if the issue persists.

    Note: Ensure to enable your anti-virus back on the computer after you finish these steps.

    Method 2

    You may also run System File Checker [SFC] scan on the computer which will replace the missing or corrupt files. Then check if the issue persists.

    a). i. Type cmd in start search box.

    ii. Right click on cmd in the Program list and then select the option Run as administrator.

    iii. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.

    b. Type the following command, and then press ENTER:

    sfc /scannow

    There may be any shell extension (a right click option appears for files/ drives) which isn't functioning properly. Uninstall the concerning program from your computer, or deregister the shell extension from the system registry.

    A system file required to run Windows can be missing. It may be accidentally deleted, moved or renamed. In such case, expand its original version to stop the problem you are currently getting.
