It seems the 2 things happened at the same time. One day i went to scan the pc and noticed the trial for internet security ran out, i switched back to the free and thats when the pc started to crawl. Its slow with everything, loading, using any program, start up, even the scans. The first full scan picked up nothing, a boot scan picked up 1 adware. and various scans after (~5) including another Full Scan and Boot scan with higher sensitivity. Nothing new found but my pc is still slow. I went threw the TM looked at all the processes, applications, usage ect and saw nothing obvious. Even went into BIOS to check on the hardware thinking a fan was out, yet everything seemed normal. Keep in mind i don't really know what i look for, but having seen the stuff before i look for things that seem wrong. I cleared out the Rbin, removed items from the desktop, deleted other things i thought were useless. I really don't know why there are issues.
I thought that maybe it was due to a new editing program GIMP. But it was included in a select files scan that included all other recently DLd files, and nothing. I really don't want to bring the PC into a shop to fix. Even with a back up (theirs) i lost a lot of files last time and don't have the $ for it right now. Please help, Thanks!
