hullo...for a while now i feel my processor is not giving me full performance...with 2GB RAM and 2.8Ghz Dual Core i can surf the net and use Photoshop CS2 and open file n folders with no detoration in performance right? but i cant....my photoshop takes ages to open and so does other work...also does a rendering of a web page depend upon RAM or processor? because my web pages too take ages to render...i use firefox for browsing...i might also add that i think the computer slows down only when i use firefox...but i may be wrong its just a hunch...please help me here

i checked my task manager when the computer became extremely slow and the ram was jus showin 40% use while the CPU was 100%
a process called "guard.exe" hogs up the CPU....heres a screenshot of it...the usage become around 90 some times and things become really slow!

try disabling AVG anti spyware and see if it helps ...it might not be playing nice with guard.exe...
guard.exe is a process belonging to Phoenix Technologies and is part of Core Managed Environment (cME) Integration and Certification program. This process should not be removed to ensure that your system is secure.
no help...try reversing it by leaving AVG anti spyware running and in start up uncheck guard.exe so it doesn't startup with windows
