It looks like two items are giving you problems. 1. AVG - I really don't like this program. I suggest, you uninstall it, using AVG Remover: http://www.avg.com/us-en/download-tools and switch to one of these: - Avast! free antivirus: http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html - Avira free antivirus: http://www.free-av.com/en/download/1/avira_antivir_personal__free_antivirus.html 2. TeaTimer, which a part of Spybot. TeaTimer is known for taxing CPU. Spybot is a tool of the past and I suggest, you uninstall it altogether. You won't get anything better, than MBAM, which you have already installed. Report back after making the above changes.
