Hi,
I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop that has been gradually getting slower and slower to the point where I almost can't use it now. It started getting slower about three months ago when I noticed that games were running slower. Eventually everything stopped working and now opening a folder and moving it around my screen causes my cpu usage to jump to over 70%. My Hijack This logs were fine, I cleaned my fan with compressed air, formatted all drives and reinstalled Windows. My laptop doesn't feel unusually warm or anything, so I'm not sure what the problem is. Any help would be appreciated.
I'm running Windows XP professional, SP 2.
