Hello: (New to this or any forum for that matter)


Trying to get a cursor in this text box took 5 seconds. Hitting refresh in Gmail or any buttons within gmail or on-line apps takes the same amount of time. Just days ago all was fine - I downloaded some code (w/o properly using common sense - logic analysis code - technical - usually OK) and since that occurred having "response to mouse action" problems (just button clicks and text entry getting a cursor). Have also lost scroll capability in one application - not sure its related but suspicious. Scroll works fine in other apps like Visio. 


Have run antivirus software (AVG & Bit defender and Microsoft Security Essentials has been ON all the time). Was thinking of running "combo box" repair utility from this site - but thought best to get advice first and that was also what was recommended.


Suggestions? Thnx in advance for your help.


Mod Edit:  Do NOT run ComboFix without proper instruction by MRL personnel - Hamluis.

Seems to be OK now.


Removed Chrome - re-installed - worried I would lose my mail - did not  -->> No change


Read some more - came across a forum discussing changing windows performance - played with  that no difference although one person states it resolved this issue.


Came across this web site:http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/179159-troubleshoot-application-conflicts-performing-clean-startup.html.


Played with MSCONFIG as suggested - however it locked up my machine -on reboot (windows was busy trying to stop apps during log off) - waited 1/2 Hour - removed the battery - rebooted came up with all the start-up items disabled, (which I believe I had disabled as suggested).


Opened chrome the problem was GONE. I was about to cut disabling the start apps in half to narrow down on the problem - but instead turned them all back to Normal - using Normal.


Returned Windows to Normal state using MSCONFIG - rebooted. and Voila (GOT LUCKY) - chrome and all other boxes including this one work 100% as before.


So what changed - beats me? But I am thrilled that my machine is back. I am running chrome Beta version now as suggested by one forum (problem remained it was the MSCONFIG selective - no start-up rtns / reboot / back to normal approach that seemed to have resolved the issue)  


We'll see for how long this will stay the way it is now - if it comes back - I'll be back.


Anyway Thnx for letting me spell this out - I appreciate the no nonsense on this web site.
