My computer has slowed down without any direct causal event - it just started one afternoon - and constantly gives me "program not responding" messages in the program bars.
Currently working in safemode- networked, which is fine. When I ran Malwarebytes in normal mode it never finished after 12 hours, in safe mode (deep scan it took 1 hour)
I have run Malwarebytes, Vipre, AVG 8.5, Windows defender, spybot search and destroy, and none of them show any malware.
I have Vista business (32) sp1 on a lenovo T60P with a core 2 (7600) 2.33 ghz processor and 3 gigs of ram. I have about 30 out of 80 gigs free on the SATA hard drive.
I have disabled indexing, I have gone through all the start up programs and also processes in task manager and eliminated many of them, I ran chkdsk I have defragmented and run diskcleanup the CPU usage is almost always 80%+ system idle process
I have turned the laptop upside to shake out any debris.
-Suggest other tests
-tell me what might be happening here.
Given that it is fine is safe mode I figure that there has to be either an infection or a conflict somewhere. However, no evidence of malware.
I am about to wipe the computer and install windows 7, but I am sure i will lose data that way despite having backed up. (just will forget where it is) and will ahve to reinstall all my programs.
