Computer lagging every few seconds??!

My computer lags whenever I type, watch video or just search the web. I did a system restore not to long ago so I don't know the issue. I have a 2009 Gateway running Windows 7 64. Help is needed thanks.

Open task manager and click on the Performance tab. Check the CPU and Memory usage. There could be many programs running or executing tasks in the background due to which your PC is lagging. On the same Performance tab in task manager, click on Resource Monitor to check which process is eating up the CPU and RAM.

In addition to the excellent advice given by Dinesh, please provide us with your Event Viewer administrative logs by following these steps:
  1. Click Start Menu
  2. Type eventvwr into Search programs and files (do not hit enter)
  3. Right click eventvwr.exe and click Run as administrator
  4. Expand Custom Views
  5. Click Administrative Events
  6. Right click Administrative Events
  7. Save all Events in Custom View As...
  8. Save them in a folder where you will remember which folder and save as Errors.evtx
  9. Go to where you saved Errors.evtx
  10. Right click Errors.evtx -> send to -> compressed (zipped) folder
  11. Upload the .zip file here.

The file was saved in MTA format, not evtx format. I unfortunately cannot open it.

The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable. Alright, we are not going to be able to get at it this way. Can you list any errors you see reoccurring?

Also, you may want to use the steps to Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup and see if you can narrow down any possible application or services causing the system to hang.

99% of the Errors is Bonjour Service. I have no idea what that is .

Bonjour somethimes comes with a printer when installed. It is from Apple.
Go to Start/Search/ and type msconfig. Go to Start Up and let us know how many and what is checked. I have my Security, keyboard and mouse. Now go to Services in msconfig and check Hide all Microsoft Services; all I checked there is my security programs. Please don't fool with Microsoft Services. You very well might have just a lot of things running in the background that are not necessary.
Please post back and fill in your complete Specs.
