I have noticed that recently my startup speed has reduced. Also once my laptop starts it works ok with normal speed, but after being used for 4 to 5 hours it just stops responding or its response is so slow that after clicking on the start button i have to wait for 2 minutes before it opens. even a right click takes this much time.
the only option left for me is a hard reset. but when the computer restarts again, the speeds are normal and as they should be. The problem starts again after 5 hours of usage, and the cycle continues.
so.... any ideas as to what may be causing this???
I have avira antivirus free, regularly updated.
I have scanned my system with the latest ad aware 2008, it found nothing.
I have sygate firewall free installed
