I have been having the same difficulty for several months now. When it started, I posted the problem here and got help from some of the experts. They instructed me to download and run several programs to try to indentify the problem, but there did not seem to be anything wrong. After I installed MalwareBytes, the problem got even worse.


When I start the Task Manager while I'm having the problem, I see that the process named SVCHOST seems to be using a lot of CPU time. I'm not sure what is going on but I've learned to live with it. Now I just start the computer and if it runs slow (or almost not at all) I go have another cup of coffee and come back later.

Indeed, one SVCHOST process has a very high peak memory usage (1 GB). It means that one or more Services has a problem resolving one or more problems. That's confirmed by the results of the Minitool Box.

- Open Task Manager (after say 20 to 30 minutes) and select the Svchost process with the highest memory usage. Then right click on that process and select "Go to Services". It then should highlight the names of the Services that are causing the problems.
