A couple of weeks back it developed a response time issue in that commands were not actioned immediately but hesitated.
<Win_key> & R will immediately bring up te Run box. Type in CMD for a command window and it opens immediately however, it takes about 5 seconds before it comes back with the C:\ prompt.
If I then type a command - ipconfig or ping www.bbc.co.uk it takes about 10 seconds for the config to be displayed or the first ping result to appear (and it is correct).
I tried a system restore - no change.
When trying to diagnose it I started SPECCY to see if there was anything that looked a little odd - the only thing that showed up and was removed was a scheduler item. However, with SPECCY running, the response time for ipconfig or ping commands is back to normal - immediate response.
Close SPECCY and the problem returns, restart it and problem disappears. Reboot - problem remains until SPECCY is running ...
AV including McAfee Stinger and Malware bytes show nothing untoward.
Any ideas what has happened and why SPECCY seems to cure it?
