I'm not sure where to post this issue and understand it may be moved.

I'm fairly sure that my system is clean of a virus or malware but will yield to the experts...

I have a Dell 1545 laptop running Win 7.

I'm having issues with slow start up and DL Autoruns to help with that but still have a slow start up.

The system currently has 68 running processes which I feel is too many.

IE runs and launches slow. Sometimes I have to click on links 3-4 times to make them work and others it just speeds right along. IE seems to hang a good bit and try to figure out what it's doing.

I am fairly sure the system is having issues with add-ons.

My computer will also just randomly go to sleep even when I'm typing or clicking on links. I then have to wake it back up or sometimes must re-boot.

I run McAfee total protection and Malwarebytes anti-malware. Both have recently been run and updated and I found nothing.

I have had these issues for months maybe a year or more and Dell's only recommendation was to re-install windows and all my programs.

I'm not sure if any new programs in the last year have affected the system.

 

I know this info is vague and I can provide more details as needed. I will subscribe to the thread and await further direction.

Thanks again for all the amazing work you do.

I suggest that you review the following:  Slow Computer-browser Check Here First; It May Not Be Malware - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic87058.html .

Thank you,

 

I already have started reviewing some of the issues.

I have already viewed the Add-ons site and used the disk clean up. I am trying to go through each of the areas listed.

 

The one link to Its not always malware: How to fix the top 10 Internet Explorer issues and How and Why to Clear Your Cache goes directly to the Microsoft IE site and doesn't show anything the link says. Is there something I'm missing?

Microsoft will change/delete links quite often.
