Hello. First of all, I am new here and this is my first post so please have patience with me
This morning I used my laptop (Compaq Presario CQ60 Notebook, Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2, 32-bit) and shut it down and packed it up as I have for the past year. Two hours later I boot it up again and it was tremendously slow after log in(It took 5 minutes to bring up task manager which stated that only 3%-7% CPU was being used). I reset it, and it did the same thing. I then booted it in safe mode and ran a complete virus and spyware check with Avast! and Spybot Search & Destroy. They both came up empty. I am currently using the same computer and it works at full speed while in safe mode, but not when I boot it up regularly.
If anyone could help it would be much appreciated!
