Windows 7: Restore point error

I backed up my computer and installed the service pack with no problems at all.
Now where I get into trouble is when my computer gets slow and sluggish and that little circle just keeps going around and around. I go to these forums and that is where I get the information to download programs and go into the registry and things like that. I trust you. What should I do when my computer gets like that. I did take off cCleaner so I have no access to a registry cleaner. So what would you suggest? Thanks so much.

More detail needed:

What are you trying to do when it gets "sluggish"?

When is it "not sluggish"?

Does the PC seem to start up and shut down without sluggishness?

Generally, to investigate something like this, you would use task manager, but above info is needed.

You should update your system specs to show that you now have Windows 7 Home Premium SP 1, 32-bit.

When it is sluggish, I go to cCleaner and clean the registry. I then usually go to services and disable things I am told to. I will go to other places I can't remember and change settings. Then I of course used cCleaner to clean everything up and used my virus and spyware to clean that up. It usually worked good and wasn't sluggish then - until recently when I had all this problem. It would sometimes take forever to shut down but then came back up quickly. I will update my system specs. Thanks.

You misunderstood my post.

Is your PC sluggish ALWAYS?

Is your PC sluggish SOMETIMES?

If only sometimes, what are you doing at that particular moment when it becomes sluggish? Trying to open a browser? Trying to edit an Excel file?

When is the PC very snappy and NOT sluggish?

I'm interested in current performance with Service Pack 1, not how it used to be.

Stay out of services and stay out of the registry. It is very very unlikely those have anything to do with this issue.

No, my PC is not always sluggish, just sometimes. I don't know what makes it that way, that is why I needed the system restore because sometimes I wonder if I downloaded something or unchecked or checked something. When it is sluggish it won't open a website, it will say it can't find the page. When it is sluggish it stays that way until I optimize it and clean the registry. That often helps, but not all the time. The PC is snappy now after installing the SP, but I just installed it and haven't used it much. When the PC is slow, it takes forever to open a webpage and often times, times out before it is open. I have only used it to write to you after installing the SP and will be gone the rest of the day, so won't know how it acts.

Slow opening of a web site is more likely a problem with the web site or your ISP, not with your PC.

At any rate, I would not make any judgements until you have had more time to evaluate performance with SP1 as your PC stands now.

You would need to identify the tasks you are asking the PC to do when it becomes sluggish.

I'd expect it to be sluggish when applying a Photoshop filter to a 10 GB picture.

But I would not expect it to be sluggish for ordinary tasks.

I have been on the computer tonite and it is taking forever to get to websites, or opening my mail. This is when I would ordinarily start optimizing it. The sites are ones that I have gone to many times. Often when trying to get in my yahoo mail it gives me an error and I can't think of what it says now, but if I just click on a tab or the mail icon, it opens, just goofy stuff like that. Maybe this is how computers work, I don't know. I expect them to run fast, error free and maybe that is just not the way they work. I will let you know the error in opening mail when it comes up again. Don't worry, I am NOT optimizing it. As a matter of fact, I am putting it to bed for the evening. Nite!

Ok, got the error message when I wanted to go back to my mail. "Server not found, Firefox can't find the server at yahoo.com". Then all I do is click on one of the tabs above where I had been and it opens right up. But it does this all the time.

I don't follow your description.

My Firefox doesn't have "tabs above where I had been".

A picture would help.

Does it do this on ALL websites?

Try these for instance:

Intel.com
IBM.com
CNN.com
AMD.com
