I have Vista Home premium for 2 years. About a week ago it slowed to a\npoint where it may take 5 minutes to respond. Task manager Performance\nshows about 50% CPU usaage but Processes says 98% idle. If I start in\nsafe mode Task Manager is the same but I seem to get a little better\nresponse. I use a free version of AVG.\nThis problem seems to show up a lot in Google but each one seems to get\nresolved a different way. I tried some things others did but it has had\nno affect. The last time I started there were about 10 SVCHOST\nprocesses. I ended a few but nothing changed.\nIt takes a long time for one to end because the response is so slow.\nAnd it gets slower the longer I am up.\n\nWhere do I start to get to the bottom of this?
