Hi everyone, I hope you can help me with my computer problem.
Okay, I have thise problem with my computer, where everything, and I mean EVERYTHING runs slow.
Windows takes a really long time to load, and Whenever I try opening folders or programs, it sits there for a really long time before opening it. However, after opening it, I can open it again instantly as normal, making me believe that its a hard drive problem of some sort or some other hardware problem rather than a virus problem. Safe mode takes a long time to start up, but once it loads, it runs fine. However the next time I run safe mode, even safe mode runs really slow. My mom says that this happened to her when she was using this computer before and system restore fixed it. I have ran system restore as well and tried several dates. however none of them worked. My hard drive still has 433/1000 GBs left on it. I think windows may be corrupted? However, in task manager, proccesses seem to be using 2x the amount of CPU K that they used before this happened. Windows Explorer is using 44,000 k instead of 23,000 k that it used before. My CPU usage is at 50% just by sitting at the windows desktop. Also, CPU-Z hardware monitor does not show any hardware on it. I have also tried disk defragment. I do use this computer very often, and I hope its not a hardware issue from being used so much and its just a software issue.
Here are my Specs:
OS: Windows 7 64bit Version 6.1.7600 build 7600
System Manufacturer: HP-Pavillion
Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q8400 2.66 Ghz 2670 Mhz
GPU(probably unrelated, but just in case.): Nvidia Geforce GT 9500
Any help appreciated. Thanks.
