Windows 7: slow performance

Can you download process explorer, run it, and save the output (file > save as) and post the TXT file? That'll give us all we need to see what is running, and from where.

firefox - 111,180
explorer - 16,320
dwn.exe - 12,996
plugin container - 11,788

Total processes running - 49
These were the ones listed under processes, the tab services shows what is running or stopped.

I don't see anything alarming there.

I would stick with Cluberti on this. He is highly qualified on processes. I would download and run Process Explorer as he recommends a couple of posts above.

I have process explorer on my computer, but there is no place where I can "run it". Might mine be something different than what you are talking about?

It downloads as a "zip" file.

If you unpack the zip file, you will find a file called procexp.exe. If you poke that file, it will run the program and you should see something like this on your screen. Then go to the file menu and "save as".

You double-click procexp.exe, and when it opens and gives you the process list, you do file > save as to save the output to a txt file. If you download it from live.sysinternals.com it comes uncompressed, but if you download it from the technet main page, you have to unzip it first.

How exactly did you remove Malwarebytes? Did you uninstall it using proper uninstall procedures? I assume its not removed in the best possible way that's why it still shows up in the list of startup items.

I would also use CCleaner to clean junk files that slow down the computer plus, CCleaner also has other tools like its own program uninstaller and startup items manager.

Mine didn't go into a zip file, but somehow I managed to get it running. I saved it to the desktop but now cannot figure out how to get it on this forum. I tried the snipping tool, copy and paste. How do I get it to you? If you are sick of this just let me know ok? Thanks.

Use the "go advanced" button to go to a screen that will allow you to upload attachments. Then look for "manage attachments". Then browse for your file, open it, and click the upload button.
