Same as with 7

If you are going to try without the internet tonight and it does not work, dont forget about the clean boot.

Up dates are not every night, as suggested by your problem

In start search ,type windows update,then in the update window on the left there is a change setting link in there ,change the settings via the dropdown that gives you the option. by important updates.

Edit: Richard lightning fingers beat me to it.

I decided to clean boot anyway. I restarted at 11:55. at 12:05am the slowdowns struck. Eerything came to a crawl. Yet my damn resource monitor showed NOTHING in terms of extra processes.

I could not shut down normally... yet again. I had to reboot by holding the shut down button on my case.

is there any way to log every damn thing my computer does?

This is like a soap opera.
Try the advice, tomorrow about disconnecting from the internet. Im sorry I did not think of that one. It has potential.

You can type event viewer in search to look for any errors or problems
There is a log that will give complete computer activity, but I cannot think of the name. I will post when I do, .

I actually pulled the plug on the net the second the slowdowns happened. They continued for 30 minutes until I shut down by force.

Since then I have restarted, updated windows .NET framework, and ATI drivers and turned off automatic checking for updates......

lets see what happens

well, Sorry for the double posting. thought I'd update that there was no Witching hour last night. I am not sure if that's because I turned off updates. or updated to the most recent .NET

I'll report back the next time this occurs

LSO and cookies

LSOs are files that have been acquiring as bad or worse reputation as cookies. They are usually from use of various products requiring Flash content. See the following links (hope you can take the verbosity):
