  1. Well, I try to keep my computer updated so I can't say I didn't. But I can't say I remember I did either... The problem is that I can't tell exactly when the problem started. I just discovered it thinking "that was strange with all that lagging", but I did not investigate any further. It was the next day I realised I had an issue... I've been doing this a lot lately and I can't say I see any unknown programs running. When the computer is idling about 95% of the resources are marked as free, but still there are sudden "jumps" when a program is using CPU and then they will use up 70% of my CPU (some even more). Those programs can be Internet Explorer (usually when I start a new page or open for the first time - i.e. not now when I'm just typing) It can be Task manager itself using about 5%, Microsoft Security Essentials also 5% and so forth. Now this I have not looked at since the problem started. I don't know if there might be a problem here but free memory seem very low..? As I have a Norwegian Windows version I'll try to translate but I might get it wrong as I do not know all the terms. This is what I see in the Performance tab after a restart and with only Internet Explorer running (started manually by me): Physical Memory (MB) Total: 3581 Speed buffer(?): 2783 Free: 37 Core Memory (MB) Total: 203 Swap file(?): 113 Not in Swap file:(?): 89 Can this be correct? Only 37 MB free memory? In the lower part of the Task manager I have the following numbers: Processes: 54 CPU Usage: Variating; but normally around 5-10% Physical memory: 29% Yesterday I ran Malwarebyte again without finding any problems, however I noticed that when I opened Internet Explorer later that day the font size seem to have changed. All letters are somewhat smaller now than what they were on Friday! :( I feel something is going on here... Hope you can assist. Thank you.
  2. It started about two weeks ago. Unfortunately I do not have a system restore point that is prior to the lagging started... :( I've checked that and the latest I have available is two or three days after the problem first started. Maybe I need to format the entire computer and install everything from scratch?
  3. No, it does not. That said, I was only able to test the problem when writing at forums (and that problem was gone). I was not able to test the game related problem as the game would not run in Safe Mode...
  4. Hi again, I tried your recomendations (and was able to remove the Textaloud toolbar using the Run box comman) but unfortunately the problem is still there... Malwarebytes did not report any problems either... Do you have any further suggestions?
  5. Thank you Tarun. How can I delete the toolbars? As far as I know I do not have any at all, but when I search the log I see these lines containing toolbar: R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName = and O3 - Toolbar: TextAloud - {F053C368-5458-45B2-9B4D-D8914BDDDBFF} - C:\PROGRA~1\TEXTAL~1\TAForIE.dll I need Internet Explorer, so I should not uninstall that, and TextAloud does not have any toolbars as far as I know? I've been using eMule for many years without the lagging problem, but I'll try to uninstall it together with Ad-Aware. I have a laptop that I try to keep as clean as possible, and among other things I use compressed air in the air outlet all the time. When the lagging occurs, the fan is not running at an higher than normal speed, but I'll try to open the computer and give it a more in depth cleaning. Thank you so far.
  6. Hi, About two weeks ago my computer started to run very slow. I have only one PC game that requires a lot from my computer but two weeks ago it suddenly started to lag a lot. I asked for help on that game's forum, and the users there suggested me to post the problem here after trying to solve the problem with various methods. Unfortunately it is not only the game mentioned that is lagging. The entire computer is, and even writing a note on a forum like this can take ages, since the letters does not appear on the screen the moment I type them. I'm having a hard time explaining exactly what the problem is, but when I start typing a word, nothing is displayed on screen until I finish typing. It is as if the computer has to catch his breath or something. When I stop typing the word appear. When I scroll on an internet webpage, the entire page is lagging and "jumping" down in steps, while before the problem appeared two weeks ago, the webpage would scroll evenly and without the lag. Also - when I press different buttons or options in various programs, there are often some time delay before the mouse click opens the option I asked for. For example if I want to open the Options menu in a specific program, it will take up to several seconds before the option menu is displayed. If there is any more information I can provide I will be happy to do so. I followed the steps in the PC Cleanup Wiki page, but the problem is still there...
