Hello,

I have been having problems out of my Dell PC for the past couple of weeks. It takes about 10 minutes for one program to start, some programs won't start at all. I pessed CTRL+ALT+DEL to see what was running in the background. To my surprise there were 70 processes going on. I downloaded Windows Startup Inspector and now I only have 33 processes going. My CPU usage is still at 100%. I tried to do a system restore, but it is unable to restore past the point of "Software Distribution Service 3.0". I did no download this software, but I am showing where it has downloaded everynight since October 2007. Please HELP!!!! I appreciate it.

Hello NEhelp and welcome to BC :flowers:

What is your operating system: Windows XP, Vista etc.? Software Distribution 3.0 is a Windows Update. Do you use Automatic Updates? That would explain how it downloads to your computer without you requesting the download. What is curious is that it keeps downloading. That indicates that it hasn't installed properly. Perhaps you should do a manual Windows Update and see if that will resolve the issue.

Here is a Slow Computer Guide to follow. See if this will resolve your slow computer issues and let us know how it works out.
