Windows 7 Slows Down Unexpectedly After Running Fine

After uploading  programs sometimes we  lose  internet connection  and everything takes forever to do. The mouse moves real jittery, windows take forever to open, etc. It takes forever to process anything.

Please note that if your system is affected with virus or malware or spyware , chances are there for slow down of system. in such case it is recommended to do a full scan of the system. Microsoft recomends Microsoft Security Essentials which is free Security software from Microsoft. 

There are 7 ways to identify if your computer is infected with malicious software. Not all the sever will suit at one time. But if you experience any of these seven habits on your system, then chances are there for your computer to be affected with spyware or malware or even with some virus. Read more:

The wireless internet is connecting through a Linksys Wireless USB adapter. Is it possible usb stuff is putting the OS on the fritz? 

If the system runs OK in Safe Mode with Networking, this indicates that the problem may be in something that is loading in normal mode.

Here is a troubleshooting procedure that we can use to track down the culprit.
Perform a clean boot.
  • Press the WINKEY+R to bring up the Run dialog box. Type  msconfig   and press OK.
    This will start the System Configuration Utility.
Note: Click Continue if the "User Account Control" window pops up.
  • Click the "Services" tab, check the Hide All Microsoft Services box and then click Disable All.
  • Click the Startup tab, click Disable All and click OK.
  • Restart the computer in normal mode.
Clean Boot is a troubleshooting step. If some programs have been disabled, we can re-enable them later. If we see the System Configuration Utility, check the box Don't show this message and then click OK.
When the computer restarts, try to recreate the behavior. If this solves the problem, then it is just a matter of selectively re-enabling the disabled items to pinpoint the culprit.

Start with the items in the Startup Tab of msconfig. Enable half of the items, click Apply/OK and restart the computer.

If the behavior returns, then the culprit is in that group of items that you re-enabled.
Go back to  msconfig and remove the check marks from half of the enabled items. Reboot and check again.

Repeat this procedure until only one item is left. That item will be the culprit.

If none of the items in the Startup Tab are the problem, then re-enable all of those items and then perform this same troubleshooting procedure on the list of non-Microsoft Services.
