About a week ago my computer suddenly became painfully slow (to the point that the startup and shutdown sounds stutter). CPU usage bounces around 50% without anything running, but the computer works perfectly fine in safe mode. There were no changes or updates that proceeded the issue.

I have run multiple scans with my anti-virus software (trend micro) after updating to the latest definitions in both safe mode and normal startup, but it has not found anything. I have run a system restore back to before the issue occured to no avail. I have attempted to determine the source by modifying my startup programs and services through msconfig, no sucess. Giving up and hoping for some help!

Thanks,

Sean
