Ok i just found the problem.

The perpetrator was.........THE TASK MANAGER

So all i did was just simply restart my pc and for whatever reason everything worked just fine as it has for the past year...then i open the task manager...close it...and everything slows down to a crawl again...

I restarted my PC AGAIN and the problem has vanished....by opening the task manager and closing it my PC turns in to a snail...I have absolutely no idea why.

Its because you're a patriots fan.

He didn't say anything about the Patriots' record and yet you did a marvelous job of providing evidence to prove his theory correct.

Anyone can be a bandwagon fan to a team with a good record.

I don't watch football, but I loathe Pats fans. They're the Yankees of football. Well, them and the Cowboys.
