Hi,

Your problem is most probably caused by McAfee, because McAfee is known to cause a huge system slowdown. The forums are full with posts where people are complaining about a slow computer where McAfee is installed.

Hi,

You say that you are already having this problem for a year...
Even though you have McAfee on your other computers and it runs fine, this isn't the same case on every computer.
As I already said, the forums are full with it. Examples:

http://forums.spywareinfo.com/index.php?showtopic=107987
http://forums.spywareinfo.com/index.php?showtopic=107962
http://forums.spywareinfo.com/index.php?showtopic=107970

And here, you'll find a similar case as yours where the user also always had McAfee and never had any problems with it - so he didn't believe that it was actually his McAfee causing this.
http://forums.spywareinfo.com/index.php?showtopic=103141

Anyway, I could convince him to temporary uninstall McAfee as a test - and yes, it was indeed the cause :thumbsup:
So, if you don't test, you won't know... All I do know is that it is a known fact that McAfee may cause a huge system slowdown on some systems.
Also read this: What Really Slows Windows Down.
You can temporary uninstall McAfee and let me know if that makes a difference. Don't disable McAfee as this won't work. You really need to uninstall it.
If that didn't make a difference, then we'll have to search for other causes.

There are a lot of Antivirus and Firewalls I recommend though. :thumbsup:
Some great free ones as well. See in my signature below under AntiVirus Scanners and Firewalls for the ones I recommend.
For example Avira is a great free Antivirus and Comodo is a great free Firewall. They aren't such a resource hog either.

Good to hear :thumbsup:

What is a good cleaner I can download?

Not sure if you read my previous post where I actually already posted about Avira Antivirus and Comodo Firewall - but they are the ones I recommend since they are for free. And Avira is great in detection and removal. Comodo Firewall is a good firewall with a nice user interface.

Avira: http://www.free-av.com/

Comodo: http://www.personalfirewall.comodo.com/

Ofcourse you can also choose another Antivirus and Firewall from my links list here:
http://users.telenet.be/bluepatchy/miekiemoes/Links.html

Just make sure you install only 1 Antivirus and 1 Firewall, since more than one is not compatible and may cause a huge system slowdown.

Ccleaner is OK.

As for a registry cleaner.. I know Ccleaner has to option to clean the registry as well, but in general I do not recommend registry Cleaners.
This because some may rather damage than cleaning/fixing your registry. Many people believe that registry cleaning is required to make a system faster - well, this is not true.
Cleaning the registry won't really improve system performance anyway even though there are a lot of orphaned keys. If registry cleaning was really required, then Microsoft would have added this option in Windows already imho.
Only use it if you have basic knowledge about the registry and know if a certain key/value is safe to be removed or not.
So use at your own risk. After all, a corrupted registry is a corrupted Windows.

You may also want to read this thread why Registry Cleaners are not recommended.
