Question about Computers & Internet
This is what I would do, first consider what parts the computer has, cpu, memory, hard drive and video card.
Then which windows it has on it?
If the parts are decent, for example pentium 4 2GHZ with 512MB RAM, 40GB hard drive and generic normal video card.
system is windows XP.
Then most likely reason is full hard drive, mixed up windows - too many programs installed and running at the same time.
in that case
Best solution is to back up any important files, then do a fresh install of windows, empty the computer completely and start fresh. If it is a software problem, the computer will work like new after the re-install of which you will find step by step instructions (windows XP) Here http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575559-step_by_step_howto_install_windows_xp
Follow those steps and you got a good working computer again.
Cost? Windows Xp installation disc if you do not have one, borrow, or maybe download (free, but not recommended) Or buy. you will also need Time and patience.
That will be 10 times better than any software, 10 times better than any online service that would probably eventually tell you to do this. And it is probably cheaper than taking it to a repair shop - if you have the disc, it wont cost you anything aside time.

If you know
exactly the size and shape of the coffee table you want I suggest you to
purchase one online I'll save you precious time and frankly it's much easier
than going to a furniture store. If you haven't decided yet which size you want
and you're not really getting ahead I suggest you to visit the local furniture
store and have a look at the tables they got, I'll give you a better
understanding on which coffee table you should pick.
