Hi,

i got windows 7 ultimate x64


my computer started becoming ubber slow most of the time about 4 days ago.Everything is so slow and it makes no sense.just opening a folder takes like 10-20 seconds most of the time now

my computer keeps on making non stop stops sounds likes its working alot even though im doing nothing.

im running as usual 2 antiviruses (comodo + ESET and i was runing malwarebytes antimalware) and it never made my computer slow or anything apart if i was scanning of course.

I followed the tutorial on this forum on how to fix a slow computer both physically (cleaning the dust out of everything and every other step that was mentioned)
I scanned my computer for malware with every possible program from this site including ESEt internet security malwaware bytes ,malwarebytes antirootkit,KasperskyTDSkiller.
I cleaned my computer from all the crap with CCleaner just like usual ,i do it once a day.or more
I checked my disks with chksdsk
i defragged all my harddrives.
i disabled a few non useful services
i uninstalled all the crapware.

i even change the aero theme to the normal windows them which is really unpleasant.


Heck i even formatted my computer reinstalled everything as usual  and for like 10-12 hours evrything wax ok and then it got all slow.

some more information :

the temperature of all my components are good.

for some time now there have been spikes in my ram usage, like its being being used by something but i wasnt doing anything i already verified with ranmap and other programs,.

and my cpu usage also spikes but mostly its used between 2-15 % when im not playing games or opeing large programs.

Could my slow computer be the result that its gotten old ? i build it in 2009 or 2010 or something like that.

or could it have to do something with the ram or maybe the hard drive ?

here are the specs of the computer ,its an image i made of speccy with all the specs.

Two anti virus's running is not helping the issue more than likely part of the slowness.

Done,its in my main thread post.

 

 

Two anti virus's running is not helping the issue more than likely part of the slowness.

 

Well i knew that but i never had any problems so far for the past 2 years or so running 2 antiviruses not including malwarebytes antimalware.

 

Also my browser firefox keeps slowing down my computer with those shockwave error messages.

So far after uninstalling 1 of my antiviruses, the computer is running a tiny bit better but its still slow ,mainly when i use my my browser but its still busy most of the time ,like half the time it seems to be making noise like its working.

 

Also it seems i can still play video games but sometimes it crashes,(i reduced the graphic options)

 

 

Could it be that the reason that my computer is running so slowly is because of my graphic card or my processor or maybe my ram is just getting too old ?

 

 

Also sometimes my ram will spike up to like 80 % of its use while nothing is being done except watching a video and browsing the internet.this usually lasts only a few seconds but sometimes up to a minute or more.

Although not listed among installed programs...you have a process running related Zemana Anti-Logger on your system.  Since it does real-time monitoring of the system, it may be responsible for resources used.

 

Please post a new/current Speccy snapshot, please.

NM. I got distracted and my post repeated something I and others mentioned earlier. After I re-read the thread I realized I goofed.

Yes thats right, i have uninstalled it and it didnt change a thing.

 

heres a new snapshot of speccy

 

 

Thing is ,i dont believe this is a software problem unless i got a virus or something and if i have one its the kind that hasnt been found yet.Like a bot or something.IS there by any chance something to find bots ? because none of the antiviruses i ever checked had the function to search for bots.

 

the reason i dont think its software related is simply because that i used to have comodo ,eset internet security,malwarebytes antimalware and zemmana at the same time and my computer never was slow because of it.

 

Theres one thing i have not mentioned, i was cleaning my gpu with compressed air and i put a piece of metal in the fan to block it and its possible that i may have damaged the fan , and the main slowing down is graphics related also audio too,but then again my pc makes so much noise likes its working non stop when im doing nothing,anyhow.
