1st thing: You are using 2 Anti-virus programs (AVG and McAfee). This will cause conflicts and slow-downs. Remove 1 of them (Personally, I dislike them both. I prefer Kaspersky, or if you're looking for something free, Avast. But some experts like AVG, and some like McAfee...)
2nd thing: How much RAM do you have? How fast is your processor? And how much free space do you have available on your hard drive?
3rd thing: Please download and run hijackthis Do a scan and then save a log. Take the log and ATTACH IT (do not post) to your next post.
We do not like to post hijackthis logs in sections other than the malware forum as we do not want to encourage people to post malware issues in this forum.
I am not looking for malware. I am looking for what programs or combinations of programs might cause this behavior. If I notice any malware, I will redirect you to the malware forum.
If you post a hijackthis log in this forum, several trusted techs will come to your house and eat all of your Ritz crackers, Cheeze Doodals and any sweet pickles you have in your fridge. We will also put our feet up on all of your coffee tables. This is no joke. We'll do it. It's not pretty.

Just a pointer incase you don't know your processor type or speed: Start > Right click My Computer > Propterties. It will be there, and/or in the black loading screen when you boot up your PC.
I hope you understood this. I just explained it a little simpler as you mentioned being new to computing.
