Hey all. Im working on a friends PC that had virus issues. After spending a few hours cleaning it up and fixing all the blue screen errors, i noticed the computer was running pretty sluggish. After typing the password to get it it takes about 45-60 seconds for everything to load. It takes about 10 seconds for the internet browser to open up and then another 10 seconds for the home page to load. the computer is about a year old, its a Toshiba Aio DX735 with an i7 processor and 4GB of memory using the factory image with all bloatware installed. My Lenovo from a couple years back which has all the bloatware from the factory, runs smooth as the first day i got it. The memory usage on the Toshiba is always between 50-60%, but the same goes for my Lenovo. Is there anything that i can test as i cant find anything wrong with the machine at this point. Thanks for the help.
Edit: The hard drive is only 4% fragmented, so i doubt thats the cause.
Edit2: Just noticed the memory usage spiked to 89%. Task Manager doesnt show anything using more than 50MB. Not sure what could be causing the memory to spike that much.
Edit3: Memory udsage went back down to around 50%, wmpnetwk.exe was taking nearly 2.5GB of memory. Unfortunately, once killed the computer was still responding slow.
