My computer every so often runs very slow, mostly noticeable when I play a game or something, When the computer runs fine all games I play run very smooth and fast, but for some reason about once a month or so my computer runs very slow for a week or 2 at a time, the game play is very choppy and runs slow. Whenever this happens the first thing I always try is restarting the computer and run my anti malware programs but they never find anything and doesn't seem to do anything about this issue. Eventually it goes back to running at a normal fast speed, but I was hoping someone could tell me why it has those slow periods.

Hi Laxman24,

Your computer might be running slow because of to many activities running in the background. Windows 7 has a few tasks it is scheduled to perform every week.

One way to cut back is to disable some unneeded services or processes.

To do this click the start button, type msconfig into the search field, and select the msconfig utility.

Once the program is open click the startup tab. Many of the items listed don't need to be running at startup.

I will try this, thanks for the feedback, The only other point I can say is I do not think its an issue at start up just because sometimes I Will put the computer to sleep or in hibernation mode and when I open it up the next day or a few hours later thats when it will be running slow and it will stay slow for a week or 2 and then all of a sudden it just start running fine again. I have friends who have windows 7 and they dont seem to have this issue.
