    I went over every single driver in the list and looked for updates, there were some small ones and some major ones. That seems to have fixed it, thanks!! Shuts down, goes to sleep and restarts properly now :)
    Glad it fixed the issue and make it habitual of doing SFC scan every month
    open CMD as admin then type sfc /scannow hit enter and wait till it finishes
    its good practice to do it once a month

    It was fine right after I updated the drivers but now it's happening again

    Unfortunately this is not all that surprising

    You might look at other areas though, particularly running processes. However, I have no real answers for you as this has been an issue even Microsoft can't seem to fix.

    Good luck.

    Well I rarely use sleep mode, and I don't mind turning off my computer via holding down the power button, but I'm worried that that way of shutting down is harmful or just bad for the computer... Is it? Or it is completely fine?

    EDIT: I had a quick look at the processes in task manager, I noticed this one using the most memory:

    I have had issues with "svchost" in the past as well, where it slowed down my computer a lot so I had to find it in services and disable it. Do you guys think this one may be the issue again? I am not entirely sure myself what exactly svchost does, so I'd rather ask your opinions first.

    EDIT #2: It currently works fine right now, odd...

    As I understand it, an "svchost" is an executable that launches a Windows internal process that lives in a dll (or maybe also in other non-exe files). Therefor, there are almost always lots svchosts running. If a process is causing performance problems it very likely will be running under "svchost" but so will lots of other harmless (and important) processes. So unfortunately, seeing svchost running tells you nothing.

    Utilities like Process Explorer will show what is running under some svchosts, but not all of them.
