|I have a Windows XP SP2. While using it a week ago, I suddenly experience a complete slowdown, with the mouse moving only in jumps. I restarted the computer, thinking it would solve the problem, but it didn't. Starting up now takes around 15 minutes, from about 3-4 minutes before. Running programs takes 10-20 times longer. I have a printer connected to my computer, and even printing takes much longer than usual. What surprised me was how sudden the change occurred- one minute it was running as usual, then suddenly it slowed and has never recovered.|
I have ran Spybot S&D. It found a few things but my computer stills runs much, much slower. Running in safe-mode doesn't change anything. I've also tried System Restore, going back by about a week before the problem occurred, but that also had no effect.
I'm running out of ideas; help would be much appreciated.
