I've been having problems with my computer slowing down lately, Here's the situation... I haven't installed or downloaded any new data for a long time, so I'm assuming it's not a virus, and Ad-aware didn't detect any spyware on my hard drive. The programs I use just seem to be running slower for no apparent reason. When I checked Task Manager, there were no unknown programs running, but cpu usage was very low, less than 10%, even when I had 4 or 5 programs running simultaneously. It's almost as if something has put a cap on cpu usage.

Hi bluesky113, and welcome to bleeping computer.

Have you done the usual maintenance, defrag the hdd, clean out the dust bunnies, and run a scan with something other that Ad-aware?

How much RAM do you have, how large is your hdd, and how much free space do you have on the hdd?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
