I've only used it for the scans and posting the results here so I can't really say, but as for what I've seen is that it feels slower and it takes way less for the memory usage to go up and for the fan to go on full speed. Do the logs not show any problems? I still got some .exe *32 processes running.

Please do a screenshot of the Task Manager and post it here. Also mention which processes exactly bother you.

Before I've started anything:

When I open google chrome, I instantly get 5 chrome.exe *32 processes (also notice that I have a process called "jusched.exe *32", this process is always running even though I'm not having any other program going):

I make a new tab and even more chrome.exe *32 processes pops up:

3 tabs and I can feel how it's starting to slow down, also my fan is starting to go wild:

And even more chrome.exe *32 processes:

4 tabs (looks like it will keep on making new chrome.exe *32 processes):

Back to 2 tabs up:

That's normal. Every tab (also some offline extensions and functions) have their own process in chrome.

 

(also notice that I have a process called "jusched.exe *32", this process is always running even though I'm not having any other program going):

It's an abbreviation of java update scheduler. Nothing to be worried.

 

I make a new tab and even more chrome.exe *32 processes pops up:

It's normal. Each new tab will create a new process. That's how Chrome is build.

Aside of that, tell me when was the last time you did dust cleaning there? Loudly spinning fan is rather a symptom of machine being just full of dust.

Really? I have never seen .exe *32 processes before. The day I first saw it (when I made this topic), everything just suddenly got insanely much slower. I couldn't even stream a video on youtube normally, when like two-three days before I could game without any big issues. I checked the task manager and I had all these .exe *32 processes, one of them was taking up over 200kB while others took around 80kB of my memory. There wasn't only chrome.exe *32, there were a lot of other .exe *32. I haven't seen the other .exe *32 programs since I uninstalled that wierd program right before I made this topic. Could it have been that? And isn't it wierd that my computer just suddenly couldn't handle anything?
