  1. OK...I am planning on uninstalling all my cloud oriented programs as well. Such as Google sync, DropBox,. Google Sync makes me suspicious...:-) I will let you know how it turns out. Thanks!
  2. Thanks for the suggestion. My problem so far is that once the system starts slowing down, my ability to call up any monitoring program is gone. Once I got the Task manager program up and it showed, "Task Manager not responding"...:-( When I say my hard drive is flailing I mean that the fan cooling my laptop starts running full blast. I believe it is my hard drive only because I see the hard drive at 100% when I have my task manager running. I only have an SSD (256 Gigabytes).
  3. Hello! I have a puzzle I am hoping you can help me with. I own a Lenovo laptop with Win10 home. I use Malwarebytes and Webroot as my antivirus products. (Don't shoot me! I will be happy to switch to Adaware if you can show me that switching would fix the problem.) Over the last 6 months, I have noticed my computer's hard drive will flail away at times (usually in the evening) and my performance shows to such a crawl, that I have to do a hard shutdown and then start over. I am not running anything except a browser most of the times this happens. I have tried to open Task Manager but usually I can't do this or any other diagnostic work. Once I was able to get into Task manager but I could not see what service or programming was causing my hard drive to max out. I got an SSD test program and it shows my SSD is doing fine. I downloaded Adaware and FRST and ran them. They did not show any infections. I am wondering if my PC is being hijacked as a BOT when this is happening. What do you think is happening and what do you recommend? I can provide the logs if you wish. Thanks!
