Thank you for your prompt replies, Kevin@GenTechPC and Prostar Computer! I have updated the DoubleShot software and after it was done the connection became limited ("Wi-Fi doesn't have a valid IP configuration" error was found). I fixed it by manually inputting the IP address and DNS server address in the TCP/IPv4 with the cost of the Killer network being offline. I can only suspect the cause for such a thing to happen. The report from AIDA64 shows 1% wear level. I have considered going with a system refresh before but the fact that many programs including a number of games will be deleted has stopped me until now. I may just have to do it soon enough. I am not sure what "removing running any system cleanup utilities" means. I downloaded those and scanned my PC, scanned all discs and cleaned whatever I was sure I wouldn't need.
