Wouldn't you rather see if you can identify what it is and address that (if possible) instead? Unless you're running 512mb RAM that screen-shot is showing bugger all resource use.

What's your CPU usage like? Do you actually use your PC in a way that invokes TWAIN, such as any form of imaging device; camera, scanner, printer, smart-phone or tablet even?

Often times what you'll find as the culprit of slowdowns is a crap-load of unneeded apps running through msconfig, among others, bogging your hard disk down over time. Can also be profile issues, you might find creating a new account and logging into it makes a world of difference to everyday use. Could also be the fact that your AV subscription has expired as 'conspiracy theorist' as that sounds (seriously, don't pay for AV). Symantec do all sorts of inappropriate stuff to an unsubscribed PC.

i think its all going better now guys. thanks a lot for all the tips and information.

i went with aviro and did a scan and it got rid of 5 problems "allegedly" i also cleaned my computer and took it a part and got the dust out of there and its running all good.

i have noticed that once the scan is done that there is no twunk_32.exe* 32 in the task manager anymore. And i haven't been lagging out for like 3 minutes every time i open 3 browsers.

just amazing how all i did was click on a link and then its infected.

Not really. You're running an admin account. Do you at least have UAC enabled? Not that it'll stop all known exploits. I'd still recommend you run Malwarebytes and include it in your regular schedule. It picks up certain threats that AV's won't by their very nature.

For when **** hits the fan, ComboFix is really good. Takes awhile to go through all its different scans and what not but cures what ails ya computer!
