My compaq laptop suddenly slowed to a crawl. I usually leave it on over night to download, and 2 nights in a row it shut off unexpectedly while I was asleep. Then 2 days ago I decided to clean it up, (ccleaner, spyobt, ad-aware, full avg system scan with newest definition) and it was extremely slow. Windows was also telling me that the security center wouldnt work and avg was telling me that it had no active components. I went ahead and started it in safe mode and ran avg again and it found nothing. I looked and couldn't find anything weird in services. And then all of a sudden my internet and stuff wouldnt work and was telling me the service wasnt running that I needed. So I restarted windows with all the services running and everything works now, but it is still way to slow. Another random thing, ogg direct show filter keeps opening up, even though I have it unchecked in msconfig and havent opened any videos. The computer is... damnit, I cant even open the system information now. i think its a dual core, 1.73 or something, 3gb ram, running windows vista home premium. Sorry if any of that sounds like i was rambling.
