Welcome to BC. Your slowdown may be caused by sypware; I suggest you post a HJT log for our volunteer team of experts to analyse, after which they will work with you to clean up anything it finds. Complete instructions can be found here:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/
Assuming you have a HP notebook, you can safely allow cpqset.exe to run, according to the BC Startup Database
,found by looking at the top of this site's page.
In addition to help, BC offers a wealth of information, both in its Tutorials
as well as in its technical forums
, that will help arm you in defence of your computer.
Welcome to this great user community!
