    Hey Guys,
    First, All the best wishes for 2015.

    I have a question abouyt a desktop pc. The system start all at once working slower, like it needs to think first before a command is taken care of.
    It is a Intel Core 2 Extreme Q6850 with 8GB ram and running on Windows 8.1 enterprise.

    For days now I have been trying with malware and antivirus, also under DOS mode and nothing came out.
    All kind of hardware test are done, they all came out ok.
    The system works, but like I said, a lot slower than before.

    Anybody can give me an idea were to look= I ran out of options

    thx

    "a lot slower than before." on startup only?

    No, in everything, start up programs and working in programs. Small example, If you start up explorer, he is not there as quick anymore as before.Like he does a lot of thinking before he starts.
    In everything it looks like he confirms with his co-workers first before he carries out an order.

    thx for the reaction. Regretfully that won't work, since the hdd got formatted and a clean os was put on it. Tried with other hdd's and other ram's, no luck.

    You need to upgrade your rams and processor.

    The giveaway is over, but there are other ways to obtain it, if you get my drift. Not sure how Process Lasso knows which CPU hogs it can terminate without affecting what you are doing. I just started using it and it seems to work. (Yeah, I know, "seems to work" isn't the most compelling of endorsements. But I thought the OP should at least be made aware of it).

    Computer parts won't last forever, you didn't saw how old is this computer.

    In my experience, faulty motherboard and/or faulty PSU does what you are describing.

    Your processor is a 775 socket, then your motherboard can be 8 years old.

    Some good capacitors could last longer than 10 years, some start to fail long before.

    Overclock and overheating can damage processors causing then to have a suddenly poor performance.

    (OP)
    You got a point.


    UPDATE:

    Problem solved.
    Testing with Prime95 showed that the CPU goes to a 100% performence when the fan speeds up.
    The setting from the CPU fan in the bios adjusted and now it is running good again.

    Thanks everybody for the contribution.
