Computer is acting SO slow

Recommended Posts

Yesterday while I was on my computer, a pop-up came up sating that Dr.Watson Debugger had to shut down or something. After that my computer started acting just a tad bit wonky (a little slower), but nothing too extream.

Then last night it starting moving at a snails pace and it seemed like whenever I tried to open too many things at once, it wold just give up and every icon and program and my task bar would disappear, leaving just my background.

I was finally able to get MBAM and Avira Antivir going and doing scans...and they've been scanning for SIX HOURS!!!

So far (and I think they're almost done...hopefully), they haven't picked up on anything or found anything.

Any idea what could be up with my computer (I'm workin' on a laptop now)?

Should I post a HiJack This and MBAM log (in the other forums)??

Thank you for your time
