CPU usage is nil, memory is only about 40%, hard drive isn't heavily active (light blinks about 3 times/second) so why does a simply task like creating a new folder take 5-6 seconds to respond? And renaming the new folder is similarly slow. Not even a huge, or deep, folder. (1 level down from root, has about 30 files & 3 folders in it.)

PC scans clean (MBAM & MSE) but even if it weren't I think the lack of CPU & memory use would indicate that the problem isn't malware. Any suggestions? Thanx.

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)
4. DO NOT FIX ANYTHING BY YOURSELF.
(Fixing Anything Might cause Unwanted System Instability,BSOD's and Even Render your System Unusable)
5.Copy and Paste all the contents
6. Paste them in the reply Window

I take it you don't trust MBAM or MSE? (No reason you should trust my experience in these matters-you don't know me. But I do have over 20 years experience working on computers-and I don't mean using them. But that's OK-if the problem hadn't disappeared I'd be willing to run HJT anyway since it wouldn't hurt. Although I *might* have gone ahead & fixed something myself-if I knew it was something that needed to be fixed.)

anyway, the problem disappeared after rebooting to install a new program. So I'll download HJT & run the scan if this shows up again. For now though, it's fixed.

Ok Dont just be this rude.
I didnt knew anything about your experience and I also didnt say anything about it.
BTW,
Can you just tell how the problem was solved?
I think that HJT isnt only for Malwares and Spywares.
It also reflects the Processes on the Poster's side
