It's interesting that while FileMon is running, the chatter would stop??? There are no suspect apps. A single process might use only a few megs of memory, or it might use several gigabytes. There is a recent hidden search added into updates and on W-7 and up, thankfully just turning on more of the built in security switches you find in settings kills off
Other than that it was just standard programs. After a few minutes it started to drive me crazy though. That would've been my first suggestion. This post has been flagged and will be reviewed by our staff.

Point is "simple tasks" is such a vauge term that it is useless in the measurement of expectations or the quantitative evaluation of a computers performance.

It must have been some malware, because a reformat fixed the problem.

No antivirus is going to catch everything. In the meantime I also had MSN running and maybe an windows explorer window open but that was all.. Also, is there a way to minimize the swapfile usage and stuff, other than increasing Physical ram?

Please post a followup Hijack this log, and say if your problems persist. You could measure various apsects of system performace before running the tune up program, then run it afterwards and investigate the results in a controlled but diverse scenario.
