Hi bleepingcomputer people! I registered because I'm in need of your help (and I hope this is the right section).
From a few days, there's a little problem happening in my computer. First off, I'm using WINDOWS 7, and my pc specs (copy pasting what I see in the properties): 10 GB of RAM, intel Core i3 2100 CPU 3,10 GHz, 64 bit
It has always been good, I mostly use the pc for music reproduction and production. But weirdly, some day some applications started to open really slowly.
An example: when I open Foobar for the first time after I boot up my PC, it is REALLY slow and the window appears 15-25 seconds later and then I can use the program regularly. Also, after I opened it the first time and close it, and then open it again, it works as normal (very fast start). The same happens with other small applications; I have for example Advanced Renamer (that I use for renaming songs) or other really small .exes
I didn't notice this happening with folders, internet or other things. I highly doubt it's a virus, I have TinyWall running and MSE, and I rarely get viruses because I hardly surf the web or download stuff from P2P or torrent services.
What could be the issue? It's not a "serious" issue, but it's certainly super annoying
Hope you have an idea of why PC started this behaviouring, and hope you can help me
See ya around
