I had left my pc idle for about 2 hours and when I came back it was running really slow. I had noticed my CPU usage was 80-90% when idling. Odd.

I pinpointed this to my logitech g15 keyboard. The LCD manager had been telling windows media player to keep searching for pictures for the slide show viewer. Good, disabled this and all other services at startup and CPU usage went back to normal while idling, 0-2-% give or take.

Now the problem is my pc is still slow even though the CPU usage is normal (by slow I mean hangs at welcome screen for about 15 seconds and then is slow to load programs, fine in safe mode though).

Here's what I've tried:
- Safe mode scan with malwarebytes and super anti-spyware
- Clean, defrag, and compact registry
- Defrag hard drive
- Clear other misc. junk

I currently have:
- All services except the ones needed for boot enabled.
- All drivers are up to date including latest BIOS
- Legit Windows 7 copy from Microsoft (64bit home premium upgrade)

Specs:
Q9400 @ 3.6
4gb ram (corsair dominator)
750i ftw
gtx 260 superclocked
700+ hdd space
750 watt (corsair)



And that's my speil.
Thanks to all who can help.
Thinking about a re-format :/

what all services did you stopped, have you checked registry for software on startup, this may be a virus, what if you try another account to log on instead of that one?

I have everything except what is needed to boot into save mode stopped. It's pretty much like safe mode except in normal mode, if that makes sense.

The only software in the registry under all the /run entries i could find is adobe updater.

Like I stated in my original post, I've scanned with 2 of the best (imo) free malware programs both in safe mode and have come up with nothing.

I tried making another account (with admin privilege) and couldn't even log in. It was on "loading personal settings" or something for a few minutes so I just shut it down.

Also, whenever I try and install system mechanic pro, during the installation a get a BSOD saying "a corrupted driver was trying to change the system" (not sure the exact words).

I get this only when I try and install it, or if I try and open it for that matter.

it seem like a virus to me, creation of another account may take few minutes, run safe mode it will stop even lot of drivers and also disallow other things, then try to create new account, HJT log would be great

Made a new account in safe mode, boots there fine. Got into the new account in normal mode after a few minutes and it's still the same as my other account.

My HJT log is attached.

Also just ran yet another scan in safe mode, this time with avast (after trying the two outlined in the OP). It picked up one virus on my other hard drive. It was in a .wmp music file. Cleaned it up, however this still has not resolved my problem.
