Hi dolphin_dude

There would be no real reason as far as i know as to why your system should slow down all of a sudden.

I suggest you follow the Malware-Spyware-Cleaning-Guide and then post a new topic in the Virus-Spyware-Trojan-Removal forum.

This could bring up the cause of the slow down. Then if not come back here and we can take another look. But lest us know either way

Download and install EVEREST
Open it.
1: In left pane expand Computer folder.
2: Click once on Summary
3: In upper menu, go Report
4: And then to Quick Report-Summary
5: Save it in text file, and paste it in your next post.


DO NOT INCLUDE ANYTHING UNDER THE LINE THAT SAYS "DEBUG- PCI"

You might want to consider adding more RAM to your computer. Adding RAM is the most cost effective way to increase computer performance.
Run the Crucial RAM Scanner from here: http://www.crucial.com/
To find out what RAM your motherboard supports, and how much.

I would have to agree with rev_oli's suggestion. Since this happened so suddenly there may be a possibility of a infection on your system.

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post the reguested logs in THAT forum. If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

Right... upgrading your RAM is just a general performance tip.
