As of a Couple Days ago, my computer has been suffering a strange problem. Many programs (Such as Gaming programs) that originally take up a good amount of CPU and Memory, now for some reason are taking up much, much more CPU and Memory than previously. Many Programs that once could run at around 20 FPS now run at less than 10 Fps, nearing 2 Fps. Even browsers such as Firefox appear to be taking up much more CPU than before.
I've run Scans from AVG, SpyBot S+D, and Ad-Aware, Each has only turned up a few minor Tracking Cookies and Worms, nothing that has resulted in a Fix of the problem
HijackThis dosen't report much that seems out of the ordinary, Aside from a 'Wormradar' Which I had deemed Unnneccesary and removed. I've also tried ending unnecessary Processes, though this does provide some of a boost, it's still not enough to be able to counter this problem.
My last fear would be if this is a Hardware problem, Which I really, really hope it isn't. This laptop I've bought 4 Months ago.
Acer Aspire 6930
Intel Core Duo CPU, 2.00 GHz, 2.00 GHz
