Hello Everybody, In the past few days my computer's performance has dropped dramatically. Start-up takes around 5 mins as oppose to 5 seconds and it's overall performance is awful. I first started to notice flaws when Mozilla, I-Tunes started to take more time when loading but my CPU usage has started to clip when using Cubase 5.

My first thought was that i had a virus,so i ran scans with AVG, CC Cleaner, Spyware Terminator. some problems were found and terminated but the problem is still here. My computer was bought at a computer market with a OEM version of windows XP(SP2) and i do not have the XP disk for a full factory restore, i do however have license key. It took a while but my files are all backed up. I have also checked all the running processes and there was nothing dodgy found :)

Another thought is that the hard drive is corrupt?, so perhaps replacing the hard drive will fix the problem?

Any help in the right direction will be appreciated, apologies if i have made a noob/common thread.

some problems were found

I suggest that you start a new topic in the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal area.

Before you start a new topic click on this link --> Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide, Please read before starting a new topic. This will give you a few preparations to make, as well as instruction for posting your OTListIt2 log.

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).
