Hi! My computer has slowed down considerably lately. It says I don't need to defrag but I can't get Disk Cleanup to work. It will start looking for files to compress then in a few minutes my CPU sounds like it's gone turbo and it stays on about 3 dashes and that's it.

I clean out the temp files daily and the cookies weekly.

Could the fact that there are 41 processes running causing this? I don't even know what most of them are,I've tried looking them up but cannot find info on several of them. My System Idle Process stays at about 97%.

Thanks for any and all info or suggestions!

i've got 39 running and at 1%. Depends on what's running, and how much juice is being used up by a task. Did you check which task is the likely suspect? Try running disk cleanup/disk defreag in safemode.... Even if that works or not, the senior guys here'll suggest you run a 'Hijack this' check and post it here to see what evil bug might be running in the background. Also list your system specs..... CPU/ram etc.,

Please do this. Click here: http://www.sherrylynn.us/HijackThis.exe to download Hijack This. Save it to it’s own folder (not temporary files or the desktop).
Close all open windows and open HIJACK THIS. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and save it to NotePad. Copy the entire log and paste it here.

DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET, most items that appear in the log are harmless or even needed. Wait for someone to analyze the scan and advise.

Are you sure you closed down all running programs and closed everything except for HJT? Also create a seperate folder on your C drive for HJT to run in.

Here is a link that will explain services / processes to you. Instead of disk cleanup do a search for ilsystem wiper. It is a great program that I include in all of my builds. You can set it for what you want it to clean and one click and it is done.
