gateway computer slow response time

I have a question about my gateway-Acer computer it worked fine and now the response time is beyond slow it takes' forever to open a program I DEFRAG the system
also checked disc everything
checked for malware but when I click on something it sometimes takes
up to a minute to respond any idea you have I would appreciate
even typing this message there is a wait time for each letter it seems to be freezing up
when running in safe mode runs like new
Thank you

What happens if you start Windows in Safe Mode? Is it still slow there?

That probably suggests that you have some startup program slowing you down. Check those one by one.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
I would also starting in normal mode use resource monitor to see what is really going on
There have been many reports of svchost using way too much cpu = processor resources continuously

You can click Start and type in the search box
resource monitor
or open tack manager by right clicking your taskbar
Then go to the performance section and on the bottom use resource monitor button.

You look for processes that use unusual amounts of CPU time or RAM.
