Windows 7 slow down

Sheldon Livingston
Last Modified: 2015-04-02
A user complains that they have 2 computers that slow down around 1:15pm everyday for 5 minutes.  Slowing down to nearly being non functional.

Sure enough at 1:11PM everyday several things happen (according to the event log):

> Microsoft Antimalware has removed history of malware and other potentially unwanted software.
> The WinHTTP Web Proxy Auto-Discovery Service service entered the running state.
> The Windows Modules Installer service entered the running state.
> The start type of the Background Intelligent Transfer Service service was changed from demand start to auto start.
> The Application Experience service entered the running state.
> The Multimedia Class Scheduler service entered the running state.
> Microsoft Antimalware signature version has been updated.
> The Windows Error Reporting Service service entered the running state.

I have to assume that these things, or one of them, is causing the issue.

Anyone know off hand if this is normal?
