That is not unusual. One thing I'd do is IMAGE what you have now and then restore and older one. I defrag weekly, clean registry weekly, and scan for viruses every other day or so (using Spybot SD, Microsoft Security Essentials, and Malewarebytes, just recently uninstalled AVG). You must know only two menu items to click.

Even when the PC has come back up to the desktop and appears to be doing nothing....*hands off.* It really IS doing something--you just can't see it. It takes a longer time and it is advised not to run any applications in the computer including the screen savers, while running disk defragmentation. Thanks for your comments, glad i could be of help. If it works better, well, you could get updated files from the new image you just made.
