Default Somehow I've lost many files--

My computer is slower than Christmas. Tonight I clicked on "Libre Office," the writing program I use instead of MS Office. I don't recognize anything.
What do I do other than take the computer to the shop?

I've shut the computer down. It must have taken 5 minutes for it to shut down. My anitivirus program (Avira) wouldn't shut down. Start-up took several minutes and I still can't find my files.

It could be a thousand different things. From a virus or malware, to a failing hard drive.

If you aren't computer savvy, take it to a legit computer shop (NOT Geek Squad).

Avira: Did you install their System Speedup also? You could have tons of browsing history and cookies slowing down your system too.
