My computer has always had a somewhat long boot time (around 5 minutes), but once it boots it has been lightning fast. I was recently trying to fix the long boot up time issue by messing with MSCONFIG and turning off certain start up programs. Not only did doing this NOT help me, but now my computer is running incredibly sluggish. Programs take much longer to open, physical memory is around 75-80%, I have huge amounts of lag when trying to play world of warcraft (where I've previously had none), and I have a ton of processes (75+) running including multiple SCVHOST's that i dont remember having before. I've tried a system restore and I've also tried to restore my MSCONFIG configuration, yet nothing is helping. I've run malwarebytes and it turned up nothing for viruses Please help!
Also wanted to mention I have 6GB of RAM so a lack of RAM is definitely not an issue. I am running VISTA Home Premium 64bit.
And one more thing; my physical memory is around 75-85% constantly whereas before I mucked with MSCONFIG, it was around 40%.
