Turns out it was Norton Security causing the issue.  Must have been a recent Win 10 update that caused it.  I have uninstalled it and it works great. Go to the full post »

Hello,

 

My system:

  • Windows 10 Pro
  • HP Envy 700-215xt
  • Processor Intel Core i7-4790 CPU @ 3.60GHz
  • Ram 8 GB
  • 64 Bit operating system
  • 2 year old desktop tower
  • I run Norton Security and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Home (Premium) and Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Premium for the last year

 

My issue:

About 2 week ago my computer started to run slow when webpages load(I typically leave my computer on 24/7) so I rebooted and it started to run just fine.  Then about 24-36 hours later I noticed it running slow again when loading webpages.  By running slow I mean, the mouse would freeze up as I would try to move it while the page was loading, once the page loads the mouse moves around freely.  I do not notice the mouse freeze while loading large computer programs such as full version of Photoshop or Power Director.  It only seams to happen when loading webpages.  This holds true no matter if I use Chrome, Firefox or Edge.  So it has consistently started running slow after being on for 24 to 48 hours.  It seems to get worse the longer it is on, but always runs fine after a reboot.  It also seems that the webpages load faster after a reboot compare to before the reboot when my mouse freezes 

 

What I have tried:

  1. Ran anti-virus scans with Norton, Malwarebytes and SuperAntispyware Free version and no viruses were found
  2. Updated mouse drivers
  3. Move my wireless mouse dongle to another usb port and replaced batteries in mouse
  4. Task manager shows my memory running at 50% to 65%.  I have reduced the number of startup programs and got the memory down to 40% but still have the same issue
  5. Ran CHKDSK which showed no issues
  6. Ran a memory check which showed no issues

 

Any help with this matter would be much appreciated!!!

 

Thanks

 

Scomar

Thanks for your input FreeBooter, but my computer was running very efficiently until a few weeks ago, so I do not think run programs to help speed it help is going to resolve my issue.  

 

The weirdest part of this for me is how after I reboot my computer runs just like it did a few weeks ago,  Screaming fast no matter how many programs I had open.  I am having trouble figuring out what can be causing it to slow down when it is left on for more than 24 hours.

 

Thanks for your help anyways FreeBooter.

You may want to try Clean Boot state to eliminate startup services and programs.

Even do you don't have any errors run Sfc /Scannow command from Command Prompt.

Keep your eye on Task Manager to see any process utilizing CPU or Hard Disk more than other processes.

Please download and install Speccy to provide us with information about your computer.  Clicking on this link will automatically initiate the download.


To keep a record of your system profile at any given time, you can publish to the Web using Speccy. Speccy uses Piriform's servers to publish the profile without any identifying information. Each profile is given a unique URL. For an example, see:

http://speccy.pirifo...iTFbWJJ1oggVwcV

The last part of each URL is randomized, so only people you provide with the URL will be able to find your profile.

Note: Each time you start Speccy, it will generate a new randomized URL. This is useful if you want to track your computer's information over time.
To publish a Speccy profile to the Web:

  • In Speccy, click File, and then click Publish Snapshot.
  • In the Publish Snapshot dialog box, click Yes to enable Speccy to proceed.
  • Speccy publishes the profile and displays a second Publish Snapshot. You can open the URL in your default browser, copy it to the clipboard, or close the dialog box.
  • In your next post right click inside the Reply to Topic box, then click on Paste.  This will load a link to the Speccy log.
