Windows 7: Windows 7 x64 slow and hangs, ctrl+alt+delete error

Windows 7 x64 slow and hangs, ctrl+alt+delete error

I've been having an issue with my OS, Win 7 x64, 5.89 gigs usable ram, i5 processor. The image in the bottom is a reference to what I was seeing the one time I could get up task manager, but this is performance info right this moment. CPU usage was constantly at 25%, 1st and 3rd graphs for CPU usage were way toward the top,, in the top 5 bars and the 2nd and 4th were barely off the bottom. Memory usage was sitting steady at 1.5 ish, not moving at all.

I would say the problem is intermittent, but it's more that it working normally and being functional is intermittent, thus why I can make a thread right now. It hangs, programs become unresponsive, can't do much of anything with it without it crashing, however the mouse moves fine so it's not as if all the drivers are effected. I recently had to do a factory restore, maybe a month and half ago and lost all of my files, and I just recently got everything back to how I like it on here, so I'd rather not have to go through re-installing things again. Before now, I usually let my system sleep if I was going to pick it up later, as to not start and stop the C drive. So I was wondering if maybe that has to do with the odd behavior lately. I'm willing to wipe and restart with everything again if it's nessesary, but I don't know if it's something simple. Since it works sometimes, I'm doubting it being a hardware issue

I can hardly pull up any sort of system control or performance info while it's acting up. When I try pulling up task manager, I get an error that says something to the effect of "Failure to display security and shutdown options", and the whole system goes black and I have to manually hit the power button to cycle the system.

It starts fine in safe mode or a clean boot when all of these things are happening. One thing I do notice, is now that it's working fine, Panda Antivirus has an error saying "Antivirus protection disabled" and says it wants to restart. I have that, a VPN (PIA) program, Malware Bytes,and Spybot Search and destroy that start as soon as windows does, I'm curious if those applications, especially Panda, have anything to do with what's been happening. I've ran chkdsk as well, and it didn't find anything. I've reset winsock. I've ran memory diagnostics through the repairtool and tried a few other auto-repair tools that are built in. I'm not sure what to try next.

Let me know if there's anything I can do to without wiping my files.

Here we go. It's been running fine every time I've started it up recently, but every boot I have to uninstall and re-install my network adapters to get it to pick up wi-fi...very strange.

Layback Bear will tell you that your Startup is pretty obscene, Windows only needs your AV starting with it and nothing else. So uncheck everything other than Panda and click apply, reboot and see if performance improves.

EDIT: You have Panda and McAfee installed? One needs to go as they're more than likely conflicting with each other.

McAfee Uninstaller:

You are correct Gav.
WAY to much in the Startup and Non Microsoft Services.
McAfee alone is a problem in my opinion along with another anti virus program is just asking for problems.
104 processes running is very high.
Cleaning up your msconfig will help a lot.

I personally don't do any auto updates of anything. That being said I have to remember to do them manually. To me that is not a big deal.

so you understand I will explain a little more about Startup and Non Microsoft Services.
When all those things except Security programs are not checked does not mean they will not work when they should. It just means they will not be running in the background using computer resources when they are not needed.

Here is a example I use.

Microsoft Office.
If it doesn't start up with Windows 7 it's still usable in a normal fashion.
All one has to do is tick on it when one wants to use Office. When done with Office all one has to do is close Office and it is no longer running in the background.

Now I have touchpad issues

So, I didn't know McAfee was still on there, I thought I uninstalled it when wiped everything and started over.

Now I only have my touchpad and Asus Vibe (which is what I'm assuming you mean by AV)

However, since I did that, I can't scroll with my touchpad.. Tried updating driver, said it was up to date. Then I made the mistake of trying to use Smart Gesture...and now I can scroll but it's too sensitive and basically worthless. Tried rolling back the smartgesture driver, but it gave me a different one I never had before and the sensitivity settings wouldn't respond to changes when I messed around in the control panel. Now I'm back to smart gesture, and I'm not happy.

Know of a compatible driver that will actually work? I dont even understand why it stopped working after I took out all those services at start up.

Also, what other services are even necessary? Just thinking of other ways to speed my computer's performance.

One of you Asus programs in msconfig probable needs to be checked. I don't know which one because I have never used a laptop.

Please use this tutorial by Brink to correct your system specs.
As you can see the wrong specs can cause problems.
