In the last probably 48 hours I've noticed significantly increased process time to open applications such as Word, IE Explorer, and other basics. Trying to ctrl-alt-dlt to see what is hogging isn't providing me a clear picture and even that is sometimes lagging/bogging down so much that it seems impossible.
I've noticed my Internet Explorer memory usage for a single tab is hovering around 300,000 sometimes..Not sure if that is important/high/normal.
I'm operating in safe mode now and things are ok but obviously I need to run regular. Today I ran Malwarebytes after updating it. It only found tracking cookies. I've also run SuperAntiSpyware and it found none. I use AVG2011 Free version and it updates automatically. I can't pinpoint one certain thing that I may have done that would cause this.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
