    is this a recent problem? what are your pc stats? such as ram, processor and hard drive size and hard drive free space. Most of this can be found by right clicking on "my computer" and selecting properties. the window that pops up will have your processor info and the ram info. the hard drive info can be found in "my computer" by right clicking the "c" drive and selecting properties.

A lot of these things can be fixed by shutting of the programs that start up with windows. You can see all the programs that do this in your msconfig/startup.

Just be careful not to disable the programs that windows needs to start.

Make sure you have a restore point set and files backed up just in case
