The system seems to be running other things and not letting me do hardly anything. (it takes 15 minutes to get to the desktop) The mouse moves around the screen fine but if I click to start a program or menu I have to wait anywhere from a minute to 10 to see a response.

The windows perf monitor says I am using single digit percentage of cpu but I don't think it can see all that is going on.

I have to run in safe mode to get anything done.

I have run Malware tool, super spyware, and ccleaner, cleaned out temp files, disable unnecesary startup programs and deleted tracking cookies, but did not fix my problem.

Also, because of the problems in regular mode I am behind in vista updates (missing sr pack 2) and one month behind in makafee virus updates.

I have attached dds and gmer files, but had a problem running gmer in safe mode as there is no scroll bar to get down to the save button, so I used the copy button, is this what you wanted??

I also ran search and destroy's rootkit scanner and found the following (did not fix any of is as I was not sure about it)

Quick scan looks good all green.
deep scan found the following
File 89446.bpc c:\users\all user\microsoft\office\... No admin in ACL
File opal12.dat c:\users\all user\microsoft\office\... No admin in ACL
File CLDShowXini:Update.CL:$DATA c:\users\all user\cyberlink\... Unknown ADS

Thanks in advance

After reading the tutorial on slow pc performance, I ran the chkdsk with all the options and rebooted. This found 3 bad sectors with one being in one of the c:\windows subdirectories. After fixing this I got a big performance boost. I followed this up with a disk defrag and windows updates. The PC is running great now.

Close this issue out.
