  1. pc spec :

    laptop
    win 7
    4gb ram
    ati radeon hd 4500
    64 bit version
    intel core 2 duo cpu t6600 @2.20ghz & 2.19 ghz

    it boots normally but after 2-3 mins it starts lagging .It becomes extremely slow and every program running will not respond. It stucks at all and fixes after 1-2 minutes. But it stucks again and again . As a result , i have to turn it off from the boot up button . I have this problem within the last 2 months . But now the situation is worst than ever . Whenever this problem cames up it remains for 4-5-6 days and then leaves . But it comes again. This problem disappears while in safe mode . Btw all the drivers are updated. My antivirus is active . I cant think what is the reason for this issue. I hope you can help me . pls reply asap. thank you

    For clarification, the PC has no lagging in Safe Mode, correct?

    Usually this is a sign of driver issues and/or infection. Run a full security scan and get back to us with the results.

    No, not at all, Kaspersky is excellent. Run it. We're checking for infections.

    Do the following:

    Start > Run > type in EventVwr.msc > Okay

    Now check for Yellow Triangles and/or Red Xs and note what they flag.

    Also, how large is your harddrive and how much space is free?
