HP Laptop, Windows 10 Home (X64)

I am concerned my computer is infected, primarily because in the file access area, "Documents" duplicated itself several times (picture included). When I closed that window and reopened it, the duplication is gone. Other things I've noticed - internet is often slow to respond to commands and computer itself doesn't always respond - for example, if I type "allow remote access" into the Windows 10 search bar, the link for that listing appears, but when I click on it, nothing happens (still, I am able to access it by going directly to the control panel).

If the duplication of "Documents" isn't inherently suspicious then let me know and we can forgo pursing this further. I appreciate any help, thanks.
