I've been having regular intermittent problems with my laptop for the past 3 or so months. I went through a TON of troubleshooting on this forum/site with some excellent people and eventually got my computer cleaned up and free of malware or viruses. However, every few days, my computer goes from blindingly fast to so slow it's torture. I've noticed when I open task manager that my CPU often shows at 100% even though I don't have stuff open or not much. Also, when I close down Windows, it takes a long time and after it closes everything that is open, it says "closing background programs," yet I am not aware of anything running in the background. My guess is that I have a nasty hard to detect virus or some malware using my resources in the background and that when I run CC cleaner or JRT it gets rid of it temporarily. Malwarebytes and MS Security Essentials detect nothing even with a full scan. When this program occurs, if I open my computer in Safe Mode with networking, it runs just fine.
Any ideas/help? Thanks!
