Okay this is getting annoying

Since Saturday my computer has been going loopy. Weird drag periods. Long waits. A serious lag problem. I'm starting to get really concerned. I've run virus and system scans but nothing seems to stop it.

It happens with chrome, firefox and explorer.

It always seems to happen on intensive bandwidth uses. Video watching, certain games and websites. Now yes I can swear off the video games, the videos and other things but I'm more concerned this is a hardware problem and I'm not sure how to fix it. The Daily Show, Atop the Fourth Wall and other That guy with the glasses as well as iTunes.

Suggestions on program or tools to check the hardware?

Try http://www.superantispyware.com/ my uncle (who knows a lot about computers) highly recommends it.

Some services are getting pretty shifty about throttling stuff. I'd check: is it bandwidth related only, or is it all functions for the comp? Is your hard drive really close to full for example and maybe that's bogging things down?

Just throwing out some ideas.

Its all good thoughts.

My harddrive is about a little over half full (248/465)

I know it is not bandwidth as my brother is not reporting the same problems also when I use certain video programs that shouldn't be on the web I get the same lag.

Another tool to consider is Piraform's ccleaner:


It has among the best registry and junk file clean up tools out there, and is $0.

Do note the installer may request to install a browser tool bar from Ask as a way to make a little $ from their work; please decline that tool bar as it's kinda junky and intrusive.

Use it to clean up all the cruft for your hard drive, run the excellent registry clean up tool and review all the programs that are starting up at run time. Less is More when it comes to Stuff that is set to auto-run at boot.

Good luck!

Thanks its a good thought I've bene using malwarebytes and norton but at this point its starting to get annoying.

Let me know if it works for ok for you. I can share tips or whatever as/if needed.
