I'm running W7 on a HP HDX18.

In the past 2 weeks, my laptop keeps slowing down to a stand still. When I stop and restart explorer.exe it goes back to normal but within a few minutes the same issue reoccurs.

I've run full scans with ESET and Malware Bytes and neither found anything.

Hopefully you guys can help me out.

Please let me know if you need Hijack This logs or anything like that.

Thanks!

Welcome to G2G!!!!!!

It seems like you would first benefit from visiting the Malware Forums. Even though it seems like its an Operating System or Software problem, it has a good chance of being a malware issue or related to malware in some way. Also, they have other tools to help you clean your system other than the ones you have run already.

Furthermore, malware might be in the shadows lurking and if any changes are made to your computer, it might strike at any moment if it sees a vulnerability. So please begin HERE. Don't forget to add a link to the malware thread so the malware staff can follow up on steps you have already taken.

When you complete the malware part and your computer is officially clean, come back to this thread if you are still experiencing the issues.

I also want to suggest that you update your OS and most ran programs with the newest updates to avoid memory leaks and just overall bad programming that might be over using the CPU AFTER visiting the Malware Forums
