|My computer likes to slow down when i exit a program such a google chrome, a game, or media player. Its anything that will trigger it to slow down after exiting out of it. Ive checked the temperatures of my computer and all lies well with a green check, task manager shows that only 9% of CPU usage, 42% Physical Memory usage with a total of 45 processes, sometimes more. |
Could this be my processor showing its age? -[Pentium E2180]
I keep the case-insides well clean and in a cool, non-smoke environment. The 4 RAM chips passed scans with memtest perfectly and my AV [Norton] has found nothing malicious except for a few cookies. Ive tried speeding up the Hard drive Disc Performance but nothing has helped there.
Im out of ideas and would very much appreciate it if anyone might know of a solution to help my problem.
Additional info: If i give my computer about 1-2 hours it will resolve its self and work perfectly fine. The amber light flashes consistently along with the tinkering sound of a computer thinking hard. The 'slow downs' after exiting a program happens about 1/1000 [rough estimate] program exits a day. Restoring the computer back to a previous point in time does not solve the problem and I do not wish to 're-install' my operating system since my computer did not come with a Vista installation CD in its package.
