This will feel like a major disaster, especially if you've unsaved work in other applications. . I run Spybot 2X aweek and then RegFix This clears away a lot of garbage. After 2 hours of updating my windows 7 and some reboots my cpu load sunk to 12 percent.
Many thanks and kind regards. All the best Brett Malwarebytes Anti-Malware solved my problem. Download speed not only fixed but faster than it was before. This seems very strange and I think this is the reason for me thinking the program was not reading the last couple of crash dump files. And, for the past few months now, my laptop's been lagging.

When I first called Dell, they tried having me do an Express Scan, or something like that -- when the computer was booting up I hit a button and it scanned for hardware problems, etc. Hi I have the same problem for a while, I scan many times with malwarebytes anti-malware,but still problem exists. I have a static electricity removing wristband that clips to a ground connection. I have been working on this for a week or so and so far my experience with Windows 7 has not been pleasant, much like the experience I had with Vista on this laptop.

If you see something that you don't recognize in any of these tools, a google search is your friend and will usually tell you what the item is.
