Have you installed any new programs lately?
Have you run a virus/spyware scan lately?

Do you run any type of a startup manager? It may not be a recent program installed but the amount of programs that start up with windows that is bogging you down.

You can get some good free ones or just type msconfig in the RUN command box to see what you have starting up. You can modify from there. If you aren't sure what is what do a google on them :)

Good luck.

I agree with Py too. Do you run spyware, anti-virus and ad-aware programs and keep them updated....this is huge reason most of America has problems with their computer :frown:
