This WU was folding just fine until yesterday. I have it backup every 15 minutes. was seeing a frame get finished every 4 timed backup. Check this one out. I shut off folding and restarted this morning:

Has anyone seen anything like this? Suddenly taking forever when it was working just fine.

I have noticed that my machine is being a bit sluggish to do regular things (open a browser window, open or close a program ... etc). Everything was working just fine until this frame started to render.

Any recomendations?

OK.... I rebooted the machine and all seems to be back to normal. Don't know why it freaked out like that without anything provoking it.

I've seen it once or twice, rebooting as you've already done seems to cure it. One thing you have to be watch is that if the WU is not making progress then it throws up an error and deletes the unit. I'm not sure after how long it does this but you look to have caught it in time :)

Likely a stray bit of malware or spybot that came from a site visit. May be time to ensure the system is sanitary. Even if the unit isn't used for browsing, a port attack may find a vulnerable entry for viral or malware pestilence.
You may be over-cautious about forced checkpoints. Just setting the checkpoint references for restarts should be sufficient. Have not had a WU failure in quite a while due to checkpoint failure.
