This article by George Ou is the BEST guide I have seen for de-gunking and speeding up your PC. I have used this process on about 200 computers (I'm an IT tech at a mid-size company).

The only place where I depart from George's instructions is that I don't uncheck everything in Autoruns, only the third party software. Keep in mind that if you go too far, all you need to do is boot into safe mode (tap F8 on startup) and re-enable what I just disabled. The first time I did this it took me about 3 hours to get it right, but once you get the hang of it, you can tune-up a PC in 15-30 minutes (amaze your friends!). 
If this doesn't take care of all of your problems, install spybot Search and Destroy for Spyware removal
and AVG Free for virus scan

NOTE: All apps linked here and in in the George Ou article are Free. AVG will try to get you to purchase their 'suite' but the free anti-virus gets the job done. If you have Norton or McAfee already installed on your computer, and you are paid up, then don't bother replacing it with AVG. If your Norton/McAfee is expired - uninstall it BEFORE you install AVG. Two AV on 1 PC = bad.

This pc acer z3751 is 2wks old. If i am held up at an internet site for more than a minute, and this happens a lot for the computer is very slow and doesn't yet have any programmes and at the rate of...

Acer z3751 has mother board problems especially when the operating system is being updated. So far Acer service only replaces its mother board when there is a complaint of auto shut down and of having difficulty in starting the systems. I would advise not to replace the mother board if there is such a problem after warranty period and if possible try to extend the warranty period as long as possible to minimise the cost of repairing.

Acer Aspire AST180-ED380M was working very slow and locking up; did a system restore; then had to reinstall operating system (computer error message); now it seems to time out and reboot automatically,...

Sounds like the CPU is overheating. The usual cause is the CPU heatsink and fan need cleaning. Take the side cover off and have a look see. Also, it's possible that the heatsink may have come loose and isn't making good contact with the CPU. In either case you may need some CPU paste. Also check any case fans to make sure they are working.
After checking those things, suspect the power supply, memory, and possibly the hard drive.

Monitor or Desktop itself problem?

that status line was designed together with your OS, it seems that your PC was getting slow in boot..

A number of factors, having little to do with the age or capabilities or your system, can create excruciating system slowness. They include the following:

Operating System
File System (how you've organized files on your PC)

The Windows OS (operating system) is notoriously inefficient, which can affect performance. The file system also impacts Windows and hardware performance. How you work with applications can improve system speed, as can some basic hardware updates.
