I can't understand this, my windows 7 computer which I purchased 6 months ago was working great. But recentely it only work good on my users profile and only mine. For some reason It is extremely slow on my son's and the adminastrator's profile. I can't understand this. Originally the whole computer was slow so I did a system restore. I was on my user profile when I did the restore but should that matter? Now my son wants to use my profile because it won't freeze up or slow down like his does. I have Avast Antivrus and I did a full system scan but it didn't help. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

If one out of three profiles is good...that would seem to suggest that the other 2 are not OK, may be damaged.

I would create new profiles for those users and see if there is a difference.

Lets simplify .... If the computer from the start was slow you may have a hardware issue i would run a mamtest and a hard drive test.......
