    My computer just decides too start to be lazy when ever i do ANYTHING. if i download a file the "SYSTEM" process decides to just eat all the CPU up. Its a FRESH install of windows. I don't understand why its doing this. I had a virus that kinda messed my computer up so i reinstalled windows 7 now its just slow... and its really annoying. Help?

    Post your system specifications as well as any antivirus software you have installed and anything else you can think of. More info gives us a better idea of what's wrong.

    Just installed Avast 5.0 (I think may be the source of my issues, but i dont think so). All the specs youll needed attached via DxDiag.

    I use Avast 5.0 and install it on all the computers I work on. While I don't think that's the problem, I'm not going to remove the possibility completely. According to your system specs, your computer should be running at a pretty good pace. Obviously my first suggestion would be to install Windows again, and if that doesn't work, I don't know what will.

    i JUST installed it. It seemed to start after i got that virus... kinda annoying.. i cant even do simple tasks like move files from HDD to flash without me lagging. Im going to uninstall 5.0 and see the results.

    Didn't think Avast was the problem. And I know you JUST installed it. Install it again, install Avast 5.0 again as well as Malwarebytes, do a scan with both, post results. If you're on the same timezone as me, I assume I'll see those tomorrow.

    I still say reinstall Windows, but if that's not the route you want to go, then I guess we'll have to wait for another person to post something on this thread.

    Well, i decided to re-install. I had some issues burning the first Windows 7 disk. I re-burned it with 4x to ensure no errors (i think i did max last time.. i know..). Now im doing fine with no lasting CPU jumps. they jump for like a second and go back down. So ill see how it goes from here.

    Follow the below instructions Carefully:
    1. Download HiJackThis from the link in my signature
    2. Run a Scan.
    3. Save a Logfile(On your Desktop)

    BTW,TheShotter93
    Re-Installing windows is NOT THE BEST SOLUTION TO EVERY PROBLEM.
    If it was,
    then all people would reinstall windows to fix every minor problem and this site(Techguy.org) would NOT run as it is running now.
    Thats just my and some noobs suggestion,
    and one more thing
    Sorry for being Contradictory

    thedeathly,
    How did the CD you burned caused the problem?
    Was it Badly corrupted or stratched?
