Guys, I'm very sorry I forgot to mention these two key things

- In Safe Mode without Networking windows is extremely fast, no lag, no waiting time for anything
- If I pull the ethernet cord before windows boots up in normal mode, once again it's immediatley operational and is very fast

The problem starts when the internet slows down or if I cut off internet access sometimes after windows had booted up and done its thing with internet access.
I just went to safe mode to make sure and it worked perfectly fine, I also booted it up without the ethernet cord and I could start using all my programs, folders and everything as soon as the desktop showed up with no lag or anything.

Ok cool so we know its not a Windows or hardware issue. Now open msconfig and go to the Startup tab and uncheck EVERYTHING and then reboot normally and see if you can replicate the issue. This way we can narrow down to see if it's a crappy program that's starting when Windows starts that's causing the issue. If you dont have the issue then it's one of the programs on the Startup tab that's causing the issue.

IIRC Spybot had a thing that would check for malicious startup programs, I never really liked unchecking everything but I do remember back in the day when I'd use Kaspersky Internet Security as my main security with spybot, adaware and some other stuff inactive on the side I'd always check for bad stuff with spybot...assuming that's still good.

There was also another tool that would list stuff even spybot wouldn't list and IIRC you had to post your list on a forum somewhere and people there would go over your list and tell you if there was anything malicious on there.

Disabling everything from startup seems a bit risky to me since some things might not work right afterwards, but if I have to I'll do it.

I just looked at all my startup entries.
I know what each of them does

but
I have Java in my startup and THAT thing always and I mean always lags my computer when sites start it.

Do I need that crap in my starup? If not I'll disable it
I think that might be the culprit

Not to speak too soon
but it appears disabling java on startup might have fixed my issue

Do you have wireless internet?

As crazy as it sounds, I used to have wireless for my desktop and whenever my signal was low or the internet slowed down, my whole system slowed down. I later found out it was the PCI wireless adapter I had in my PC that was the cause. For some reason it ****ed my entire system over if conditions weren't perfect for it.

nope, no wireless
I keep saying I should get a wireless router because I have one at my grandparents and keep putting it off lol

Anyway again, not to speak too soon
but getting rid of java on startup seems to have worked beautifully

Kaboom. Ok let us know if you continue to have the issue anytime later and we'll go from there.

Do you play minecraft? If not, you're probably better off just uninstalling java unless you know you need it for something, it's kind of a huge security flaw waiting to be exploited. You may also have the 32 bit version installed, I'd recommend uninstalling and finding the 64 bit version, or perhaps vice versa. That's just a really weird problem for it to be causing, and I know it's really common to have the wrong version installed because the oracle site is just a mess.

That actually should just be the updater. If not it was a program running through java.
