My laptop has been very slow, where things take 5+ minutes to open. Originally I thought it was a virus, but nothing was found, so it may be the computer itself. Looking at the Task Manager, while waiting, the CPU stays low, though opening any .exe files is extremely slow. The only abnormal thing is the process dwm.exe Desktop Window Manager takes 50K of memory.

Run a diagnostic test for your hard drive if available on your BIOS setup utility. Run short then long test. Post the hardware temperature of your laptop and perform a clean boot.

Sorry for replying so late. After disabling all services and hiding all microsoft services my laptop was normal speed in a normal restart (i had to run this in safe mode). The link did not show me how to log anything however.

I cannot find the diagnostics test in the BIOS setup utility. I was only able to do a memory diagnostics test, which had no remaining log.

My start up items are still disabled from before. I did reactive some, but most of them are still off.
