I'm running 64 bit windows 7 home premium i7-3930, 16GB ram
lately my computer has had two symptoms:
- very slow
- applications crash frequently (especially on exit)
upon examining the task manager - there are many duplicate tasks (there are no other users logged in) ...it starts with two - but over time will increase to 5 or more open at one time and many of them are using 200K+ memory
If you try to end process it either doesn't go away - or gives an error that it can't be stopped.
I've tried running combofix, registry mechanic, cccleaner, ad-aware, malware bytes, spybot s&d (in safe mode and out) and i still can't get rid of it
ALso when i try to close applications (especially firefox and outlook) - it hangs - then the program crashes and has to be closed via the task manager. After this happens - it is impossible to restart these apps without rebootin the machine.
any suggestions how to fix this error.
