Forced slowdown?

Hi,

 

For my first post this may be a bit silly; not an emergency, just an oddity.

 

Seems like every so often (as in just now) my system starts to run slower and slower (it had been doing so for several hours today and I once again rebooted). Killing processes doesn't help and eventually I have to reboot. Windows then installs updates and all is well until the next time.

As far as I can tell this is always when there are updates that need to be installed. Seems as if the slowdown is forced on the system so that there will be a reboot. This is a real PITA if/when I am in the middle of something that takes a lot of concentration

As I say, it's just happened again. After a reboot (and updates installed), all is well.

 

Anyone else see this? I don't think I am being paranoid - if that means anything.

 

At the point I rebooted only 2+Gb/8Gb of memory were is use, but cursor movement was really slow - almost unusable.

 

I am running Win7 Home edition SP1 64bit. I can provide full specs, but that doesn't seem to be the issue.

 

I scan with Malwarebytes and Spybot S&D daily and use AVG for the rest of my security, so I think my system is clean.

 

Any thoughts?

I would uninstall Spybot...the Teatimer function is known to cause system problems and there are better alternatives (including SUP"ERAntiSpyware) for a support program.

 

Uninstall DoubleSafety...it seems to be associated with all your volume shadow copy errors in Event Viewer.

 

Use the AVG Uninstall tool to remove 2 of the 3 versions of AVG 2014 you reflect as installed.  In fact, uninstall all 3 and just download/install the most recent version and update it.

 

After the above, I would run the chkdsk /r command and see how the system performs.
