Many virus add files to hard drives, so that would be the first thing I would look for

Antivirus software is no longer an option These days, it's a "must."

Aside from that, open your device manager and look for any yellow and black event icons, which may indicate a conflict between hardware devices.

Possibly, you may have a bad disk drive They can be problematic.

But better start with that virus scan.
