CPU - RAM - Especially those two. Have you tried any "fixes" or programs to speed up your system before posting here? If so what? Also what "problems" were you alluding to in your initial post and how were they "fixed"?

3GBs or RAM seems OK and so would be the CPU.

Your case is a common symptom of conflicting antivirus software. If you have two antivirus software installed at the same time and are both set to start automatically when you open the computer, the startup usually becomes very slow so you might as well remove one of the two antivirus software and just leave one installed and running at once.

Try to clean your junk files that slow down the computer using CCleaner.

You can check your startup items by these steps and tell us what items on the list are checked:1. Open Start Menu
2. Type msconfig on Run and hit ENTER.
3. On the System Configuration utility, select the Startup tab.
4. View the items checked on that list and tell us.

The only fixes I tried were to run the virus programs

What else do you have checked in startup?? Only those 2 items?

If you have more checked, uncheck everything but those 2 and restart. Does the situation improve?

Ha, this is definitely a result of conflicting antivirus software.Please read my above post and please be advised to have only ONE antivirus program running at once.

Ok, all I have checked is AVG and I unabled malware. I will try this out today and see if it helps. I just hid all Microsoft services and I reopened "services" and they are all back. Why is that? Thanks.

On that statement I said, check "Hide all Microsoft services" checkbox, it was only meant to hide all Microsoft services from that list so you could sort out third party services that were not made by Microsoft some of which maybe the cause of your problem. It wasn't meant to disable the Microsoft services.

That is what I did, Hide all microsoft services, I clicked on OK. When I went back to it all the Microsoft stuff was there again. I did not say disable. Also, how do I know which of what is left can be the cause?
