Windows 7: Slow window pop ups

Slow window pop ups

I've had this problem for a while now, though it comes and goes. For some reason, whenever I restart my computer, it goes into a "slow-mo mode" until a seemingly random moment in time. Usually it comes out of it's stupor after a few wake ups from hibernation.

While in "slow-mo mode," all animations, actions, game-play, everything is cut in half. It's not an FPS drop, everything just plays like a video in slow motion.

I've searched and searched for someone with a similar problem, but have yet to find anything related.

Any advice to help remedy the problem would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

Do you have a lot of programs that are starting up with the computer or several applications running at once ? These could lead to a slow response.

I do not. Even if I did, I don't believe it would be the problem as I can have multiple programs running without a problem, unless I am in the "slow-mo mode" that begins on start up.

Thank you for your reply.

Yes, with nothing out of the ordinary discovered.

Again, thank you for your efforts.

An update: I turned my computer off last night, turned it back on this morning and it's back to normal. As quick as that, it comes and goes.

when it slows down - start resource monitor and see what is using bogging things down.

what antivirus tool are you using?

you might want to put Windows Defender Offline onto a USB stick and scan with that:

I checked the resource monitor several times. Nothing out of the ordinary.

I've been using Norton 360 for a year and a half or so. No problems, has been great.

I'll check into Windows Defender Offline, thank you.

Doh, where are my manners? Welcome to the Seven forums!

You might want to leave task manager open/minimized with the icon showing in down by the clock (system tray, notification area, whatever it is called this time around :-)

That way, you can glance at the CPU percentage when things bog down.

If you want - you can replace Norton 350 with MSE just for a day or two and see how things go.
