Hi there, I've been hooked on a game recently and been doing the same thing every time I turn my computer on for the past couple of months. Only just the past couple of days something weird has been happening. Upon starting up my computer, it'll load everything fine as usual. Though, after about 5 minutes things seem to slow way down. Whenever I click on something (Google Chrome, Start button, New tab, My game etc) The screen seems to freeze for about 5-10 seconds, then proceeds to load. Sometimes it'll load fine or it'll be extremely slow until the process is complete. After about 5-10 minutes everything returns to normal.
For months now, as soon as my PC starts up, i've been loading the task manager and terminating some processes (nothing important) to save them from opening up and clogging CPU. Just things like AOL, MyTomTom (GPS programme), Webcam process, Windows Live Messenger etc.
I've restored my computer back a couple of weeks and ran a scan, though the problem still persists. It's nothing major, it's just extremely frustrating.
I've tried numerous online searches aswell, though I'm having no luck finding anyone with the same problem.
