Hello! I am in desperate need of help.

My computer has been running dreadfully slow - taking 10 minutes to boot up, another 5 before I can open and programs.

I've downloaded all kinds of spyware/malware/anti-virus stuff: Avast, AVG, Spybot, Ad-Aware, and Malwarbytes Anti-Malware. I've run them all, and they seemed to help at first, but my comp still seems to end up slowing down.

I have a feeling the problem is the number of processes I have - I have 61 !!! I have no idea why. I have svchost.exe repeated 6 times! Is that normal?

I removed a bunch of things from startup, but I'm still slow.

Any help would be AMAZING! Thank you!
