I have a:

Intel Pretuim Dual CPU T2370 @ 1.73GHz
1GB Ram
Vista SP2

I have ran MalwareBytes and there is nothing on my system.

I attached Autorun.txt

Vista is slow to open files and folder.

I have ran CCleaner and Defragged my drives.

at this point I am clueless at what might be running that is causing it. when I run in safe mode it seems to run faster like before.

I have not downloaded anything new in the past few weeks

For a smooth ride, Vista needs at least 2GB of RAM.

It doesn't mean anything.
It may run fine initially, but after a while of usage it'll start feeling lack of another 1GB of RAM.

when I run in safe mode it seems to run faster like before.

...which is the proof. Many startups don't run in safe mode, that's why it runs faster.
Simply speaking, 2GB of RAM with Vista is a must.

AVG surely adds seriously to your load.

Another thing, you can try is to create new topic in "Am I Infected?" forum to make sure your computer is clean.

Broni hope you don't mind me posting my 2 cents here.

As you use your computer it uses more and more RAM, and once your RAM is all used it the processes start paging to a file call pagefile.sys located on your hard drive. This will slow things down, as your hard drive is not as fast as your RAM is. The more RAM you have the less paging goes on.
