lol, no I didn't mean that! Sorry, I should have been clearer. What I meant
was that I hadn't changed anything near the time that the problem started.

Well yes, something's obviously changed. I'm just trying to find out what.
There's never any more than 3 or 4 taskbar icons running. I know "it worked
before and I've not changed anything" sounds like a pathetic excuse but I was
at university from January and when I came back home at Easter was when I
noticed the problem.

Thanks for all your help so far. If you could think of anything else at all
that could have caused the computer to slow down, I'd really appreciate
hearing about it.

Thanks again,
