Hello! I followed the instructions for help and have attached the information in a doc. Let me start by saying that: I don't keep much on my computer - some small word docs, some pics - but most things are kept on an external terrabyte drive when I stop working on them. I have clearned my trash. Run multiple defrags over the last week. A week ago I Googled my problems, l ran Malwarebytes, I did many things including following and completing (most of ) these directions to remove various things - I run Malwarbytes and SuperAntivirus - but with continued reading - (I was googling on my phone) I choose not to run Avira. While my computer was showing no major issues - (there were 32 on Malwarebytes - the "annoying but not dangerous kind" which I quarintined - except for the last which after google I felt would remove my saved passwords etc so I left that one. - Yes - next timeI will write all this down...) I still had high CPU usuage issues - here's what's happening that is driving me crazy. I am looking for a new job (My long term contract as an Instructional Designer and Trainer for Oracle, Kronos, and TeleStaff end users - well - ended.) I have several word docs up at once.Winword seems to stay on even when they are closed. I go into Taskmanager now and end the tasks when I see that happening.I have MANY Chrome windows open.90% of the time I use a touch pad and never even have mouse connected.I have moved to using Firefox in the meanwhile - and have a small amount of relief from my problems - but it comes around.I want to go back to Chrome - I like using my gmail and google docs there. I tried to change some of my on "startup" settings - some worked - some say I am not Admin enough. Well the computer is an old hand-me-down - so I am it's only Admin anymore. This laptop was used when it was setup and given to me with someone who probably has skills like my "readers" (YOU). My laptop is old and rickety. I had great gear at work for a long time - and what I really need I can't buy at the moment - buying a new one of a quality that doesn't really suit would not be a "patch" it would be a set back. I often use a lot of Adobe creatitive and other like things. I will need to be downloading a trial version of Captivate and following along with Lynda.com as I brush up on that product.. At this point changing from doc to doc is hard, doing a search to the hard drive takes minutes, filling in an online application? Searching online? I am using my cellphone rather than deal with it when I can. UGH!! I am probably taking 5 hours for tasks that should take me 1 hour. The type is always lagging way behind etc etc etc. FYI - I have NO software to redownload, no versions of Windows etc. I don't know how to use Linux. Oh yes - no surprise it's running pretty hot. Whatever I did run in the last week - if they said get a report I did. I do not know as I write this how to find them. I am attaching some screen shots of the task manager on 4/17. And now. Thank you very much. Quite a few rely on my income - and I will never get there if I don't get this moving with ease and less of an inferno. --------------------------- I don't know what comes next - how to find out if you've answered me ---------------------
