installed Constant Guard, computer immediately started running really, really slowly, internet browsing was jacked up, and upon restarting computer, I would have to kill it in the task manager just to get my programs to show up. 15 min process. And my computer is a beast. Uninstalled CG... BAM. back to normal blazing speeds.
