Windows 7: Windows 7 unusually slow?

Windows 7 unusually slow?

I keep my PC in tip top shape, CCleaner, Defrag, Scans, tweaks to the OS etc.
(I would honestly be in shock if someone could tell me a performance thing to do I haven't known about)

Anyway, My Laptop is slow for some reason, My windows install is like no more then 2 weeks old after doing a reformat, I then upgraded from home premium to Ultimate, since I had a key still.

But for things like changing the theme, it takes a good couple minutes for some reason to do it, And for some reason my laptop after being on for a bit will just run like garbage, just simple longer load times, and firefox will glitch and freeze. And typing instant messages on skype takes to long and gah. I check and my CPU usage is stuck in the 90-100% range, and I wasn't running anything abnormal, Just skype and firefox.

Which my Pc can handle greatly. Anyone know whats up?

The Defrag is that the Windows built in version or a third party tool ?

Lets see what this tells us

Click here DDS

Click on Download Now button

When the download is complete . Drag the DDS program from the Downloads folder to your Desktop

Double click the DDS icon on the Desktop then click the Run button to run the tool.

Place a check next to attact.txt and click Start . When done, DDS will open two logs
  • DDS.txt
  • Attach.txt

Save two logs onto your desktop and upload them with your reply

Note   Note

I see you have Malwarebytes installed. Have you tried running that? Update the definitions and then do a quick scan ?

What type of tweaks have you tried or haven't you done any since this is a new upgrade?

I couldn't run the 64bit despite being on a 64bit computer, because near the end of the scan it stopped responding so I used 32bit (both ran as admin)

The tweaks used came from these two programs

Simple System Tweaker
Ultimate Windows Tweaker, a TweakUI for Windows 7 & Vista

I made sure I knew what I was doing and kept away from any bad ones.
