Disabled nod32
Uninstall nod32

Can you provide me a list of your computer specs? CPU and RAM?

Both are running nod antivirus 5 and also spybot but not really much else i can only put it down to some sort of virus scanning i plan to re format the laptop this evening and a program by program to see what i can get, oh also I'm using firefox 4.0.1 but doubt that's the issue as the same thing happened on chrome, tbf both machines are running slower than normal and look to have a higher than needed ram usage!

Alright give us an update. If you haven't reformat the computer, try using this technique.

Ok so i did a fresh install in stead of msconfig just to be deadly sure
updated firefox
installed avg to replace nod as it runs light
all was fine and now around a week in the problem is back
both in firefox safe mode and standard mode with add on's enabled also running that laptop with low windows graphics to speed it up this cannot be normal for an i7 with switchable graphics can it?
still within warranty time to give hp hell?
