Hello ~

I have Windows XP Pro on a Dell latitude laptop.

My computer started running very slowly the last couple of days. I looked in Windows Task Manager to see what was going on and it said I was using 100%. So I went through and stopped several processes that I didn't need running. When I clicked one of them (can't remember what it was) I got the NT Authority window that said it was shutting down in X number of seconds. Instead of waiting, I did a hard shutdown. When I tried to reboot, it froze up. I tried starting in Safe Mode and it froze. I restarted again and after 3 minutes it finally let me log on. After I passworded in, it took another 5 minutes to get to my desktop. So I ran a system restore to a previous date that I knew was good. However, it is still very slow and there are some processes running that I don't know about and I think could be the problem.

Kaspersky hasn't picked up anything.

Thanks in advance for any help you can supply!
