I know for most of these things I'm supposed to post some kind of log, but I can't remember what the little program was that scans everything and makes the text file- if somebody could tell me the name of that, I'll do that immediately.

 

On the problem: my computer usually works perfectly. I defrag it bi-weekly, run Avast 24/7, and SpyBot/MalwareBytes once in awhile- but they usually never find any problems. I will randomly see high CPU usage every week, with nothing standing out in task manager consuming resources EXCEPT explorer.exe (and usually it doesn't even look like the culprit, but once I force it closed, the problem stops). While looking for files, the green loading bar takes FOREVER to load, to the point where I will usually just give up looking for what I wanted- note here, I have all the folders customized to their contents (i.e. set to video, or music, or whatever).

 

Before I made this thread, I was trying to move some videos I downloaded from my download folder to my main video folder, and it's been about 15 minutes now and they still haven't been moved- nor is the little dialog for the move updating (been stuck at 60 seconds remaining the entire time).

 

I don't know if there's one problem or many, but I like to believe I am careful with how I use my computer so things like this don't happen. I've tried some minor fixes (like denying thumbnail cache deletion), but nothing has worked. Thanks for reading and potentially helping.

Hi Seanfury

 

I noticed a couple of issues in the speccy link you posted.

 

1) You have MS Update 2823324

 

   This  update is canceled by Microsoft due to users experiencing crashes. Microsoft suggested anyone who installed this update to immediately remove it. More details can be shown in the below links.

 

 http://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2013/04/12/patch-tuesday-fatal-system-error/

 
 
 Uninstalling this buggy update might solve most of your issues.
 
2) Did you installed Microsoft security essentials ?
 
  According to speccy, you have both Avast and MS Security essentials installed (Microsoft Security Essentials (Version: 4.1.522.0)
  You should uninstall one of them immediately.  Running 2 AV at the same time will slow the systems and should lead to system crashes.
 
3) There is only one usable partition
 
You just have 2 partitions and one of them is a 11 GB recovery partition. 
 
Your C drive is 585 GB big and yet you only have around 88GB free space. That is around 500GB of files scattered through the C drive !!!! . No wonder in the green loading bar takes forever to load. You should have shrinked your C drive  and create another drive for data storage in the first place. It is not possible anymore without moving all your data to an external drive. For now just follow the steps i describe :
 
     a) Uninstall all junk programs . Uninstalling all the unnecessary apps will save disk space and speed Windows. For example you don't need both "Daemon tools" and    "Winarchiver virtual drive" (unintall theme both if you don't want to mount ISO) . Some apps may be installed just for testing etc. Only keeps apps which are absolutely necessary to you.
 
      b  ) Download TFC from http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/tfc/

         

          Run it as administrator to clean all temp folders in one click.

     

     c) Delete unnecessary data like videos you don't want to see anymore. Moving data to an external HDD is also a good idea. Burn movies to DVD and delete from the HDD.

 

 

Please do all the above steps and report if there is any change in performance.

I did everything you suggested and waited a day, but the problems are still occurring at the same rate as before.

Hi seanfury

 

Did you uninstalled MS Update 2823324 ?. Which AV you chooses to keep ?. 

 

Make sure no malwares are in you system. Malwarebytes is a good AV but there are several malwares it may miss to catch. Use 'Eset online scanner" and scan your system -  http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner/

 

SMART data of you HDD shows warning. This could be an indication of a failing HDD. Run a full test with 'Hitachi Drive Fitness Test'. Download link and user guide -  http://www.hgst.com/support/downloads/#WINDFT

 

Please report any message given by drive fitness test.

 

If there are is no malwares are reported by Eset and your HDD passed fitness test please re run 'Minitoolbox' and 'Speccy' again and post the results.
