Thanks for the suggestions, I uninstalled Spybot, AVG, and ESET and installed MSE.

My laptop is almost unusable at this point - the typing lag, the scrolling lag are both very very apparent and cumbersome.

I also went in and removed my daughter and her boyfriend's identities/user files as they are no longer using this laptop.



I've appreciated all the input and help, I'm at a loss to figure out what to do next.....
