    Hey guys,

    I was curious about the Windows Speech Recognition function in Windows 7, so I ran the setup and such. When it was done, I noticed that the mic couldn't pick up my voice very well and the extra training thing ran incredibly slow.
    So I said "screw it" and closed the program.

    However, ever since then, my computer has been running noticeably slow. I checked my processes- clean, restarted my computer- no help, scanned for malware- nothing.
    Is there a way to reset the Speed Recognition as if I had never run the setup? Perhaps anything in the registry?

    Thanks

    What exactly were you looking for in the process list?
    Did you make sure to click "show processes from all users"?

    Yeah I did. Anything related to Windows devices of the sort. I usually know which processes I have running, so anything unfamiliar would stick out to me.

    I fixed it with a simple System Restore. I happened to have a restore point yesterday in the early AMs so it's all good.

    Thanks Rydian!

    Huh.

    I was actually going to suggest a System Restore when I saw the thread the first time, but I didn't for some reason. [​IMG]

    Now I kinda wish I did. [​IMG]
