This could be related to Malware, or bad programs. I would suggest three things. A malware scan, a maintenance cleaning, and checking your start-up applications. These steps will make your machine quicker and more secure, if executed periodically.

To run a malware scan goto: www.trendmicro.com/housecall

And follow the instructions on the page, let this run, until the results dialogue window pops up, this make take a while. 1-3+ hours. Just let it run, you do not need to attend it once it tells you it is scanning.

For maintance cleaning, visit this site to download an application called CCleaner
http://www.filehippo.com/download/file/df09062a5bdcfd3a0a0cf31f7117c0cb566fe5b698d89848911da4e434cb72f5/

After these steps.
To adjust what programs you have starting up in the beginning:

Start > Run > Type "MSCONFIG" > Click the Startup Tab then un-check any program entries that you don't need starting up in the beginning. This does not remove them from your computer, just from starting up in the beginning and taking resources in the background. When you need the program, you can simply click on its link in your start menu. It is your choice what you keep and what to remove.

Please take a moment to rate this solution if you are 100% satisfied.

I say defrag,disk cleanup, and removing unwanted programs will help you.Also try TweakXP a great software for optimising performance.Try stopping some startup programs and remove programs that use internet.

I cannt get my facebook account to come up


Point your web browser at http://www.facebook.com

If another account comes up, log out of it by clicking the little gear icon in the upper-right then clicking "Log Out."

If you then still can't log in to your account, click the "Forgot your password?" link located just below the password box on the login page.

Download rate very slow


Hey, the download speed of a file mainly depends on the speed of ur intenet connection.It also depends on the browser u use nad how many add-ons are enabled.Use only safari browser or mozilla firefox and disable all the unnecessary add-ons and then download ur files.
For much faster speed, u can purchase or free download the trial version of Internet Download Manager or Download Accelerator Plus...
