Hello everyone! I hope this is the right place to post this issue and if not, forgive me :P
The problem I seem to be suddenly having is that any program I try opening shows up in task manager but will not actually load, if that makes any sense. For example, I ran OpenOffice Writer and it usually opens within seconds. Today, when I tried to run it, I could see it in task manager but it never loaded to my screen.
This happens with most programs aside from Firefox and some games. I have the following programs on my computer that help with security and maintenance:
Free ram optimizer
Advanced System Care 5
I have a Dell Inspiron N5030. The specs for it are as follows:

I can post a Hijack This log if need be. Scanned the computer for viruses, malware etc and found nothing. Am I overlooking something simple? Oh, and these programs do not run all at once, or stay active aside from Avast and Microsoft Security.
