Ok so I ran a virus scanner 3 times (once in normal, twice in safe mode) scanned everything single thing etc..

Nothing came up..ok cool...

Regardless my machine runes so slow and my start menu wont even open when I left click it, I had to install classic shell just to have a windows start window working..(how much wood can a woodchuck chuck....)


My memory stands around 87-90% like something is going on in the background, tho I can't seem to find out why. Nothing weird in my startup tho I do have a program called "Program" with a blank icon that wont let me either delete or go to file location while looking at the startup in Task Manager while uninstall does nothing.. (tho I am pretty sure it's a leftover and it has been disabled but still...)


I was getting so bogged down I ended up uninstalling my antivirus software and decided to just roll with windows defender for right now till I can find out what is going on...


I am at a total loss...

Download and run Sysinternals' Process Explorer.




See which process is using the most CPU and/or memory.


Double click on the process name and select the Threads tab to see which thread is using the most resources.

Also, enable the VirusTotal check in Process Explorer by clicking on Options > VirusTotal.com > Check VirusTotal.com


Use the built-in Windows Snipping Tool to grab screen shots.


Post the images on a site such as Dropbox, Imgur, etc. and paste the links to the images in the thread.
