Go to Start - Run - MSCONFIG - OK - "Startup" tab.

Write down ONLY the names in the "Startup Item" column that have a checkmark next to them.

If the "Startup Item" column isn't wide enough to see the entire name of any of them, widen the column.

Submit those names here in a vertical list.

Make sure to spell them EXACTLY as you see them there.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Go to Start - Run - SERVICES.MSC - OK.

Write down ONLY the names in the "Name" column that have their startup type set on Automatic / Automatic(Delayed Start).

If the "Name" column isn't wide enough to see the entire name of any of them, widen the column.

Submit those names here in a vertical list and in alphabetical order.

Make sure to spell them correctly.

Double-click these service entries, one at a time, to open their properties window:

Adobe Acrobat Update Service

Distributed Link Tracking client

HP CUE DeviceDiscovery Service

HP Network Devices Support

IKE and AuthIP IPsec Keying Modules

IP Helper

Program Compatability Assistant Service

Windows Driver Foundation

Windows Live Sign-In Assistant


Change "Startup Type" to Manual, then click Apply - OK.

After you're all done, restart the computer.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Your services list shows you have Avira AntiVir and Norton Internet Security installed and running at the same time.

Multiple antivirus programs will fight each other and bog down a computer and cause other issues.

You need to get rid of one of them.

NOTHING that I previously advised you to do will cause your laptop to start freezing.

----------------------------------------------------------------

Click Start - Run, then type in

%temp% (% is the percentage symbol on the number 5 key)

and then click OK.

Once that temp folder appears and you can view its contents, select and delete EVERYTHING that's inside it.

If a few files resist being deleted, that's normal behavior. Leave them alone and delete EVERYTHING else.

If a massive number of files are being deleted, the computer may appear to "hang". Be patient and wait for the deletion process to finish.

After it's done, restart the computer.

You appear to have Malwarebytes Anti-Malware installed.

When was the last time that you updated its definition files, then ran a quick scan with it, then selected and removed everything it found?

----------------------------------------------------------------

You might consider getting rid of Spybot - Search & Destroy.

It's no longer in favor, and its TeaTimer feature is known to cause problems.

gone to 75 processors running is that the normal amount?
There is no "normal" number of running processes.

It all depends on what's installed and what's auto-starting.
