OK here it goes. My computer has suddenly started to run really slow after I updated my AVG and downloaded the most recent windows updates. My computer is an HP 2.4 GHZ dual processor with 4GB ram, running vissta. I am running AVG 8.0.200. I don't beleive this is a virus of any sort because we are very carful about the site we visist, we never download fron the internet and I have used and updated AVG since I purchased the computer. However, When I updated AVG mant times it locks up all togethter and I need to restart, then the computer will not work properly and I have to restore to a date before I updated AVG. Since my last update yesterday the computer ois running slow again and when I go into the task manager my proesses are fine and my programs are fine but I noticed ( this also heppend in the past) that I can't get into the services tab. If I click on the services tab it just locks up the computer. I also noticed that the computer resources shows that the CPU usage is over 60 % sometimes spiking to 90% yet nothing is running. If I try the computer just locks up. It seems to me that some service is running and creating ahuge usage problem yet I can't get into it nor do I know whcih service I should stop.
any help would be appreciated.
