Assuming you have plenty of empty harddrive space for virtual memory,
and you don't have too many legitimate programs running in the background
(how many icon are there next to your clock?), I would start by looking for
spyware. Download these two free programs, update the definitions, and scan
with both (don't assume the first one found everything, no matter how much
Spybot Search & Destroy -
If that hasn't speeded things up or they find nothing serious(only
cookies), try searching for trojans with Stinger. Nothing to update. The
program you download is always current.
If you still have problems after that, get one of these free anti virus
programs, update the definitions and run a scan:
Anti Vir PE Classic -
Let us know how it goes. If none of this helps, there are other steps
