do you have any spyware tools ...adware tools ...antivirus..if so have you updated and run them recently...have you defragged your system...have you installed any programs or hardware or drivers about the time you started having problems..

I have not installed any programs. I keep antivirus and spyware updated. Several times a week. I have not defragmented my system. I am have been a little skeptical about that because other people have said it made things worse.

the first thing we are going to do is turn off indexing ....its a resource hog and if you aren't searching for things on your computer 10 times a day it will only slow down your system....
click on start...my computer...right click on C: drive....properties...on the general tab..unckeck ...allow indexing on this drive....if you do not have the box on your system...
then START...RUN...type in SERVICES.MSC...then OK...scroll down until you find INDEXING SERVICE...click on it and in the general tab set it to DISABLED...then exit

next get diskeeper lite

defragging does not hurt your computer...you do not have to defrag in safe mode with diskeeper lite and its 10 times as fast than the defragger that comes with windows
