My machine has suddenly started working very slow. I have TM always up to date along with Windows updates on automatic. Does anyone see anything suspicious below?

There are no malware issues showing in that log. Slowness could be from the large number of processes evidently running - I suggest you look seriously at the items in your startup list -many are reflected in those O4 entries, and cut those which are of no use, or which can be started only as you need them. Any item which starts often stays resident in memory.. eg, updaters remain to monitor the time and date....
Defragmented lately?


I did offline defrag with PerfectDisk twice to be on the safe side. I have deleted all temp files from browser, I don't think I have done any tweaks or anything since this started...

Thanks for looking... any suggestions on which I can get rid of?


Rosie, it is various O4 entries that are possibly bogging your sys. A lot of them I do not recognise, but typically they are starting processes to speed stratup just in case you do use them, or are update checks. They all stay resident, taking up RAM. At a quick glance the only ones I would keep would be the Trend Micro and Zonealarm entries....
Do you use
Adobe Reader professionally? IF you have the paid version, iognore me, but I think it is a pig [free version...] and I dumped it for Foxit... does all the same things... better.
