Sometimes, my computer stops working, and starts working on not working. Get me?
Sometimes, on standby, it's using way more memory than it should - rundll.exe alone is using up 1 gig of memory.
It's quite annoying when you have to cut the power to your pc to use it.
Because it gets so lagged you can't even ctrl-alt-delete.
I do have a hunch though. Some feature or other tells me that 'These drivers are causing windows to resume slowly'.

This is what it looks like.
The drivers are two instances of Intel Graphics Kernel Mode Driver, filename igdkmd32.sys.
The other is Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver Framework Reflector, filename WUDFRd.sys.
So these could possibly be the causes of my grief. However Windows just tells me that if I don't use them, then I should remove them.
I'm pretty sure I need my graphics drivers though. So what can I do? Uninstall/reinstall? If that might work, where do I get the files from?
Or do I just update them? Idk where to go to do that either though.
I'd really appreciate someone's 1337 guidance as to how to solve my problem. It can be non-1337 too though.
Thanks in advance.

The problem solved itself after uninstalling a few suspect programs.
I mean, it's still pretty slow but it's also still running Vista so...
Sorry to be of trouble to you.
I have a much worse problem now on another computer :/ so I'm not too worried about it anymore.

Vista has nothing to do with your computer being slow.

Post the info requested by Dan.
If that checks out, most likely, you're still infected.
