TrevTaskManager.jpg Hi GtG - wish my PC would go! :) Installed a new MS wireless desktop 1000 a few weeks back - not sure but I think it's caused very sluggish behaviour generally especially if the mouse is moved about. Task Manager shows nothing running too badly but Performance Tab is appalling - runs to 10-15% when nothing is running. Have run loads of virus scans - currently using Kaspersky IS7 - this could be a malware problem so if I have posted in the wrong area apologies. Have reloaded my nVidea drivers, Run sfc /scannow. Does anyone have any advice for the next steps please? Task Manager JPG attached - I was just doing some screen shots and writing this. Thanks - Trev

Hi trevtherev, welcome to Geeks to Go!

Have you attempted to remove the MS Wireless 1000 and use an old wired keyboard and mouse again? I would also uninstall any drivers/programs you installed with the Wireless 1000 set.

If everything still runs bonkers, then it's not the keyboard/mouse. If it starts running nicely again, then you have found the culprit. :)

Let us know what you have tried and any further questions you may have.
