My computer is constantly "working" the noise it makes when you open a big program is constant..I have notice a drop in speed also..I am using SAS and MalwareBytes anti malware also kaspersky all are up to date and Ive scan with all three recently i get little tool bars and cookies but nothing major....It just seems like my computer is always working and Ive gotten a bit slower..I was thinking of the combofix's and HiJackthis's but I am not that advanced.

Thanks in Advance for any help

Download Process explorer

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb896653.aspx

When you run it, use the File at the top, then save as Procexp.txt to your desktop, copy and paste into a reply please.

Also download this program

http://www.aommaster.com/Files/Tools/HardwareInfo.exe

When run it will save a HardwareInfo.txt to your desktop if you saved the program there.

Paste it also

You need to move at least 50 gigs of data off of your system drive if not more.

It takes 15% free space for windows to even get a start at defragging the files.

Not that I would trust with my system files in such a critical situation, I have seen systems like yours, if not adrressed now, that start failing to boot, develope file errors and have to be reloaded or cleaned piece by piece.
