Why is my computer so slow (read details)?

I have a samsung laptop that has 500 gb storage, 4gb ram, and 2.5ghz i3 processor and for some reason it's still slow. I use a defrag software very often and I'm not using much of my storage. Even though I have several anti-virus/malware programs that I run, I still can't think of any other reason for the problem than something like a virus that must've gotten into my computer. I just don't understand how with the virus programs I have. I have already taken my computer to someone before and they were able to fix it (there were viruses) because it was really slow, and now the same thing is happening again. When I try to open my games nothing happens, even with Razer Game Booster. Also when I click log off, sleep, lock, etc. nothing happens. I spent a lot of money on this computer and I really need a solution to the problem that will keep my computer running fast before it's too late. I'm afraid that this is just the start of my computer shutting down completely and never coming back on (i've seen this happen before) and I need a solution fast.

Some anti-virus programs actually give you viruses, and also im sure that some of the games you have downloaded are slowing down your computer by taking up space and giving viruses.

Personally I use a program called Comodo anti-virus, i have had it for a few years and havent gotten a single virus from it.
