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.[/QUOTE]

Where is the go advanced button found???

Just below the box where you type in a reply to a post.

Underneath the box where you are typing - there's the button on the left, "Post Quick Reply", and the button on the right, "Go Advanced".

That's how you post a picture, so you have that figured out. Good.

But you need to post a picture of the file you saved when you ran procexp.exe.

In post 38, you said you had procexp.exe on your desktop.

You need to double click it to "run" it. Then go to its file menu and choose "save as". Save the file somewhere you can easily find it. Then go to "go advanced" and upload that saved file just like you uploaded in post 44.

UPLOAD THIS FILE.TXT

Okay, I had it open on my desktop, I went to upload, but don't know how to get it in this forum. I tried the paperclip upload and it gave me the above. This can't be this hard, I feel so stupid. I do have Windows 7 if that makes a difference if you are using a different OS.

It appears that Firefox may be using more memory than would be normal, although that wouldn't specifically explain the slowdown. I do have some questions about the version of AVG on the system given the symptoms. At least according to Process Explorer, you've done a good job at trimming the fat - the only thing left that would be affecting things like network traffic would be the AVG filter driver, so I'm wondering if you've ever run with AVG uninstalled in the past? It might be worth trying, as while AVG is a good antivirus suite, it is most definitely not "light".
