Hi I hope by the time you read this you have already solve your problem if
not I recomend you try to intall an antivirus software from www.mcafee.com to
remove any hiden virus in your system and also install an antispyware program
in your computer. spayware programs are common cause of cmputers getting very
slow and usualy is dificult to notice their presence in your computer the
only way to see them is with the antispyware program
also do a disck clean up to delete any unused files in your hard drive.
go to start,programs,accesories,system tools,disck clean up before you click
on ok make sure PC HEALTH don't have the check mark DO NOT CLEAN PC HEALTH.
everything else can be deleted by clicking on OK the next thing you do is a
hard disck defracmentatin by following the same steps above but click on
disck defracmenter that is just below the disk clean up, this is for windows
xp
Hope this info is hlpfull to you good luck
