all of a sudden my computer is s-l-o-w....cursor "sticks" and any sound comes out like a stutter. I've been running anti-virus and windows Beta anti-spyware. In fact, it seemed to start after I upgraded to Windows Defender. I un-installed it and still have the problem. Here's my HiJack this file. Help :tazz:

never post a hijackthis log in this forum unless asked, and then, only ATTACH it

Download Process Explorer from Sysinternals
http://www.sysintern...ssexplorer.html

Extract, run.Go to VIEW > SHOW PRACTICAL CPU usage
Make sure it is checked.

Look in the CPU column and relate what is consuming your CPU time

Well, I think I did :tazz: . Both are gone now when I look at the control panel add/remove installed program list.

If you're not seeing abnormal cpu usage spikes in process explorer, it must be a driver issue

reinstall/upgrade you video, audio, mouse, chipset, etc drivers

I do see spikes in processor when I do something. It'll go up to 90-100% when I hit send on this response. Mostly, the big user is "Hardware Interrupts"

hardware interrupts mean a hardware device is asking the CPU for attention and result from either faulty hardware or faulty drivers

update your drivers

OK, thanks. It's an HP Pavilion with no added equipment beyond a USB mouse. I did go to the HP diagnostic site 2 days ago and ran their diags. It called for an updated processor driver, which I added. Beyond that, it said all the drivers were current. I'll look for a new mouse driver, but Is there another place to go to see which drivers need updating?

I would actually remove all drivers in add/remove control panel, and then reinstall them even if they are all there


Additionally

start > run, type
eventvwr.msc
<enter>

Look under systems and applications for items with red Xs that happened at the SAME time as your problem...list them here.

Sorry that took so long, but this is just painfully slow, especially with the reboot I did. anyway, I ran eventvwr. No application red x's, but it's absolutely full of red system x's. There are many recently that are all from the service control manager...The Application Management service terminated with the following error:
The specified module could not be found.

If I go back a few days to where I started getting errors (and about when I noticed the problem), the first of several are on 2/20 from atapi ...
The device, \Device\Ide\IdePort0, did not respond within the timeout period.

also, I know how to remove what look to be drivers from the add/remove control panel, but how do I reinstall them, especially if they control some device that I need to reinstall??
