I just came across a problem with my computer being really laggy and slow this morning, but it's not just in everything. For some reason my computer starts up fine and loads fine at the desktop, but after about 1-2mins, the computer just all of a sudden slows down and the mouse feels laggy, application windows close more like a quick fade rather than fast sweep. Moving my mouse over icons are also laggy too. I checked my ran and its fine and i also checked task manager and havent seen any unusual things.

Please help!

Take a look here: Slow Computer/browser? Check Here First; It May Not Be Malware

Not to sound lazy, but I've done most of those things already. I skipped over the browser stuff since I'm almost certain it has nothing to do with that. I'm not really new to computers and fixing problems, but I guess what I'm mostly looking for is either links or downloads from those of you who work on the forums that might have a lovely tool that can analyze my computer from boot to startup, to completely loaded at desktop to tell me or direct me to where the problem is. I noticed that when I go into safemode, the computer buzzes as fast as it normally does without the problem, thus I have a strong feeling that something is happening during the time the computer loads at the desktop since the computer runs fine for the first few mins before it lags.
 

Yesterday I didn't do anything other than install a driver for my wireless HP printer and play Tera Online and OSU. I played Tera Online which runs on the latest Unreal Engine, similar if not identical to the one used by APB Reloaded. That I think could be important because both are notorious for their issue in memory leaking, which actually caused Tera to crash after about 2.5 hours of playing a max graphics (takes longer if it's at lower settings), but I did check for RAM issues in-case one of my RAM cards died, but my computer did not recognize and problems with RAM. i also uninstalled the driver to the printer and that has not made any difference.

I already used CCleaner and ran CHKDSK in safe mode, Vista automatically defrags so I don't think I need to worry too much about that, besides even if fragmented files were the issue, I would believe that the problem would have been much more gradual, not just a lag like button that is pressed after a few mins each time my computer gets to the desktop.


Any personal advice or programs that might help me?

I personally don't have any experience with Vista. So I will have to defer to people with experience with that OS.

Open up MSCONFIG which you can open by typing it in run and pressing enter. Close off any unnecessary start programs. 

 

Also I would run Ad Aware software. It picks up much more than your regular anti virus software.

I'd run ccleaner cleanup tool. Then stop all startup programs not related to your anti virus or firewall.
