Hi Thanks in advance for any info you might have to share with me. My computer info is as follows : Asus P5Q SE Plus motherBoard Intel Pentium E6500 Kingston 2 X 2 GB PC2-5300 O/S Windows 7 Ultimate Wireless network card Broadcom 802.11g No other added pci cards My issue started about 7 or 8 months ago my computer completely froze after some time and effort I restarted into safe mode and examined the usual suspects Spyware ,Viruses Chckdisk etc. after a restart into normal mode my computer was reacting very slowly to every click of the mouse. ( example It would take 3-5 minutes forfirefox to open but would close down immediately and open normally every time after that.) This seemed to be the case for about the first 6-8 programs I would open and then the computer would work well for a short time ( 20 minutes or so ) then freeze up solid again. This cycle happenned three times. In the end I decided it was bad blocks on my hard drive and replaced the drive, with a western digital WD2500-AAJS-00L7A0 and then reinstalled Windows everything worked great Then about two months later it started again this time, I noticed That my antivirus Avast had stopped running and my remote access had been enabled ( I keep this turned off ) So I reinstall an anti-virus program "Avira" turn off remote access, all in safe mode I should add it was the only way I could. Do all the normal scans Malware bytes, virus scans and it come up threat free. Once again my computer runs great for about another two months. Computer freezes again and one more time I find my remote access is enabled and antivirus is shut down. I do all the usual things and this time I am getting a little suspicious so I add a key encrypter to my machine. Everything is great until about two months later ( when I say two months I mean 6-9 weeks ) This time my avtivirus is shut down and my media sharing is enabled, I also keep this shut off. It seems each time I turn off these sharing sources I am able use my computer normally again for about two months. Does this sound familiar to anyone or maybe someone can share their thoughts. I should also mention that I am not new at this we have 5 computers in the house I keep them all maintained and the one I am on is the computer that has been acting this way.
