I have removed Firefox and am just using IE at present. Things seem OK so far. Thank you for your help.
I would like to go back to using Chrome if possible, so may reinstall the latest version of that if I have a suitable problem-free period while using IE.

Good call nice to have a backup browser.
may reinstall the latest version of that if I have a suitable problem-free period while using IE.

Bad news. Everything is worse. IE is even slower than Firefox, which was slower than Chrome. It seizes up just the same as the other two. The solution is the same - go into Task Manager and kill off the processes - in this case iexplore. I had 3 tabs open on IE; I went into the Task Manager and found five running iexplore processes - two small ones, one at 40K, one at 104K and one at 247K.
Since using IE, I have also notice a new pop-up that keeps asking me to allow a spellchecker program to run.
Could it be the case that all 3 of my browsers were compromised? If I install Chrome again before I get rid of IE (as I would need to do to download it!), then is there a risk of whatever problem is in IE infects Chrome as soon as that's back on?

Please bear with me - it will be a few days again before I can look at this next step.

I haven't yet been able to successfully boot my PC to Safe Mode with Networking.
Doing the F8 thing at startup does not give me the options above, but takes me to a more elaborate looking screen to do with the Asur motherboard - but none of the options appear to be safe mode or safe mode with networking.

Just found something about getting safe mode when on an Asus motherboard - I'll try that shortly.

OK, managed to get booted up in Safe Mode with Networking, and my PC is running like greased lightning! What information can I now provide you in order to identify the process that is clogging everything up?

All steps followed. Logs attached.
PC seems to be running fine right now, however it's normally after some minutes that things tend to clog up.
I'll report back later with how things are.

Still the same issue. PC slowing down to a standstill, rectified by killing browser process in Task Manager.
