Hello, I have recently been having the issues of a unusually long Startup starting at the black "splash" screen to when my desktop becomes usable, the time is roughly 7 minutes to start up. along with that, my CPU usage has been very sensitive to more then one program running, a example is my internet browser and windows media player open, normally these two programs open at once would not do anything to the preformance of my PC, but when I have WMP open, the music that plays is choppy, and jerky. I have no idea if I have a virus, corrupt files, or faulty hardware. I have noticed this message in my eventvwr.msc under system "The driver has detected that device \Device\Harddisk0\DR0 has predicted that it will fail. Immediately back up your data and replace your hard disk drive. A failure may be imminent." however, I have done chkdsk and gone into the BIOS at startup via F10 and done disc checks, which both the quick and comprehensive passed, so I don't belive my hardware is faulty. But I am worried, as this preformance in my PC is unusual and I don't know if it is a virus, adware ect. or a damaged file. I have tried system restore, but it says that it is unable to do a system restore after the restart, which takes along time as mentioned above.
here is my system info, and a hijack log I can post if needed.
I run a HP Pavilion dv8000
1GB of RAM
