Hi, my computer started running incredibly slow just a few days ago so slow infact that im writing this from my phone. Okay so i'm running windows 7 and i've tried everything i know which includes; mbam in safe mode,norton anti-virus, and i just tried sysytem restore but every time i try it says this message " system restore did not complete successfully. Your computers system files and settings were not changed. Details: an unspecified error occurred during system restore. (0x80071a91)" i've tried with every available restore point and the same thing happens is their anything else i can try?

Also i re-installed windows 7 about a month and a half ago everything was fine up until now and i dont have very many files so i dont think it is related to space.

Takes about 6-7 minutes after logging on for everything to be functional where before it would work almost instantly.

Thanks in advance if someone can help me.
