So sometimes my computer will be going really slowly so Ill just press the ctr+alt+delete, find whats slowing me down at the moment and stop the process! But after discovering that the things slowing me down are processes crucial to making my computer run in the first place(vsmon.exe, svchost.exe) I ran across a problem.... Is there anyway I can maybe make these processes take up less memory usage? Sometimes they take up like 12,000 at a time and if this isnt normal I was wondering If maybe theres something wrong with my computer.

If you do things right, then people won't know if you've done anything at all.

Do you have the Zone Alarm firewall installed on your system? I've had issues with vsmon.exe and have stopped using Zone Alarm because of this.

Try turning off the Zone Alarm firewall (and turn on the Windows Firewall) to see if this fixes the issue.

The memory usage, as TG1911 states, could cause this slowness if you don't have enough RAM.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
