I couldn't find the startup in explorer so I couldn't find that part but the fluctuations are there. Especially in I/O Reads. Mem usage was hovering around 3-4k today but I see it go up to 5k sometimes. The I/O would go from 10k to 488k. I don't know if this would cause Windows Loading slow down but thats what I noticed.
The thing is this sputtering begins when initially loading Windows. It takes a loooongg time now. I used the Windows Live Scan (took over 7 hours) and it found only 3 problems and cleaned them up. I did Housecall and it removed a few cookies and found these vulnerabilites:
(MS04-027) Vulnerability in WordPerfect Converter Could Allow Code Execution (884933)
(MS04-028) Buffer Overrun in JPEG Processing (GDI+) Could Allow Code Execution (833987)
(MS05-004) ASP.NET Path Validation Vulnerability (887219)
I tried applying patch and there was an error with the first one and the second one may or may not have installed (it didn't give any heads up at all). I don't know if these would cause the slow downs. But after I did all this I'm still getting this super slow problem.
Something I did notice is when Windows was scanning see I saw some of the stuff it was scanning and it had about 30-40 movies that I've never downloaded but I've never actually seen on my computer anywhere. I don't know where they're coming from since the scan was quick and all I saw was it was it was in C (Hard Drive)
