In the documents above did it state anything about firefox being a culprit? I'm just wondering as i heard its a resource hog.

I have opened a task manager and watched the cpu as it went through the cycle, and the cpu usage did not greatly fluctuate, if it did at all.
Typically behavior like that is due to a service running, and it will usually show up in eventiewer as an application error. If it didn't, the best method to find out which service is slowing things down is to run through the clean startup and add each service one at a time to the startup items to determine which causes issues. My antivirus causes issues like this occasionally, but it shows up as an error in eventviewer with an application fault due to the "svc" string filename. I know Bonjour is a known service in iTunes that can cause slowdowns, as well.

This is the only error that has occured multiple times (7 times)in the last 24 hours:
Quote:
Activation context generation failed for "C:\Windows\Installer\{67E03279-F703-408F-B4BF-46B5FC8D70CD}\WksWP.exe". Dependent Assembly msadctls,processorArchitecture="x86",type="win32",version="1.0.1801.0" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.
What programs actively use bonjour? I have it installed, and i have itunes installed but i never use itunes, is there any other programs that would conflict if i disabled it?

Bonjour probably is not causing issues as it would show up as application errors saying it is trying to run a schedule multiple times within a few seconds. If you are concerned with it, however, it is better to set it to manual rather than disable it. To set it to manual:
1. Click Start Menu
2. Type Services into the Search programs and files dialog box (do not hit enter)
3. Right click Services (with the gear icon) and click Run as administrator
4. Scroll down to Bounjour Services
5. Right click Bonjour Services and click Properties
6. Change Startup Type: Manual (startup type can be found in the middle of the page)
7. Click OK.
8. Restart the computer if prompted.

As to your application error that is occuring often, that appears to be an issue with the Visual C++ Redistributables. Install all of the following and their updates:
Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable (x86)
Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable (x64)
Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable (x86)
Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable (x64)
Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable (x86)
Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable (x64)

With the C++ do i need to install them all or only the ones for x86 ones? If it's only the x86 i've installed them all, i'm only asking because i read that somethings won;t install if its not the proper version.
I could just read the pages you linked

"msadctls,processorArchitecture="x86",type="win32",version="1.0.1801.0" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis." Points to x86 versions not being installed. However, you should install both packages if you have a 64-bit machine so both x86 and x64 installers can use the redistributables appropriate for whether the installation software needs the x86 or x64 installer. You'll note that you have a Program Files folder in C:; these are the x64 programs. You also have an x86 version of Program Files where x86 software is installed; most programs are x86, as you will notice if you check the sizes of the two folders.

I have had nine errors in the last hour, after i rebooted my system. Five of them came from the SharedAccess_NAT, is this something i should look into?

Also, could this problem originate from an expired anti virus? (trend micro antivirus) Now that i think of it, it expired around the time the problem started.

Are you running an anti-virus without uninstalling trend micro? If so, definitely remove the old one. If you are not, uninstall the old one and install Microsoft Security Essentials and run with Windows Firewall.

To remove trend micro, Uninstalling Trend Micro program using the Diagnostic Toolkit and uninstall the software and trend micro firewall with that tool. Install Microsoft Security Essentials if you do not currently have an antivirus.

Hey, one more question, im looking into startup services and I'm wondering what these are, and if they are needed.
NTI IScheduleSvc
Gregservice

Could these be a problem?

It could be any service or application conflicting with your system. If you're worried about startup conflicts, follow the steps in Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup
