I have no clue what it could be and I don't know how to troubleshoot it. I don't know if its software or some nasty malware.
Everything takes a long time to run. And, sometimes, they all run together after many seconds of stalling. Then they run smoothly after being started, 90% of the time. Sometimes elevating permissions for a program like process explorer causes the screen to freeze and go grey for 5-20 seconds.
My Web browser also don't work well. Firefox takes seconds and sometimes i have to close and re-open because it freezes,and I have to close and re-open if it shows no connection. When it runs right, it runs smoothly. Sometimes when it doesn't work i see it running in Process Explorer and sometimes I don't.
If I disconnect internet it freezes slightly if I connect to the internet(wired) it freezes up. I check connection using TCP/Viewer and Process Explorer. It shows a few broadcast IP's and IP's for DNS, and other stuff. SVCHOST takes up like 30% of the CPU briefly.
Usually Idle System Processes are ~60-70% CPU even during the big freezes. I don't know what to say about memory usage. My Security Suite takes about 30% sometimes, and I am not sure if this is causing it(Comodo).
Not sure if its related. WMPNetwk.exe runs randomly when I open programs such as Firefox or by itself. I set it to Manual start and am not sure if its supposed to do that. On process explorer things like Firefox are shown under Explorer; I don't recall if it used to be like that.
Comodo AV & Malwarebytes come out clean...
