Windows 7: Windows 7 32 bit performance has become incredibly slow suddenly

Windows 7 32 bit performance has become incredibly slow suddenly

I have a Windows 7 32 bit that is part of an Apple Bootcamp partition. I use the Windows 7 part of the computer almost exclusively for gaming purposes. The performance standards of the computer are fantastic, so any poor performance is obviously some sort of problem.

To start, my Windows 7 performance instantaneously fell off a cliff recently. One second I was playing Call of Duty problem free and the next second it is laggy and slow. The entire Windows 7 has been this way ever since. Even low graphics games with settings set low can not maintain performance. This poor performance extends to the internet where it might take me 5 minutes to get from my homepage to youtube.

My question is is there anyone who has encountered this problem in the past? Was it resolved, and how so?


This last point may not be related but I have been noticing that when finish playing a game on Steam, multiple random Google Chrome windows have been running in the background without my doing anything. Could this be related to the awful performance?

Thanks

Hi,
I'm not a gamer but I wouldn't expect 32 bit to be much of a gaming rig but please fill in your system spec's page with the link above my signature so we might at least see what you have going,

Use Clean boot,
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/179159-troubleshoot-application-conflicts-performing-clean-startup.html
Click Start and type in the search box,
msconfig
Click on the suggestion on top or hit the Enter key,
Go to the Startup section and take some screen shots for a complete list,
Go to the Services section and on the bottom left Check the box to Hide All Microsoft services,
Repeat the screen shots,
See the links above my signature on how to take and upload screen shots here,

Also include which antivirus programs you use or have ever used,
Cheers.

Thanks for the help! You're right about the 32bit thing but thats a whole other issue, my 64bit disc wouldn't download when I installed Windows 7.

For this issue at hand, I found my solution. Somehow my Microsoft Security Essentials stopped and I had to re-download it and eliminate some small viruses. This cleared up my performance issues.

My Windows 7 PC quite often slows down to a geriatric snail's pace. In this state the mouse pointer lags several seconds behind what my mouse is telling it to do (which makes positioning the mouse quite difficult), it takes ages to respond to CTRL/ALT/DEL, or to draw the Task Manager window on the...
