Question about PC Desktops
Boot to safe mode by tapping the F8 key on boot until you get the boot options screen, then select "Safe Mode" and then your OS selection and then click "Yes" on the pop up that should appear. Once in safe mode, run a full virus scan with you favorite Anti Virus program (hopefully updated virus definitions though), and hopefully you'll find some problems that you can solve there.
Otherwise you should look at upgrading to at least Windows XP, as Microsoft no longer supports 95,98, 98SE, or ME (at least that was the last news I got about them) and that is a serious viral vulnerability problem for PC's that are accessing the internet with these unsupported Operating Systems.

several things to try.
1:- run disk defragmenter from start/all programs/accesories/system tools. also use disk cleanup from the same menu.
2:- remove non-essential programs from the startup menu.
3:- Add more system RAM/Memory if your motherboard will take it.

Press the F12 key on your Sony Vaio keyboard. This will enter the computer into the built-in restore mode. Note that depending on the model of Sony Vaio, you may have to press either the F11 key or the ESC key to enter this restore mode. This must be done before your operating system begins to load. If you see the Windows logo appear on screen, you'll have to restart and try again.
Choose the option on screen that is most appropriate to your needs. You will be presented with three options: you can either create a set of recovery discs, attempt to repair your operating system's installation, or restore your operating system. Repairing your operating system will attempt to fix your computer without deleting any of your personal files. Restoring your operating system will delete everything on your hard drive and return your computer to its original factory settings.
Wait for the restore process to complete. Depending on the type of restore you've tried, you may have to wait as little as a few minutes and as much as an hour or more. When the process is finished, the computer will automatically restart itselff
