General Low Performance (without gaming)

Hey all,

Well I added My computers Information with my account so I won't post again

the problem is that Aero themes slows down my computer although there is nothing

wrong with my hardware, I downloaded the Nvidia 186.81_notebook_win7_winvista_32bit_international_whql

and installed it (it enhanced speed a little but not for long after restarting couple of times it got slower and now even any video I play the video is slower than the audio

and any program I open is slow and has a periodic glitch every few seconds that you can see in the loading icon of the windows pointer

anyway I snapshot the ram, cpu and harddisk

What is this registrybooster.exe. That looks suspicious to me. Did you install any "enhancements"? If yes, get rid of them.

What do you mean with enhancements ?

all I installed is my Nvidia windows 7 driver
I will uninstall the register booster (its not helpful anyway)
also I have Kaspersky Anti-virus 6

Download MSE and disable Kaspersky to see if it might be the problem

Registry boosters, registry defraggers, and third party tuneup and enhancement software are pure snake oil. At best they do not work and clutter up your system. At worst they can definitely screw up your system and degrade performance.

If you do uninstall Kaspersky, use the proper kaspersky removal tool. Else you may get new problems when you install MSE or whatever.

Are you sure?

First : do you want me to disable kaspersky or uninstall it?

second: if I uninstall the anti-virus what security would I have
