Malware Forum Discussion with m0le

Hello all,

My computer is ruining my life (okay.. that's a little dramatic... but in all honesty it REALLY sucks right now), so any help anyone can offer would be GREATLY appreciated!

My computer (at work) has been running VERY slowly for a while now, I was assuming it was just a RAM issue, but m0le said it shouldn't be and I should check here for any answers... I'm not exactly sure what I should include on this post, but if anyone has any specific questions I'd be more than happy to answer any of them as quickly as possible!

The main problem, as my "topic description" states, is that every time I attempt to multi-task my computer pretty much freaks the bleep out... It lags, flashes screens periodically, and then does that thing where it makes your window look all ghost-y and u can't click anything cause it's "thinking"... a few moments later it'll either crash or just start working... while having it work after a few moments of "thinking" isn't the ABSOLUTE WORST it really does add on a lot of extra time to my work day, not to mention it's just irritating lol, I'm sure someone here can agree!

Anyway, like I said, I'm not sure what information anyone would need to help me w/this... but please do not hesitate to ask and I'll try to respond as quickly as possible!

Thanks everyone!
Ash

Have you checked task manager for CPU usage (for a specific program) and for available RAM. If your CPU usage is low and you have enough RAM, then you can try downloading SpeedFAN to check your system temperatures.

1. Please download MiniToolBox and run it.

Checkmark following boxes:
  • List last 10 Event Viewer log
  • List Users, Partitions and Memory size
Click Go and post the result.

2. Download System Information for Windows (SIW free version)
No installation required.

After it scans your computer, navigate to Hardware>Sensors and post all info from there.
