about a few weeks ago i started seeing my copmuter running soo slow! i have windows 7 and had upgraded to IE 9, which may have been my first mistake. But Everything seems to be running so slow, clicking on a folder to open will take a minute, and windows EXPLORER seems to crash often. I also see the little timer all the time on my mouse. I have to often terminate my programs (via task manager) i do have an antivirus and a few programms running in the background (that i know about) but have had them for a while. I did also run all my spyware, virus, malaware programs to check and they all come back fine. Even the FULL scan which takes some time. I know i could probably wipe the hard drive and start over but thats a last resort. I also have Hijack this and not sure if that will help. I can post my log file if you want. I have tried a clean boot and that helped a little, i "disabled all" things except for windows programs, but it still wasnt perfect.
Thanks for the help!!
