Hello

I left for a week and when I returned I noticed that IE* was slow so I rebooted ...it took over 7 Minutes to reboot ...and I lost count on loading files ... I went into MSCONFIG ..only found one file that looked suspect ..unchecked it ...no name just a bunch of assi stuff

also have run malewayrebytes and tdsskiller ...both came back clean ....I also noticed that it took about 4 to 5 minuted to shut down when I restarted it ...

CPU use is not over loaded and I have plenty of ram ... it used to take no more that a minute to boot

oh one more thing ...after it finnaly boots ..programs seem ok ...I played wow for about 4 hours with no issues

I'd try running chkdsk /r command.

Start/Run...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter.

Type Y and hit Enter.

Reboot.

Upon completion of command, the system will boot into Windows.

Hardware looks fine at a glance, being that I am in training I cannot help you further, but hamluis or another member will be around to help you further diagnose other possible issues, including malware.

Agree with kisk re data reflected via Speccy, nothing jumps out to me as problematical.

Any events that you can correlate to perceived system functional difference?

Error messages onscreen?

Have you tried defragging, after running the chkdsk /r command?

Any reason to suspect malware, since that seems to have been your first conclusion?

I interpret that...as an indication that you have a failing hard drive.

I suggest moving any desired files to other media...then running the long test using the proper hard drive diagnostic. Diagnostics are available at the respective websites of the major hard drive manufacturers.

Hello again

I gave up and broke the cardinal rule and restarted this computer ... it booted after about 7 minutes ...one thing is that chkdsk wanted to run again ..when I tried to stop it I relized I had a USB keyboard ... and its not active during this part of the boot process ...so I ended up finding a ps3 keyboard and was able to cancle the chkdsk

I have loaded Sea Tools ..since I have a seagate hard drive so far I have run the SMART test and the short generic test with both passing am getting ready to do the long fix test ...

Whats so wierd is that everythign is running good once it boots .. even WOW runs fine
