I have about 5 Dell computers that all of a sudden started running extremly slow, to the point it had to be replaced. Does anyone know what the suggested fixes are? They are coming up clean viruses and syware.

sorry if you have tried these already

1/ go to Start / Run and type in %temp%
and right click and delete everything you can in this window

2/ go to Start / Run and type in msconfig then select Startup
and uncheck any programs not required

Use both Adaware SE and Spybot S&D , with Spybot in the advanced mode select settings then ignored products and uncheck everything you find before scanning.
You can also try defragging your system too.

copy and paste this into your search for files window box too


and right click and delete anything that is found
